  • Winasana
This red translucent is super cool. The vinyls sounds perfect except DARE. But I was able to fix it as it seemed there was just a lot of dust on that track. Other than that the vinyl is great.
  • Cktiell
It's available on Vinyl Me, Please store again for $40. but, if you resubscribe, you can swap for it and get it for whatever the monthly price is.
  • Fordrelis
Yep, they repress sometimes, mf doom just got a repress too, fiona apple tidal repress is coming soon
  • Mamuro
I wonder why it's available again all the sudden? VMP doesn't repress do they?
  • Yozshubei
I was lucky to get this on VMP while supplies lasted. The pressing is phenomenal, the red vinyl is gorgeous, the extras is dope, and I’m really just content to have it in my collection...And no issues at all.
  • Eseve
A little noisier than most Gorillaz records usually are, but barely. Still the brilliant quality that we can expect from Parlophone.
  • Gaxaisvem
Not only has this been reissued on black vinyl through parlophone but the red vinyl version is available again from vinylmeplease for 29 dollars.
  • Daron
It's hilarious, how VMP 'limits' their records, We see over 6K owneres of this records registered here, so at least 20K copies has been made. Anyway, I shuld had been pacient and wait for regular black edition, but I wanted it asap so I signed for VMP then
  • Vinainl
UPDATE: Sold out again from VMP Store as of Jan 19, 2018.Pretty perfect pressing. Every track sounds full while leaving a lot of separation between different sounds. It's mastered loud and the low end even louder and that's exactly how an album like this should sound. Virtually no surface noise between tracks and definitely none during tracks. The translucent red records look even sexier in person than they do in pictures.The sleeve is also pretty perfect. A gorgeous heavyweight matte gatefold jacket with individual single artwork for all 15 tracks inside. Each record is housed in a picture sleeve with one member of the band in profile on each side. If I have one complaint, it's that the gatefold pockets are very tight, so getting everything in and out takes a bit longer than it should.I know VMP had a bunch of pressing issues with this, but now that they're all sorted out, this is a must own. I'm honestly shocked the label hasn't done a black pressing to release wide yet. Odd for their most popular album to be the only one not widely available on vinyl.
  • Taun
Ordered my copy in mid-late December from VMP, and just received it. Sound quality is great, and there are no discernible errors. All tracks play without skips or any sign of a locked groove on my Technics 1200 MK5.
  • Windforge
This album sounds incredible. Probably the best bass on any album I own.
  • Kaim
Anyone has at least 2 or 3 skips on "Dare" ? pretty annoying as the rest sounds GREAT (I have the repress not the original mispress), thanks...
  • Vut
Did you end up choosing anything as of yet or?
  • Fordredor
These are some of the best videos I have seen comparing different price ranged tables to eachother. Dont worry too much about what you choose, like I said Im sure you will enjoy almost whatever it is. But give these a look, it might give some pointers!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_LzV45Ha30&thttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuuOgT0XBK0&t
  • Loni
Thanks a lot, I will definitely reconsider my future purchase and look at the brands you recommend !
  • Mr_Mole
Ah I see, Im sure you would be happy with it, but just to go over some pros and cons I see know. Depending on what type of music enthusiast and consumer you are you may favor different options relatively speaking. In case you are not aware these are the DJ tables pioneered (no pun intended) by Technics. Other brands like Audio Technica who sell the AT LP120 and 60 which you have, also mimic this style. But the absolute holy grail of these would be the Technics SL 1200 series. At a price similar to the PLX 500 you can get a much better deck in almost every area, the only problem being that they can only be bought used. Finding one in your area might or might not be difficult but buying online is an option, that is if you feel comfortable with it. There is a reason why DJs seek out these decks to this day. But if you dont feel comfortable with shipping and used goods then stick with local.This leads into my next point. Do you see yourself using a lot of the features these DJ tables offer? If you do then great, it might be near perfect for you. Personally I just want to listen to music and because of that would look towards brands that focus on that type of consumer base. You might look at other tables and think they have less features and must be worse options, but its really simple economic budget theory. If you have 300$ to spend manufacturing something the less complicated it is the more money you can spend making sure the parts perform better.Brands like Pro-ject and especially Rega adopt the philosophy of making a simple, plug and play, yet fantastically performing tables. You wont get any strobe lights, quartz locks, automatic mechanisms etc, but you will get a better player for your money.
