has anyone seen any pressing numbers for other variants?

Did you (or anyone else) get the 'clear' from BM? I have seen a magenta listed on Discogs (this may be the trans purple from BM) and a coke bottle clear overseas. Just curious of any discrepancies before I order some variants.

Some dude in West Virginia...figured I'd just send it back to BM. 

 

At least Sumerian sent me some codes so I can hear the thing before Summer Slaughter.

I dedecided to give these guys a chance again. I listened to I & II and am convinced that this is their best work since Colors. I love the heavy sound that they brought back. Time to order.

Nice, man! I am excited to hear A-II after work :)

Although I'm enjoying both of these, the consumer side of me feels like I just got duped into paying $40+ for what should've just been a single 2xLP release.  The fact that II's sides are labeled C/D doesn't help assuage those thoughts.

Everyone got duped imo. That's how Sumerian is when it comes to vinyl. Every Sumerian record I own is pretty standard for packaging and then the cost is above average. Also doesn't help they don't believe in media mail for no legitimate reason.

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of Sumerian in general.  I don't know if I'd mind it so much if II stood on it's own better too.  To me, it sounds like the back half of an album and not a piece of work that can be enjoyed by itself.  Part I sounded more complete.

Agreed, the album is fantastic. But for a two part album, it feels surprisingly similar to just a normal length BTBAM album lol. Doesn't help that sumerian records is expensive
