    I've admittedly not listened to much TV on the Radio, but i've heard fantastic things about this record so count me hyped!

    I don't know quite how I feel about this pick. The album is good, without doubt. Province, I Was a Lover, and Tonight are all some of my favorite songs and they take me to a very specific place in my life (specifically 2009, when I was going through a breakup and Wolf Like Me was playing at every party) But this is definitely one I've heard so many dang times, I almost don't know how often I'd actually spin the thing today in 2018.

    I really don't know if anyone feels this, where an album is almost too good to get on vinyl. Like, by the time you actually get the opportunity to cop it on wax, you've heard it too many times for the investment to actually make sense.


    But that package...as always, you people manage to make it about more than just the music.

    I gotta think about this.

    I'm so nervous about this. It's one of my fave bands and my fave album by them.

    Where can I see the art print??

    Excite! Excite!

    Seriously, I love this band and this album.

    Nice looking package, can’t wait to rediscover it.

    Looks very nice. I know nothing about this band or album but from discogs it looks like there was an early 2008 ORG reissue on vinyl. ORG usually does a pretty good job sound wise so VMP needs to bring their “A” game.

    Thank you!

    I'm going to have to sit and digest that art print. There are things I like and don't like about it.

    It’s great package.

    But if they only had designed new cover art...

    (I’m sorry)
