    And as @Ryan Kugler noticed, the first hints are up so now would be the perfect time!

    I own OGs of both LA and Quiet- I’m glad they’ve sold out so I don’t get tempted to double up.

    I'm sad that the only thing I like about this is the package as a whole. The music does literally nothing for me, but it is a beautiful package.

    So excited to get this one, musically this is probably my favourite ROTM since I joined (Tidal).

    Spinning this right now, sounds really good. Quiet press, lots going on... I mean obviously, this stuff is all over the place, but it sounds good, technical, not muddy... Good separation between the "instruments"... Bass is deeeeeep. My ONLY criticism so far is that the package is quite flimsy. This would have been nice with thicker stock on the gatefold, it looks slick in terms of the printed sleeves and whatnot, but the jacket is ghetto thin. But I know we don't always get the fancy pants jackets, so no biggie.

    EDIT - Oh, one other thing to add, there are fake record pops ALL THE F*CK over this album. Like everywhere, they all sound different but I A/B'd it and they're all supposed to be there. So... don't flip if you hear them, they're probably on purpose. Unless you know, yours sounds like shit... then maybe not.

    I feel like the sound just jumped right out of my speakers and filled up the room.
