Lately, I've found myself narrowing the focus of my purchasing habits, and trying to buy smarter. There are so many great classic records that I do not own on vinyl, and looking through my collection, and seeing multiple copies of an album from 2013...well, I just think that maybe that money could have been spent more wisely.
When the new For Pete's Sake record was announced late last year, I checked the bandcamp page for a preview of what was to come. I made it through the first song on the record, and was feeling a bit underwhelmed. For the first time since the 2011 release of Skin Like Iron, I skipped a REACT! pre-order. I felt dirty. I felt guilty. I managed to hold out for around three months before I caved and bought a copy anyway.
On the whole, this is a really good Hardcore album. This thing gets off to a slow start, and I feel that if the lead off track was different, I think that I wouldn't have been so hesitant to grab a copy. Thankfully, the transparent blue vinyl was still available, and I didn't end up regretting my procrastination.
125 pressed on transparent blue vinyl.
