    I had pre-ordered this via Rough Trade but this album has really flopped big time for me. If anyone is looking for this please get in touch.

    It's the white variant.

    As for trades, I'm interested in adding Beach House 7 to my collection, but open to anything really.

    Hmmmmm, I’ve got the VMP version of 7 and have been considering paying it forward (good Beach House album, but it’s just not my thing. Got caught up in the hype). Also have a standard black copy of The Return with a mark causing some loud surface noise betweeen tracks two and three. Sending it back for replacement on Monday...

    ...do I need the white variant...?

    Yeah, definitely deserves more listens. Easily.

    @Juiceless @Darin Star Boogie I couldn't see anything special or particularly memorable with this album. Given I've only listened to it digitally so far, but the Yussef Kamaal Black Focus album for me was mind blowing and this one just seems plain.

    @Darin Star Boogie if you are interested in trading for the VMP 7 I could go for that. Let me know!

    Black Focus > The Return but I love them both.

    And I’m still considering this trade.

    Yeah I read people’s reviews of this album and some were saying it’s not Bad, just not an album you’d listen to multiple times. I listened to it on Spotify and nothing really stood out to me.

    It gets better every listen too.
    I originally passed on The VMP exclusive because I didn’t think the album was “collection worthy.”
    Bought the standard press a few weeks after.


    You should keep your white variant.
    Are you a PIFer?
    My 7 will be up sometime soon.

    I almost shit my pants when I saw the black focus on the label, thinking for a second that I had received the black focus white variant album inside the return's sleeve. Then I realized they just named the label after the first album.

    The way the bass sounds is what got me. Overall much better than spotify, however there are one or two tracks that seem to have some light static in the quiet sections, specifically the last 2 tracks on both sides.

    If you decide you want it just let me know when you decide. If I'm not listening to it much I would part with it since I don't like hoarding records I won't listen to.
