    'Say Nothing' is the best thing they've done yet. It also describes the album perfectly: 'A lack of noise isn't a lack of life'

    I wouldn't say he handled it wrong. My guess is that he's not that much of an attention whore as Mark Kozelek is. He's always been trying to gain success by igniting publicity in the most stupidest of ways to make his inherently boring music count. At least he got this years most awaited nomination for the Biggest Douche In The Universe-Award. Congrats Mark!!!

    In fact I do have it in my store for 17€. So yeah, I assume there should be multiple places or web stores where you can get it for that price.

    Got it in store. Official release is not until this friday, but working there does have its benefits. 
    Having one of those colour variants would have been pretty cool though. They go nicely with the art.

    Got the black retail today, can't wait to listen tonight. Been holding off other than the two gorgeous songs released earlier. Really nice heavy gatefold packaging with the cd included. Also loving the cover artwork.

    Sorry, no link, this is, like, highly confidential news I got from a sales representative from the german distributor releasing the box set over here who stepped by at the record store I'm working at,. He already had the opportunity to take a look at the set and brought us the news about the 7" and the recording sessions going on. I know this is a vague source to you and I can't guarantee for anything, but the guy is in this business for 20+ years and never brought any news that turned out to be bullshit.

    Enjoyed this quite a lot, thanks for posting! There's a lot of Wild Nothing going on in these tracks and I certainly dig that.

    Adore is the next reissue of the series that turns out pretty awesome. It's a REALLY thick, glossy gatefold, the new artwork is outstanding and the records sound so so good. Unfortunately I can't compare to the OP, but I immediately found the LP to be warmer and much smoother than the CD. I learned to love this album a few months ago, instead of thinking it's really good for a couple years, and this reissue could not make me happier.
    Yet I cannot seem to understand how sticking a piece of paper on the back of every reissue that says goodbye as soon as you unwrap it can by anyone be considered as a good idea.

    While still enjoying their debut full length, I've kinda grown to dislike the band and their release/money-making policies. This whole "let's put out thirty+ variants of every note we record"-strategy is an unsympathetic way to go imo. I'm not remotely into variant collecting, so my dismay doesn't have anything to do with being frustrated by having an incomplete collection, I just seem to grow tired of the hype. Also not interested in this new album/ep/split/whatever.

    I cannot seem to understand how or why this record is any improvement on the last few albums. This is like Hurley all over again. Not worse, but also not the least bit better.

    Mine is Weakling's 'Dead As Dreams', just one pressing of 500 copies on maroon vinyl. It's up on discogs for insane prices and I've yet to see it up on auction. Still there is a chance on getting my hands on one of those someday.
    The other one would be Bohren & der Club of Gore's 'Sunset Mission'. The only pressing on vinyl of this record had been canceled, so there a like 20 test presses floating around somewhere, if at all. Most likely never gonna even see a pic of one of 'em.

    Nope, didn't like it all that much. I always considered the tortured and unstable vocal performance to be the essential part of their songs and this one doesn't deliver. 
    Do not agree on the Will Yip discussion though. To me he is the person who made La Dispute finally record a great album. Unpopular opinion, I know, but it's the first album of theirs that I can listen through without being bored and/or cringing at the lyrics every five minutes.
