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

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
