    Well, if we want to get technical, the cassette is neither vinyl nor round.

    Car has a working cassette deck. I wil be engaging those reels soon. I found a metallica garage days a while ago on rectangular plastic. It sounds phat! (Are the kids still saying that)

    That's just how The Mars Volta sounds...

    Purchased the CD at Target in 2003, listened to it once and it's been on the shelf since.

    So you decided to go with the AS version too.  Can you hear a difference against the one from Target?

    I had the CD when it came out but sold it back to the shop pretty fast. Figured some time has passed, and I should give them another shot since so many people hold it in such high esteem and it was coming up on the subscription anyway. 

    Sorry to hear it’s a lousy pressing, though.

    Just finished listening to mine. Guess I got lucky because it sounds great! I gave it a coupla good cleanings first after reading your review here and others elsewhere and then resleeved it in Mofis. The included inners suck.

    Can’t wait for the VMP Wu release. That album deserves some love. The pressings I’ve had have all been terrible.

    Both. From the info I got on Discogs it looks to be the 40th anniversary edition from 2015. But I bought it used. It is almost mint condition. I haven't listened to it yet so I hope it sounds good.
