For a board that complains about vinyl prices all the time, I find it hysterical that's so many of you want to drop $400 on an impractical box set for songs that you have never heard before. And

I was able to adopt 6 real life gorillas from  the WWF for the same price of the boxset. https://gifts.worldwildlife.org/gift-center/gifts/Species-Adoptions/Gorilla?sc=AWY1200WCGBE&gclid=CjwK

If you really think the hype about Gorillaz was because of just a reissue, then you're way off, I'm afraid. Maybe on this board yes, but fans and I have been waiting for 6 years for new stuff.

I believe it was mixed so "loud" that it was causing tonearms on inexpensive turntables to bounce out of the grooves. I may be mistaken. 

You know what, I'll look at this when I get off work. I got this from VMP last year but haven't spent much time with it. Never spun it with my good headphones but on my stereo it sounded fine. Now I'm curious.

Oh, the LP sounds fine, but it is noticeable bassier than most of my records.

 

I just vaguely recall that the bassier mastering was causing issues with cheap tonearms. I believe VMP was specifically requesting information about what turntable you were using if you requested a replacement copy.

The VMP version was mixed incredibly hot. The preference for something 'cooler' would be personal in my opinion.

 

The locked groove issue exists, but appeared to impact a small percentage and was more noticeable on certain setups. A defect, but far from widespread. I love my red version and am happy others will be able to get in on this through traditional retailer means.
