I collect music. Who'd have guessed? I'm frequently at my local record shop. Let me know if there's something you're after, as I might be able to find it for you.

Holy smokes, y'all are a joke if you pay more than original retail on cheap colored vinyl. My local Sunrise still has six copies and it only opened two years ago. One town over there's about eight more. If you can't find it, just message me and I'll see ... See full review

300 were sold as pre-order package deals and there were pre-orders for the record alone, I think. Deals for pressing vinyl come at 100, 500 and 1000 copies generally. If I had to guess, likely 500. They would probably just tell you if you asked directly.

Just wondering how one might tell if it's a test pressing or not? Normally you would indicate some difference in the notes. Something.

It's funny because the last time I talked to them months ago, I asked if there would be a pressing at all and got a similarly indecisive response. Pretty much why I let my guard down and this one got by me. Head met wall. Big wtf moment.

Thanks for that. I was waiting so I could donate a sizable bit with my purchase, like I have with all my past DIY Bandits orders. It sold out right after you opened your mouth. I would understand saying something if it had been years, but the release was ... See full review

If anyone has one to sell, I'm looking for one. Not sure what happened to the copy I was about to spring on.

Curious as to whether anyone else has this version. Let me know if you do. I find it hard to believe I've stumbled across another rarity in the same shop as the last few.

Great mix of tracks by a great band. Gemini is the only song I don't dig. I have some kind of luck though, having found an official radio copy. Only one I've seen.

Better than the trash you hear in most local dives. Generally goes U2, Kiss, U2, Garth Brooks, Garth Brooks, Garth Brooks, then alcohol poisoning.

Odd, I kind of felt the opposite. There were a couple strong tracks for sure, but it sounded like a mash-up of their side projects to me. I too liked the way they nodded towards TSOPTC at times, but I'll probably stick with the pre-millennial portion of ... See full review

Huh, I guess I have a Kiss The Stone TP for this release. It's on CDr and screened by hand with different disc art.

It's too bad Mort didn't get his own spin-off instead of Cleveland. That show is dryer than my chafed assy nipples. At least I can listen to old Jerky Boys and get a little fix.

The sound quality is there as far as the pressing goes, but this really doesn't sound like a Refused album at times. Leans harder towards being The International Noise Conspiracy. Freedom was a much stronger release, which was their weakest attempt prior ... See full review

Good thing I didn't dig the band too much in the first place. Hurts less that they screwed with it. Gotta wonder who the space cadet was, messing up this album.

There's already a page for this album (https://www.discogs.com/Tephra-Tempel/release/2720668) but I can't seem to find an entry for the standard 180g version. Perhaps someone just added the wrong picture to this page, making it seems like there's two ... See full review

None of these A.A.I repressings are any good. My copy of this one wont even play through, especially if the player is automated. Mine at least was pressed too close to the center. Maybe if the label had sent me the right version, it would have helped. I ... See full review

My copy is pristine and sounds great. Seems like a few people just drew short straws, or need to adjust their levels/clean their system top to bottom. It's great on both my players, one being cheap junk and the other being TotL.

Mine is full of bubbles and embedded flakes, but plays perfectly. Really odd. The sound quality is good and the record itself is straight as an arrow. It only looks warped to get chicks.

The first two albums are killer. My attention begins slipping after that. As familiar as their sound is, they're still pretty unique. Would have loved to see them playing with Breach and Refused back in the day.

This is old, but I can't resist. They wanted it to remain threatening and potent, and thus it had to change from what people had become comfortable with. Somehow you've misread that %100 and concluded that they wanted to take those factors out of the ... See full review

Could well have been a defect that missed out on being coloured. I've had it go the other way as well (colour in a standard vinyl). Sometimes a defect can increase value, which might be the case there. Kinda cool.

The 180g version sounds really well produced. The music itself is mostly enjoyable, but things change and people change in the course of over a decade. If you expected some kind of continuation to The Shape of Punk to Come, you'll be disappointed. It was ... See full review

I guess I'll have to do a review when my copy arrives. Why is it that nobody has anything to say? Thought there'd be a little more buzz than this.

Great reissue. Took a little fiddling with my levels, but it sounds pretty sweet through my Pioneer RX-540. "Check Your Head" is still my favourite release by the B-Boys, but this takes seconds pretty comfortably.

Pretty solid album. Sounds like a continuation of Vertikal, if you ask me. It might also be their weakest release to date, though with the bar set as high as it is, still fairly good.

This isn't a reissue, as far as I can tell. Seems to have released in '95.Contains a single-fold insert without lyrics and a different disc design than all the other releases. Fantastic album, as far as the music goes.