  • Rainbearer
Thanks, very informative answer ! I have seen a Pioneer PLX-500 in a shop here that is not too expensive for my budget, do you think it's decent ?
  • Humin
Hi, thanks for the speedy reply ! First of all I must admit I don't have an audiophile deck at all, I'm using an Audio-Technica AT-LP 60 with I believe an upgraded AT cartridge tho (was a special offer...), sound is provided by my Bose Wave (I know it's not ideal at all but does the job...). But the point is that I don't have skips on any records that aren't supposed to skip (I always look here if I have a skipping record and most of the time users do report it). I have cleaned the cartridge just before playing it, and it went thru sides A, B and C perfectly until I flipped to side D and then 2 skips on the first half of Dare, and no more after thanks god ! I have checked also the 2 mispress and mine is definitly not one of these not having any of the issues described and I received it pretty recently from VMP anyway (I guess I was one of the last customer to be able to grab one...). I guess I can try to clean the record and give it another go...And yes I plan to change my turntable soonish :)
  • Adoranin
What equipment do you have, either its a problem with your setup or its a miss pressed vinyl version. There are 2 miss presses versions of this currently on Discogs
  • crazy mashine
i just got this in the mail, and it sounds like garbage. massive distortion on every single track
  • Bys
Given the high prices, I was tempted to sell this reissue until I listened to it. Pressing sound EXCELLENT, the locked groove issue seems to have been fixed, and great packaging.
  • Xirmiu
I just got my copy in the mail yesterday (I swapped). Fortunately, my copy doesn't have any audio issues.
  • Modifyn
Is your 45 RPM or 33 1/3? Mine showed up this weekend and isn't half speed mastered.
  • Siralune
the VMP pressing has a major defect. The last 3 songs on the album are a contiguous piece of music without any gaps. For some unknown reason this pressing has gaps between the songs that ruins the song cycle for the listener.
  • Joony
I'm considering ordering more copies of it just because of the value or for something to trade off
  • elegant stranger
still fetches $100 mint condition and or unopened with all the goodies.
  • Bralore
Well, it isn't just side four. There's supposed to be transitions between Dirty Harry and Fell Good Inc., and I think others as well. However, VMP staff have commented on this on the member forum; apparently the masters the band released had the gaps, and there's not much VMP can do about that.
  • Kelerius
Sound quality is surprisingly better than the digital version. Bass is very strong.The copy I got had the locked groove defect on Side C during All Alone's rap part, but after looking up online for fixes I managed to fix it myself by carefully pushing the needle more into the vinyl during the locked groove part (I do not recommend this!). Only had to do this once and now it plays regularly. Thankfully neither my needle nor record got damaged, however I will have to see in the long run.
  • Lynnak
This pressing sounds incredible. I can't understand the people who think otherwise.
  • Minha
I'm not seeing that on any of the songs on the copy I ripped. Feel Good Inc. and Dirty Harry both have non-clipped looking drums.
  • Siramath
They limited the drums (it's "brickwalled" -> https://www.reddit.com/r/gorillaz/comments/65qxja/the_vmp_demon_days_pressing_has_limiting_on_the/) and I really miss the fade from Dirty Harry to Feel Good Inc. Despite that it's brilliant!
