    School is free in here, and we've been in the streets every 4 years in order to keep to it free for anyone.

    School is expensive in some other countries.. and we get more students from those country moving here for school.

    You have the right to complain, which does not mean you will start a fight for it. 

    I personally think 44 Canadian dollars for 2 LPs is expensive.. And I know I am right... although I will still buy it. 

    If you're not happy with my opnion, just buy it, pay the price and life goes on. Tomorrow it will be another 5$ more and you will pay it again without complains.. Thats how it work I guess ! 

    What? School? Streets?

    Came here for the complaints about PJ dot com charging $12 to ship the record.

    Maybe I'm early...?
    Ha, that's my complaint, but I am mostly done bitching about shipping. Instead, I just don't order from 10c unless it is something exclusive. I ordered Gigaton from Amazon, so I immediately saved $12 (the silly shipping charge), I'll likely get the record sooner since 10c loves to send their shipments via Mail Innovations on a tour of the surrounding counties and states, and I'll also get the digital files in my Amazon library on release day. Not sure why I'd want to order it from 10c.

    One of my favorite things about this whole forum is the amount of people complaining about others who complain, and tell them to keep their opinions to themselves if they want to complain. DO they not see the irony in that? Its on almost every thread, so I'm guessing they really don't.
    Do you mind if I complain about you complaining about people who complain about people complaining?  :)
    And prefacing the complaint with "one of my favorite things" is kind of a passive aggressive way of complaining---btw, all tongue in cheek...
    I don't mind. But really, it wasn't a passive aggressive way to complain. I think its funny and get entertainment out of reading it.
    How many times has someone said "If you don't like the price, don't buy it. No one cares about your opinion." Or the equivalent on any number of other threads. "Stop complaining about the missing singles, if you don't like what the 10C is doing then leave. No one cares about your opinion."  I find the irony in it funny.
    So do I....to be clear...I was just trying to be funny...

    We had a next time, was at the same hospital but went much better. Partially because we knew to expect a quick labor. Official labor time was 5 minutes for the second. The problem was the first time being our first kid they didn't believe us she was in labor and refused to check on her for an hour, and by then it was too late.

    It's called a metaphor. 

    Complaining is fine.. it's not a bad thing... if done with respect.

    i went to sunrise records last friday. Lightning Bolt was $89.99. 

    you read that right. $90. 
    Saw that myself today there. 
    That makes no sense?  It's not out of print or anything? 
    sunrise has proven criminal. when the new tool cd deluxe package came out, it was $69.99. i passed on it. i went there the next week again (for something else) and at the checkout i noticed the price was $89.99, and the clerk told me point blank it's because they figured out what the demand was. i couldn't believe it. i'd never seen that from a music store before. 

    my guess is with a new record coming out, they know the demand for pj vinyl is going to be high, so they doubled the price on it. fucking crooks. 
    The new tool cd has a video and usb charge
    I know it does. I know it's not your average cd release. my point was that sunrise raises prices exponentially based on perceived demand. i've never seen that from a chain before. It's like they've become the secondary market with a store front.

    Again, just for clarification, most records pressed at QRP, retail for about $35. Granted many are 200g AAA cuts by a great masterer (which we don't know who did Gigaton), but this floating around $35 certainly tracks. (there are probably other factors at play, this a new record, these others are reissues, so they have to compete with decades worth of other pressings being sold used and much cheaper).

    Its certainly pricier than the average $25-$30 double LP, and record prices have gone up a lot in the past 20 years, so people may balk, but I don't think this is outrageous pricing either.

    What do you suppose you are accomplishing by complaining if you still buy it? Every copy they sell just affirms that it's not overpriced. Your $$ speak louder than your words. If you don't buy it and complain in order to get others to do the same, well at least that's a strategy.
  • Tim SimmonsTim Simmons Posts: 4,397
    Yeah, these will be cheaper later in the year. If its too much now, wait it out. They will press a ton. Amazon will have a great price in the fall.

