Ive got mines hanging on my wall. The first record to get featured for me :> Its really nice. Sadly I put the record down on my table and my cat came over and scratched the front and now theres a bit of the cover ripped off... I wish my cat just got to the white bits..

It's a reach back into the archives from the good old days or Arcade Fire, when the sound was a spectacular folk tale collision not the weird Abba-esque cul-de-sac they seem to be stuck in now. Not a high fidelity listen, but its pleasant enough delivery, considering when and what it was recorded on. The musical ideas are boisterous, the lyrics whimsical - a blue print for what was to bloom in Neighbourhood.

My pressing has continuous low level noise in the right channel, both sides, but it's only noticeable in the gaps and doesnt effect the enjoyment.

I know the official line is that this is a "transparent blue" vinyl pressing, but I'd say (judging by my copy) it's more translucent than transparent.

10,000 were produced worldwide, 3,000 of which were released in the US. Per RSD’s twitter post:

“RSD listing on the US site is US numbers. All copies (for all territories) would be produced together, and then split out. 3000 in the US does not mean the numbers would be 1 - 3000. (even if it was just US release, more numbers would be on jackets because of overruns/errors)”

Also, someone on twitter said they were the product manager for this and they confirmed the 10k number. You can let RSD know your feelings on it by commenting on the twitter thread.
