    Dem ****ing hipsters! Dem be damned! Oh wait, now it's one of the most famous rock bands of the last 10 or 15 years, therefore they can't be labeled as "hipster garbage" by our so beloved UG trolls.
    It's for "Hipsters" because apparently collecting vinyl is only for them. I'm going to probably get the hot topic variant of this release which will complete my collection of Deftones vinyl, still waiting for my Covers album to come in the mail soon.
    Hipsters don't collect vinyls. People who are into pure sound of a record and hearing them in a different light that something digitally produced and distributed, are the people who collect vinyls. And the best point of all, some stuff just sounds ways better on vinyl.
    Why the hell do we keep using that word to describe people with different preferences than us?
    This sucks, I just bought the most boring version 2 days ago because nothing else was announced. Also it costs a fortune to get the other ones to Europe.
