These are the exact same release just from two different storefronts.

Also the vinyl color variations for this particular album seem to have separate entries. Not sure if it was done in the past. If that is the case, all of the Data Discs releases (for example) might use similar approach. I'm well aware Discogs has the system in place but no idea if VGMdb has any plans (or even wants) to better support this type of "reprints".

I said something in Discord about it, this is something we 100% should be doing but are not, and should be enforced going forward. Different vinyl variants need to be unique entries in the DB for collection purposes, otherwise there is no way to identify which version a user has. So yes, all Data Discs releases should probably be updated if they have a limited/standard or different color variant. I did it for this one but didn't really have the time or motivation to do it for all previous releases.

Looking at the previous Brave Wave releases, there was no need for both US and EU albums. Storefront was the only difference indeed. Deactivated for now. We can bring it back if necessary.
