I got my stand alone copy of ‘Tremulant’ in the mail today. 
I guess the Clouds Hill didn’t want to lose any of their profits from over charging, because they didn’t even bother to use a LP stuffer. I hope everyone likes split seams. 

that's soooooooo whack

Got Tremulant today.  Luckily despite the inadequate packing it arrived mint.

The price is a fucking joke though, basic jacket, standard white inner, single page insert.  that's fucking it.

I haven't had a chance to listen yet, but I'll compare it to this pressing tonight:  https://www.discogs.com/The-Mars-Volta-Tremulant-EP/release/128211

So the new pressing is very nice.  No pops/clicks/noise.  There isn't a huge difference in the audio quality, I think this pressing is a little more quiet than the yellow marble.


However, I also received a copy of Tremulant from the EU store yesterday, an order which I had cancelled, and it came with fucking COD charges.  We'll see if they respond but I'm probably just going to end up disputing the credit card payment.

Wasn’t MOV’s a similar shade of opaque gold?  Didn’t seem to stop people from dropping $200+ on it.

Yeah, it matches the cover super well too, and looks fine in person. (The MOV). Whiners gonna whine though. Pretty much all their recent posts are complaints about something.

Got my Cloud Hills Deloused. Didn't even get a shipping notification. Just showed up. Small seam splits and pretty basic packaging, but I'm just glad to have a copy.

Yeah they sent me a replacement jacket for Deloused. Arrived unannounced. Now if I could just get the replacement LP I actually needed.

FWIW I had to open a dispute, then they refunded me in full, never asked for the EP back so I flipped that shit 🤷‍♂️

Did you ask for a replacement or did they just randomly send you one knowing that there would be splits from the vinyl?

If this was for me, I had opened a ticket months ago saying I needed a Deloused LP1, LP2 from Noctourniquet, and a jacket for Noctourniquet.  Both the LPs look rough, but play mostly fine except for the visible non-fill causing it’s signature paper ripping sound. The Noctourniquet jacket looked liked someone sat on it prior to stuffing it, as everything else in the box is in perfect condition. 
 

they sent me a jacket for Deloused. I emailed them. I’m sure they’ll make it right. Things may be slow right now, but the CS has been good.

Got De-loused today, did a comparison of the MOV silver pressing to this, used B side of LP1.

 

They are both really good, I'd say that Clouds Hill is extremely slightly clearer. But barely noticeable.

 

Bare in mind I just have an Audio-Technica 60 with a shit receiver and an old surround
