I know it’s priced like a mother. but that won’t stop me touching it like i can afford it instore.
recent Stones Throw debate.
the luxury ltd. edition packages that they’ve been on recently vs. what they are ‘supposed’ to represent.
I’m keeping my opinions to myself as things are far too easily miscommunicated over the internet.
‘diversification’ does not = ‘selling out’
Ultimately, I guess it depends whether the actual music warrants such beautiful packaging.
just thoughts anyway. & it’s madlib & guilty for medicine show pt. 1 so I’m guessing not many are going to complain musically.
this willl destroY. and it’s getting a release – February 8th. Thankgoodness a major hasn’t got involved otherwise we wouldn’t be seeing a release date until six months down the line when peaktime’s passed.
