Music great, outer cover thinner than card used in ready meal food packaging.
on 16 June 2014
This is the June 2014 reissue vinyl from Vinyl 180.
Arrived warped in transit from Amazon Logistics must have had a hell of a journey!
The cover is made of the thinnest card imaginable, .35mm, thinner than a ready meal box, thanks Vinyl 180! The RSD Vinyl 180 release of Crocodiles had a decent thick card cover but this is a joke. Shredded Wheat box card is thicker at .4mm!!
I expect more for my money than this 'quality' Vinyl 180, who made this release under license from Warners.
Vinyl itself made of Silver vinyl is however OK and flat. Pressing fault at start of Ocean Rain track audible click each revolution. (OK on replacement).
Inner sleeve has a pronounced record shaped mark all the way round both sides.
It's going back. I've waited so long for this delayed release. Disappointed.
Today received the replacement this time c/o Royal Mail. This one bent over too on bottom right corner! Seems no carrier can manage not to damage in transit. The thinner than a Shredded Wheat box cover doesn't help. Amazons frustration free cardboard outer doesn't stand any rough handling either as evidenced by both copies received having the same type of across the corner bend/crease running 4" where the edge of the vinyl is. Geez what am I supposed to do, keep sending it back?
Sent it back and third time lucky, delivered by Amazon Logistics today and nothing is bent in transit. Will probably stick with CD's from now on, vinyl is too problematical to bother with.this and other releases more than 50% are duds or damaged.
