Wait did you seriously just say a signature on the grooves doesn't do anything? It's harder to hear on a picture disc but your stylus hates scraping through the marker. If this isn't on the sleeve or the center it's ruined and not worth keeping unless you frame it.

I mean, I guess yeah, it hurts the stylus, but not the record, and I didn't ask for a signed picture discs on the grooves, I met Dream Theater and they just decided to sign the picture disc on the grooves, I wasn't about to tell them no, and maybe it does hurt the music, but like you said, you can't hear it on picture discs. I honestly don't care about that record anyways, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Wait, so they are suddenly only pressing 4,000?  This makes me think that this is gonna see a wide release as a picture disc but that the pre-order will be autographed....

 

Why is always hip-hop releases that move the goal posts?

LOL I figured they knew this all along. Was genuinely surprised that a popular rap album was scheduled to release with vinyl on release day, but nahhh.

This wasn't what I was expecting and I thought it was ok first listen but by the third I'm in love with it. Hopefully it's decent sounding for a picture disc because the production really is great.

I was in the same boat, after the grit of Summertime '06 the first run through had me perplexed but two or so more listens and I'm loving it all. Never bothered ordering the picture disc and just hoping, albeit probably in vain, for a regular press at some point. If it doesn't happen I'll live but this is definitely going to wind up on my AOTY list.

I'm confused.  Is this different from the autographed picture disc he was selling on his site?  Just without the autograph?

Yeah, while the picture disc is cool and all I would almost rather have a signed normal ass black LP
