1500 Pressed Sky Blue (Band Webstore Exclusive)
750 Pressed Pale Yellow (ETR Exclusive)
750 Pressed Black (Hot Topic Exclusive)

Thought about waiting for the Enjoy the Ride variant but the sky blue looks great.

I asked this on VC, curious if anyone here knows. Between the gatefold jacket and ETR's description saying LPs plural i assumed this would be a 2xLP. It appears to be a single. Is this the case?

$25 for a single disc?? That's pretty outrageous. Maybe I'll pick up the black from Hot Topic instead..

I'm sick of everyone taking advantage of the vinyl market. People are barely buying music as it is, yet they feel the need to exploit people.

Is it really exploitation if people are willing to pay it? Why is music basically the only commodity held to these standards? The Chipotle burrito you buy isn't really made up of things that = $9, the Playstation 4 is sold with a profit margin. Things are priced where people are going to buy them ... at the intersection of supply and demand ... it's not being sold for charity.

I agree that vinyl prices are going up -- but that's because demand is going up and they can charge more and make more money. There's a philosophical question about what the profit should be on any product ... but we can't just apply it to vinyl arbitrarily.

Just ordered, I can't wait for this. I have a shirt signed by Andrew that says "Watch the sky" so the silkscreen postcard will actually make a great gift for a friend.

As for the conversation about price: To me, this album is incredibly important and so influential that $34 for it with a signed silkscreen postcard, AND a t-shirt is not is completely worth it. Ultimately, what it comes down to is how much the piece of music is worth to a particular listener.

Bottom line, $25 is kinda crazy for a single LP. Regardless of who's willing to pay that price.

This sky blue variant being is listed as a "10 year anniversary" edition.

I wonder if the variants being sold by Hot Topic and Enjoy the Ride will be standard and therefore cheaper.
