Yeah I bought it, of course, though I am returning to vinyl in general. I also question the "this is too bassey for vinyl" thing... c'mon, there are loads of insane dub/etc cuts out there that tax speakers yet manage to keep a needle in the groove. Just takes a bit of engineering. It is fine to not want to release something on vinyl, in fact in this day and age it is crazy to do so, but "too much bass" is not the best reasoning for it.

In this case, this is what is likely:

1) CD arrives, look for lyrics, personal message from JC, etc, become disappointed at the lack of such
2) dig up USB CD drive
3) rip it/encode it/etc
4) Give it a good listen
5) realize it is on youtube etc and streaming from home server is not worth the effort
6) question why I bothered with step 1-4
7) sleep well knowing that I gave a few pounds to my fave artist/label/website
8) post about steps 1-7

Ooooh, cheers fer the heads up, I always forget to look in Merchandiser. I like the Dope stuff, so order put in. Do you think 'Foden' is a homage to the Norse god of large trucks.

Hello I’m new here.

This arrived this morning, I was very pleased to see it so quickly. The album seems to be of a similar vein to the Dee Dee Ramone Story. Pleasant listening!!

To be fair, he actually says "No possible release for this baby on vinyl, however, as the final 27-minute-long “The Binding of Loki” is both too damn long and too damn bass-heavy"

I'm not an expert on these things but if they tried to cram 27 mins on one side it would surely lose quality at the bottom end?
