Spirit World Field Guide

LP (Item 116709) Rhymesayers, 2020 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

One of the most sonically intense albums to date from Aesop Rock – a set that matches his ever-sharp rhymes with the sorts of musical settings that really live up to the spirit of the title! The vocals come on with this really crispy sort of edge – partly the production, partly the presentation – with the words exploding alongside all these spare, but eerie musical elements – off-tuned keyboards at one moment, weird guitar at another, layered by never too deeply – so that there's a lean vibe overall that really matches the straightforward presentation of the lyrics. Titles include "Button Masher", "Dog At The Door", "Boot Soup", "Coveralls", "The Four Winds", "Marble Cake", "Fixed & Dilated", and "Sleeper Car".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Clear vinyl pressing. Includes the printed inner sleeves, complete sticker sheet, and download card.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