  • Windworker
A greatly mastered and pressed record made with a lot of care. At first I was worried the bass might be too strong. But when Feel Good Inc started playing it was like hearing it again for the first time, such chills. Design wise its stylistic and fresh looking. The classic Gorillaz artwork is here displayed in all elements. If anyone is worried that it might sound worse because of its red coloring you can sleep well knowing from me that there is absolutely nothing worse about it. Remember that black is also a coloring process and that clear is vinyls original form. Plus it looks gorgeous this way.Equipment used:Rega RP1 with Rega Carbon cartridgeCyrus 2 AmplifierSystem Fidelity SF-3050 tower speakersCustom made HQ speaker cables
  • Funny duck
You are correct. There's absolutely no proof that colored vinyl is worse or somehow inferior to black vinyl. It's all about the quality of the vinyl itself. Anybody who thinks this is a fucking moron and probably isn't a serious record collector.
  • Malakelv
No, it is not! Probably you mean picture discs or lathe cutted colored vinyls. Otherwise, colored, multicolored or splattered does not matter - each of these can be better than black ones...
  • Shakanos
Trumpduck Colored vinyl will always sound inferior to black and clear vinyl. Black vinyl does not lose anywhere near the sound quality or soundstage that gimmicky colored vinyl robs of the music. As I understand it its mostly about the quality of the vinyl itself. Since black is also a coloration from its original form I dont see why its better than any other color. Unless you perhaps have a study on that.
  • Bluecliff
The bass on this pressing absolutely knocks. I could not be happier with this.
  • Kieel
Am I the only one disappointed with this repress? I have the original 2005 pressing as well and it is definitely superior. This new pressing has several spots where the EQ seems off, with some vocals being overly loud and others quiet. I've also noticed the transitions between songs is way off. There's a long break when they should seque into each other. Most obvious examples of this are Dirty Harry -> Feel Good Inc. and Don't Get Lost in Heaven -> Demon Days. One of my favorite albums ever, so I apologize for being nitpicky.
  • Daiktilar
yeah i would say this has a lot of sibilance on most of the tracks...
  • Yllk
woohokie Am I the only one disappointed with this repress? I have the original 2005 pressing as well and it is definitely superior. This new pressing has several spots where the EQ seems off, with some vocals being overly loud and others quiet. I've also noticed the transitions between songs is way off. There's a long break when they should seque into each other. Most obvious examples of this are Dirty Harry -> Feel Good Inc. and Don't Get Lost in Heaven -> Demon Days. One of my favorite albums ever, so I apologize for being nitpicky. Yeah, im a but bummed about that. The fact I didn't have to pay over one hundred bucks for it kind of makes it okay. Still hunting for the original though.
  • Kann
I agree about the transitions. When I heard the pause between Dirty Harry and Feel Good Inc., my heart dropped. I continued listening hoping that it wouldn't happen between Don't Get Lost in Heaven and Demon days, but it sure did happen and it sure did make me sad.
  • Flarik
I agree with Wohookie. The EQ balance is off on this pressing. Hyped bass in particular. Not terrible, on the other hand; this pressing is great for vinyl addicts who could otherwise not get the 2005 pressing. By the way, no looping on 'All Alone' or anywhere on side c/d for me using both Nagaoka MP150 and MP200 after cleaning using solution and brush. My be a burr issue. Oh, also, the packaging is not as high quality as the original (talk about nitpicking). And, finally, in my experience, there is more surface noise than my original pressing. Just a few personal impressions based upon my setup. YMMV.
  • Naktilar
I too am honestly very disappointed in the lack of transitions between those songs as well. Apparently the remaster went through 4 different groups for approval including Damon Albarn himself before getting repressed. It is a little nitpicky but still understandable criticism since (while i don't own an original vinyl pressing anymore but I do have an original CD from 2005) the way the songs transition into each other is fantastic and seamless.
  • Wrathshaper
This release has been highly anticipated by vinyl lovers and it delivers on the promise. The pressing is flawless, quiet and flat, the SQ is excellent, not hot nor bass heavy as some have claimed. No issues with tracking or locked grooves etc, it is a dynamic record though so poorly setup TT's may have issues (or Crossley's ;) It is all I had hoped for.
  • Dreladred
Got my VMP-copy today. Perfect pressing, no skipping problems. Also the half-speed mastering was done very well - the music sounds phenomenal! My only complaint is that the cover and jacket came a bit messed up inside the package, but oh well.
