Take offence-Under the same shadow 12"






























I know some of my blogger friends really hate 10" records. Personally I don't mind them, I think one sided records are worst especially 12" ones. I don't care if it has etching on it or not (which this one doesn't), I still feel cheated. Anyway since this is Take offence I had to buy this and since I'm a geek I had to get all 3 colours. I first heard Take offence last year by accident really when I saw them playing with Fire and Ice and some other bands. They absolutely blew me away and easily wiped the floor with all the other bands on the bill. I picked their up their album at the show and constantly listened to it for months and still do (hell I even had it on my I pod last night while travelling to a show). This new 12" has four tracks and they seem to be going more down the Suicidal tendencies sounding route. Since ST are one of my all time favourite bands I have no objection to that. The back of the sleeve has a similar layout design to that of the back of the No mercy album. Coincidence? I doubt it. Anyway I can see this getting a lot of play over the next month or so.

I really felt cheated on this one too. If they would have had a nice logo on the blank side I would have felt much better about this, but I just don't understand why not just put this on a 7"?

yeah it never stops us buying these things though. Thankfully the music rules so that's the main thing but what with postage (and buying multiple copies) it turned out to be a pricey four songs

Putting 4 songs on a 7" at 33rpm decreases the sound quality! I guess that's the reason they used a 12"... A 10" is also not such a handy format.

@flanders this is true but honestly I would not have minded lower quality recordings on a 7" at a cheaper price, since it came with a digital download card with the high quality recordings. I pre ordered it before it went on sale so I think it was $10 or $12, plus their obscene shipping prices to Cali so yeah it was a very pricey 4 songs. I think if anything I'm just more peeved that they didn't have a design on the blank side.. that "TO Zone" logo would have been perfect on there. Oh well, maybe on the 2nd pressing? Regardless, I do really enjoy these 4 songs!
