the almighty smack has me laughing so hard with "A-trak"... I love it when someone tries to look smart and they just trip over their own shoelaces. What an idiot.

The cost of pumping out 1000 cassettes is minimal compared to mastering and cutting the same number on vinyl. The profit margin is greater. Twiztid is in the music business and when your in business, the bottom line is very important.

Plus, cassettes are just bad ass. They are compact, fitting easily in your pocket. They can hold more music than any CD can, and they are easily re-recordable. True, there is a nostalgia factor in them that 13 year olds can not understand, but frankly, older people generally have jobs and a lot more disposable income than your average 13 year old. Plus, do you really want Twiztid to market products for an adolescent demographic? I find it annoying when PSY dumbs shit down for the young money.

I am very shrewd when buying media. The last Twiztid release I paid money for was W.I.C.K.E.D. in the great trading card/comic grab. I learned a lesson with that album and they haven't gotten a dime out of me since. They figured a way to do it, that's no small feat. Props to this, I hope to see more cassettes in the future.

That's kind of the point. Cassettes are designed to be enjoyed to the fullest. Play the whole album, it was conceived that way and is best enjoyed as a whole piece. CDs kind of ruined the culture of playing full albums by making it too convenient to skip songs. Over the years attention spans have dwindled and the culture and quality of the albums has suffered. Now we are back to a single oriented music business like they had in the 1950s. Pretty stale. Cassettes are designed to be played in their entirety. If you need to skip around, just play the CD, cassettes are probably not for you.

I want the cassette for the collection reason... Also, its got another bonus track. And exactly what guest said, ya can play it straight thru, pretty sweet. Honestly, I might not even open it, depends if that bonus track makes it way to the internet and how bad i want to hear it lol

I'm sure at least half of them will probably never be opened. I need to get on ordering a few of these... and for sure, under $10 is the price point I expect.

Twenty bucks? Holy crap, no way. I spend hundreds of dollars on cassettes a year and I can't think of any tapes I would pay $20 for. I buy them to use them not as a collectable. Oh well, luckily I have the means to dub any cassette I want. Cool product, just priced a bit high for me. Kind of like the $50 Mr. Bones shirt, what the fuck? Wow. Well if people pay it, why not charge it I guess?

it cost more than $5 to press a cassette nowadays  were talking about an obsolete technology that  only a few companies fuck with

having the cassetes made, cuz they aint just lying around, plus transferring the music cost money too.

how many mass production machines are left in the modern world? vinyl is making a comeback but tapes never will even when we are all old

Your wrong. Tapes are still dirt cheap to make. I have a friend in a band that uses a professional company to make cassette tapes, it cost like 1-2 dollars per tape in bulk.
