  1. Which is the exact scenario Ian Mackaye had in mind when he started Dischord Records forty years ago. Mine arrived unscathed across the world last weekend and I listened to the first three singles (or four minutes, approx.) of the set. Not a huge fan of the Teen Idles release, but god damn S.O.A. are so good and the first Minor Threat 7“ is just insane. Truly the greatest and defining moment in Punk Rock history for me.
  2. That write-up is born out of an emotional sensation opposite of FOMO, called FOGITTFTISMHEMOAPOBF* *fear of giving in to the fact that i spent my hard earned money on a pile of bullshitty fuckfarts
  3. There’s no shortage of better music with way more reasonable price tags out there. Just, you know, skip this record or fuck this band or whatever, really..
  4. Come on man. Just buy an extra turntable and set the speed to 45, DONE.
  5. What a narc. My collection is so mint, I rarely even pick my records up from the post office.
  6. Yet here you are, posting on a forum called Vinyl Collective. 👀
  7. I bought indie exclusives of OK and AMSP and while considering the box sets, I was glad I did both times after checking out the sets a friend had bought. They are certainly nice to look at, but I felt like I was done with the extras after briefly browsing through them once. So yeah, I preordered the red 3LP and bet it ends up real nice.
  8. Thank you both, but with nowadays insane overseas shipping prices VMP – or buying from the states in general – is just not an option for me.
  9. Yeah, changing the iconic cover art is a dealbreaker for me. With VMP not being a option, here’s hoping a solid repress is somewhere on the horizon.
  10. As long as I’m willing and able to spare the time and cash to explore new (to me) genres and artists, I’m game. With a toddler things might slow down for a while now, but there’s still no such thing as a finished collection for me.
  11. Got this today. The record has a nice milky see through thing going which is way cooler than an opaque silver. Hopefully I’ll find some time to listen later.
  12. Got back into it during home office and had the exact same issue today. I entered the same code about a dozen times to no avail and poof it worked. Hope it’s working out for you, there’s a new Zen-inspired event starting today.
  13. Solid first single, wish they would’ve kept it clean all the way. Getting serious Sagarmatha-era Appleseed Cast vibes during the quieter middle part. The intricate drums, playful bass line and shimmering guitar arpeggios hit all the right spots for me.
  14. Yeah OCHL was awesome. I wouldn’t be surprised (and also wouldn’t mind) if they strayed away from their BM leanings even further. The least impressive part of the last record were Clarke’s vocals and I can see them seriously holding back the band from exploring new territories. I’d love to be wrong though.
  15. Thanks! Do you think they’re all equally good? Or just okay? I bought the new deluxe and think it’s fantastic. Only have the 2007 Plain to compare though and the new master is an easy winner, of course.
  16. Sure, the prices are way out there. BUT: I have the MOV and the box and oh boy the remaster shits all over the oversized CD MOV put out.
  17. @Derek Should we go ahead an calm this place down once more?
  18. Yup. I vividly remember passing on it for 35€. I also no longer trust myself in any half-important issues since I passed on it when it was on clearance for 15€ two years later, though.
  19. If anyone with warped discs or other defects is considering reaching out to CH customer service, I highly recommend doing so. Just had a perfect correspondence asking for a replacement of Ampu LP1 and it’s all being taken care after one mail. They took my adress from my original order and ship it out on monday. Perfect.
  20. Wow, I thought the box set was pricey as hell, but with the individual releases stacking up to pretty much the same I’m almost willing to call it a cheapo haha.. Also laughing about the CEO of Clouds Hill stating that people won’t have to worry about scalpers on eBay anymore. Wouldn’t have thought he’ll be trying to preemptively outscalp them all.
  21. The new remastering really pops the whole thing open, for sure. I did a quick A-B with the digital version and it’s all just glued together without any cohesiveness. This heavily compressed mastering doesn’t do the record any favor, I think. Those sweet analogue synths with the overall calmer, but trippy atmosphere and the drums just relentlessly going insane.. without a broad soundstage and lots of space it just doesn’t add up, I think. And the remaster is spacey and dynamic all the way. If you should ever feel inclined to give that album another go, I’d give it a few weeks for high quality needle drops to pop up and try it out. It seems to be settled that the new remastering will stay vinyl only, unfortunately.
