  1. Woo hoo! I have been waiting for this. I was actually in Target recently and thought about buying a few things, but forced myself to wait for the sale.
  2. I’m totally digging this album. Hit me at the right place at the right time. I just got a new job, it’s Spring and the sun is shining, and this album is a celebration. Also pumped that I got the record on release day and my first full listen was n my turntable.
  3. 😫 I would love to have both of these, but just can't pay that for EPs.
  4. Anyone have any idea if there are any US stores that have the Frightened Rabbit EP's? Lots for sale on Discogs, but all from EU sellers. The only RSD release I have picked up so far is the Camera Obscura.
  5. The midnight opening I remember the most was February 28/29, 2000 for Smashing Pumpkins Machina. It was at Magic Platter in Birmingham, AL. The other one I remember attending was when R.E.M.- Reveal, Weezer's Green, and Tool- Lateralus all released on the same day in May of 2001.
  6. I'd be curious to know how including a book, or any extras, impacts profit margin. Getting books made is expensive. However, one of my favorite books from the last few years is the "One Day When We Are Young: Mineral at 25" release, which was/is only $30 (but no licensing costs as the songs were new). It seems like the best way for a label or band to make money off a reissue would be to keep it as simple as possible? I have read on another discussion board about people only wanting the book. So maybe if you buy this package you could sell the book and keep the record? However, based on the images of the design, it seems like it's all one complete package and the book and LP slide into the same sleeve. Anyway, it does seem like they should have come up with a basic LP option with no book and no extras.
  7. Really love this "surprise release." No singles or anything like that, just a few hour heads up that it was dropping at midnight. And in this age where vinyl production takes forever, I greatly prefer artists and labels waiting until they have the physical product in hand to begin sales, rather than having a pre-order like "vinyl ships in 2023." I ordered the navy and white vinyl from Bandcamp, and have listened to the album through twice--enjoying it, but I need to dig into the lyrics.
  8. SO MUCH. I can't begin to summarize. But I would say the last decade of Project 86 is illegitimate. Or at least it's not the same band. Project 86 would have made more sense with Randy, Steven, and Alex and another vocalist than it has been with Schwab continuing with other musicians.
  9. AMAZING! YES! OK, I am totally buying it now to support Randy, Alex, and Steven.
  10. Was a huge fan of this band and album at the time, and the album holds up, but honestly no chance I am buying this considering Andrew Schwab and all his crap in the last decade.
  11. I did the exact same thing and also wondering what color--that price was too good to pass up!
  12. Haha! Seems like the most common Graveface test pressing. I have never been a Xiu Xiu fan, but I'll have to spin this and see what I think since it looks like I'm keeping it.
  13. I have 128: Xiu Xiu- Knife Play that I’d be willing to pass on.
  14. Thanks so much! I picked up the Sufjan Christmas boxset, which I have wanted for years, and I am glad I waited--I got it for $48 shipped! Then I placed a second order for two additional LPs for $34 shipped. And I have already gotten shipping notification for part of my orders.
  15. I got Xiu Xiu ‎– Knife Play. Not really that interested in it, so if anyone wants to trade or buy, let me know. The screened outer sleeve is awesome though.
