  1. the original pressing is still the best sounding. the 2012 2LP from hot topic sounds horrible. I think the new pressing is an improvement from the 2LP but this one just sounds flat and dull.
  2. well, this pressing sounds pretty bad. pressing quality is fine, but sounds like it's just the cd/mp3 masters. not surprising.
  3. How is media mail 10.17 and priority mail is 10.62?
  4. Love that the brooklyn vegan one is less limited, less interesting variant, and $8 more before shipping.
  5. $115 is totally reasonable for a 5LP boxset in 2023.
  6. If you don't care about the remaster, Polyvinyl still has a cool blue/silver variant of frame & canvas for $21. https://polyvinylrecords.com/product/frame_and_canvas It's not like the record was/is hard to find.
  7. tidbit from Aaron's instagram: And for those of you asking, Weird Goodbyes is also part of something very special, we made a mountain of music we love 😉
  8. Interesting to note that 'Weird Goodbyes', which was released as a single in September, isn't included on the album. When they released it they said: "We are so happy to finally share a new song with you. “Weird Goodbyes,” featuring our friend Bon Iver, is the first song we are releasing from a new record we’ve been working on the last few years. We hope you love it as much as we do." The announcement goes on to say: “Weird Goodbyes” also features the London Contemporary Orchestra and is one of several new songs we’ve been playing this summer that may be part of our new album we are close to finishing — more about that soon! Today, the description of the Cherry Tree preorder that includes "Weird Goodbyes" as a flexi says: Cherry Tree members who pre-order First Two Pages of Frankenstein via the member store will also receive a Flexidisc single of “Weird Goodbyes (feat. Bon Iver).” Previously released digitally, this will be an initial physical release of the song ahead of its future home. Perhaps there'll be a second part of the album? Or a b-sides collection/EP to follow?

  11. Just got mine too. Dig the design. My only complaint is that the jacket isn't an actual jacket and the outer slip-cover is so thin that the spine bent down the center. The book looks awesome, but I still think this set would've been an awesome opportunity to include a 7" or 10" with some of the other Chris songs from the era. And/or a dvd/bluray of one of the reunion shows.
  12. damn. i didn't even have the energy to post more than two clips on instagram, and you go and do this. well done.
  13. pretty sure blindside sold every copy they made and there won't be leftovers.
  14. just got my two copies in the mail. both yellow. i think the plant screwed up and more of the 600 are yellow than they said. it looks like they only meant to press 500 and they were supposed to be orange. but an initial batch of copies showed up and they were yellow. when unoriginal complained about the color the plant said they'd fix it but some of the yellows got mixed in the order but they underestimated how many were yellow. that's just my guess of how it went down. i could be way wrong.
  15. totally forgot about this yesterday and remembered around 10 pm. i panicked cause i couldn't find it in the BTV store so i bought it from T&N. Glad I was able to pick it up. This album is a classic.
