    Can't wait to get my hand on the VMP Pressing. Classic album the pressing looks great and i love the fact it comes with a bonus 7'

    [​IMG]

    @cjschaefer does the 7' fit into the package in any way? is there any story behind you guys getting this record?


    On a side note. I don't get the art at all.

    Pretty psyched for this one. Totally new to me, but the package is stellar. Where was this pressed @cjschaefer?

    I always have a hard time fitting my 7' into the package.

    Cool looking set, good album.

    At least it's classic, if not one I enjoy and not another Lapsley...

    With any luck, I can actually get what I paid for it upon resale too.

    I'm so happy this ended up being true - such a great album!

    @cjschaefer can we expect more interesting, special pressings (in terms of color) like this in the future? I always wondered why you guys don't go all out more frequently (see: that beautiful TWoD pressing, or the awesome 2 variant Youth Lagoon record, or the 2-tone Sisyphus).

    Top tier VMP record. Right up there with Paranoid.

    It's easily the best AOTM of the year. The album is both fun yet melancholic, free flowing but as precise as a major movie

    Ummmm.... I don't particularly get it either, it is SUPER COOL looking though and I would happily frame that one.

    not sure i agree. to me it looks like a bad high school collage by a bro who took art thinking it would be an easy A.

    But its art so i might just not get what it represents.

    I love collaging so I think that may be why I like it so much. :p That's the cool thing about art, different people see it differently.

    I've haven't been this pumped for an AOTM (though Lapsley, Nils, and Broonzy were great surprises once I actually dug into them) in awhile! Forgot how good this album is; brings back to when I'd sneak into my bros or cousins rooms and listen to their hip hop albums.

    Blasting this at work now.

    I like that art print a whole bunch.

    I'm also super excited about this release. I'm so bad listening to/ finding hip-hop, so I'm glad VMP is sending something like this.
