The other splatter is $50 more.

 

Not $50.

 

$50 MORE.

I'm all about making a dollar, and to each their own but that's just garbage if you ask me.  Someone will buy it, I just hope it isn't someone that never spins it. If I'm buying a record to display, I'm buying 2 so I can spin one. But I only do that with as many mewithoutYou and Alexisonfire vinyl I can. Mostly.

More than happy with indie version here. I'm by no means a Brand New fanboy though. 

This. I'd be happy with just  the red/blue variant and that's all I'm aiming for. Worst case scenario I'll pick up a black copy on the cheap during a holiday sale this winter.

I would bite on a $17 Amazon prime copy. More expensive than that and I'm happy here in the cheap seats watching y'all play the game.

Also, I re-listened to Deja and Devil/God yesterday and this is Brand New's best record, IMO. I forgot how many cheesy (but fun) moments are on those albums. Despite 147, the baritone voice, and the Modest Mouse singing moments, this album is pretty air tight when it comes to letting in that adolescent cringe. I tip my hat to the band. This is a legit solid send off.

Maybe I'm just visiting the wrong threads then because I hardly ever see you geek out with the rest of us. That's really all I was saying. 

I try to stay out of threads I have no interest in, barring the notable reissues like Avril Lavigne.  I am but a mere man, after all.  To be fair, my very first post in this thread was semi-jokingly, semi-seriously asking what would happen if this album ended up sucking.  I've also got some digs in on white vinyl, and people silly enough to spend $400 on a CD.  But outside of that I think this has been one of the more active and engaging threads on VC in some time.  It wouldn't be a Brand New thread without some obscurity and theories, and it's been entertaining (if not frustrating) to make sense of the CD lottery and possible packaging / variants with a few others who are keeping tabs on everything.

I've easily spent more time lurking this thread then I have spent listening to the album. This is hands down the least ridiculous BN thread I've seen (so far).

I don't even know why I try anymore with the mouthbreathers over at r/brandnew. I just find it funny at this point, here I am getting downvvoted for pointing out that CD audio is the most accurate representation when it comes to physical media:

Not sure if it was mentioned on previous pages cuz I don't care to look, but Amazon US finally put up copies. ~$27

If you don't care about variant and have prime, that's solid. Because if it goes down, you get the low price.

I can understand why  collectors would want to keep the limited CD sealed though.
