Not sure what quasi acoustic stuff there is. To each their own.

Brand New are decent, but they're way down there on the list of emo and post-hardcore bands I enjoy. Lyrically there are a lot of similar bands that engage me more, like La Dispute.

And sure, they're an emo band. There's nothing wrong at all with that either. They are pretty heavy at times and have some alternative/indie rock features, but the lyrical content and vocal delivery is emo all over.

So it's basically Bono's style of guitar playing, then.

I guess U2 don't fare that well among vinyl-collecting hipsters!

No hitz!
Its quite funny as Citizen Dick is strictly a novelty for die hard fans of PJ and/or the movie.

Mainly acoustic, low key quiet shit with a low mixed, minimal electric guitar lurking in the background.

That Record Store Day chart doesn't accurately showcase demand...the Bob Dylan Basement Tapes release was clearly either #1 or #2 in terms of being wanted (either behind or ahead of The White Stripes), but was released in much smaller quantities. Same goes for Polaris - another very sought after release with a small run.

In terms of actual demand, the U2 record probably wasn't in the Top 100, even, but they pressed like 5,000 copies of the thing.

I hit a few stores in Ashland, Oregon since I was in the area for a wedding. Picked up The Hold Steady, Goldfrapp, Zombies, Metallica Cassette (interesting that a cassette was the second biggest seller this year), Nebraska and Everly Brothers. Neither store had big fills although I showed up a little later than they opened (doors seemed to open at 9 for these places and I was there near 10 although there was hardly a rush of people or evidence of a very big selection).

Went to Medford, Oregon where both stores didn't open until noon (!) and it turns out neither was even stocking for RSD but ordering in releases requested by customers later in the week. Big waste of a couple hours waiting around although we had time to kill. Picked up some $1 tapes and an inexpensive vinyl carrying case as well.

Ordered Happy Mondays/Dixie Cups for the hell of it off Bullmoose today. Great prices and free shipping. Ordered Polaris via the link in this thread (THANK YOU!)

My most sought after and missed release is the Burger Records 101 cassette compilation. Maybe someone will upload a rip of that on the web or I'll come across it.

Sounds like you're describing "More Than Words."

Five of the first six people in line at the shop I went to were after the Elvis record from Third Man. I think they only pressed 1000, but I don't think it was an official RSD release.

My local shop had about ten copies of that Zombies record, and they were all still there Monday night.

Incidentally, the back of the Citizen Dick single makes reference to an upcoming LP. Not sure if serious.

Bullmoose still has The Zombies release...the actual albums went fast in most places last year, but people in general don't know what this release is all about (basically, the best sounding/compiled version of their lost album). I'm proud to have it complement the two albums from last year's RSD.

The Elvis ones definitely must have gone quick. I ran into someone in Medford that said there were a ton of Elvis releases at one of the stores I had been in. There were none there when I arrived. He also confirmed that their were only five racks of albums in the same store and they were mostly full when I got there, so that Elvis release was certainly in high demand.

I like the Singles soundtrack, but god, I hate that movie. All the characters are terrible and/or annoying.

I didn't know that Elvis release was in high demand, I saw a copy of it at one point during the day.

Singles soundtrack is my favourite along with The Crow, but that film is indeed pretty bad.

Its my favorite soundtrack, and I kind of like the movie. (Always had a thing for Bridget Fonda so that may be part of the reason, plus the cameos from Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and AIC.)
