  1. Actually, they know how to GOUGE..... as in, "APC is GOUGING their fanbase with a $125 box set of trinkets." They apparently don't know how to GAUGE.... as in, "APC didn't GAUGE how little interest there would be in a $125 box set." Sorry for the grammar police post. (Not to be confused with the ganja police.)
  2. Absolutely all over that clear Deadwing! I was also gonna grab the clear Lightbulb Sun, since my original is standard black.... But I see they removed the 3 bonus tracks? That's a shame. Probably just gonna hang onto my OP for the extra songs. (They did the same thing with In Absentia, although it's just a single bonus track...) I'm not sure I can justify rebuying In Absentia.... I did some hunting years ago and finally tracked down the blue marbled version. Looks and sounds gorgeous. And apparently goes for insane money on Discogs now....
  3. Splatter vinyl sounds fine for me... Just a bit of noise in spots. Miles better than the (not very good) 6131 pressings of Sprained Ankle. Every time I've seen her, her merch has been completely sold out of vinyl. Sounds like that's changing for this tour.
  4. Random tip: Keep a Discogs alert for the OP Bone Machine. I did that a few years ago, eventually got a NM pressing for around $50 (including shipping) from a European seller. Worth it for me. That said, I still haven't found Rain Dogs or HA&V in the wild. Did get Swordfishtrombones and Franks eventually. A bit baffled why Rhino/WB stopped the Tom reissue campaign after Small Change.... The rest of those Asylum records could easily be repressed, and then the Island ones to follow.
  5. Agreed on RTL.... I snagged the 2 x 45 RPM version when I got back into vinyl, and was amazed how terrible it sounded. When it went OOP I sold it for a nice price, thankfully. The single-disc version was the same mastering, but 33 1/3 RPM so sonics are even worse. The 2016 got it right... To the point that I had an original Elektra that I sold after grabbing it, as SQ was very close and the 2016 was much quieter.
  6. Follow up that Broken is absolutely dead silent, both sides and the 7". A rarity with modern vinyl. Sound is similar to the original CD, though I haven't A/Bed them. It's not cut especially hot, and I didn't notice any additional compression compared to the original mix (which was fairly compressed, as that's the NIN sound). Definitely sounds better than it did on my shitty tape deck back in '92.
  7. Placed an order, after a week hadn't heard anything, shot a msg to Sandbag.... And they got back to me the next day with a tracking # showing arrival in 2 days. Coincidentally (or not), looks like the shipment was mailed out between the time I sent the msg and the time they responded with the equivalent of "Look! It already shipped!!" I'm not saying contact them directly if you don't hear anything soon, but it can't hurt. Squeaky wheels, grease, etc. FYI shipment did show up in 2 days (today). Not the best mailer but there was bubble wrap. Fragile had a couple bent corners but if you're not packing a heavy set like that one correctly, it's bound to happen. Broken looked fine. I'll take it.
  8. The Robyn self-titled album from 2005 (but not released in the US until 2008) is probably my favorite pop album of that decade. Maybe the whole millennium. (Yeah, even better than CRJ.) Body Talk is better known and also classic, but Robyn is a little weirder and takes more chances, plus it feels more personal too. Not sure it's necessarily "80s pop" all the way but "Konichiwa Bitches" sounds like L'Trimm, "Should Have Known" sounds like an outtake from Sign O' The Times, and "Be Mine" and "Handle Me" are Madonna-worthy. Also, "Every Heartbeat" is the best single of the 2000s. (In my opinion... but it's the right one.)
  9. PO - Brand New - Science Fiction

    I don't think "classic" means what you think it means.
  10. Had the "unique" pleasure last night of introducing three millennial females to the wonder that is CRJ's last album. One of them in particular really dug it. Said the songs sounded like 80s Madonna, but contemporary... which is pretty accurate. TS needs to just go full 80s. C'mon Swifty T.
  11. Ah, they dragged me back on board for this one..... Thanks to whoever posted the $10 off code. Seemed to work fine for me, although I signed up as a "new" member instead of renewing my existing one. Same info though, and still got my same referral code back. Weird.
  12. Missed out on the Brand New earlier this week, snagged the 6131 variant. I guess that works out. (Also, anyone else really like both BN *and* JB? No...?) I've seen her twice, both pretty small crowds. (First time there weren't even 100 people.) No sign of vinyl either time. Her tour manager actually told me she was grateful they sold out as "records are HEAVY."
  13. I haven't seen NIN as much as some on this thread, but I've seen 'em a fair amount of times on a lot of different tours, and they've never disappointed. I guess my claim to fame is seeing them 3 times supporting TDS.... Once at the Fox in ATL (with Marilyn Manson opening) which STILL might be my favorite show.... And then supporting Bowie.... And then late in the tour when they'd changed the whole setlist around. It was cool to get so many PHM songs back then... I don't think Trent does many of them anymore beyond Head Like A Hole and Terrible Lie. (Sanctified was played on the HM tour, which was a very cool version.) I doubt I'm gonna get The Only Time or Sin or Something I Can Never Have again. What else.... Seeing With Teeth in Charlotte where a rain delay stopped the show halfway through.... When they came back, Trent basically blew up the setlist and played Dead Souls, Reptile, Get Down Make Love, and Down In It (with the whole crowd screaming "Rain rain go away"). Took a good show and made it great. Oh, and the NIN/JA tour had lots of deep cuts: Home, Metal, Non-Entity, I'm Afraid Of Americans, Head Down, Suck... THAT was pretty fantastic. Honestly I've heard Somewhat Damaged and Burn more than I can count. But I'll never turn down the former. Somewhat Damaged is almost always a highlight of any show.
  14. Although, if you've ever heard the original, it basically IS most of the song (besides the vocal melody). I mean... It's not a subtle sample.
  15. Arcade Fire- Everything Now

    Possibly the second best song to be titled "Electric Blue."
