  1. the one record store on maui didn't have the wonder years (that, or someone grabbed it before me). if anyone could help a brotha out (even though i'm sure tons of people want this), i would greatly appreciate it. thank you!!
  2. please. would prefer not to pay markup but i know how this dance goes. hit me up.
  3. should also say in my most recent binge i came up with the following color duplicates: #1 - purple #5 - dark grey #6 - coke bottle such gold (#9?) - green #12/50 (it might actually be #8, can't remember) again, i might have more color duplicates at my other place... so just let me know if you're interested in any of these at a nominal cost + shipping.
  4. i don't have any full sets on me right now (my wax packs collection is split up between two locations right now) but more than happy to send random (or even specific, if i have them with me now) black copies FREE OF CHARGE to anyone interested, whether it's long-time or first-time collectors. just pay shipping. hit me up!
  5. i have five sealed black copies for free (just pay shipping) if you're looking for the thrill of the pack rip. also pretty sure i have multiple black copies of all 10 if you're looking to fill out a collection as well as a couple of duplicate colors (including such gold green /50) if that's your thing
  6. first press had a printed inner sleeve, too. not that it justifies doing it again but i'm not surprised.
  7. i definitely recommend revisiting it. i did not like act V, like, at all when i first listened to it. i thought the entire endeavor had fallen flat with IV, and V did nothing to convince me anything had changed. but i listened to it more and, fuck, it is so, so good. there are a few songs that drag, and "a beginning" is kind of a dud to me, if it truly is the finale of the series. but otherwise some of the tracks -- mr usher (which i HATED but now LOOOOVE), the march, light, melpomene, the moon, the most cursed of hands -- would all rank pretty high on my all-time list of act-specific songs. so... as someone who feels like he went through what you went through, i say, give it another earnest chance you say "if you recall" as if i recall, which i do not! i had no idea about those demos. act III came out in, what, 2009? which was right about when i was too cool to buy CDs anymore but not cool enough yet to buy vinyl (i don't think it was pressed at this point anyway). i'm gonna have to hunt these demos down but, you're right, that does make a lot of sense
  8. this was my opinion for a long time but i gotta say i'm super super super into act V. i think my ranking is odd and probably doesn't jibe with anyone else's but it probably looks something like III > V > II > I > IV. it amazes me how disappointing IV was given how strong "a night on the town" was. also i absolutely do not need this and my wife will kill me but fuck it. you only live once and you only die at the hands of your wife once
  9. the wonder years are also doing a maida vale release. i'm guessing they're related. (that link includes it on the list.) it's going be a 10"... i figure they'd be both be if it's a particular series. that'd make sense to me. not sure why the size is such a big deal though
  10. the wonder years are releasing a live 10" limited to 1,500 copies
  11. wait... they pressed the sampler to vinyl? i want to shit on them for this, but i LOVED the sampler i got from them. don't think it was vol. 1, but it had thrice, avenged, amber pacific – regular rotation in my walkman. man, those were the days edit: yeah, definitely wasn't vol. 1 that i had. still hysterical they pressed it
  12. war paint was good and helped define my summer of '11 but some songs seriously dragged. ditto golden record, with higher highs and lower lows. good albums but not great staying power for me. S/T was much more consistent, and the first three tracks of that album are among the best they've written since 'reach for the sun,' hands down. the new track sounds like an extension of that, and i love it. there's just fundamentally different energy
  13. scorching hot take: mookie's is the best song saosin or anthony ever did this EP did not age as well as i thought it might once upon a time, but it's still pretty damn good, and i will buy the fuck out of it. they could probably pull off a pressing of several thousand
