Hell yeah man! Oo I'm jealous of that. I have a bunch of Converge flags hanging in my house and it's pretty funny who recognizes them. People I wouldn't expect!

I missed this album at its time of release, but I'm glad I've found it now. I saw the hype for her new album and was searching for her stuff, when I saw this album at a crazy sale price on the label site and decided to snag it. My copy came in very... See full review

Wonderful breakdown of the packaging, but I'm scratching my head at your assessment of FlyLo's previous work. To refer to Until the Quiet Comes as "lo-fi" is particularly confusing me. I would say the production is every bit as texturally complex as... See full review

How does the timing of the shipping affect your review of an album... Also, I have had to wait months and months after release date to get preordered vinyl to come in these days. Ten days is actually pretty impressive with how backed up everything is.... See full review

Did anyone say you weren't allowed to have your opinion on this album? All I see is some light criticism of what you must have known would be a somewhat hot take. You want to talk about surviving in the world, how about learning to handle some... See full review

Truly great sounding pressing, and the wax is quite stunning as well. I love the brother's production here, if I'm understanding the roles correctly. These instrumentals are fantastic. It's honestly kinda weird to me that it's only her name on the... See full review

My copy of this album sounds amazing. I have no clue what the users complaining about quality are experiencing. Gave it a good cleaning, and there isn't a single bit of surface noise to be found. And there are some very quiet songs on this album!
posted a review of Jeff Tweedy - Warmer. about 1 year ago
Gorgeous album of music here. Not sure if this was intended as a sibling album to Warm or just the B-sides, but it sure doesn't come across as B-sides in quality to me. Another full disc of that amazing early Wilco/Uncle Tupelo vibe throwback sound... See full review

This might possibly be my favorite of all the VMP releases I've received. I had no clue this band existed before getting this album, and it has rocked my world. The pressing sounds amazing, and they had gotten the packaging down at this point. No more... See full review

Lol, yeah again I agree, just making sure you do know that our eyes see in 3-D and that lenticular covers are not bad for them. Sarcasm is hard to read online.

I had been eyeing this version of this classic album for a while, and finally got around to snagging it for a decent price. I kinda wish I had just held off. The sound of this pressing is not up to snuff. It has nine tracks and roughly 25 minutes... See full review

Obviously they aren't actually handling the creation of the records, but this is an exclusive pressing for Newbury, so I'm not sure what other to call it than a Newbury pressing. Fine, the Newbury "version" of this album. My point is, their... See full review

Lol, yeah I see the anger about the lack of a marker squiggle on here. Pretty silly. As if it made a single difference in how the album sounds on their turntable and how the music affects them... You'd think the discs were faulty across the board with... See full review

I'm a pretty big fan of this album (the first half or so anyway), and it's great to have a physical copy, but the sound just isn't quite on point here. My copy has a ton of surface noise after a thorough cleaning, which is not helped by the mastering... See full review

Lol, you're not a fan of the artist because your jacket doesn't have a marker squiggle on it? I'd say a priority check is in order... Did you buy the album because you love the man's music or because you were trying to make money from selling a signed... See full review

Fantastic release by VMP here. Been wanting to get some Townes, and I guess this is as good of a place to start as any. Sounds perfect, disc fits the jacket well, and the booklet is a nice touch. It's a great pressing all around.

Amazing sounding pressing of a surprisingly good album. I was totally unaware of this man until receiving this record, and I immediately fell in love with it. I was playing this for a few friends the other day and I think he earned a few more fans.

We're on a run of oddly mainstream choices for record of the month, but I can't complain at all about this one. I have always loved this album, so I'll take a new fresh copy to listen to. This is top 25 favorite all-time rap albums material for me.... See full review

Great B side track! Glad I snagged this thing for that song. Sounds perfect. They seemed to have pressed way too many of these, as there's a huge stack of them on the counter at my local record store this week, months after the release now.

There's an unfortunate amount of surface noise, but I really don't find it very bothersome during the tracks, which sound very full and loud. It's a good pressing, just not absolutely perfect.

Really solid sounding pressing of the 94 classic. I was worried when I saw clear wax, but it sounds plenty good enough for me. Tracks are nicely spaced and the beats sound full. I recommend getting this version.

It's a shame that you can't appreciate this album in its own right without comparing their general sound to some other band. Almost all music sounds like something else, doesn't mean it isn't great. This is a fantastic record.

Very interesting way to release this on vinyl. A single disc of regular vinyl would have made a ton of sense and been much easier for every party involved, but that ain't what they did. Instead we got two picture discs for 36:04 of music.

So glad I snagged one of these on a whim. Such a great EP. The sound is great, although I've played my copy so many times I think I've introduced some extra surface noise. No offense to the Escapism EP series, but for me this is by far his best work.
