My copy of Whiteout Conditions has a busted sleeve. This is why I hate getting vinyl from Amazon. Oct 18, 2017 at 8:34 AM

        I remember that album getting pretty mixed reviews all around when it was released. The live shows in support of it were great though. I think she learned A LOT from Byrne on that tour, in terms of making her shows more of a production.

        I think I let those reviews influence my opinion of the album before I could give it a fair shake. I've given it fresh ears this week and I think it's hugely underrated. What a fun, funky record.

      Gotta say, Shake Shack is enormously overrated. If it weren't an NYC chain I'm not sure anyone would pay attention.

        Also, I think my main problem with In N Out is that I like my burgers very plain. I don't even normally like lettuce and tomato on a burger, and I don't like onions at all.

        I don't add a lot of stuff to burgers either. My favorite kind of burger to get though is carmalized onions and A1. The combo of that is simple, but delicious.

        Also, a note to like every local burger/sandwich-y type place: stop putting mayonnaise on everything! I hate mayo, and it seems to be on almost every food item from some of the best places here. There's one place that's a very small, but good menu, but every single thing except like a salad or something has mayo on it. sticky pudding that.

        The copy I got from VMP is dead quiet and has very nice dynamics. I'm really pleased.

        The only reason why I haven't bought it is because I was in Vegas a few years ago and could have picked it up on sale for $9.99 and passed it up for a couple of other sale titles. As a result, I keep thinking maybe I'll find it that cheap again. I also wish that the Essentials here would be available for swaps.

        @teee74 I wasn't hugely impressed by my early listen, but they put on a great set. Their bassist owns the stage.

        @wokeupnew I know, right? It was a lot of music. Thank God for earplugs.

        Yeah, I got it from Popmarket right before they went down and it sounds great. Come to think of it, a lot of the best sounding records in my collection are Parlophone.

      All four corners of every album in this month's VMP shipment were dinged. I dunno about this new packaging, guys.

        I've gotten a couple of things now in the new box and I had no issues with corners but I do wish the tape covered the corners of the flap. It's really easy for those to get caught on something and both times it was bent back a bit where something *could* have happened.

        Get logged in beforehand. They got shelled last year and stuff went *fast* - also carts don't hold your purchases. It's not yours until you checkout. #pregaming
