RE: packaging, as much as I wholeheartedly agree about wanting more, this is very standard for Kranky. Minimal art, plastic sleeve, no inserts.

"The drums and vocals are not mixed low, you're just not listening loudly enough". Definitely a personal top 3 record. I want to live in those instrumental interludes forever. Sounds much softer and less abrasive on vinyl. 💖💗💖💗💖

What a gorgeous EP. Lovely addition of piano and otherwise blissfully droney. Hope Sandoval can do no wrong. P.S. no noise issues here

So want but will never be able to afford this, at the current rate anyways

It's a shame few people know about this record. A dreamy and catchy record with a singular vision, more noisy and imposing than their previous work, it blossoms at large volumes. Definitely my favourite of their catalogue. Other than the single "Dog", ... See full review

The gods smiled at me today. Found a sealed copy in a store randomly. I have nothing else to add, just wanted to brag.

Was this actually limited? I feel like I've seen it in more than one store.

I have the kranky release, and I'm pretty sure it's 45rpm and not 33rpm…

Confirmed. I've only seen maybe two copies with the embossed "RIDE" lettering on the front, and from what I recall there was no Rhino sticker on them. All the copies I've stumbled upon since have been of the cheaper looking variety, and they all did have ... See full review

Have been seeing copies pop up at Sonic Boom in Toronto. Same as kanesque: marble purple and clear red. The quality is excellent; Drive It All Over Me never sounded so crisp at ear bleeding volumes.

OK, but what's the music like??

I've just realized that, for some strange reason, instead of a double album, I, in fact, have two pressings of the same Part I and II record, and am therefore missing the 2nd record of the album with parts III and IV. If, for some similarly strange ... See full review
