I absolutely loved the Angel Du$t 7 inch last year. Manic and snotty, with a rumble of pop punk running underneath it all. I was really looking forward to the LP this year, and hit up orders with React! and Reaper to make sure I grabbed every pressing available.
400 pressed on white vinyl that was only available through React!.
When the vinyl finally arrived, I had a good feeling about the album. The layout and design looked great...how could this record not be totally fucking cool? I slapped it onto the turntable and dropped the needle expecting big things. The first spin left me rather underwhelmed. That's okay...no need to panic...it took me a little while to get into the 7 inch, so maybe I just need to give it repeated listens. Two spins, three spins...man, there are some really great songs on here, but there are also a handful that fall really flat for me. Overall, I'm disappointed. We'll see if it holds up over the next month or so, but right now, it just makes me want to go back to listening to metal.
400 on clear vinyl that was exclusive to Reaper.
800 pressed on black vinyl. There was another 150 that were pressed on pink vinyl that Angel Du$t sold on tour. Pink is obviously the best color to own for this record, but I don't know if I really want to track one down at this point.
