  1. well, considering they are owned by a company that handles half of the entire worlds vinyl distribution you dont really have a choice but to deal with them. i highly doubt any of this was done on purpose but that doesnt mean they dont need to step it up after the 4th of july sale problems especially. but I still think over dramatic karen is a spot on title for the previous complaints.
  2. yeah, looks like the 24x24 poster might be the only limited part of this release when you buy it from the official site and I can live without that so i'll wait it out too. Was just about to spin Larry Lovestein for the first time tonight too. Anyone else who bought this bootleg actually receive a copy that is anything other then clear? The description said "random color" and the picture had some random red added to the clear to make it look like a great match up to the cover but my copy is 100% clear. Not the biggest deal as long as it sounds good but curious if I was just unlucky.
  3. you got a real winner there champ, i'd say a solid $8.50 shipped give or take .50 cents. Either that or possibly anything else since there's no sales history.
  4. It's not as good as the last app I used but it works well enough. I think a lot of people stopped using price protection stuff when amazon made that move. I honestly didn't even know Slice did it until they sent the email as I just used it for delivery organization. I guess Rakuten bought and took over Slice so technically it's called Rakuten Slice now. I've been using it for awhile and this was the first time I got a price drop alert but it ended up being a nice little surprise. https://www.slice.com/price_drops
  5. And a heads up to anyone interested, I started using this app called Slice since the other app I used to keep track of my deliveries stopped working. It has a price checker in it as well and one of my items dropped just a bit in price from Target and they asked if I wanted to try to get a refund for the difference so I did it and they completely composed the email with all the information automatically so I basically just had to click send and within 24 hours I got a gift card for the amount from Target. I normally never take the time to check this manually so it was nice having the lazy option.
  6. Yeah, im 2 for 2 so far with most of the others still in the wild. I had some mofi sleeves which got mangled asf but it happened during shipping at some point so I provided a picture and they just fully refunded both packs (only 1 was damaged) and told me to keep them. They will be getting more of my business if it is always this easy, reminds me of how great Amazon used to be with customer service. The 2 records I got so far were also in nice sturdy mailers. I got one of the Dylan bootleg sets coming which is a little bigger so that will be a test to see how they handle larger items. Anyone have experience lately with full on boxsets from them? I was completely against that gamble during the sale but seeing how they looked to have improved I might change that during the next one.
  7. Yeah, they recently started doing a good amount of exclusives. Mostly older classics from what i've seen but I remember some of the color ways looking pretty solid. I haven't ordered any but if they run a good sale I might find 1-2 I like. Surprisingly, i've had MUCH better luck with the albums I bought from Walmart then Target in the past as far as packing goes. They are always in a good mailer so hopefully the exclusives are packed the same way and you'll be fine.
  8. To be honest, a lot of my orders have been great with them I just think bad packaging happens a bit more often. They have easy returns like amazon as well so you'll be good. The last b2g1 sale I bought 6 things and 2 of them were vinyl records and 1 came packaged great in a mailer while the other was completely wrecked in a big box but the replacement came in a mailer so all was good.
  9. Yeah, the one thing I was worried about with this sale. People complain about Amazon's packing but Target seems to be significantly worse from my own experiences and what i've read/seen on the internet over the years and especially lately. I ordered the first day of the sale and several orders all say I wont be getting it until the 25th-July 1st so hopefully I have some good luck this time 🤷‍♂️ Got some great deals so it was worth the gamble.......... I hope.
  10. ahh damn, well at least it should be an easy exchange but I feel you on the Warehouse buys it's 100% a complete gamble no matter what the condition says. I've gotten a few crazy deals out of it but it's def. not worth trying to save a dollar or two at all. I actually got my first ever "porcupine record" last year where they threw a record in a 2 foot box with no protection and by the time I opened it the actual vinyl was not only broke into 3 pieces but one of the pieces actually was poking out of the cover 😱
  11. jw was it a new record or a Warehouse buy? I haven't got one like that new but i've gotten a few used, it's like they just dgaf about anything from the Warehouse most of the time and especially lately.
