    Here you go. FWIW, many of us have been waiting for close to nine months, and replacements are just now beginning to show up.

    Mine came from Epitath in LA, no notice or anything, I actually thought it was a gift from my wife and she thought it was something I bought for my self.

    I’d say you are about to get one, too.

    I'm in Portland, so I'll hope for the same. An early Christmas, 9 months later.

    Just got my replacement for the VMP Blue. Honestly, mine wasn’t unlistenable. Minimal pops. But doing a side by side, the overall audio quality seems to just sound better on the replacement

    Got mine today.

    Looks like the had it recut by David Cheppa at Plush Vinyl. Pressed at IRP like the VMP release.

    I'm getting ready for work tonight, so I can't compare it to the VMP release right now.

    That clear version was what got replaced with this new cut, along with the regular black...and the VMP blue lucky for us.

    Peter Lyman cut all the previous 2018 color variants, this new replacement was cut by David Cheppa. So within Discogs this is a different release.

    has the replacement reached Europe yet?
    I'm curious to see if the replacement will be honored for us also...

    This thread was so helpful! I requested a replacement from http://www.anti.com/news/closing-time/ in December 2018 after reading about it here, using a screen capture of my VMP order of the blue copy. I just received a package with return label as Epitaph Records even though I wasn't expecting anything this week from any vendor. And here it is, the clear replacement. Nice way to end the work week. If anyone needs to replace theirs, be sure to submit at the link here and then forget about it for a while. It will come, rest assured.
