Just another collector chasing infinity. I run a record blog called A Year Of Vinyl where I review every record in my collection—even the schlock rock I inherited from my dad

Let it be known that the version of Hands Down here is from the So Impossible EP, not the MMBS version. Thank God. However, the last three songs on side B are pulled from the MTV Unplugged live sessions and not the studio tracks. Why did you do this?... See full review

One of the worst mastering jobs I've ever heard, which is tragic because it's a GREAT record. The disc sounds like it's clipping almost the entire time. If my copy wasn't sealed when I bought it, I would have thought it was just extremely dirty.... See full review

There are gaps, but two seconds is a bit of an exaggeration. Half a second maybe. I don't notice any thinness in my copy. Sounds nice and full.

Praytell, how would one go about getting a replacement copy?

My copy came out of the shrink with egregious noise through the opening tracks of sides C and D, which is terrible because Telescope is the best track on the record. Not sure if this is a mishandling from the plant or if there's a pressing issue. Has... See full review

Tracklist here is wrong. The songs are in the right order, but Side A ends with When I Go Out and Side B starts with Get Your Riot Gear. There's also a hidden track after the Pants Opera called When I Go Out/Kingdom of the Dinosaurs.

Interesting note: they must have had the album on repeat when they cut the laquer, because the record ends with a half second of the first song.

Made me smile.

The great shame, of course, is that "How This Will End" is omitted on the vinyl version.

I own this and the original pressing. They sound identical (though the original is a little dirty)

I have a vinyl copy with edited lyrics. I'm looking for an unedited version. Trade?

Mastering of the 2015 vinyl reissue leaves a bit to be desired. The mix is muddy—I need to turn the treble all the way up to get it to sound right. Stereo field is a bit off center too.

I emailed Vagrant and they don't have any extras (I ALSO emailed them when they first announced the replacements). I was able to find one on ebay though and replaced it that way

Probably their most beautiful vinyl package, which is a shame, because it's their worst record.

Unofficial or not, this thing is perfect. Sounds great, looks exactly like the official release. I suspect it may have been a promotional copy for record stores to display alongside the latest reissue rather than a bootleg. DEFINITELY a... See full review
