    ‘Cosmogramma’ is an album fueled by grief, love, the psychedelic and otherworldly, an effort to decode the world beyond what we can see. His crossroads moment birthed the kind of beauty he always sought to articulate. Upon release, it was tagged with every genre imaginable, and none could quite thoroughly encapsulate what the Flying Lotus project had accomplished in one breathtaking feat. It’s jazz, electronic, experimental, hip-hop, fusion, IDM, avant-garde, everything. It’s an epic, a “space opera,” the crown jewel risen from the L.A. beat scene.

    What's in the Box:
    Deluxe Edition Vinyl
    •Half speed remastered at Alchemy UK
    •Black and white marbled vinyl
    •Exclusive alternate album art

    My guess: Tobacco - F*cked Up Friends

    Rationale:
    • Electronic album
    • Has only been on vinyl once before, OG copies go for $80+ on Discogs
    • Has a new album with Aesop Rock coming out in January - cross-promotion?
    • I've been bugging VMP about looking into this album since I joined, and I will continue to do so until it happens (or until there's confirmation that it will never happen)
    • Plz

    I never understood why this gets tagged as electronica, isn’t it shadow, two turntables and a mixing board?

    Since I have that on vinyl already, can we do Downward Spiral? My collection would be happier.

    That was just repressed in a definitive edition... I really don’t see NIN being it... Trent has been doing that himself.

    My guess: Everything But the Girl - Tempermental

    I love this album and it's impossible to find for under $80-$100...plus this would give VMP a chance to repress Walking Wounded and finally press Amplified Heart for the first time!

    Oh man, Amplified Heart is so horribly overlooked. I LOVE that album.

    My guess is Annie "Anniemal"

    Not pressed since release in 2004.

    Okay, it's a high possibility that it's NOT this... BUT, I'm throwing my hat in on this one:

    The KLF - The White Room. Horrendously out of print classic from the British acid house band, home to "3am Eternal," one of the best songs of 1991.

    I've been playing the hell out of Tracey Thorn's "Record" from earlier this year. So good.

    I’ll throw out my guess too:

    Major Lazer - Guns Don’t Kill People... Lazers Do

    Rationale:
    Who doesn’t love a 10yr anniversary debut album! And it’s never been repressed.

    I’m gonna guess Selected Ambient Works 85-92 by Aphex Twin. I know it was a strong guess for last January so maybe this is a makeup for that?
