My box set arrived (After multiple emails to Thrill Jockey, a company that's got to be amongst the worst I've ever dealt with - no email confirmation of order, hardly ever respond to emails or messages via Facebook messenger, and no tracking number given for delivery...) badly packaged that on opening I sliced into the box by mistake as it was only wrapped in brown paper!
The lp is great, the bonus track is ok but not essential, the sculptural non playable lp is signed and fun. I've no idea why I had a wooden ball in my box as an extra if the concept is about plastic!?!
The music on the album is great, quirky fun idm. I've yet to actually play the vinyl as I downloaded the lp direct using the included code. It in honesty doesn't look the best vinyl but that's probably because it's made of recycled old vinyl... hopefully that doesn't mean the sound quality suffers because I've experienced these before and re-ground vinyl can often result in a poor sound.
Otherwise however the whole package is great, I do feel however that maybe more info in the box would be good for buyers to know more about the concept.
I also bought the CD and that's packaged great but again little info as to the concept behind it.
