It's by far my favorite YTL album, and I really love the look they decided to go for with it, but unlike The Saint, I'm not putting up with this bullshit anymore. The standard variant goes for like $24-25. It's one thing when they charge a few bucks extra. $40 is a fully dickheaded price.

Oh hey, a limited variant on a critically acclaimed album went up the day after their once-a-year promo expired.  What a coincidence – if I didn't know any better I'd say that was intentional!

Last year was The Strokes, right? Newbury does some slimy stuff, but I guess I can't fault them for timing a sale around a new release.

If they had released this when that coupon code was still valid, someone in the Boston area would have been fired immediately.

I love that album but I'm not falling for your tricks Newbury! I don't see the appeal of these "limited" variants coming out years after the original release unless you don't own the record already. Loser editions, early birds, etc. are great and reward fans but this is obviously a sucker tactic that I've fallen for in the past.

As overdone as splatter variants have become in the last couple of years, can I ask why it's a particularly poor choice for this album?

I feel like splatters should be reserved for aggressive type of music. Like metal or hardcore punk... that's all.
