This thing is sealed and absolutely pristine.

    I am seriously conflicted right now as to whether I should open this. One part of me loves this soundtrack immensely and knows I would never part with this unless a family member's life depended on my doing so, and that I always buy to play and enjoy.

    But the other part of me knows how rare this LP is, and how a vinyl repress is likely not happening anytime soon. Do I hold out for what could potentially be months and wait for a reasonably-priced used copy to hit the online market at some point, and keep this gem shrinked? That's still going to fetch significantly, even in overall VG+ condition..

    Fuck this, I can't do it. This record costs $300 in this condition, and will likely only increase in value.

    I've owned it on CD since release day and have it on my phone. I'm just going to play the shit out of it via traditional means for the next few months until I'm sick of it enough to rationalise this decision, rinse and repeat until a second copy presents itself to me..

    from context, i'm guessing it's The Social Network soundtrack (the image won't display).

    i am very against buying records and not playing them. as long as you take care of them, they'll stay in near-mint condition (like about 85% of my collection), even after several plays. i know you know what you're doing. don't leave it sealed, sitting on a shelf. listen to it!

    It boggles the mind that people care about such things, but to each their own, I guess.

    It's true the colored vinyl editions are inferior quality but they are almost always of a limited quantity compared to black. Hence, discogs pricing and fans clamoring. You're on a NIN board. Surely you get this.

    I don't know if any of you are big Aphex fans, but this record shop that is just a mile away from the hospital I work at is selling that new EP. If you are interested, I can pick you up a copy. They are $21. I think I can buy up to 3. Just trying to help fellow fans out.

    Opted to leave it sealed. For the time being, anyway.

    I did some research on Discogs and apparently it has some major fidelity issues? Lots of complaints over the years. It's better left sealed as a rare collector's item in my collection, until a repressing comes along. I'm okay with that. How many people can say they have this in brand new condition and will never sell it? I'm good with the CD and digital files in the interim..

    Oh, I get it. I just don't see the point. Especially if the assertion that non-black colored vinyl sounds inferior to black and clear.

    I don't think there's ever been a sanctioned colored vinyl of a NIN/TR release, has there? There was that bogus Fragile repress years ago that was red or something, but it wasn't official. I think the Prick vinyl in the store right now is the first time I've ever seen Trent endorse a colored vinyl attributed to him.

    All of his other official represses have never been colored and have always offered some sort of incentive for purchasing (PHM 2010, the upcoming definitive reissues, etc.)

    I know but damn. That many people look at Metal Blade's web store? I never heard anything prior to randomly looking on there.

    No fidelity issues with mine, good low and high ends (was lucky enough to spot it in the wild when it first came out). Not a bad as Ghosts and the Slip, that's for sure.

    My only issue with them is that they have a quieter inherent volume than every other vinyl release (Ghosts not as bad at The Slip in that regard), the physical nature of the LPs are fine though.

    The Slip is one of the quietest records I own. Extra excited for that definitive edition to drop!