  • Arlelond
So I got my copy in the mail a few days back and while initially I was really happy to finally have this amazing album back in my collection. Upon listening to it I ran into a huge problem. On All Alone the first sentence in the first rap verse loops infinitely. I sent an email to VMP and fortunately they where kind enough to send me a new a copy of the record but before I got a response I went on subreddits and forums talking about this release and apparently this reissue is ripe with problems. The 2 major problems i seem to come across being excessive surface noise on side C & D and the center labels being pressed incorrectly. While I'm fortunate enough to be given a new copy from VMP, if you're buying from Discogs or Ebay sellers, know that there is a very slight chance that your record may be a bad pressing. Unless you just have to have it mint, try and buy the record already open and pre-played so your seller can ensure you of the quality of the record. Good luck and happy hunting.
  • Morlurne
Already contacted them a few days back and I'll be getting my new copy by early next week. Guess I'm just framing my extra copy.
  • Goltikree
Mine plays back in same spot. Did you notify vmp? I did and have another copy on the way. They will have you send vid proof.
  • Xangeo
Just received mine. The vinyl itself is perfect. No skipping, the labels are on point.The jacket has an odd size indeed, but no seem splits or such. I love it even more after listening to the crappy bootleg I have for comparison! New favorite vinyl!
  • Katishi
Sounds amazing, but yeah. As typical with VMP the jacket is too small/sleeves too big. The seams came split. Which is fine. I'm not selling it or anything, but yeesh. Again: sounds great.
  • Zulkigis
Man. What a pressing. The bass is perfect!!!
  • Gela
Incredible pressing of an equally incredible album. The best quality version of the album to date.
  • Āłł_Ÿøūrš
I have given this new reissue two listens now, so I think I have my notes together on it. I am over the moon to finally have a great sounding copy of this album that I have held dear for a good chunk of my life. I'll break my thoughts about the release down into good and bad:The Good: Basically everything important. The sound quality is amazing on my setup. They absolutely nailed this pressing. No skipping and extremely little surface noise. The clear red wax is good looking, and there were zero issues with sloppy labeling on my copy like I have seen elsewhere. The discs are nice and thick. This should be a great version for me to listen to for years to come.The Bad: These are mainly minor issues, but there are several details about the packaging of this reissue that aren't great to me. I have seen some extremely well done packaging jobs, and this just isn't one. I wanted this album to get a glorious reissue, and from all the hype material I had read from VMP, it sounded like this would deliver. Unfortunately, they didn't wow me here, and they actually dropped a couple pretty big balls, one being WHY IS THE JACKET TOO SMALL?! This is an issue VMP seems to struggle with on repeated ROTMs for some odd reason, when I see it very rarely elsewhere. Jacket size seems like it would be something so easy to get right, and a roomy jacket is necessary if you want to keep the discs in static-free sleeves. Once again with a VMP ROTM release, the sleeves poke out of the jacket on my copy and simply don't fit right. Another thing that really bugs me here are the inserted breaks between tracks that my CD version never had. Several tracks use continued sounds from the previous track in their start, and this ruins that seemless transition from one song to the next. Moving past the main issues and onto more nitpicky stuff, the printed inner sleeves with band member faces on them are very cool, but the artwork for each face is turned the wrong way. It throws me off every time putting the sleeves back into the jacket that the faces aren't turned like on the album cover. These printed sleeves also contain a ton of paper dust that my discs came out with and surely will collect more of because I have no choice but to keep storing them in these sleeves, since they are all that will fit (sortof) in the jacket. Finally, I love the little sticker add-in, but was a bit disappointed to not get any inserts with additional behind-the-scenes material, recording session pictures, etc. (really any artwork or material that wasn't in the original CD release) that you see with a lot of reissues of great albums. Overall, I am very happy with this release because they nailed the music, which is obviously most important. I'm just a bit disappointed they didn't seem to go the extra mile on the packaging (or at least get the freaking jacket size right). I had lofty expectations after listening to and reading all of VMP's excitement about reissuing this record. Still an amazing choice of ROTM and very well executed audio. Keep up the good work guys!

