    4, there’s an RSD version coming out. 

    I was thinking the clear / indie was the RSD version, no?

    That's what I was thinking too.

    I don’t think theyll go nuts, but I can see as many as Earthling. 

    Indie clear
    10c hi melt
    std black
    maybe a VMP variant? Or Target?

    I'm really on the fence about the 10C version or the RSD variant.

    Pearl Jam is celebrating indie record stores with the release of a special edition of Dark Matter on April 20. Only at participating stores as part of Record Store Day. Get more information and find stores at www.recordstoreday.com

    this is at the bottom of the news release on the homepage.

    Saw that, too. Pretty sure that means the RSD version will be something other than the clear.

    Not a great color, but I do love that effect.

    Maybe it will be more yellow than olive.

    IDK. I err on the side of just let people enjoy stuff if they have the means. 

    I think the red is good enough for me tho.

    I made a deal with myself when I saw that pearl Jam started going this route of several colour variants with their re-issues - that I go strictly with the tenclub version going forward whatever the colours might be. The same if there is a reiusse I do not have.

    I think this will look a lot better in person. Hopefully I will be able to get one easily, since I ain't standing in line for hours. RSD just isn't fun anymore for non-flippers. Just speaking for myself.
    1991- Hollywood Palladium, California with Temple of the Dog, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains -RIP Magazine Show Oct. 6th
    1992- Lollapalooza, Irvine, California
    Nothing since then. I suck.
    2016- Fenway Park, Boston - Both glorious nights
    2022- Oakland Night 2

    I like it. I just emailed the 10C to cancel my preorder and I'll get the RSD variant. My local place will probably have a bajillion copies.

    I’ll get it with no F’s given.

    And the black editions tend to have better quality control/less pressing issues.

    And nowadays, the print run for the "standard" editions are sometimes (often?) lower and more "rare" than for the coloured one(s)

    (not sure about the quality control/pressing issues thing though. If that has ever been prooven)

    My local record store will probably have 6 copies, depending on the edition size which I'm guessing will be 10,000.

    Wasn't one of the reasons for discontinuing the Fan Club Single due to challenges with procuring vinyl - now we are getting multiple versions of the same music...

    The fan club singles were made in house. Not done by Universal Music / Republic Records.

    My guess is Target will have their own exclusive when the Album drops.

    They never gave a reason. My guess is low interest from the band and management.

    Its always been dependent on the plant were its pressed and style. QC issues increase when the biscuits are mixed (split/tri/quad). Technically the natural color is a cloudy clear (Look at the UHQRs or Mofi One step, which don't use black and use a high quality pvc that isn't black). The theory is the carbon used for black creates less surface noise, but I don't think thats been proven either. 

    In reality, it all comes down to the plant where its pressed and the quality of the materials used.

    How ‘bout the Stones with their 30 different covers in every MLB team’s colors?!
