    Got my blood moon yesterday, can’t wait to spin it. I love the layout, though I’d have to say my favorite Zao layout was the cd of The Fear, those transparent sheets that completed the lyrics were so cool
  2. Thanks

    I agree that the last album was craptacular, but it was 100% Carrie and Corin's fault.  The drums on this new song are really weak and Janet's absence is really obvious.

    All three ITTCT albums are being repressed, pre-orders here: https://eu.kingsroadmerch.com/metal-blade/search/index.php?search=If+these+trees+could+talk
     
    Hopefully these sound good. I had the Mylene Sheath pressing of "Above the Earth..." and it was the noisiest vinyl I have ever owned. I will be so happy if these are better... 🙏

    I agree. Why do they have to be held hostage by some nebulous "demand" by "fans" for all their records to stay "limited." They're a band. They should manufacturer in the numbers that they think they can sell, regardless of how plentiful that makes their records. Only insufferable whiners bitch about maintaining the scarcity of their precious variant. They could also undercut flipping by making a large quantity uniform pressing of "boring black" and that would drive down the incentive to flip specific variants in a set of 9 on the steam of how scarce and sold out they are.
     
    Their logic is backwards.

    “Geoff… this statement seems really fair and should go over well on social media.  Is there anything else we can do to maybe soften the sting for fans that feel they’ve been wronged?”
     
    “🤔 Can we somehow post it in comic sans?”

    I wanted to go balls in with the whole thing.  I know that each act really stands on its own but the album enthusiast in me would’ve been annoyed to only hear a quarter or a half of this record at once.

    Statistically speaking, if "prog[ressive]" is located within any 1 of the first 3 genre descriptors that come to mind for a band, there's an 87% chance the general fanbase will be insufferable.

    If you’re going to troll, at least play by the truths established in the thread: 2 great albums, with the remaining being various shades and temperatures of hot dog shit.

    Yea I didn’t get up at fuckin 4am for nothin.
     
    Also this is bad and wasteful but they wanted to charge shipping 3 times so I placed 3 separate orders. Not sneaking money away from me you mfers.
     
    and I’ll happily cancel if they pop up via bullmoose or colored copies via vmp.

    I think that price sticker is just an example of extreme markup. The standard black FTM was never more than $35 direct from GSL back in the day.
     
    I mean, inflation is one aspect but there are still plenty of small labels putting out high quality 2xLP's for around $20 to $25. I don't think inflation alone can determine the going rate for records.

    Of course it’s all opinion, and we’re each entitled to have our own.  But it’s one thing to say “I never could click with this album, and 12 years later I still don’t get it” vs. “this record was never enjoyable.  It’s bad”.  I was just riffing off the objectiveness of your post.

    Bruh, you paid $500 for a Mars Volta box that has like 2 serviceable albums at best.  Let's be real.
    Untitled LP + EP are indeed so good though.  On first listen I thought they were among the band's best material to date and in hindsight I still feel that way.  Definitely revisit those sooner than later.
