well, the thing about those records you mention is that the store pushes them so heavily. when they got ahold of the dungeon record there was a shitstorm of activitiy. it was featured on the rack, he did an instore, every clerk and their mother recommended it (same at kims). this also went for the double record. i even bought it because of the way a clerk described it to me and the high praises it had on its note card, but alas, it wasn't how they painted it, and now it sits without being touched. the informed shoppers at this store manage to score all the burns of the more exposed records. hence the antics and mm drop.

my 2.5 cents.


i bet you're so right. i do most of my shopping online instead of going to the actual store, so i must miss all of the spin. it's so insane that the people who work there have that much control over the music that actually gets sold. i can't decide if i find that totally impressive or totally annoying.
