    Other than the 45rpm aspect, the original Ten Stories box is far superior to these new collectors editions. Unless they add something unique, I'm going to find it really difficult to buy new boxes for Ten Stories or Untitled.

    You laugh but if they stick to it, they’d still manage to ship before SRC.

    Pretty likely, but yeah... I really am not a fan of that fine print they added.  I was bitching about it in another thread recently, too.
    I already ordered from TRL and I know they're not exactly flourishing over there.  You can sort of tell by the amount of releases they churn out that it has become a labor of love.  I already ordered a box through them... and as nice as it'd be to save $10, there's no way I could bring myself to e-mail them for a refund.  Gonna' support them and let them keep that extra $10 since I think they need it more than I do.  The added peace of mind is just a bonus.

    Too busy listening to people who were inspired by Mogwai and did a bad job trying to be them, instead of just listening to them.

    This. Absolutely this. Unless I’m getting my copy signed in person, which is free, signatures don’t mean anything to me. If it’s included, I won’t scoff, but I’m not paying more for it. 
     
    I’ll always take a book over anything really, besides more music. Like I said in the AIC thread anything else is fluff. I’ll especially take a book that gives me insight to the album. Love listening to the album and flipping through the book. That’s kinda the point of tangible music, right? What am I gonna do with a poster or a signature? A print is cool but I’ve never really liked one that’s come with a release. They’re usually magazine type fold outs.

    That’s interesting – extra packaging and art or “accompanying media” that captures the essence of the album or band seems more interesting or cool to revisit than some scribbles that you weren’t even present to receive in person.  To each their own of course, but I guess “signature fascination” is fascinating to me.

    Same. I'm bored with Gumbo-core. I love that Mogwai and Explosions in the Sky have been comfortable exploring new territory. I skip over a lot of post-rock these days.

    Moving outside of post-rock a bit has been what's kept them interesting to me.  I've mostly gotten bored with the genre, but new a new Mogwai releases still excites me.   Wrecked my weekly budget a bit, but I went for the deluxe box.

    I thought it was, only because I've voiced that opinion a few times on the boards only to have most everyone rush to RT's defense.  Which is cool, I get it – there's some nice stuff to love on that album.  But like you said, I think it has the most "skippable" content from just about any Mogwai release.  It also feels like a pretty meager offering being a single LP – what was the last single LP before that one?  2003's HSFHP?  (Mr. Beast is technically 1.5 LPs, right?)
     
    I get what you mean about needing to be in the right mood for HWND.  But that's sort of how I feel about the majority of their discography, and that's where half the charm lies, for me.  CODY is such an incredible experience, front-to-back, but it's admittedly not something I play all that much throughout the entire year.  But oh lord, does it hit the spot on chilly fall nights or when the sun retires for the evening, in the winter.  I will agree that ECS feels a little more... "broadly reaching", I guess?  I've had it on in the background, or while driving.  I've had focused an intent listens to it, day and night, and it just works a lot of the time.

    Sometimes I feel like I'm the odd man out, but Rave Tapes was a stumble in their catalog for me.  I don't hate the album, and the peaks of the album are tremendous – Remurdered, especially live, is something I'll never tire of – but sandwiched between HWNDBYW and ECS?  Tough spot.  Otherwise, yeah, their main discography is aging beautifully and I do admire how expansive their sound has become.  Their early albums will always hold a special place in my heart though.  Not strictly because of the production or prominently delayed guitars... but because I feel like there was a real culmination of so many things going right on that EP+6 / Ten Rapid / Young Team / Come On Die Young stretch.  They were tapped into something timeless there.

    Comparing first listens, I think I like Dry Fantasy  more than the premiere of Coolverine. I love that song now in context of the album, and it gives me chills.
     
    I can see them putting some noisier/heavy elements on this too based on the art.
     
    I know a lot of people clamor for the delay-heavy crescendo post-rock of their earlier material, but I honestly think Mogwai get better and better with every release. Their album-crafting is top notch. Three years into Every Country's Sun, and I still can't get enough of that record.

    (Maybe I'm just thinking of that Rave Tapes bonus 7".)
    Yeah, I honestly think I like this new single more than I liked Coolverine on first listen.  Coolverine was working that "big , spacey crescendo" angle.  Like you said, I think Dry Fantasy is more of a vibe.  Great melody, texture, and pacing without being too synth-heavy.  Really dig it.  I like that it's not the opening track, either – seems like it could nestle itself nice before or after a "banger".  I hope they whip out at least one track on par with Old Poisons on this record – the grit and style of the album art feels like it'd lend itself to some noisier or heavier moments.  That's the knee-jerk impression I got when I saw it, anyway.

    it appears to be "player based"
    I was actually one of the people it was affecting. In fact, i gave two copies (an orange and a clear) to Dan Weyandt that were doing it to me, they do not do it for him.
    The tests showed nothing (i was not one of the test pressing approvers) and the people that approved the tests have no issues still on production copies.
    I can now play them (i tried 10 different copies in various colors) after adjusting my antiskate, and swapping out needles. 
     
    Basically we are dealing with a "borderline" issue at the cutting phase that, while there is nothing inherently wrong with the  press, it IS a master that is going to cause problems with certain setups (based on the issues i am seeing really GREAT turntables are having it as well as cheap ones). if united pressed more, the same issue would be there, if we exchanged copies currently for people, the issue would still be there. 
     
    basically if we do a repress we will have it recut from scratch.