My copy sounds great and did not come with paper shreds on the records or skip while playing All Alone. Guess it's just a roll of the dice. Overall, very happy with this release and stoked to finally be able to cross this white whale off my list.
  • Sarin
My copy has an endless skip during "All Alone". Anyone else with this issue?
  • Acrobat
I have the exact same problem with my copy too, and I e-mailed the VMP team yesterday and received an automated message so far. My hopes are that they'll expedite this problem the same way they did for their J. Dilla | Donuts March 2015 release, but I'm worried that since it's only a couple hundred records compromised they may or may not. My experiences with the VMP team's customer service has been great so for - so i'm keeping my fingers crossed for some good news.
  • Fani
I have the same problem. I have an endless skip in the beginning of dare, too. :(
  • Gavikelv
I have this skip as well, I am sending them an email today.
  • Brariel
Technics SL-1700. I've tried thoroughly cleaning the record and adjusting the counterweight, still skipping.
  • Perdana
There have been a few complaints about this, present estimate is 500-1000 records potentially affected. May I ask what turntable you're playing it on?
  • Livina
This is a fantastic pressing. Sounds super clear. No defects.
  • Brakora
There is apparently a lot of defects with this release so be careful if you don't open it right away.
  • Oreavi
I mean they aren't all going to have issues but a lot of people are noticing damage and other defects. I am glad your copy is fine but that doesn't mean it isn't a problem.
  • Laizel
Mine is perfect. Not sure what you're talking about here.
  • Risa
Understatement. Mine came with sharpie on one of the side labels, a giant scratch on side C, and one of the sleeves ripped open. Yay...

I've received this today and I am very satisfied with this edition of the record! I don't have an original vinyl press to compare this one to, but I have listened to this record on and on for many years to be able to tell the differences within this copy. For instance, all the tracks all have a few seconds gap after they end. That means the kids' laughs in Dirty Harry and the starting laugh in Feel Good Inc are not together. This doesn't really bother me, but it's worth noting as it is obviously apparent in every single track. It's worthy to take into account however that this is actually apparent on the digital version of this album in every streaming platform. As far as quality, this pressing really lives up to the hype. Very loud and crisp. The bass is very heavy and you can definitely notice its effect on "Kids With Guns", "Dirty Harry", and "Fire Coming Out of a Monkey's Head", the latter really sounding so much better with the louder bass. If there's anything that does sound iffy at times it would be the vocals, with some of the choir vocals on the last two tracks sounding really distorted. That is really my only real complaint about this pressing, but given how everything else sounds so good, it doesn't matter that much in the end.Really glad that Vinyl Me, Please was able to score a hyped-up release like this one. Been a member for less than a year now, but they surprise (in a good way!) with every new month.

Just received this and the special edition of In Rainbows today. This pressing is phenomenal, don't know if its worth $150, but still a very quiet noise floor with no pops or cracks.
  • Steel balls
The special edition of In Rainbows is worth $150 tho! :) One of my favorites in my collection
  • Brick my own
Just listened to my copy and it sounds fantastic. I have to agree with the others though: there was a lot of paper residue on both LPs when I first opened. I cleaned them both and they both sound great. Also as was mentioned, the slots to slide the inner sleeves in are way too tight considering I use Mofi inner sleeves. Other than that, the pressing is great.
  • Gardall
Got my copy in my hands and I have to agree with  hundreds100. Only issue with it was that it was covered in loss, shredded paper from the factory sleeves and a lot of static build up, but other than that, amazing press. I wish I only had the original pressing to compare if this 2nd pressing surpasses the original or is on par.
  • Dori
That's nothing a wet clean wouldn't fix, so I wouldn't call it a pressing problem.
