Well, for a person who only 'speaks' in links, you are very helpful
FWIW, I like the Avatar. Very David Lynch / Black Lodge...
I've ordered another one but kept the original order, if they both turn up I may send one back or keep as a spare, should get my money back offloading it in a few months
Could be a ploy from Amazon to get people to cancel there £20 orders and reorder the £13 then turn around and cancel all the £13 orders saying it was a price error or is that just me being cynical
We do not bite. Two orders all of us!
Destroyer - Kaputt £6.13
(Item sleeve pictures show four sides 2LP but description only says 1LP)
Constant line-up changes and frequent diversions in musical direction means Destroyer are shamefully more of a cult attraction than a household name. But that might be about to change. This seamless collection of songs is gaining increasing numbers of admirers, and reached a respectable chart position of 62 on the Billboard chart when it was released stateside in January. It now lands in the UK courtesy of Dead Oceans.
Destroyer is effectively Dan Bejar from Vancouver, who since 1995 has steadily garnered fans of indie rock/shoegazing grooves. Pavement have been a previous touchstone, while his last album, 2008’s Trouble in Dreams, mined glam rock; but this time he appears to have written an album of love letters to the 80s pop of Scritti Politti and Roxy Music. It’s effectively the sound of a man so tired of waiting for a follow up to Roxy’s Avalon that he’s written it himself.
Bejar claims his hitherto inconsistent line-up is now settled, and it rings true. Blue Eyes is typical of the album’s whimsical pop, recalling The Field Mice, The Blue Nile and Saint Etienne. It draws a line in the sand early on, with the line "Your first love’s New Order"; fans of whom will also grin at the bassline of Savage Night at the Opera, coming across like a Low-Life outtake.
Expecting people to listen to a song called Suicide Demo for Kara Walker is brave enough, but making it eight minutes of lush harmonies, guitar licks and reverb is visionary. The title-track may sound similarly dreamy, but Bejar has had enough of "Chasing some girls… chasing cocaine through the backrooms of the world all night", leading to a wonderful sign-off: "Sounds, Smash Hits, Melody Maker, NME / All sound like a dream to me."
There is no shortage of hooks and sweet female harmonies, but this album is as much as about atmosphere as hit singles, as the strident guitar line of the conversational Song for America proves. Few tracks clock in below five minutes, while the closer, Bay of Pigs, a come-down hymn which makes a case that the second summer of love never ended, registers in at many more, yet wastes not a second. Despite this, at only nine tracks you’re left wanting more, and with the sense of being privy to an album too many people will miss. Kaputt is a genuine classic, unlike anything any other artist will release in 2011.

Heh... not paranoid or anything, do you think...?
Heh heh... consistent...
FWIW, the one you chose for your Avatar in my lowly and wretched opinion, is by FAR the best looking one.
I am starting to wonder if these are the cds or a European bootleg of the original issue- makes no sense to be so cheap!
It doesn't look like it; if you change the .co.uk to .com in the original link it takes you to the US page. In the unlikely event that it is, you can write to amazon and explain that it is counterfeit product and they should reimburse you all your costs; if you are really lucky they will let you keep the product.
Yowza...just saw this and had to bite at less than $25 CDN shipped! Fingers crossed that it ships, but no harm if it doesn't.
See it has now jumped up to 103 pounds. I got greedy and ordered two copies, as long as one goes through I'll be happy.
No update on the Dead, but when the first deal was posted I also ordered Pink Floyd Saucerful @ £8. Just got notice that Saucerful is shipping, but nothing on the Two From The Vault set, but it is expected by Nov. 10. I don't think I will have it by then unless it ships like tomorrow.
Heh, this is indeed becoming a bona fide DRAMA now! Almost a THRILLER, really...
IIRC, the DEAD deal was subject to the customer being a PRIME member. Is this correct?
No. I ordered it and I'm not.
another that may or may not happen
i'm still waiting for my replacement Led Zep album its been over a month now, i'm not sending the damaged one back until I get the replacement
there appears to be a few they are trying to shift
This is £5.40 now!
Cheers, just been listening on youtube, first time i've heard of this act and sounds great. 2to4 weeks wait but mp3 available now. Great deal for double vinyl.
James Taylor - That's Why I'm Here (vinyl LP)
Dizzy Gillespie - Paris...Always (Volume Two) (vinyl LP)
Geordie - Don't Be Fooled By The Name (vinyl LP)
Let's hope it ships and is the 2LP. But for a fiver it would seem well worth a shot.
Courtney Barnett - Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit [VINYL] £7.64
Thank you for the heads-up. James Taylor ordered.
Interpol - Antics - Vinyl £6.92
