+44 – When Your Heart Stops Beating (1st Press)

Posted: June 13, 2011 in Vinyl

Something that was in the works for a while, Interscope finally gave the go ahead to press +44’s debut and lone album to be pressed on vinyl. It was exclusively sold through Hot Topic and was released a few weeks ago. There were 2,000 copies pressed on baby blue with white swirl, which matches the artwork pretty close to perfect. Personally I think it would have looked better with black center labels on both sides to lend a bit of contrast instead of white labels in a sea of white.

The sound quality on this is not the greatest, especially considering the first few second of the first track are cut off. But it’s still better than listening to the CD or MP3 version. The price point on this is also higher than it should be, $19.99 for a single LP in a gatefold jacket. When you take into account Blink-182’s The Mark Tom And Travis Show was pressed as a double LP in a gatefold LP with about a dozen more tracks and cost $19.99, the price of When Your Heart Stops Beating looks even higher.
