This is the second of three Group Sounds reissues that my wife got me for Christmas. I'm pretty fortunate that she doesn't mind stoking the fire of this collection that has rapidly taken over most rooms in our place. All I can say is that I'm a lucky, lucky guy.
I like this variant better than the one from last week. Though splatter vinyl isn't my favorite of vinyl colors, at least this one takes some colors from the actual artwork to use. I'm not entirely sure why last week's had blue splatter. Sure there's a bit of blue on the insert, but it just seemed a bit out of place. Though let's be honest, the best variant of this LP was the record store day variant on white vinyl with yellow splatter from a few years ago. That one made the most sense anyway.
No matter how you slice it, that doesn't change the fact that this is one of the all time best Rocket records. Maybe most people don't need so many copies of the same record, but I for whatever reason, I do. I have one more version of this album that I'll post next week, then it's on to Live From Camp X-Ray.