  • Jerdodov
Just got my copy in today this is the best sounding version of the album I have ever heard. I have been listening to this album for a little more than a decade and this is the best I have ever heard it. No distortion, no pops, no clicks it is perfect. I was concerned that it would be a little bass heavy like allot of electronic and hip hop albums on vinyl but it is perfect and the bass is never overpowering. It's just as good as the 45RPM pressing of Panda Bear's Person Pitch. Highly recommended and I hope everyone else who ordered is as happy as I am right now.Edit: If I were to complaining about anything would be the packaging. The plastic sleeve that Vinyl Me Please provides you is a plastic resealable sleeve similar to that of Music on Vinyl. Except unlike Music on Vinyl, Vinyl Me Please put sthe cohesive glue on the flap rather than on the sleeve itself. Meaning that many times the flap will stick onto the record as you are putting it in, meaning you can either rip the sleeve, becomes cumbersome to get in, and can leave glue residue. The Vinyl Me Please, sleeves in one incident left glue residue on the front cover of my copy of Panda Bear's Person Pitch and I ended up switching the Vinyl Me Please sleeve for a regular one, and I am likely to do the same for Demon Days. Another issue is that the slots where you put the record inside are too small. I like to use Plastic Inner sleeves instead of the paper sleeves that are provided. The inner slots are way too tight to insert both the plastic sleeves and the ones that came with the animated members printed on each side meaning I had to stick the printed sleeves in between the gatefold rather than inside the inner slot. These are not deal breakers however they are minor annoyances that I think Vinyl Me Please could address in the future. The quality of the record is what matters most and this blew me away, the remastering job is excellent and it's subtle enough that those who are really into the album will notice a slight difference. I don't have an original pressing to compare this to only the original CD copy I purchased as a kid, but this is for sure beats the CD. However, it is not worth the 200 dollars canadian people are charging right now as I am writing this. Shame on those who are selling it for that much, and I hope everyone who wanted a copy got one and there are enough of them pressed that everyone can get one for a decent price or a standard reissue is available soon.

Senior Editor of VMP has confirmed that over 25,000 copies were pressed and the amount total pressed is somewhere under 40,000 copies.Source: Gorillaz - Demon Days (April 2017 AOTM) - VMP Forums / Page 18

most signs point to Fiona Apple's Tidal (first ever pressing), but if you sign up for any plan above monthly, it comes with unlimited swaps. As a member I can assure you there is always something in the store you want, whether it be smaller run exclusive pressings, past album of the months still in stock, reissues, or new releases. Their curated selections are well thought out and diverse.
  • Mr.jeka
a lot of people had to buy the other plans to get into getting the Gorillaz album. the month to month sub was removed pretty quickly once it went live.
  • TheMoonix
Also on the forums they said they accounted for a %15 increase, so just going off 25k, a 15% increase for that would put it at 28,750. So 30k might be feasible.
  • Global Progression
Sorry for the peeps who missed out. VMP should have known this record was going to sell out. Now I wonder how many they actually pressed for the ROTM.
  • Drelahuginn
Just wondering . . . also . . .
  • Jairani
Where did you get that number from? I can't seem to find anything about it.
  • Shem

  • Vareyma
Oh boy, I already know the marketplace for this thing is gonna be a shit show.
  • FRAY
Sadly this is not a true repress, just a limited thing for a record club. Shit, Who even knows if they used the original masters
  • Felhalar
it's a cooperation between VinyMePlease and the Gorillaz.. so I would guess they have had access to the original masters ;)
  • Buge
It is a half speed remaster, done at Alchemy Mastering, and was done using the original masters. This was all confirmed by CJ on twitter. I would guess, due to the half-speed mastering, this will sound better than original pressing.

"To get this record delivered to your door we work with the artist & record label on a special-edition pressing...For newer releases (and some older releases), source audio comes from the original masters."https://vinylmeplease.groovehq.com/knowledge_base/topics/who-presses-the-records-for-vinyl-me-pleaseThey refer to it as an official repress @5:25https://soundcloud.com/user-570276375/rotm-roundtable-demon-daysAlso, you could just email them and ask.

It's a half speed remaster. That makes it a unique pressing, not a repress.
