I seriously don't understand it. How does this keep happening? I get that with splatter, there can be some differences between photo and actual item. But this is completely different.

I’m still waiting for mine, it should FINALLY arrive later this week. I honestly feel like they would’ve forgotten my order (from 7 months ago) if I hadn’t contacted customer service last week.

My Sonny Sharrock arrived yesterday. Top seam split (1-2 inches) and minor corner bent, both very on brand. I assume they wouldn't be able to provide a replacement. Upon an initial, cursory listen, the record itself plays and sounds great, so I'm unlikely to contact CS.

And with that I'm finally done with VMP. I'm disgusted by their current business model ("Let's sell really expensive vinyl in limited quantities. Our customers will pay high prices because they will tell themselves they can always flip overpriced records on Discogs. Vinyl Me, Ponzi.").

OK then, how many people had a faulty Monk?

I just noticed this. Makes me think @Mather might have something to do with this. Maybe he's getting his own back for all the dished discs sent his way :unsure:

My Monk is perfectly fine but then maybe they're sending all the good copies to Canada.

(I really haven't heard many bad things about this release)

Good ol' Precision Record Pressing. Subsidiary of good ol' GZ. Complete with all the same half assed pressing issues... I'm sad to say they're about 8 kms from my house.

I might be wrong, but I think lot's of people had issues with noise on this one.

There was a very large scratch on my first copy that went across the final two tracks of Side B. My replacement copy did not have the scratch, but there were pops across that same part of the record (although not as bad).

My theory is a batch of the records either had that scratch or were impacted by whatever it was that created that scratch.

I suppose with the amount of defective records @Mather gets, the odds of anyone else getting issues in Canada must be slim :)
I've said it before, I am the vinyl sin eater. I exist solely that you all may receive and enjoy your new unblemished records. If people were to stop purchasing vinyl I would simply cease to exist. Vanish in a puff of smoke, with a faint hint of bourbon...

Would you become a character in your own arcade game?
