Just the vinyl is 30$ are you out of your fucking mind?!

This. I can only imagine it's to make the box set not seem like it's a huge rip-off.

eh, I can understand why people are bummed. There is nothing really special about this pressing to validate spending close to 40 bucks on it. It doesn't appear to be 180 gram and the black variant is most likely not limited. There's no cool variant or litho or anything to really justify it. I'm not gonna get up in arms about it because that's just how it is for the majority of majors and what they price something. I mean, I spent 23 bucks total on the Converge 2xLP and that was a limited variant, nice weight to the record, foil cover, beautiful gatefold, etc. I mean, you know how it is. P+P puts out a great product with its record releases for probably more than half the price of this Paramore vinyl. haha

I'm guessing it's because FBR is owned by Warner, who is synonymous with charging a ton for plain vinyl. Ridiculous, but if it sells then good for them.
