    dreamover got a reaction from SeanPuffy in PO: My Bloody Valentine - Loveless and Isn't Anything   
    Here's what I'm gathering: 
    Isn't Anything and Loveless are only available to EU distribution. The official store had copies of standard Isn't Anything and Loveless that will ship from the US but the Loveless allotment  has sold out, so new orders will ship from UK.  Unclear if they'll restock in the US store. Though, I would assume if they planned to these would say 'sold out' to US instead of splitting shipments. 
     
    The Domino announcement implies that all the standard LPs will stay in print for at least a while, unlike the 2018 reissues but it's not 100% clear.
     
    The mbv LP has less restrictions because sony doesn't hold US distribution rights, so that one will be available from US distros.

    I'm curious whether they'll actually sell the 8 song LP separately. It kinda...doesn't make sense as a release separate from the book? There's no longer a dearth of high quality National live releases on vinyl and this seems clearly like it's a low-energy, bonus add-on to make the book more appealing for their vinyl collecting fans. The National seem like they want everything they release to fit a certain level of thoughtfulness, so I would echo the above posts that any future pressing will come with some kind of slimmed down 'tether' item to the book, whether it's a paper back or an expanded jacket with a 35 page excerpt booklet or something. We'll see.

    i don't know. it's not like it's a full length LP. It's only 7 songs. I think they would have a hard time selling these books without the record. And they know if they just sell the record, a bunch of fans are going to be pissed off. The Boxer Live LP never got a second press aside from the RSD press. There's really not precedent for this exact situation. 
     
    It's really a gamble though, because if you really want the record enough to buy the book and then there's a vinyl-only option, I don't see the book holding its value. But if you don't buy the set waiting for a separate LP and it never comes, the prices will only go up. 
     
    I think they may put the songs up on a streaming platform like they did with the Boxer Live LP and the Live Cassette sets, but releasing the record on its own would be kinda shitty after a bunch of people paid a premium for it initially.

    I have a special filing cabinet in the kitchen for flexis. Mine is plastic and has a replaceable liner, but I've also seen some metal ones. Once the cabinet is full, I move them to a bigger cabinet on the side of the house. These nice gentlemen come pick up the cabinet contents once a week. I can only assume they are achieving them for me somewhere, hopefully in alphabetical order. 
     
    But for real, I just keep them with my 7"s.

    Listened to the set a bit more over the weekend. 
    There are some millisecond gaps between tracks on DTGL that seem to be the biggest complaint. It honestly didn't bother me that much but I understand the gripe.
     
    A couple of the records are slightly "bowled" but using a record weight solved that.
     
    The second side of LITSOS gets a little hairy on the last track. The grooves are super tight and there's some inner groove distortion. I would expect a crosley would have a hard time on the last track. LITSOS is definitely pushing it for a single LP.

    I haven't had a lot of time to do any super-critical listening, but i spun TOCS and LITSOS yesterday afternoon while I was finishing up work. Definitely the best pressing of LITSOS yet.
     
    TOCS sounds much better than the awful DMM TOCS/DTGL that came out years ago. 
     
    No complaints on the pressing quality. My biggest gripe is printed inner sleeves. I don't understand why labels still do them.

    Man, I kinda envy those of you that are enjoying it. I honestly have no problem with the folks that want to listen to him. I guarantee you we all support much more evil and horrible people than Ryan. But I've just lost so much respect for him because he had a chance to show he was a mature adult and show some sort of empathy or (at least) understanding. 
     
    I just see him as the immature narcissist that he has always been, now. 
     
    His music strikes more like sad, destructive loser than hopeless romantic now.
     
    Toxic defensive personalities really just turn me off, and unfortunately, it overshadows his music for me.
     
    EDIT: Whoa, Just looked back at the last few pages of this thread. 
     
    Loving specific art doesn't mean you have to love the artist. It's okay to feel complicated thoughts about situations like this. Ryan has his own label. I believe he lost the deal he had with Capitol or whatever. He should be allowed to release music, it's up to record stores if they want to carry it. 
     
    Like I said, for me, I'm just not enjoying his music like I used to. It's okay for those who do. But defending his actions or blaming the victims is bullshit. Ryan is a textbook narcissist. (A lot of prolific artists are). I've seen him play a show where he was a total dick. I've also (in the last few album cycles) seen him be really gracious and friendly and put on an awesome show. 
     
    Narcissism and bipolar disorder often overlap. The highs are high and the lows are low. He clearly has some mental health issues that are difficult to treat. While there's no excuse for his behavior, citing the 'highs' doesn't defend the 'lows'. I always loved to see Ryan when he was doing well. Unfortunately, like most narcissists, he doubles down when things get shitty. 
     
    I'll keep hoping he gets better and owns up to his bullshit. But having been burned by people like him in my own life, I have very little confidence he'll ever get better. And I honestly feel horrible for him for it.
