Ahhhh I went ahead and ordered this anyway despite all the warnings about quality control issues and mine arrived with a big tear in the top of the sleeve. The record sounds fine though. I just think the sleeves were made too small.

this album is a nu-metal, pop masterpiece. rina has really snatched my wig. this vinyl came as a really pretty gold colour and i really recommend getting this.

Really pleased with my copy got it from HMV on a whim quite lucky. Was reluctant to buy it because it wasn’t shrink wrapped but they let me check it over in store as I was returning a shrink wrapped vinyl which had pressing issues so shrink wrap or not At least you can check it there and then. Quality of the image isn’t great not sure if that’s the point Inner sleeve some writing is upside down (not sure if intentional or not) don’t think it should be priced at £20 but still really like the vinyl Itself. Also got a digital download card for the album.

Surprisingly my copy had some hints of a light gold tone to the record. Fantastic album, and great pressing!

Has anyone tried to order the Japanese CD release and gotten it? I ordered it from CDBANQ but I’m highly doubting I’ll get it.

I'm gonna get right to it with how this came delivered to me:

I ordered this on July 3rd, after she announced the restock. I didn't receive it until a month later, on August 4th. When I finally got it, I opened it up to see that it didn't have any shrinkwrap around the vinyl itself. Just completely out there in the box. Also, the box itself didn't have any bubble wrap or any kind of protection for the record itself. I'm beyond lucky that the only damage it got was a chunk of the sleeve ripped off on the top (which is annoying since one of my favorite parts of record collecting is the packaging).
I know, they ship from the UK, so I imagine your experience was probably better if you're closer to the warehouse they ship it from, but ordering overseas was a terrible experience.

The album artwork looks like it was resized to fit the size of the sleeve, it looks really grainy. The vinyl color itself is amazing and captures the album perfectly.

As far as the sound itself, it's a lot better than I expected. On heavy songs like STFU! and XS, I expected huge distortion. But they sounded amazing. The record itself isn't distorted or warped at all, which is great, I totally expected it to be servery damaged considering the terrible shipping job.

It's a shame that her album was treated this way, it's one of the best albums of 2020 so far and it absolutely deserved more love. Hopefully this is the last time she works with Dirty Hit, They're awful. I hate to give this 2 stars, but the way DH handled this amazing album was terrible.

I bought this off her online store, and it for some reason came to me without any shrinkwrap or anything, Completely opened. The CD itself was poking out of the side of the case too. I don't know if it was some kind of error, or if that's just how Dirty Hit packs its items, but the gold vinyl also came pre-opened like that as well.

Regardless, the album is fantastic. Only giving 4 stars for the weird delivery of the CD itself.

Does the lyric sleeve inside have two songs listed upside down from the rest? I notice there's a separate release listed as m/p but wondering if this was actually intentional.

Is it my copy or does anybody else hear a lot of surface noises on the slower songs (such as Bad Friend & Chosen Family) and also in between the tracks? I tried washing it but it's still noisy.

I have just received my vinyl and it arrived in a cheap cardboard box (damaged at the corners), the vinyl sleeve itself is low quality and was severely bent and the vinyl disk itself has a pretty sizable chip taken out the edge. Really sucks because I am such a huge fan of Rina but this quality is appalling. I've reached out to Dirty Hit but I'm sure the replacement will end up just being as bad. Buy with caution.