  12. Yeah, I was surprised. It's pretty rare I see them involved in any big sales like this.
  13. It also includes movies and books as well but if there's only one item you really want at a hard price point to find others in you can order 3 items and immediately cancel 2 of them and it will still give you 1/3 of the discount and keep free shipping. Another thing they have is MoFi sleeves for 20 so I got 2 packs of those and then got the Target exclusive of Stax Number Ones for free. Watch out for the "$1 consolidation discount" too. First time I ever seen that offered but I happily took it.
  14. It'll probably be at least solid which is all you need for that track list really or maybe even "great" since I passed on it haha Dope release regardless! I dont blame anyone for grabbing it.. First bootleg in awhile I was close to pulling the trigger on. It sold out quick af too
  15. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tony-Hawks-Pro-Skater-soundtrack-LP-limited-color-vinyl-PlayStation/392830559773?hash=item5b7686a61d:g:-CEAAOSwE25e3pUM def. a boot.. it's an exact copy of the cd version, even the numbers are all the same. If I knew this sounded good, i'd grab it off nostalgia alone but i've got burnt too many times on $40 bootlegs to have that kind of optimism.
  16. you could have some arts and crafts time to create a jazzy pair of slacks/hot shorts to tape to the cover. but imo...... We should just apply the classic Tobias Funke's never nude policy to all animals/humans/aliens/monsters etc. on any album covers. NO MORE filth on album covers!
  17. I've gotten at least 6 or so records since then from amazon and all have come in a proper mailer like usual with most inside a bigger box as well. But Warehouse buys are nearly the exact opposite and a complete tossup no matter the listed condition. Most of these get returned so I stopped buying for the most part used as it's not worth the hassle right now.
  18. It was about this price in April as well. I also believe it was dirt cheap on deepdiscount for quite awhile. I just don't think it sold very well, I couldnt personally get into it as i've read many other people feeling the same way.. It's extremely talk heavy even for Springsteen and most of it wasn't very interesting at all to me at least. I recommend giving it a bit of a sample listen first even at that price. Great deal though if you like it.
  19. I love the art for the simple fact it pisses << (that line is supposed to be piss as well just a fyi) some people off like we see in this thread. It also actually blends well with the music of the album. I wouldn't buy a shirt but i'd spin tf out of the record if it grows on me like much of Chelsea Wolfe's work normally does and after 1 listen I can see it happening here as well. I also like the art style, if they made it photo realistic or an actual real girl pissing it would probably be a bit much. Not sure why some good church folk like Derek and his buddy are in here if they find it to be so vile? Plenty of other music and albums with pure, clean art instead of this filth. At the end of the day this was the artists chosen expression of art. Chelsea Wolfe especially has never shy'd away from making artistic decisions that is far from mainstream acceptable.
  20. If you use Chrome web browser grab the extension called "Distill web monitor" and it allows you to monitor an entire page or just a specific spot on a page and when there's a change you can have it notify you in the browser or through an email. I use it for these exact kind of situations and it works extremely well. All these "free" albums keep coming back so I wouldn't be surprised if they have another round or two of this one.
  21. Thanks for the heads up on that Nick Drake! I was hoping for a reup. It's without question a no brainer at $10 if you even think you might be a fan of the album. I've heard nothing but great things about the sound of it as well. Here's a video showing the box and its contents, it's a little bigger then necessary I guess but for the price don't second guess it....
  22. Went with the German import as well, appreciate that link! Has many people ordered from jpc before? I've seen it a few times mentioned but never ordered until now. It seems like people all over several forums and reddit are ordering but it's still in stock so hopefully there inventory is up to date.
  23. Hadn't been to an UO in awhile but I checked one out yesterday I have been going to for quite a few years and noticed they changed things up and now the vinyl section is less then half of what it used to be and they took out the entire sale section of the store. So now they only carry full priced items? Is this happening anywhere else? First time I ever seen an UO without a sale section anywhere in the country haha.
  24. As long as you aren't worried about having the rarest versions i'd say there's a very high chance you'll be able to score one eventually in the $20 range at some point which is what i'm going to wait for. There will be over 12k available haha They're working tf out of the Halloween franchise merchandise in the last couple of years in all aspects, doesn't matter what you're looking for there's probably a Halloween version of it out or coming soon. Even Gene Simmons would be impressed.
