  • Are the singles vinyl sold out or not available yet? I just found out about this and can't find it
  • Tim SimmonsTim Simmons Posts: 5,030
    Not out yet. On RSD.

  • Thanks for the info. So no pre-order like the other stuff?
  • Tim SimmonsTim Simmons Posts: 5,030
    No. You'll need to go to your local record store on Record Store Day to buy it. or many stores put their stock up online after RSD and you can buy it then. They are doing 3500 copies of this, so it won't be that hard to get.

    $55 for a plain old double LP, plus shipping? image No thank you. I'm very disappointed in Soundgarden for that.

    You're still bitter about that horrible show they tried to pass off on us at the QE.

    Yah. It was the shits for sure.

    Had the potential to be awesome too. That's what sucked the most.

    I do not know if someone has already asked the question, but is this set only released in the States or in Europe too?

    It's listed on the recordstore.co.uk website so I would presume so :)

    I don't know what I was expecting from Matt Chamberlain, but damn, he's fucking incredible! I'm sure some obsessive fans will be able to pin point tiny mistakes, but he is quite clearly an exceptional drummer in his own right.

    Amazon.ca is often cheaper than Amazon.com for new vinyl. Strange.
    I still think it's too much. I'm probably going to try and find an original pressing on the 1 disc (as it should be), once the prices for it drop because of the reissue.

    This is finally getting released today!! Go get it!! Best Buy has a cool exclusive for a download code for an app to listen to the entire album in DTS X 11.1 via headphones on iOS or Android phones. This is the first album to be released in the DTS X 11.1 format to the general public. Sounds like all the Super Deluxe editions have access to the app, but cost $80 more.

    Definitely not buying this until the price drops. $50 for a standard 180 gram double LP is ridiculous. Keep an eye on third party Amazon sellers. In a few months the price will most likely drop into the $25-$30 range.

    It's actually 200 gram and it does have the extra track tacked on the end "She Likes Surprises". Not that I don't think it's a little pricey, I don't think you're going to see the price drop you're hoping for.

  • Tim SimmonsTim Simmons Posts: 5,030
    Mine just came and it's not 200g. One is about 180 and the other is 190. Also the silver is standard. The records themselves sound great. But it is over priced. This is a $30-$35 record at the most.
  • Tim SimmonsTim Simmons Posts: 5,030
    Also, it's annoying that they changed the art for this and the RSD singles. I get that they wanted to set this apart from original pressings, but the new stuff in as a terrible look. It seems like it's done to match up with all the art that has been done post reunion.

    One extra track should not add $25 to the price. Amazon won't drop the price but one or more of the 3rd party sellers might. When the vinyl of AIC - The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here came out it was listed for $60 because it was a picture disc. I waited quite a while to buy it and ended up getting it for $20 brand new from one of the 3rd party sellers. It may have been 6-9 months later but well worth the wait.

  • I pre ordered on Amazon UK and paid £24. It's gone up to £29 now but can't understand why it so pricey in the U.S. The RSD box was £90 here but only about $45 in the U.S. - weird

    The 20th anniversary of Superunknown has got me pumped and back into Soundgarden. I compiled a top 20 song list that I think a few of you would enjoy. Neither Spoonman nor Outshined are on it. Soundgarden Top 20

    Agreed. Would really like to own this, but can't justify $50+.

    Can we get a review if this from someone who has it?
    How does it sound, did they do well with the remaster?
    Looks like its dropped to under $40 on amazon, im thinkin ill take the plunge once i can get it for a fair price... $30 seems about right.
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me

    Sounds great. They definitely turned up the volume on it, but it sounds fine. While louder, it also sounds more robust. Despite them advertising it as 200g and it being 180g, the pressing is quiet and very well done.
  • The 5 disc deluxe set is fucking incredible. The demos disc is so raw, but mixed nicely. Came with a DTS mix of the album that uploads into a SG app from iTunes.

    Really like listening to the demos on the deluxe CD version. I only have the 2 disc version, but am happy with the songs on the 2nd disc. The recordings sound excellent, especially when travelling down the highway...can't wait to see these guys in Mansfield this summer!

    Did you (or anybody) get your copy of the double LP from the official website? I ordered a bundle shirt/ double LP and was hoping that they have shipped them out despite the delays I am reading about in this thread.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated!
    The last PJ show I went to was the best PJ show ever, that is until they come around again of course
