Which "Mind Shaft" variation does everyone have? I'd love to see what they all are.


March 31, 2018
In places this record has some epic grooves! In places the rhythms make me uncomfortable, but that's OK! Nice to hear Jack pushing the envelope.

NO download, no box, no bueno. Kinda a bad move on Third Man's part IMO. For $60, we got a 12" , a 7" a 45 adapter and some pics. They couldn't spring for a small box to keep it all in so it reamins together? The record is over all OK IMO, I guess I just miss The White Stripes.

I love this package, probably my favorite one because I like this album, very much.
Enjoy it everyone !


March 21, 2018
Was there supposed to be a download in the LP sleeve as well? Didn't find one and I know TMR rarely includes one, but I remember the previous one (Lazaretto) included a code...


March 21, 2018
This isn't a box, it's a normal LP with the 7" inside.


March 21, 2018
Got my package in the post today. Single is blue, however LP is plain black, not blue and black swirl. Anyone else got this?


March 21, 2018
The package itself is a good one. Nice marbling for the swirl, Jack White's pale face for the sleeve is iridescent. The additional prints are on quality paper and the foil inserts are a nice touch. I like the "Challenge" coin much more than the metal or enamel pins normally offered. It has such a weight to it, that I'd hesitate to call it a coin at all; it's pleasant.

Very polarizing stuff here on this record. Out of the thirteen tracks, I feel as if only a handful of them are actual songs and the rest are just spoken word / noises. By far one of the "out there" records from Jack. Not saying it's a bad record, not at all. It's just very experimental and I am glad to see him exploring and trying out new things.
