To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'm 68. Quite frankly there is something about these young whipersnappers that appeals to my inner whatever. Not all their works are likeable. Sometimes just one on an album or just a few. But I like the kick they give.
First things first: I like the album (although is not my fav from the band), so this negative review is on the state of the item i received, not the quality of MUSE or their music. Since is a recurring problem with vinyls from MUSE, I had to report it.
The packaging by Amazon and vinyl main cover arrived in perfect condition, not a bump or a scratch. So kudos to Amazon for that.
However, after unpacking it and reaching for the vinyl, I noticed that the inner sleeve (the vinyl folder with artwork and lyrics) was tore on all the sides (it's like the vinyl itself cut through it). No big deal, I asked for a replacement.
HOWEVER, the replacement too had the same issue. Funny enough, I had the same experience with Origin of Symmetry. Same exact issue. And the replacement showed the same damage. 6 vinyls out of 6 (as Origin of Symmetry has double disc).
I really think MUSE vinyl factory should really check on the quality of their processes! I returned everything, as I want my collection to be in mint condition, and this damage is unacceptable. Therefore, only 1 star.
Great band. Loads of superb songs on here. Good quality recording with crisp treble and a clear full bass. Good price and speedy delivery. I am very pleased! My daughters have fallen in love with it too!
