The All-American Rejects – Kids In The Street (Regular & Deluxe Versions)

The All-American Rejects’ latest album, Kids In The Street, received two different vinyl versions. One is a four LP box set, with each record being die-cut. They are cut in the shape of people/characters found in the album artwork and packaging, with the heads and arms/hands being die-cut. The box set also includes a mask and a 10-page lyric booklet. When laid out in order te four dust sleeves make on larger image. One side of the sleeves line up to form the photo of the band that is on the insert of the standard LP pressing and the other side is each character found on their respective picture discs. This set costs $100 before shipping and is limited to only 500 copies. Despite the price, the set still managed to sell through more than 3/4 of the 500 copies. Eventually copies started popping up on ebay for half that price, all sold by one seller, which is where I snagged one.

There is also a standard single LP version. It was pressed on translucent red with green circles. I’m sure this color/pattern of vinyl has an actual name, as I’ve seen a few records with the same pattern, but it escapes me at the moment. The green circles are only pressed on the b-side of the record but can be seen on the a-side because of the translucency, albeit faintly. Pressing info was never released, as it probably never will because the record was released by a major label.
