    My box arrived today at lunch, one day late but in perfect condition.

    The Feist ROTM is my favorite overall ROTM package thus far. Very nice job VMP.

    @vinylmeplease Listened to Feist again last night. While it's not my favorite ever AOTM (that goes to Fiona), it is my favorite pressing/package VMP has done. It's cool looking. It's FLAT. It sounds AMAZING. It's crystal clear and impactful. Nice job!!!

    So you don’t have any extra noise tagged on in any spots? Definitely nice copies out there, just had a replacement sent to me recently. Got my fingers crossed for a good one, I’ve really come around to loving this album

    Look what I found at my local yesterday, for the cool cool cost of a three-month international VMP subscription.

    Nope. I even listened closely at the tracks noted to be noisy by others on here. It's clean all the way through, which I think is critical on this album, so I don't blame you for asking for a replacement if it's not.

    So now that I've listened to this a few times and am really enjoying it... is the whole 2nd side covers?

    Yea. And I believe on the back cover it’ll give you more details (the songs she wrote and who wrote the other ones). Also the lyric insert only covers her songs.

    Sonic consistently has one of the worst mark-ups in the city... only behind Tiny Record Shop, from what i can tell.

    I've never seen this record in the wild before so I couldn't tell. Seemed to be in line with what most people on here were saying OG copies went for.

    So what's the drill ? I get it on video and send it to info@ and cross my finger for a clean copy (in about 2 months) ?

    Yyyyyyyep. You don't even really need to get the audio clip to them, they'll believe you. Especially considering how many people are telling them the same thing. But I find it doesn't hurt. I usually only send video of warps though, I have never sent audio, usually I can find the imperfection on the disc that's causing the crackle and I just send a pic... Like so:

    Those are two different copies of Roach and Hassan.

    Just want to say kudos to VMP on this one. Just about worth the mad long wait for it to arrive!!

    So I liked it on Spotify but though it was a bit meh. It’s so beautiful on this record, falling for mushaboom and lonely, lonely in particular!!

    I described the sound and said the video was too big to email and asked if I needed to upload to YouTube, Josh said no worries, not necessary. Aside the last two songs on side 1, this album sounds amazing!
