    Has anyone received their replacement of Tom Waits' Closing Time from ANTI yet or heard anything in that regard?

    I received mine about a month ago, right after I got Heartattack and Vine. Didn't get a notice about it, just one day it showed up in the mail.

    It was a bit noisy throughout, the songs at the end of each side (Martha and Closing Time) were near unlistenable. On my copy, Closing Time skipped really badly halfway through, possibly because my TT isn't very good, but the new copy they sent had none of those issues.

    I got mine after asking their twitter person repeatedly. It showed up crazy warped, but I cant get anyone at the label to respond to me.

    Mine showed up in a Relapse label mailer with no notice. Black vinyl copy not the VMP one.

    All replacements were supposed to be on black.

    Oh, I thought they were offering replacements for the VMP version as well. That sucks for the ones that got a poor copy of that.

    I'm quite happy with my replacement copy. Sounds much better than the one I picked up at B&N

    I'm pretty sure they were offering clear vinyl replacements for the VMP version. But again, no sign of it here.

    Holy crap, me too! It just showed up out of nowhere. I was definitely not expecting a replacement for the blue vinyl, but it's a happy surprise.

    How does it sound? Any improvement over the VMP version? Hoping my copy shows up out of the blue...I had all but forgotten about this.

    hmmm...I filled out the form and took a picture of the VMP release, but didn't hear anything back that I can remember. Wonder if I have something coming or not.

    It's definitely an improvement. I did a side by side with the first song, Ol' 55. All the pops and cracks are gone and it sounds much clearer. The blue version sounds almost muffled compared to the replacement.

    Also, I never heard anything from them after I submitted the replacement form. This just showed up with the mail yesterday.
