TVD Autographed Vinyl Giveaway: 10 Years, Minus the Machine

“My first experience listening to music was through a record player. We’ve always been into vinyl, and we wanted to hear our band on a record player. It’s nostalgic and pure. There’s something about the sound when that needle hits the record that just brings me back to my childhood.”

That’s 10 Years bassist, Lewis Cosby on our favorite fetish item of choice around here—and apparently we’re not alone. The band released their brand new, self-produced, fourth LP this Tuesday, Minus the Machine, on their own imprint Palehorse Records—and its vinyl edition is presently on store shelves.

Confounding the notion that releasing single after single is the model du jour these days, I found this refreshing in their bio, “First and foremost, when it’s all said and done, we’re proud of this album in its entirety…An album is your child, it’s your baby, and you know it better than anyone. To sit back and be 100 percent proud of what we’ve accomplished is so gratifying…”

Enter to win an autographed copy of 10 Years’ Minus the Machine by telling us in the comments what album you simply enjoy from beginning to end—from first needle drop to that needle bumping up against the label on side two. We’ll choose one winner with a North American mailing address a week from today, 8/17.

    Fleetwood Mac – Rumours. Best album start to finish ever!

  • Sam McArdle

    The Doors – LA Women, without a doubt one of the finest blues albums ever made and for me it will forever be musics finest goodbye to a sensational band. From the fall of the needle to the start of the label its an utterly brilliant, soulful and iconic demonstration of expressive blues.

  • Alongopenroads

    Disintegration by The Cure. Without a doubt my favorite vinyl to-date 🙂

  • NoahHaight

    Holding a wolf by the ears (Limited Edition Vinyl) by From Autumn To Ashes


    Boston’s Self Titled Debut album.  It does not have 1 bad song on it.  The album is timeless, and were probably ahead of their time when they released it!

    • NoahHaight

      SCHaFFRRR That was my first Vinyl!

    Feeding The Wolves – 10 Years

  • bowler13joe

    Killing All That Holds You by 10 Years!! I was a little late getting into it. However, it’s definitely one of those albums that grips you and doesn’t let you go. Simply amazing.

  • ShaneGorson

    It would have to be By the Way by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, I heard it at a friends and was blown away and got the cd that christmas (also my first cd) and ever since then i can not stop listening to that album its just gold.

  • AngieBerry

    My favorite album is Feeding the Wolves! All of the songs have a story and they are comfoting to listen to. I enjoy seeing 10years everytime they come to Colorado Springs. They do an excellenct show and after the show they take the time to talk to the fans, take pics, and autographs. They are just very down to earth guys and not like other bands that feel they are better than the people they perform for!

  • RobertHudman

    Michael Jackson – Thriller

  • Austin34

    Guns N’ Roses “Appetite For Destruction”. From Welcome to the Jungle to Rocket Queen. I can listen to it front and back and love every second of it.

  • MeganLeeUrban

    I don’t want to be a kiss ass, but my favourite album is your album Feeding The Wolves. It was released the same day my Grandpa was admitted to the hospital. 3 days later I received my CD Bundle and it was the first time I felt joy since he fell ill. I had issues ordering my bundle so I came to you guys for help and met my ex through your Facebook site. Although things didn’t work out with him I never would have gotten with my husband and wouldn’t have my beautiful baby girl. So in a sense that CD brought me my daughter. I have you to thank for that. I don’t expect to win the vinyl, but I just want to let you know that I am totally and utterly in love with your music♥

  • ButchHarryBarbee

    My favorite album ever bought at the navy base in 1980 “Back in Black” ACDC the best album ever made

  • tgiFRIDAY

    My mom gave me my first Beastie Boys album on my 13th birthday. LICENSED TO ILL made me fall in love with music. Love them. RIP MCA. I can listen to this albums for days.

  • AaronDiaz

    Lately I can’t stop listen in to The Gas light Anthem’s Handwritten, on beautiful blue vinyl….so good!

  • NicholasTesla

    When they released the 20 year press of Nine Inch Nails’ “Pretty Hate Machine,” I had to run to the local record store (CD Central of Lexington, KY) and buy it.  The smell of a freshly pressed vinyl record, the heavier weight for the deeper bass.  It was love at first listen.  I must have let that record play 2-3 times through before the night was through.

  • BryanFlanaghan

    Weezers self titled, or the “Blue Album”is one album that I can just listen to over and over again and not get bored. Weezer gets a bad rap with their newer stuff, but the classic Blue Album is one of a kind. “The world has turned…..and left me here”

  • JamesMargrave

    By far the best lp i have is Alice in Chains Unplugged. One of the best performances ive heard in a long time. Its scary to just sit and listen to how good it is…

  • CodyG

     Thin Lizzy Jailbreak, the journey from ‘Jailbreak’ to  ‘Emerald’ is magical, although my favorite stop is ‘Cowboy Song’!

