    derek123 got a reaction from highfives in The Smashing Pumpkins - Archival Releases   
    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.

    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.

    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.

    I still cry that this was pressed. I thought there was zero chance I'd ever own a copy on vinyl. This album turns 20 this year. 20(!!)

    Still pricey, but for U.S., some copies available through Bandcamp

    I got this record in much sooner than I expected. Got it last Friday and have had a chance to listen to it multiple times. I’ve been streaming it since it came out, but putting it on the table, cranking it up, and just taking it in has been a completely different experience. The record is so warm and thick and generally just sounds insanely great. Heavier than any other HUM record. I love this album and can really find no wrong in it. It’s a great record to put on for an escape. I especially love how it sounds like they picked up right where they left off with Downward is Heavenward.

    I feel similar, but I also enjoyed among the ghosts. Some really great tunes on that record. I just didn’t dig the Memphis blues thing they had going for a while, but it was awesome they experimented with it.

    Completely agree. 3 LPs, great packaging, it sounds killer, and it’s Wildflowers. 180 gram or not, this is an awesome reissue and $40 is more than reasonable. I can’t believe anyone is complaining about this even a little bit.

    I'm not looking for a throwback record. I just want good songs. I loved the evolution to Adore and Machina. Songs like Eye are great too. These songs don't hold up as songs. Not even thinking in terms of synth or throwback.

    Ah ok, that makes sense. I definitely want to check out Everything Else Matters then. I just picked up Blankenberge-More and have jammed it quite a bit. Killer record. Surprised I’ve just now come across them. 
     
    And holy shit I’m glad I snagged that Kestrels record. That thing is wild. New jam with Mascis is awesome too. 
     
    Edit: Just checking my order confirmation for the new Kestrels and it says Transparent blue w/ rainbow splatter. Going back to the Darla store, the option now says clear w/rainbow splatter. I don’t really care it looks great, just wondering if there was a mix up.

    Not liking some of the songs is one thing. Totally fine. Comparing it or any song on it to those bands is just not correct. Not even close.

    I’ve never hesitated less on blindly buying a record in my life. Would have paid double.

    WOW, the newest song is amazing. Love the sound on this one. Chlorine is growing on me too. I think this album will be better than Floral Green (to me, it's their worst release).

    You think paypal would have let me go this long without paying you? You were not the only one who I slacked on sending records to, my feedback shows it.  Every one of you got your money back and I'm not posting "proof" all over the boards. I'm done with this squabble now. Record is sold anyway.
