Tool Vinyl BUYING GUIDE (Original/Boots, etc.)

So contrary to FYE's assurance, it's probably safe to assume homie threw down $15 to PO a CD, right?

And I definitely didn’t pre-order a CD. I could have maybe pre-ordered the new “Jewel” LP “Deer, I walk with ‘em” but definitely not a CD.

Hopefully this “cool story” won’t set off another pages long argument but here goes. I saw someone posted a photo of an upcoming release schedule for FYE which looked different than the one they put out, seemingly an internal email type situation (with all the Tool discussions going on everywhere I can’t find it for the life of me, I’ll keep looking). It specifically said the word “vinyl”. Then another user mentioned that he had pre-ordered the CD there for $5. So I figured why not just try to pre-order that “maybe vinyl”.

 

I asked to reserve a copy of the new Tool vinyl Fear Inoculum and they seemed to know exactly what I was talking about, no “what is a Tool?” And then I asked multiple times for them to make sure it was for the vinyl. They assured me and the receipt says vinyl specifically. Plus it was $15 instead of the $5 I’ve seen people mention with pre-ordering the CD there. 

 

That being said, the receipt has the release date as TBD. Now, that picture I saw could have been fake. The people at FYE could be full of shit and have no idea what they are talking about. But we know there is a vinyl release coming for sure and I “might” have an exclusive variant pre-ordered or I might not. But I’d rather have it maybe preordered than definitely not. So... argument ensue! 

you pre-ordered a $40 CD, bud.

You’re reading comprehension skills are shit man. 

aS a ToOl FaN, you should be more enlightened and know the intricacies of grammar, the golden ratio, and punctuation.

 

EDIT: Jesus dude, quit with the double and triple posts. No one cares that much about what you have to say. Do you see anyone else doing that? I don't even do it and I'm fucking delightful and no one wants to see me double or triple posting.

 But if you mean anything starts an argument here then you’re probably right. 

^this. 

FWIW, I'm not a Tool die hard, but I think the song sounds great. I really like the mix too. It's very crisp and clear, and not compressed to fuck. I like that Maynard's vocals sit kind of low in the mix, and I bet the next song in the album sequence opens up. I'm really looking forward to the album, and I hope we get a proper vinyl release. I don't give a shit about packaging bells and whistles, I just want a nice, clean, black vinyl copy of the album.

Dude, I’m trying to be helpful here. I am a Tool fan, in a Tool thread, trying to help other Tool fans get a copy of their new album. When someone is a dick, I try to say something funny. You are being a dick on purpose. Good for you.

Thanks for actually talking about what we should be talking about. I love the new track as well. It took a good many listens to shake of any expectations and to start to unpack everything but I’m more than happy with the single and can’t wait for the full LP.

I didn’t mean to double post jackass. I accidentally quoted the wrong post so I deleted that and reposted it under the right quote. Why would someone double or triple post? What would be the point? Again, why are you being a dick?

It’s Friday, I’m bored at work, and you’re getting really upset about it... but mostly: Do you truly believe your local FYE is the only place in the world in the know about a limited variant for this release?

Its okay, you’ll get the grasp of posting soon enough, I know it is just so hard.

Haha, this fucking guy. Goes out of his way to be a dick then plays the ole “I’m cool, calm and collected and I baited you into getting upset so my job is done” thing. Yea man, you got me so upset I’m fucking crying in my Cheerios over here.

I never said that man. All I am saying is I went to my local FYE and seemingly preordered their upcoming vinyl version. That’s it and to my knowledge no one has confirmed or denied that info. That’s all. Does it seem unlikely? Yes, it does and I’ll be the first to admit that. I’m just trying to be helpful and relay info just as I am thankful for any info anyone can give me. I’m sure you’re a nice guy but you’re being a dick here for no reason.