  • LelaNicander

    “Rumours” by Fleetwood Mac. That album was always played growing up. I remember listening to “The Chain” from that album for the first time and thinking, “Wow!” The song is so haunting and honest. When it wasn’t being played by my mom, I remember sneaking into her record collection just to put it on while she was gone. I still love that album and can listen to it from beginning to end.

  • ChrisRomero1

    If there is one album that i can put on and enjoy every single second of it, i gotta go with black sabbath’s paranoid. It was religion to me at the age of 15 and no one could convince me otherwise. I still get excited hearing that very first opening strum to war pigs. I don’t know if there is a more beautiful sound ever recorded. That album will stand the test of time.

  • DMiller2013

    “Pyromania” by Def Leppard. Really any album by Def Leppard.

  • CharlesLee

    that album would be kamelots “the black halo”.an amazing concept album.wonderfully dark and had my ears and mind taken over completely even to this day.

  • Fernando Rotts

    I have actually yet to experience the simple joys of a vinyl album. Being a passionate 10 Years fan from the very beginning after Jesse took over vocals for the band, i can only dream of being able to listen to the dark melodic tones of The Autumn Effect on record. Having already fallen deeply into Minus the Machine, i would tear up having such a valuable piece of my life with me straight from the very band that has saved me from my own demise in life.

    • NoahHaight

      Fernando Rotts That was my exact first thought but looking over the description it doesnt specify Vinyl or CD… Hope its Vinyl!

  • TrevorDrewMiller

    Green Day’s 21st Century Breakdown remains one of the most perfect albums on vinyl. The whole feel of the album just begs to be played on vinyl. I luckily found the vinyl for $5 online somewhere and have never regretted it. From side to side, it’s still one of the most complete albums on any media you choose to listen to it through, but it’s never as complete as it is when listening to it on vinyl.

  • Dan Elliott

    Red House Painters “Songs For A Blue Guitar” is in this category for me. Most things that Mark Kozelek has done are quite stellar, but this one is great! I mean the guy covered Yes’ “Long Distance Runaround” on this release. That’s brave and while it sounds nothing like the original, it’s amazing in it’s own right. Also covered The Cars and Paul McCartney as well. Again, brave and bold! The original on here that stands out the most for me is “Make Like Paper”, but really the whole thing gels so well from the very first note to the last. Check it out if you haven’t and happen to like Neil Young!

  • 10YearsDrakk

    I love love love love love 10 Years. Theres probably no bigger fan than me. I love all the albums. I have most of their songs besides 2 or 3. My favorite is most likely “Killing All that Holds You” or maybe “Division” its so hard to choose!!!

  • Jonathan Diaz Cabrera

    I have yet to hear an album on vinyl, but I’d gladly have 10 Years to be my first band on vinyl.

  • CorynLove

    10 Years’ Autumn Effect. No matter how many years pass, the music and the voice and the lyrics captivate me. My happiest celebrations, my saddest breakdowns, my quiet moments in my room, the bass thumping in my car — all this album. It’s the sound and the feel and the absolute purity of listening to something that not only sounds good, but connects with you. Autumn Effect, beginning to end, on repeat.

  • HOgle

    I simply love music. All music. New old bassy tinny twangy heavy rockin and bumpin. My go to is rock and alternative however. While i can appreciate 10 Years and their sound has its place in my heart, the always has been and always will be my number one album is In Love and Death by The Used. However, i think that in order for anyone to be able to call themselves a music lover they must have a healthy appreciation for everything because the broader your listening gets the deeper your understanding of where sounds come from and how everything in music is essentially connected.

  • Kelly C

    The best album has to be the original movie soundtrack for Xanadu! Just kidding.  The album I always love from the first needle drop to the needle bumping up against the label on side two is Scorpions – Love at First Sting.  It’s classic 80’s metal with power ballads and anthem songs – the best of both worlds.  Also, it was one of the first heavy metal albums ever released that was digitally recorded so the sound quality was amazing.  You can’t help wanting to rock out when you hear the Scorpions.

  • Hopchick

    I love many types of music, but an album I can listen to start to finish at any time is Sully Erna’s Avalon. It’s relaxing but still has some rock roots so I never get tired of it.

  • Heather

    I’m a huge 10 Years fan! LOVE them! One of my favorite albums is Feeding the Wolves.
