so I started a vinyl collection a few months back. it's pretty small so far, but I'm being picky and only getting favorite albums or exclusive stuff. items 1-4 are my collection so far, 5-14 are some records I want to get eventually in no particular order, and 15 is a completely unrelated album recommendation because I don't want to make a separate list for it.
2014 Record Store Day exclusive, limited to 2000 copies. translucent orange.
favorite album of all time. 2010 remaster, 180 gram double LP. standard black.
Use Your Deluge
Black Friday exclusive. clear.
translucent candy apple red.
The Head on the Door
Plastic Surgery Disasters
Brave Murder Day
wishlist. being reissued soon.
|9||The Sisters of Mercy|
First and Last and Always
wishlist. pretty sure there's an unwritten rule somewhere that you have to own this.
Beneath the Remains
wishlist. favorite thrash album. this is apparently really hard to find on vinyl. fingers crossed for a reissue.
|14||Love and Rockets|
Love and Rockets
wishlist. this also seems fairly difficult to find.
|15||Stiu Nu Stiu|
I've been wanting to get the word out about this for a while. I'll just copypaste my shitty rating summary:
"Mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge) and mastered by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna), Ultra Silvam is the debut album by this Swedish supergroup-of-sorts, featuring members of post-rock band Jeniferever, post-punk revivalists The Search, and goth-folk project Promise and the Monster. In a way, the album feels like a combination of all of the members' various backgrounds, mixing dark alternative and post-punk with a couple surprising detours into sludgy post-metal territory as well. While this can make for somewhat of an inconsistent listen, it's still an excellent album and one of my favorites of 2014."
