Thursday – A City By The Light Divided

Finally, every Thursday album has been pressed on vinyl. It was a long time coming, but A City By The Light Divided, the last hold out, was given the green light. The album was pressed as a double LP limited to 1,000 copies pressed on red/white/black swirl. The records come housed in a gatefold jacket and includes an insert. Many people seem to love the color, but I guess I’m in the minority thinking it is pretty ugly. There is just too much going on with three color swirls, especially this one. When all the colors mix you get some weird shades or an unintended ugly color because they all blend into one. On paper the colors and scheme chosen are the right choice, but the way the records came out leaves a lot to be desired in my opinion.

The record was exclusively sold by Hot Topic, it was NOT released by Hot Topic as quite a few people tend to believe. Hot Topic is not a label (at least not yet), and as such A City By The Light Divided was released both on vinyl and every other format by Island/Universal.
