This thread is making me realize that I haven't listened to Like Clockwork in a while and I don't own it on vinyl.  Perhaps I should remedy both of those.

The deluxe version of '...Like Clockwork' is one of my favourite vinyl packages I own.

Ditto, along with my OG Lullabies. Both are gorgeous.

I wound up triple-dipping on the three different covers for LC (red deluxe, blue, and black). Hope the new LP gets some nice treatment.

Bingo!

$16 and pressed and Pallas?  This is at least going on my want list for when I have some extra cash!

Edit: I see that price is Collector's Choice who has a habit of putting stuff up under the wrong variant.

Ya, as is the case with a lot of the semi-major labels nowadays, they spread themselves too thin on variants, thus leaving the best package out there unsold and eventually in the bargain bin.

Definitely let me know!  I tried to email them and ask but it says Collectors-Choice has their contact form available.  I remember I ordered form them one time and it was supposed to be a clear variant but it was a black version.  They have something down in their fine print that says they can't gaurantee the color variant because it uses the same UPC (but somehow it always ends up with the standard edition under the color version listing, never the other way around).

I read the "no cameo" news over the weekend - pretty surprising. Going to rock regardless.

Good I'm glad. I think a pure QOTSA was missing in like clockwork. I feel like it wasn't a real QOTSA album with all those cameos...

I'm glad there will be no cameos. That most likely means they just focused on a being a solid unit as a band and hopefully began the writing process by just going in and jamming out some ideas and it will hopefully be less contrived than last time. Also, that let's me assume that Jon must have drummed the whole album and if he doesn't get a moment to tear that shit apart, I'll know that "over-songwriting" got in the way.

Ya, those cameos really ruined a great QOTSA album! Wait...
