  1. so, you need to put it in a safe IMMEDIATELY. Minimum of 6 inch thick stainless steel 316L gauge, submarine steel if you can find one made in that material. Inside the safe itself, place the signed record inside an airtight, vacuum sealed container. MAKE SURE no physical part of the album is touching ANYTHING else. Construct a room in your house which will be the main holding area - you'll need to construct some ramparts in case anyone comes by sea, and some trenches or a moat in case they come for it by land. The room should be at least 25x25 in dimensions - and be sure to spring for the most expensive HVAC system you possibly can - you have NO IDEA how much value your record will lose if even a DROP of humidity touches it. Once you've got the room built and kitted out with the latest and greatest in humidity and temperature control - dig a shaft a MINIMUM of 50 feet deep. You'll need to hire a contractor who can install steel reinforced sides on this shaft so you are not at an increased risk from someone trying to tunnel in and steal the record. Lower the safe, with the record inside, down the shaft slowly - resting on the bottom where it has been stabilized against tectonic movement, earthquakes, etc. Once the safe is safely (haha) at the bottom, you're going to want to fill in the shaft with concrete. Don't worry, the record is perfectly safe if you've followed the rest of this guide -- but this is THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP in making sure this record never sees the devilishly destructive UV rays of the sun or the horrific harm of humidity damage. If you want to display it, make sure you take a picture (flash OFF!!!!!!!!!) before completing the above steps - then frame the picture.

  3. Tbh, your entitlement is kinda bogus. These things take time and effort, and you’re just assuming that they can handle requests of that magnitude even during a pandemic when most businesses are functioning at lower capacity. If this company were to take specific requests from every individual that orders from them, the amount of problems that could arise are astronomical. Try to consider things like this when kicking and screaming certain services be rendered in order to prevent something that MIGHT happen.

  11. To anyone concerned about the quantity changes - It is a simple doubling of each variant, and they are still pretty limited at 500pcs each, as these are quickly selling out.

  12. This is not a reimagined album. This is a repress of Ocean Avenue in all its glory. The records are finished and on a boat to the states. Once they arrive we’ll get our promo photos up and announce the album properly and go on sale shortly thereafter (probably a week from the official announcement).

  13. I had this happen a few months ago. Buyer paid for a record and before I shipped it said they found it cheaper and wanted to cancel. I said sure - I'll refund you minus the fees that I don't get back. They threw a fit and filed an item not received paypal claim so I just shipped the record, won the claim. They messaged me after they got it asking why I shipped it after they asked me to cancel the order. I told them because they filed a claim that they never received the item.

  17. Thanks for the love everyone! Rico and I (Field Day) are super excited about this one. I will say that my anxiety is at an all-time high given this is one of my favorite records and I just want to do right by it but luckily Ryan has been super cool, hands-on, and supportive of the release and we can’t wait to share it! ❤️

  24. Just came here to say that I am one of the poor souls who actually purchased this, after missing out many of the ridiculous GJ items in the past. Ok, $200 - probably shouldn’t have done it and just gone to the fucking show. To add insult to injury, after checking my account this morning - there is an additional $5.98 international transaction fee for purchasing on my debit card from MusicGlue. I deserve every rude, asshole comment from the community after this fucking madness. If you are also going to the Chicago show, you can slap me in the face in person - might not feel as defeating.

  34. Was bummed about this too. Especially considering we have 16 songs to play with here, the fact the decided to go this route was a bit odd. Though, I'll admit, I dont have any idea the cost implications of going the half-speed 45RPM master route vs. typical 33 1/3 RPM with a side D etching. But here's how they could've easily, again taking financials out of the picture, went with the 45RPM config (below). A couple pros I get from going this route: A Colossal Wreck & Desperate Pleasures get together, as they were meant to be 3 of 4 sides are almost right at that 12 minute side optimal length. Even SIDE C at 14 minutes is within the maximum SIDE A 1. Dark Distance 2:54 2. Sly 2:31 3. Planet Shit 3:57 4. Post-Boredom 3:16 SIDE A RUNTIME 12:38 SIDE B 5. A Colossal Wreck 2:28 6. Desperate Pleasures 3:12 7. All This And War 3:11 8. Thing With Feathers 3:38 SIDE B RUNTIME 12:29 SIDE C 9. Hostile Architecture 2:37 10. AWOL 2:11 11. The Whip 2:30 12. White Void 3:35 13. Distress Rehearsal 3:13 SIDE C RUNTIME 14:06 SIDE D 14. sexsexsex 3:28 15. People Verses 3:33 16. We Go Together 5:03 SIDE D RUNTIME 12:04 PS: this took like 30 minutes of my time. For absolutely no reason, dont hate.

  45. Not every town has a cool record store. Maybe this release is for the kid who picks it up in nowheresville USA and it changes his life. I also think its pointless to adhere DIY punk mentality to a band of Metallica’s level. You want to talk corporations, they ARE a corporation
