I really doubt it. Still disappointed at how the whole ipecac releases were handled, given what potential there was.
Iâ€™m surprised youâ€™re surprised. Itâ€™s happened several times before. Things are promised and never happen.
I mean, we did get 23 out of 24 digital releases, and we were originally led to believe there would only be 12. So Iâ€™d say that was pretty successful. I understand being disappointed about not getting any vinyl, but if youâ€™re still holding out for that at this point, I donâ€™t know what to tell you. Thatâ€™s just not where anyoneâ€™s (Omar or Ipecac) focus is right now.
No no guys, that's not what I meant. Sorry for my english. Of course I'm immensely glad for those 23 releases, that's not something I would have dared to wish before it happened.
And I'm not that much of a vinyl guy, so that's not my point either.
It's just... look, an artist releases 23 albums over the course of a year. That kind of stuff might not occur that often, it's huge ! So ok, maybe only a few hundreds of fans were interested in that. Which means the label, the artist, sort of do that for the fans. As a fan, what do I expect ? music of course, that's why I'm here, but also infos, and at least credits, lyrics... ! Like, if each album had a few lines written by Omar to describe when he created the album, with who, in which context, and why the fuck didn't he just remastered the whole USM album. Just to show he cared a little bit. That much would have been enough to me.
At one point in the release serie, it felt like "here's your Omar pill" you know, a bit too much of a consumption society thing (which pill denitely made that year easier to live, for sure).
With better promo, some interviews maybe, a bit of a logic in the order of the releases and a crowdfunding thing to get my cds box set, the whole Ipecac release would have been perfect
Here we got three videoclips at the begining which was very exciting, but it quickly stopped and turned into an automatic delivery service, kinda soul less.
I must specify that I'm still listening to the compilation CDs I created out of those releases most of the time I spent in my car. So yeah, definitely glad the whole thing happened anyway.
