Just when you thought it was Afghan Whigs album outta nowhere! As I have enjoyed just about everything Greg Dulli has released, I was cautiously optimistic about this record before it came out, but I was still a little worried it wouldn't live up to the previous Whigs material. It did. This one made me happy. It was easily my favorite album of 2014.

Do to the Beast was released as a double LP. Pre-orders from Sub Pop received the "Loser Edition", which was on white vinyl. Unfortunately, there was a flaw in the pressing (in one track on side D). Sub Pop later re-pressed the second disc and sent the replacement out to anyone who had ordered it directly from them. I figured that would be the collectible version, but it has not appreciated much. I guess there were enough of those sent out. The album was also released on black vinyl (which did not have the production flaw).

When the band toured in support of Do to the Beast, they sold a tour edition on clear vinyl. This is the expensive/tough to find version. The price has continued to rise.