    I dunno..just over 3 bucks a song isnt horrible since you can listen to it over and over if ya want..But if their is a " Grimmie" on there , you should get 3 bucks back..

    usually, 4-8 months after a record drops, you can get for much less from them. Just camelcamelcamel it and wait for a lower price.

    15 years huh, not that long you missed out on the typically priced under $10 records
    $35 is a little on the high end for a 2xlp but not by much and it looks like the packaging will be pretty nice so $35 seems pretty fair.

    record prices have gone up with their popularity/demand, happens with everything.  If you’ve been collecting that long you should know every mass produced release prices drop pretty frequently over time.

    just be thankful they didn’t release it for record store day because then they’d probably charge $65 for it
    yeah i really wish I was into vinyls back then.. 

    I was still buying PJ records before though. Got copies of Benaroya Hall, First original releases of most albums back then, Lost Dogs and many more rares items.

    Also, most albums were released at 17.99 or 19.99$ each ( Canadian money ).. Then around 2012-13-14, prices started to get crazy.. 

    With time I got a pretty good collection of really good quality albums...

    For those who started collecting since only few years, it must be pretty insane to buy all basic albums. 
    Haha you said vinyls.....

    Just a question, but if this is the best sounding PJ studio album on vinyl, would you be happy to pay the $10 extra?

    Consumerism is a double edged sword. No one wants to pay that higher price, but then we hear about the labor and wage issues that happen with the price cutters and evil capitalists of Walmart and Amazon. We all have a choice to make and we will do so based on what seems reasonable for our situation. I despise Walmart, so I don't shop there. I am starting to despise Amazon, but I still shop on there; however, usually only for work supplies and if I waited too long to get someone a gift :whistle:

    I'll be buying Gigaton from PJ directly because I feel it best supports the artist and their employees. Maybe I'm wrong about that, but I feel better about that than handing over my money to any of these other large merchants. Later on I'll check my local record shop for the vinyl, if it's there, great, if not, no big deal. I'm in no rush.
    It's a hopeless situation...
  • Just the €50 here in Ireland.  3 record stores confirmed that price to me. This cannot be justified on any level.

    For AAA yes of course. But we will be getting a hi-res digital file cut to vinyl.

    Just buy the HD Digital, and then you don't have to worry about pressing inconsistencies.

    Yeah, kinda kicking myself for not doing the same.  I'll pay $13 more than everyone else, and get the album 2 weeks after release now. It's like I'm a glutton for my own punishment.

    Yeah I don't know why the hell I pre-ordered from 10c when I could have just ordered from Amazon.  it's not like it's even a limited color vinyl or anything.  I think I did the same thing with the Let's Play Two vinyl and ended up cancelling my 10c order.  I may try to do that again.

    My local record shop here in the UK say it's going to be £42. That's 55 USD. Whilst I was in there I bought the new Angel Olsen album for £20. Double LP, 12 page full size booklet, separate A1 poster and download code. Now how is it that for 2 comparable items, one is over double the other? I don't understand that. The only thing I can think is that they know the PJ market will spend that money (older, probably more fanatical fan base). 
    Of course the basic logical conclusion is the "if you don't like the price don't buy it" argument, but that's not really the answer when the question is "is this right?".
     I think employee wages and working conditions are really important, more important than my access to music. But I also don't think that anyone in the Chain that brought the Angel Olsen album to release, is working in conditions they shouldn't be for too little money. Maybe that makes me naive. I'm open to someone with more knowledge of the process telling me otherwise.
    For the time being, I can only assume that the price point is set at the maximum amount that they (I'm not even sure who they are , the label? Distributor, band? Do the band even know what the price is?) think they can get people to pay for it. If that's the case, I don't think I'm ok with that.
    This isn't just people moaning amount things that cannot be changed, it's part of a bigger discussion about how we, the consumers, are treated. And that's what this place is here for, discussions.

    They make it very hard.  Absurd shipping prices for extremely slow shipping.

    Sounds like some of you should shop at different record stores.  Retail seems to be $34.99 anything over that is probably on the shop not the band
