No point in talking about the music, I haven’t even gotten there yet. See that mark on the record? Both sides of one disc, looks like a cigarette burn. It’s also smudged and has fingerprints on it, which tells me someone saw this and tried to wipe it off. When realized it wouldn’t come off, they STILL included it in the box set and sent it off to be sold.You can’t make this shit up. That’s 3 new releases to date, haven’t gotten through the rest yet.Is it fair for me to conclude that the quality control issues aren’t just my imagination, or “bad luck”? You tell me, I’m just the messenger. Should I be telling you about stuff like this, or should I be keeping my mouth shut about it, for the sake of not pissing off the labels? I assume the labels can’t like posts like these but my guess is they’ll blame me for being the asshole, instead of working together to actually address the issue. I wish it wasn’t true, but I fully expect to receive blowback for using VJ to shed light on this problem. Will keep you posted, I’ll handle the blowback before compromising the mission statement on which this community was built.
