i'll still take it thank you.
As would I. But then there will always be people like SinkNazi who will complain about the quality, while also thinking that a label can somehow release 23 albums without it costing them any money to do so.
You guys all seem Hell-bent on blaming Ipecac for your not being happy with what you got. All I’m suggesting is that the shoddy execution of these releases might not be their fault. I didn’t think that would be such a tough pill to swallow.
SinkNazi is clever...I like that....
My statement about cost was under the understanding that effectively Omar went "here release this" and that is what they did and really the costs of production were on Omar and not on Ipecac. If that is wrong, that I'll happily admit that.
My point still stands though. This was bungled in a lot of ways and executed poorly. The first 12 albums were handled actually pretty well, but round 2 was a pretty big disaster that kept compounding. They should have waited until they had all the albums in hand or most because clearly they didn't and it just made things increasingly scattershot and erratic. I'd say it is even worse if there was money on the line because they really should have put in a greater effort to promote this stuff and get sales.
Am I happy we got 23 Omar albums? Fuck yea, and most of them are solid listens.
Do I think this was handled well? Absolutely not.
Both can be true and I can still appreciate Ipecac for doing this run of releases, but also scratch my head at how it was managed.
