    for anyone wondering about the alkaline trio record, the same plates were used as the last pressing from 4 years ago. it still sadly sounds horrible.

    The Type O negative FB account posted yesterday about a "premature" listing. They said more info would come out in August and implied to wait as they will have several editions

    Anyone have a chance to check the matrix info? Curious to see if they re-used the plates from the previous reissues.

    Probably that the Cloud Hills store is the only place to pay these prices.  I hope.

    "Exclusive Clouds Hill edition"
    I wonder what this actually means? I don't see the exclusivity being black vinyl? Or just because these standalone releases will be not available in retail (which I do not believe actually)?

    The red thing is a "snow straw" and the "Bronx LA" thing is in fact a sticker

    Tests were normal, and all other presses I’m sure were as well.  Sounds like it just may have been a little larger than normal variance accentuated by lack of labels to tension it in.  Thanks for the responses, informative and pretty damn comical. I feel like my hole questions have been filled.

    What I have seen on some used records: you could make it playable by either putting adhesive tape over the spindle hole and pushing the spindle through. Or by filling up the inners of the hole with a couple of layers of tape.
    Might not be easy to find the exact spot so it will not be off-centered.

    I don't believe for a second that the pressing plant was unfamiliar with the mockups. I'm pretty sure the possible color combinations (and likely the photoshopped mockups themselves) usually come from the pressing plant. Plants use multi-colored vinyl "pucks" to achieve multicolored pressings. They know what it should look like. (You might notice that indie punk band 7"s from the same eras often have the same similar colors combos/marbles/splatters, from URP or the like. They choose from what's available)
    It is not an issue of the labels/artists dreaming up things that are impossible. Pressing plants would not accept orders for things that can't be done. This is a clear example of someone not caring about the final product. Maybe the blue should have been transparent, maybe the pucks were just badly mixed; who knows.
    Whether or not a true "test pressing" is made, low-numbered pressings are usually made one at a time; just 500 copies were almost definitely done by one single stamper. It would have been obvious if the first one came out wrong.
    Don't get me wrong, I love the album and will be keeping mine. But considering I paid like $10 extra and waited longer? Kinda lame. This could have been avoided. /end rant

    Jokes aside that is probably the worst “wait, that’s it?” variant mishap and shakeout that I’ve seen in 11 years of buying vinyl.  I’ve seen some barely-there swirls and some splatters that were truly more dribbles than anything else.  But this takes the cake.  It looks like the blue LP dipped its toe in black and said “wow, nope.  Fuck that.  I’m out.”

    Bit of both. Packaged Sounds has its own pressing plant in High Wycombe for specialst colour work, so all Store Editions and runs up to 500 records are usually pressed there but also owns machines at the Takt plant which do the larger volume and major label work. It started out as a broker but the plant in UK opened 18months ago.
