        Have you tried the one before, Lost in the Dream? It’s better, my album of the decade thus far!

      Supporting VMP for supporting my Community Pick this week. Thanks, guys! Talking Head's "Fear of Music" came in the mail today. It's a must!

        Thank you for this, it's the better pick i've seen in there! I might dive in, it's a very cool initiative.

        No problem at all! It's an amazing discography and you could argue that this is only the beginning of three flawless albums in a row. Really glad you're digging it!

        I just bought 77 today, which completes my collection of their studio albums. Amazing discography, indeed!
        I would argue that the beginning of their flawlessness is More Songs About Buildings and Food. Eno's era is perfect!

      Enjoying a first listen to a 2018 remastered Tom Wait's "The Heart of Saturday Night", fresh from the record shop today.

        That's such a good album. I have an original press that is well loved.

      Spinning away on Bon Iver's "Blood Bank" while the girlfriend gets ready to spin her VMP copy of Aimee Mann's "Mental Illness".

      Pink Floyd's "The Wall" and Neil Young's "After The Gold Rush" are getting their first spins from the VMP store today. What could go wrong?

      Amazon messed up my David Bowie "Who Can I Be Now?" set and I ended up with a replacement.. the original arrived today for free! Lucky day!

        I know, right? I couldn't believe the second copy (which was really the original lost in transit) still showed up! Now if that could have happened for Five Years...

      Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'' arrived from VMP. Giving a Sunday spin to it, as well as Future Island's "Singles".

        Yeah. Singles is definitely my favorite/most accessible but I do like a lot of songs from their entire discography. My wife and I have seen them twice in concert too.

        They're great live. I saw them once in Cincinnati. Sam Herring still managed to bring that intensity, even at a festival. Agreed that Singles is the most accessible, but man, what a solid band. I bought On The Water, Singles, and The Far Field in one fell swoop. Debating In Evening Air.

      Bowie's "Who Can I Be Now?" has arrived! I'm a huge fan of the Thin White Duke era, so I have a good feeling about this weekend! Cheers!

        Hey, glad to hear everything went smoothly for you! Enjoy, bud! If you remember to, let me know your thoughts on "Five Years". You're in for something special and some quality pressings.

        I think you'll be happy with what you get. The two live albums are well placed too.

      90's night. Nirvana's "Nevermind" and "In Utero" took their first spin tonight. Beer was drank.

        Thank you, sir. I really found myself wondering which album's stronger. I might lean towards In Utero. It felt a little more cohesive.

        In Utero is definitely more creative but Nevemind is an all timer. Landmark gamechanging album. I enjoy it more.

        It's an odd situation for me. A band where singles are shoved down your throat constantly, but if you've never tried the albums... I had to make an effort not to get disoriented, knowing everything coming on "Heart Shaped Box" and "Rape Me", then hearing "Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge..." for the first time. That's what made Nevermind a little lopsided for me too. A few more spins will blend things in better.

      The Cure's "Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me" and Future Islands "On The Water" took their first spin today. Two albums I highly recommend.

      Beach House's "Teen Dream" and "Depression Cherry" are getting the initial spin today.

      Fugee's "The Score", Feist's "Let It Die", and Van Morrison's "Veedon Fleece" all turned out to be fantastic Essential pressings.
