  1. Minor lip warps are as common as dish warps in my experience. I usually don't get worked up about a warp unless the rise of the tonearm is really noticeable.
  2. While the VF is pricey, I will say that mine has paid for itself many times over. I'm convinced that pressing plant quality assurance these days is absolute dog shit. It is rare that a new record I buy these days doesn't either have a dished shape or a noticeable lip warp. I end up using my vinyl flat for at least half of the new records I buy.
  3. Very bummed I missed this. Any chance someone ordered a backup they don't need?
  4. The Brooklyn Vegan variant looks beautiful. https://shop.brooklynvegan.com/products/rival-schools-united-by-fate-lp-limited-edition-only-500-made-teal-vinyl
  5. Red standard edition back in stock at RFC. Hurry https://www.runforcoverrecords.com/products/730208-rival-schools-united-by-fate-standard-edition
  6. I don't know if I'd trust Amazon with this limited of a run. I've made that mistake before.
  7. Damn, that Rough Trade went fast. Not into this enough to get the deluxe. Maybe RSD...
  8. this worked for me as well. I also used a coupon to save a few bucks. Total was $31. Code: RS4460734207
  9. If you're referring to the fact that inner grooves have lesser quality, I don't know if this is generally a pressing issue or a turntable issue. I can say that I used to notice this from time to time when I had a lower quality turntable, but since I've gotten a nice model, I never hear any sizzle or sibilance on the inside tracks.
  10. DAMN, I will be watching this thread closely for pre-order availability 🥲
  11. Instant order for me as well, even with that price tag. Wild Pink is consistently great.
  12. I streamed the album 3-4 times when it accidentally dropped on Apple Music and it's damn good. Still, this is a hard sell for me. I know they are self-releasing, but $30 + shipping and arriving Summer 2023 is just tough...
  13. I have an OG pressing of Remote Part that I got 2nd hand and it's not bad. Still, maybe I get a fresh copy. That record is so great.
  14. Spoke to someone very close to the band and this is pretty much what they hinted at. The good news is that Epitaph pumps out vinyl, so maybe it won't be a year wait...
  15. I did, and it's the same. It sounds like they transferred CD audio to the vinyl.
  16. I read somewhere that CD sales are way up since the vinyl shortage. Also, this band is pretty great and poised to pounce.
  17. Instant order of black vinyl. The new song slaps.
  18. Any recommendations for sites to visit for a virtual remote RSD? I've used Jackpot Records before but it looks like they are not selling online until Sunday.
  19. Agreed that Get Hurt is their worst album, but it's a damn fine discography if your worst album is still great.
  20. Holy shit, immediately ordered. People are charging $250+ for this on Discogs.
  21. Yeah, it looks way better than my warped clear copy. I might get this too, but am always concerned that these pinwheels/swirls will end up looking just brown.
