  1. I think I canceled on the 21st and I'm pretty sure they're all refunded. It wasn't instantaneous, but not crazy long. Ordered from Walmart. Now, when will the signed CDs go back up? The clock is still ticking down, so there is no way it will stay sold out. Hope it's not at midnight in whatever time zone.
  2. Hopefully this will be like her other supposed 48 hour sales.
  3. No idea. I'm not generally looking for pristine mastering when I'm listening to black metal.🤣I already have a copy, so not in a rush to buy another. TRYING to cut back on record buying and especially multiple variants. I will fail in the end, though.
  4. Also at 20Buck, newly remastered pressing for Godslathering... by Hulder. Frickin' hell that record is good.
  5. True. There's gotta be people who have boxes of that stuff. It is a nice touch, but I just canceled my moonstone and might cancel the rest. I can get moonstone from almost anywhere else for cheaper.
  6. Wow. Ain't that a kick in the crotch. Whoever planned this rollout did a piss poor job of it all. I should just cancel my orders with them.
  7. Nothing against the clock, but it ain't gonna work out well in the end. They should have included plexi to support the covers. They will probably puff out or warp from any humidity. I do like the mid century vibe to it, though.
  8. Just in time for the "limited vinyl only for sale for one week" to be back in the store. I simply can't believe that it's for sale again...
  9. It's crazy that their last album was As the Stars. Such a great band.
  10. Can't we all just have our own opinions without trying to be the most clever at shitting on another person? I'm not on anyone's side in this debate. There just seems to be a lot of wasted energy here. I guess it's just the internet... Be kinder, folks. I hope Topshelf can pull themselves outta this mess.
  11. Kinda trying to justify opening the wallet again, but I just can't at this time... Okay, I caved. I blame it on the cheaper shipping that Tape mentioned. All three records shipped for less than my one initial record.
  12. Official statement from the band. Good for them for speaking out. A STATEMENT FROM NEUROSIS We cannot overstate the level of disgust and disappointment we feel for a man who we once called Brother. As a band, we parted ways with Scott Kelly at the end of 2019 after learning about severe acts of abuse he committed towards his family over the previous years. In the past, Scott had disclosed his marital difficulties and acts of verbal abuse, as well as his intention to get help and change his behaviors. The information we learned in 2019 made it clear Scott had crossed a line and there was no way back. We did not share this information out of respect for his wife’s direct request for privacy, and to honor the family’s wish not to let their experience become gossip in a music magazine. With Scott’s Facebook post of August 27, 2022 disclosing much of this information publicly, we can finally say what we believe needs to be said. For the last twenty years we have lived far apart from one another and only saw Scott when meeting up to work on music or play shows. We had no idea what the reality was for his family when we were not around. By Scott's own admission, his abuse was intentional, targeted, and a closely guarded secret - even from those of us closest to him. Once we learned of his abuse it was difficult to reconcile the horrible information with the person we thought we knew. It’s not surprising he hid the abuse for so long because it is a betrayal of our ethics as bandmates, partners, parents, and human beings. Since 2019, we have made numerous attempts to contact Scott. We wanted to have an honest talk about the status of the band and find out how he and his family were doing, but he has refused to speak with us for three years. And, in what we now see clearly to be a pattern, Scott refused to take responsibility for his actions. Having been through so much with someone for more than 35 years, one would expect some amount of closure, or at the very least a response. Now, without returning any of the calls, texts, or e-mails of his bandmates and friends, Scott has made a public post about the situation. To us, this decision seems like another attempt at manipulation, another opportunity for his narcissism to control the narrative. Don't allow Scott to make this about himself, it's about the abuse his family has suffered. Usually, we would view public openness and honesty about mental illness as brave and even productive. We just don’t believe that is the case here. There is nothing brave about systematically abusing your wife and children. There is nothing brave about confessing wrongdoing when you have not done the work to change your behavior. There is nothing brave about refusing to speak honestly, or speak at all, with one’s closest friends and bandmates, people who have supported you and stuck by you for most of your life. Compared to the impact of Scott’s actions on his family, the impact on our band pales in significance. Nevertheless, with the heartbreak and horror we also grieve for the loss of our life’s work and a legacy that was sacred to us. Again, our primary concern is for the safety and well-being of Scott’s wife and children, as well as anyone else in a similar situation. If someone you know is experiencing domestic violence or abuse, please reach out to one of the many local or national resources available. One national resource is: National Domestic Violence Hotline 1-800-799-7233 www.thehotline.org If you or someone you know is suffering from mental health issues that could make you a danger to yourself or others, please get help before you hurt yourself or the people you love. One resource for that is: www.988lifeline.org This is the only statement we plan to make about this issue. In due course, when it's appropriate, we will provide more information about our future musical endeavors, but that time is not now.
  13. Absolutely, but collector dork. I've been holding out for the inevitable special repress.
  14. I will FINALLY have a vinyl copy of this. 10K seems to be a lot. Hopefully this will deter too many flippers and folks will be able to score one for actual listening pleasure.
  15. Wow. Very stoked. Anyone hear if she is still working with Aaron?
  16. This is fucking terrible. He seems to be on the path and I hope that him and his family find peace.
  17. Nice moody jam. I've been keeping my eye out for this one, since my buddy played it for me. Not really willing to pay the asking prices, since I don't really DJ much anymore. It's just a frickin' strange song.
  18. Wow. Big difference. Expecting exact these days in unreasonable, but what happened to the blue purple color? Oh well, life will go on.
  19. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-11075153/Taylor-Swift-making-new-album-songs-compared-musicians-like-Stevie-Nicks.html
  20. Even with the scarce variants of past releases, I wouldn't be surprised if we see at least a couple more for this one. Not seeing any pressing numbers, so not really feeling the need to jump in yet.
  21. Scroll past all of the indie stuff and you'll find a bunch of Black Jazz releases. Good prices and "EXTRA20" may work as an added discount. Sale
  22. Will most likely buy both versions someday, since I am obsessed with this record. I've already mentioned that I have an original mono pressing, and even in VG it still sounds better than any other copy I've listened to. Love the TP series and have never been disappointed by them.
