  1. I snagged a gold because I really wanted this. It’s a great set, but at $90 I’m definitely a sucker. Ridiculous price. I couldn’t pay that much for a 2xLP from any other band. I could barely bring myself to do it here.
  2. Gave this a full listen this morning. It’s incredible. I don’t think it really sunk in for me how special this release was until I listened to it front to back. Frank and Tony playing on this is very noticeable. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a band release a “new” record that sounded so close to their roots. It’s really cool that they aren’t trying to mimic a past sound or feel, but that it is a past sound and feel. It’s a perfect pre-cursor to ..College. During the first listen Grudge and Lullaby really stuck out to me. This will be in heavy rotation for me for a long time.
  3. I assume you sold that OG Siamese Dream right?

  4. I definitely think it’s the best song on the record.
  5. Yeah, you may be right. Ive been skimming it today and there are some (very few) silver linings. Theres something there with the chorus in Wrath. Parts of Dulcet in E. Starrcraft is decent by this records standards. Here and there I hear something that moves me slightly, but I really have to dig. I think it’s just a very flat, mono-toned record that lacks dynamics and guts. Its full of cheese and is completely saturated with synth. There’s nothing tasteful about it. It’s frustrating that this band has 3 incredibly bad ass guitar players and one of the best rock drummers that has ever lived and they have a record that sounds like Cyr. I guess I’m being selfish, but I just want them to kick out the jams. They try on Wyttch, but I think it’s pretty lack luster, but at least it kicks it up a notch for a minute. I’m not asking for another Siamese dream or Mellon collie, or anything, but it would be nice to hear what I love about this band on a record again, which is the ability to pick you up and beat the shit out of your ears for a while, then lay you down, patch you up, and sing you to sleep (without the overuse of synths and emphasizing the incredible talent of everyone in the band). I’m done. I’ll probably love the record 5 years from now.
  6. No I saw it, but could not justify pulling the trigger on it. I don’t even know if it’s gatefold. If it had a book-like spine jacket with a lot of pictures and extensive liner notes or something then maybe. I’m ust being optimistic, but hopefully they’ll lower the price on a standard release on black vinyl for the archival stuff. Not too worried about it. I just really want Machina. I’ll pay whatever. I hope the artwork is sweet. I really really like the artwork for Machina l and ll.
  7. I’m still surprised at how bad the entirety of Cyr is. The pumpkins have been my favorite band since I was a kid and I’ve always found something on all of their releases to enjoy up until now. To each their own. I’m glad some people are digging it and I’m glad they’re still making music, but I just can’t bring myself to listen to it. That said, I’m super pumped for the Machina release and the live stuff as well. Hopefully the archival stuff isn’t astronomically expensive.
  8. For sale! Played 3-4 times. Bought directly from the band. Was cleaned with a record doctor and put into a rice paper sleeve upon purchase. SOLD
  9. Picked this up and have been jamming it a lot. It’s really good. I’m surprised I hadn’t heard of these guys before.
  10. It’s showing the /200 fine, but then other two variants aren’t grayed out and seem available until I try to check out and then it says out of stock.
  11. Are these all gone? What the shit...I was on top of it. Or so I thought
  12. https://youtu.be/1OOhZFpIXOg ^ Thats the only unreleased song I know of. I don’t know for sure, but I believe it was a demo for the IWK follow up that was supposedly going to be titled “Thriller”. It’s a doozie. I’ll always wonder what that record would have been like. Insanely good I’m sure.
  13. Anywhere else in the US selling this? Checked TTL and it looks sold out.
  14. I also gave both records a wet clean before listening. Feels like you is visibly warped, but sounds fine. Pops and cracks on the piano opener, but not as bad throughout. Still doesn’t sound quite as good as the original pressing, but it’s no doozie either. Distressor looks and sounds fine. Jackets on both were in great shape.
  15. Well shit. Saw this and checked it out and now I’m all over it. I’ve only listened to Speeding Away to Someday, but holy shit it’s great. I’ve heard them mentioned and thought I had checked them out before, but was mistaken. Anyone heard about a repress for any of their records? Really want Speeding Away..
