|Team Light vs. Team Dark|
With blind buys, I usually have an idea of what to expect before I make a purchase because I've done my research beforehand; and while that wasn't the case here, I'm nonetheless glad I took the plunge. Only after my purchases did I finally make an effort to look up Light Bearer, but my findings were still inconclusive, other than the fact that the music supposedly felt "atmospheric" in nature. As we all know, that can literally mean anything in this day and age, but I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best, as any potential fan would.
Silver Tongue's presentation is more or less the same, aside from a few extras--two pieces of paper displaying additional artwork. Now, I don't know about you, but that's another reason to collect vinyl. For instance, with a CD, you aren't going to come across that often, and even if you do, it's going to be scaled down to a much smaller size and less "viewable," if you know what I'm saying. In other words, I can frame Silver Tongue's artwork, put it on the wall, and gaze at it, which would look silly with anything CD-case-sized.
If you couldn't tell by now, Laspus and Silver Tongue are great buys, if you have the patience to find them. As far as I know, Laspus is entirely sold out, and Silver Tongue is nearly there. Needless to say, I'm glad I secured my copies when I did.
