A little bit of surface noise with a 2M. Didn't mind it much, the mastering sounds great. Love the music. Good stuff.

And to think that I almost switched this out for one of the archived releases... One of the great benefits of a record club like VMP is that it's constantly exposing me to new artists, new sounds, new genres. I would never have picked this up on my own in a million years, but now that I own Lapsley's debut I think the VMP folks made a wise choice.For context, I have vey eclectic music tastes. My record collection has everything from extreme metal to 80s new wave to hip hop. With that said, pop is typically not on my radar. To my ears, Lapsley's album is a beautiful collection of dream pop songs with some r&b influences. I can also hear some of the gothy production touches you might hear on a Chelsea Wolfe album. It's a perfect late night listen with a glass of scotch. The lyrical content is NOT typical fair that you could expect from an artist like Taylor Swift. There's a melancholic refinement to it that's rewarding if you give the album a chance.I can understand why some people were upset with this choice. It's easy to dismiss this as teenage trash because of the age of the artist. Exposure to new styles is exactly why I joined. If I get a release I don't like, I sell it and move on. VMP, if you're listening, please don't change a thing about how you choose your artists. If I wanted something safe, I'd go to Goodwill and buy a Chicago record.

All right cool. Thanks for letting me know! I might have to see if I can swing it a time or two. Stoked about the Fugees right now though!

I'd gotten an email from VMP with info on how to do it. Might still be in beta. Basically, you send them an email asking to swap with any other in the archive. Doesn't work for curated add-ons at this time.

So how do you switch a ROTM choice out for one of the archived releases? Can you do this for the add-ons too?

Truly an amazing record from a great young and talented female artist. Beautiful voice, great production and interesting technique. Thoroughly enjoy this one - great pick VMP!

Bring on next month much better work vinyl me please

This is the first time I have been upset after listening to the VMP record of the month in 9 months of being a member. I have loved almost everything I have gotten so far (and liked what I didn't love), so I'm definitely sticking with the subscription, but this one made me question it. Also they left out my artwork this month, which judging by the picture was pretty cool. :(Good sounding pressing, but this is just not what I would call good music at all. I'm actually surprised I listened to this whole thing; I wanted to give it a chance. Some of the production is solid and catchy, and her voice is pretty, but overall it comes across as what it is: a 19 year old girl moaning about her feelings. Lot of melancholy tracks, but it's the upbeat poppy ones that really got to me and made me want to cut the record off short. Incredibly cloying at times. I could rip into this album more, but she's an easy target, so I'll stop. Like I said, this just really isn't my type of music at all, and I know this one wasn't meant for me. Hopefully this made everyone else in the club happy.I would like to see VMP stick to more classic established albums that are not available for reasonable prices or are in dire need of a quality repress/first press for the record of the month itself. The survey they sent out last year had so many good options on it that I voted for, and I haven't seen any of those yet. To force brand new pop albums like this on everyone is going to upset people (like me in this instance, and I know Torres and Blessed Feathers irked a lot of people) and lose them memberships. This would have been perfect for a member store exclusive or curated add on.You did SO GOOD last month... get back on track guys!

I don't think you understand the importance of the star ratings on Discogs at all. You say the pressing is great, but you don't like the music. Okay, wonderful, there's a site called Amazon where you can complain about the music if you'd like. Most people rely on the ratings here to determine the QUALITY OF THE PRESSING. Giving this '3 stars' is unfair, and inaccurate.

Ooo what are these forums you speak of... I must check out. Thanks for the intel. And yeah probably a good point about the pipeline of releases.No worries at all, I love a good spirited debate!

