I can't believe I sold my copy of this to a record store when I got rid of my collection, not knowing I'd start collecting again a few years later. Idiotic. I should've kept it or sold it here, at least! Great album, and a cool pressing/package. Keep yours, especially if you love the music. I really hope they do an official repress though, I'd grab it up.

Helle There, Check the Matrix of the records. Some sellers sell actually a similar item as the first press. You have the black records and now a cover from another bootleg version. Take care ...

Anyone else have a copy like this with a white cover and opaque emerald green discs?

The majority sounds fine but the vocals on side B especially in “nights” are super distorted and soft. I played it in sync with the digital track through the same speakers and you can really see a difference on nights, which in unfortunate because it’s the best song on the record IMO

I've got a black variant as samivhkangas and share the same experience and impression of it. It sounds decent but unfortunately has some distortion. However, it's a reasonable way to be able to enjoy this album on vinyl.

I've got a black variant. The vocals at times sound somewhat distorted, but for what kind of price the original one goes for, I'm more than happy with this. The percussions and instruments are actually quite decent, the vocals are the only thing that disturbs me a little.

Today 16 out of 25 sellers are "new sellers" without any recommendation. And - by accident - they all start their discogs career offering a rare 1000 $ album...

Almost 5000 people own this and the prices are insane. How is The Weeknd - My Dear Melancholy not selling for this much? There were 3000 made and The Weeknd is WAY better than Frank Ocean. I've never even met a Frank Ocean fan.

4000 people own this LP with the price it’s going for, yeah okay. I see logic in that.
