    System of a Down Re/Pressings

    It should have been and probably was. However, whether those files were retained after all these years is clearly another question. Other people are seriously that stupid though. I see stuff all the time that looks like complete shit. To cite an example with a record:a few years ago, hot topic had a pressing of thrice - the artist in the ambulance that looked absolutely horrible. I mean, a million times worse than these do. You would think they wouldn't pass a project off to somebody who doesn't know what they're doing but it legitimately looks like they give these layout projects to interns who have little to no design experience. And even then, you would think they would proof the jackets before they start on the whole production run but they clearly don't. So, probably a pretty good sign that the files were lost or they pulled the wrong ones because they don't know any different. Just flat out sloppy work done by someone who is probably not a graphic designer (I'd hope not, anyway). It's cool that these records were done but yeah, the artwork is a letdown and probably a combination of inexperience and lack of original files on hand.

    System of a Down Re/Pressings

    as someone that does a lot of design work as part of his job, id like to believe that nobody could fuck these kind of things up but it happens. the artwork for the original pressing of toxicity looked fine if i recall correctly (dont own it anymore) so proper art files had to exist at some point. as for the rest of these pressings - all the other cover art is pixelated as well. that said, these records pretty much all came out in an era though when vinyl wasnt a thing most people cared about so the art may have also never been properly designed for an lp cover. hard to say what the standard was back then.

    [PO] Thrice - Palms (9/14/2018)

    I would have loved it if thrice would have headed in the direction of the earth will shake / hold fast hope / the messenger / etc. Rather than what they've done with the last few records but I dont hate any of their later albums either including this one.
  6. clear w/ shard copies of axe to fall don't even sell for anywhere near that price (and thats a better album + cooler looking record). that record will sit on discogs forever.

    i actually think that track is way better than the grey.

    PO Now: GHOST - Prequelle

    i like the album quite a bit but the latter half of the record is definitely more on the mellow side. to me, the first two songs that were released and all the music used in the promo videos were a pretty good indicator of the direction this record was headed.
