That's the good news for all of the people who were interested in buying it on that format- as it was released in January.

What's the bad news? Well..here it is: It's kind of expensive. It will set you back $100.00. The Deluxe Edition costs almost $150.00.

As a longtime collector of new releases on vinyl, I think this is the most expensive vinyl release ever made.

Your thoughts on this? Is the price too much for this record?

A customer says:
I've went over $100 plenty of times for CD's AND vinyls. But for Watch The Throne? Pssh. I'll pass. And believe me, that's nowhere near the most expensive vinyl record. Beatles collectors will pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for the alternate cover pressing of Sgt Pepper's with the record execs on it instead of the band (less than 100 copies in existence) or the rainbow vinyl pressing of Love Songs (as far as I know, literally one-of-a-kind). So... yeah.

Ian, I said that it's the most expensive for new releases in this day and age. The closest I got as far as spending that much on vinyl was Nine Inch Nails' "Year Zero" ($45.00) and Kanye West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" ($35.00).

Would I get "Watch The Throne" now? I'll settle for the CD...I'm cool, LOL!
