    Holy crap, this is beautiful. I know Gorillaz and Fiona we're big albums for you guys but imho this one blows both of those out of the water.

    So...I can take that as a, "Yes this is the original '94 release"?

    They list all the samples in the stax of wax article so I'm guessing they are all there!

    Not that I was planning on swapping (Machine Gun Funk on vinyl was a must no matter what) but I gotta say I wasn't super excited about about this until I saw it. The colorway and packaging look better than the last two months by a mile and I'm actually pretty stoked to get it.

    Responses on whether it's the original 94 release or not are cagey so far but it's looking like...maybe? or not?

    This is absolutely legit. If I hadn't already gotten Gorillaz, this would be the biggest aoty so far for me. But even then it's about the same level. What a grab.
