        Downloaded and listened to a brand new, 13-track version from Extratorrent yesterday, after which I saw a brand new DL of the movie Three Thousand Years of Longing (from Untitled - 46 glorious, extra seconds - is the extra track; wam, bam, thank you mam! Vinyl colour, stickers et al are for babies and hipsters. Noone really cares about the music today, and buy pig coloured vinyl like it was a new thing! Sheeeat, there were coloured vinyl singles in the 60s, if not earlier. You lack passion for the music, boys (I've never seen a female comment on Discogs in 15 years)!

        I bought this on CD 30 years ago, and haven't heard it in some 25 years. Why would I pay for it again? I already bought a lot of CD versions of my 6,000 old LPs that I sold in 2007...hopefullly, PVC will become even more expensive*. The industry is thriving on fools like you, and don't care about illegal DL:ing anymore...I got like 12,000 albums on my HDD:s, and several thousands of movies (as if the 15,000 I've seen so far isn't enough...)! I enjoy all music from one, single 14" Harman/Kardon loudspeaker that sounds better than the two 2005 one meter tall Sonab loudspeakers (on 0,5 m tall stands, and with golden contacts...) I used until 7 years ago, when I moved here.

        /J, Sweden (A ramblin' man)

        *) For those who've come this far: As a pre-retiree, I use the money I'm saving on travels around the world, and have spent 11% of the past 40 years abroad on all continents except Oceania and the 2 poles. On my fist trip to the US in '94, I traveled in and through 25 states in 6 weeks. Except for 6 long distance flights (and a one-hour trip in a tiny jet from from the Grand Canyon Airport to Las Vegas, across he canyon and the Hoover Dam), I traveled 13,000 km (8,000 miles) by train on a 30-day rail pass. The first question I got from an American onboard an Amtrak train was: "Do you have cats and dogs in Sweden?" And people say Americans are for myself, I was in lovely Andalusia in Spain again for the 2nd time in 2 years - 3 weeks in March/April - then 5 days in Amsterdam again in April/May. On Monday, I'm off to Riga, Latvia, 10 days (my 3rd trip there), and in October, I'm flying back to Marrakech for a one-month trip around the country. And I've already paid for a 2-week trip to Albacete, southeastern Spain, in March keep on spending your dollars on colourful vinyl! Make my day(s)!

        PS. After a concert with generic Kentucky metal band Black Stone Cherry in Copenhagen last Monday, I saw a Fiona Apple (no, you dont know her) DBL LP in the window of a record store. I haven't heard her since I bought her 3rd album for 8 bucks some 15 years ago. In the dark, all I could see was that the vinyl was in opaque, and that the price was a $40 and change...a must for any Danish, female hipster, who easily pays $100 for a lamp in the ceiling made from an old Nilfisk vacum cleaner from the scrapyard (they invented the modern vacums, not Hoover...the Danes also invented the classic loudspeaker, hence Bang & Olufsen and Swedish, world class Carlson loudspeakers already in the 70s - only Boston and JBL could compete with them)!

          Has the box set been listed on Discogs yet? I don't see it.
          • jaredjestes's avatar
            Whats the deal here? Is there not an original 1992 US LP Pressing? That doesn't make any sense, why is this record so scarce and why does it seem like there is only Brazilian copies available for sale? Something doesn't check out here.

              Any word on a 30th anniversary reissue like Facelift? Seriously the fact that we can't get a copy for under $150 is ridiculous.

                Wait a second here, this has never ever been released on vinyl in the USA? Did I miss something?
                • redstingray1977's avatar
                  Anyone A/B tested vinyl vs CD? This album is 58 minutes long, it really should have been released on 2 discs. Volume and dynamics suffer when this much material is crammed onto 1 disc. This is evident with lots of 90s pressings. Machine Head's Burn My Eyes (55 mins) sounds really dull for instance.

                    Which vinyl edition has the best sound quality?

                      I have a Canadian copy but it's not from Columbia House. It is identical except for a slight design variation on the back cover. The text is black and the barcode is in a white box. Also the fine print says 'Distributed by Sony Music Canada'. Also, it's odd that there is no mention of how the 'untitled' track messes up the numbering of the last few tracks. It's always bothered me about this cd and there is no mention of this in any of the notes or descriptions.
