Coming out soon as a regular $19.99 release, minus the VR gibbons. Praise be!

Got mine super cheap at Amazon.de. Would have rather had this in a 2xLP gatefold (similar to Camp), as a box set for a cardboard VR headset is silly. 90% of the box structure is for the headset. I agree with the others that it looks like someone took a pencil eraser across the discs, minimally impacting sound quality, however.

I'm surprised that some songs had richer sounds and bass than the digital version, like how "Boogieman" sounds more lively while "Terrified" has its sounds more clear and distinct from one another. The "virtual reality" is alright with its cool animations, but nothing special. The live sound has nothing interesting to remember.

Unfortunately, it seems like the handling for these vinyls were very poor. My first copy had a skip on side B, and the second copy they sent me had noticeable sticker-like marks. Not only that, but there were a LOT of surface noise throughout both of my copies. I bought this straight from the Childish Gambino store, like come on.

Hopefully the obvious signs of residue means that giving these vinyls a deep cleaning might reduce the surface noise, but nevertheless I am very disappointed. I still have hope though that these vinyls have better quality versions of these songs, I mean this costs $70 so they have to, right?

Got mine on Amazon De - excellent condition! All four sides perfect. Maybe it's a US/EU thing?

i just opened the a new purchased sealed (outside Mint) Awaken, My Love! Box and i am shocked! Sides A & C are not even VG. Both are heavy Audible scratched, Side D has some strange remains of a kind of sticker. The whole release sounds not good at all and everything is full of fingerprints, looks like 2nd hand (but it was sealed and afrom a good record store) - the Download code for mp3 files is one more dissapointment i thing at least FLAC files should intended to this kind of release... in short: not really "we are committed to preserving it in a way that honors its important place in musical history" [quote from urpressing(dot)com] - is there any option to exchange/replace the vinyl?

Purchased mine from Amazon UK, absolutely brilliant condition and all 4 sides sound amazing. Sucks that people got bad pressings, seems like the release was a bit iffy for certain retailers.

Logged into this account just to back the reviews. Although, it seems I got luckier than most. No print issues, but some damage to the sleeves for the records. TONS of surface noise on all sides, pops, cracks, skipping, the whole deal. Ruins the feel of the album for me because this production sounds incredible on vinyl.
I was very skeptical as soon as I opened and saw a booklet full of photos and not lyrics. Plus, it's very obvious your $50-$60 was paying for the app access and cardboard headset.
Not real happy with this one, would've hoped for more out of Donald's team.

I had 2 copies of this box. Every vinyl were played so terrible. A lot of skips and surface noise. Two vinyl were horrible warped. Where is the quality control in factory for this price?
