    This band is fucking brilliant.   Yet another amazing release to add to the Owel catalog.

    That’s a fair deal.  In all seriousness I do not listen to a lot of Deja these days, but Sci-Fi is still killer in my books and has held up pretty well since release.  Not sure (and can’t be bothered to care) if that makes me a bad person to admit, but I quite like that record and wish I could’ve caught them touring it before they went off the grid for good.

    Haven’t done one of those in over a year or so. And that was always just for fun unlike other people who take YouTube super seriously on here ... lol

    A $35 record from Urban is not worth the 100 or so instagram likes you’re hoping on getting with it.

    It sounds to me (and this is probably why people are reacting so strongly) like you're looking to get into the speculative vinyl market, and I've gotta say beyond the ick factor of straight-up asking which records will be out of print soonest, it's just not a great idea in general. Collecting "limited" records for their "value" is a big gamble, and unless you're already knowledgeable and immersed in the hobby, the odds are good that you'll end up stuck with a bunch of records you don't want that you'll eventually dump for a loss. If you want to make easy money flipping stuff, there are probably safer bets out there.
     
    Now, if you're asking because you just want to own something, anything, as long as it's limited: I would honestly just take a step back and ask whether possessing rare items will actually make you happy, or if you're just passively following messages you (and all of us! since birth!) are receiving from our western capitalist society that are telling you that consumption is the highest form of cultural participation. Maybe just think about what music connects with you, and seek out a copy of that music on a format that you think is cool. Some of my favorite and most treasured records are monetarily worthless, yet they bring me more joy than records worth $100+ that I bought to fill out a collection.

    I'm on board. To be fair, I think mods would have had to approve this thread. Juan has said he takes great joy in occasionally approving potential tire fires like this one.

    Yeah this sounds really great. Love the guitars.
    Still waiting on a new release from them. Bloom & Breathe is one of my favorite releases and been waiting for them to follow up. They've been pretty quiet the past year.

    I remove from my collection as soon as I sell and add as soon as purchases are in my hand. 
     
    The pricing model is based off the last 10 items sold of that exact entry so it does change the low/median/high
