Not thrilled with the same label on each album (disc one has "1" on both sides and disc two has "2" on both sides, I can already tell the sides apart by the length of the first track on each side tho) but it sounds great. Mine did NOT have the RSD sticker.

Same. 

 

In comparing it to my bootleg, the low end is much better on the official presing, but I must say the boot is really damn good. Maybe thats of some comfort for people who missed out on the official pressing (assuming a widespread release doesn't happen).

I got my LP in and it had a small crease in the bottom left corner which I am ok with. But my Boys Don't Cry magazine was beat up, had ripped pages, and was in all around poor shape. I submitted a PayPal claim because when you pay $100 for a book you expect it to be shipped better than a bible mailer. 

Update on this, instead of replacing my magazine they just decided to refund my whole purchase (Vinyl and Magazine)! What the heck all I wanted was a new magazine and I can't even order a replacement on the site anymore :(

That's because you opened a claim.

Yeah. I assume they all are, but mine is from the first run, so I don't know for sure if all the runs have gatefold sleeves.

did you save it?  if it's a gatefold, i like to cut it out and save it in the sleeve and sometimes save the original receipt.  otherwise, i keep the shrink on with sticker intact.

When I buy a record, I like to peel off the hype sticker and place it in a mylar sleeve. 

 

I then throw out the vinyl and jacket. What the hell am I supposed to do with those things?

Yeah I just peel it off and place it on the outside of the sleeve.

Nah, I don't give a shit about that kind of stuff.

I know, right? Who would have thought I'd collect music to listen to it, not just because it's collectible or hard to come by?