Gossiper, I feel like you ignored the praise I heaped on the club in my comment. Take it easy there. I just wanted to voice my opinion that I didn't care for this month's release, was upset I didn't get my art, and am getting a little butthurt that none of the survey options have come yet haha.You really think Big Bill was garbage?! I wouldn't even call this one "garbage" and its far and away my least favorite so far. Sounds like your mind could use some opening. I love getting albums I haven't heard before and a variety of genres; I just don't care for this release. Four Tet and Nils were amazing electronic selections, and this one is just not to me (and several reviews I have seen since I posted this; I think Pitchfork nailed it). Being let down by their ROTM selection actually kinda shocked me because it hasn't happened before and I have a very open mind. I don't think it's silly to think that I will love everything they release. I like just about every type of music. I'm just not sure what they see in this album to think it's so great that it deserves ROTM and that everyone MUST get this. I think they have just hopped on the hype train her initial EP (which is better btw) generated.When I said established classic releases, I really meant things that aren't available anywhere these days and are in high demand, specifically what was on the survey list haha. Not specifically old albums like Bill's. That's cool that you and your friends belong to the club to get new pop music and I'm glad you and plenty of others liked this, but I still think this type of stuff works better in the member store. They didn't make Garden of Delete or Twigs new EP the record of the month (both of which deserved it way more if you want to go the exposing people to new, great, exciting and different music route). If they want to turn us onto Lapsley, send us a link to her SoundCloud in the standard and give it a hard sell like they do with plenty of other new music. Then if you love it, hey it's right here in the member store! It just works better that way for new releases. I prefer them going after harder to find stuff and genre defining albums that people truly need to hear like they have been for ROTM. Like now I know about Nils & Big Bill! Long Way Home is an XL album with a huge release and promotion that I can buy in any record store or on any vinyl site if I like. You make a good point about it typically only being a few months that they do a brand new release, and I can personally totally get down with that as long as the music is groundbreaking and something flying under the radar that isn't getting attention. When it's not, I'm going to gripe like I did here.Also, I'm not getting your point about the ROTM not being forced on us. There's no opt out option for a month where you don't like the pick and you get a refund for the month. You pay your annual fee and they choose what records you get. Hence, them forcing 12 albums on you that you are clueless about is kinda the whole point. The member store albums are not forced on you, but the ROTM is once you have paid. You didn't pick them, but you paid for them and you now have them. And I usually love what they choose for my money to go towards, just not this time.Again, I am still a huge fan of the club. They usually kill it for me, and I think they can do better. Especially by giving me my art haha. Agree to disagree!

That was not Torres' debut album. It was her second album and everyone on the VMP staff was a big fan of hers and loved the album. They don't have to "err on the side of what people are familiar with" because a lot of people join this club to discover new music/artists/an appreciation for different genres, so sticking to "what people are familiar with" would be BORING.

I've been a member since May last year and try to keep an open mind when it comes to the releases. They have done exceptional (Four Tet, Big Bill, Nils Frahm) and some have been a slight miss like this one. The survey last year had a lot of good stuff on it, (but where are any of those titles?) and I like that they try to mix it up a lot but you have to err on the side of what people are familiar with versus how much they want to discover something. Isn't this month's release the artist's first ever release? Same with Torres. You have freshman albums from the likes of Wilco and Nada Surf as well, but those have been out for years from now-established artists. I don't know, from what I've heard this is the best record of the month club out there right now so I believe I will stick it out.

No one is forcing anything on you though. Your membership is optional and by signing up for a club that sends a variety of albums from all different genres, eras, etc., you are silly to think you're going to like everything. Also, you claim that "forc[ing] brand new pop albums" is going to cost them memberships, but I and a bunch of people I know who are also members would definitely unsubscribe if they only pressed "classic established albums" that someone who liked the Bill Broozy album would approve of. No single pick will please everyone so prepare to be let down every once in a while. That is why VMP gives people a VARIETY of picks so they can encapsulate a lot of different genres and please many different people each month.Also, you and someone below act like we get new albums all of the time when we get like 2-3 out of 12 - they're hardly FORCING them down your throats. If you're looking for a record club that exclusively presses pre-1970's garbage, keep looking or start one yourself.

I agree as well. But the album seems to have been well-received by other VMP members in the Facebook listening group I'm part of. I realize a curated collection won't match my tastes 100% of the time, and this is the first time since I've been a member where I just haven't cared for an album at all. I'm sure next month will improve again.

I 100% agree with this. I've said many times, VMP needs to stop shoving new material down our throats as Monthly selections. If they wanna "break" new music, release them as store exclusives. Torres was garbage. Blessed Feathers slightly better but stacked against the likes of Madvillain or last month's Folkway offering, it's like comparing apples and dog food. Why can't they consistently hit these marks given the sheer pool of amazingness? The real question is, when are they going to release a remastered exclusive of Shadow's Entroducing....??? (that’s my only want now that they put it in their survey) ;-)

Anyone getting surface noise on this pressing? Detecting some surface noise with and without headphones. I may give it a more thorough cleaning to be sure, beyond the usual carbon brush.

Same here. The surface noise reminds me a bit of the Torres pressing, though not as pronounced during the quieter parts.

Yes. Same here. Frustrating background popping. Cleaning did not help.

There's non-fill on mine, causes brief zipping sounds. A cleaning didn't help beyond removing a few pops.

My copy came with a test pressing of two tracks from the album... one on A side and the other on B side. Anyone else get one?

You mean the secret 7"? Got it,too. Go to the forum to check it out.
