I have gone off-topic in one or two threads to lament the fact that most CD covers are pale imitations of LP covers, even when they could have made an imitation of fold-outs etc most of them don't ("Sgt, Peppers", "Walls And Bridges" anyone?).

I just bought "New", and the packaging is OK - nothing special.

It just happened that one of the other acts I like, Pearl Jam, have a new CD out just now as well.  Even if you don't follow them, if you are getting "New" at a 'bricks and mortar' store check out their new CD "Lightning Bolt" and maybe some of their previous 9 (ooh - that number!!).  This is one band that have really taken the time to make each album its own piece of packaging art and add value to the physical purchase - a lot of other acts could learn a lot from what they have done.  It even cost me A$3 less than Paul's album.

As an aside, they have a nice shout-out to Neil Young (another one of my favourite acts), who could also learn from the way they package their products.

When Im 64 said
I just repeated because I messed up the first one. New to the forum, sorry.

Not a problem, When Im 64. I've zapped it for you. If you ever need anything removed, just post the thread it's in and the post number, saying you want it deleted, to the "Weird things happening with the forum" thread in "Getting Better", and one of the moderators will happily get rid of it.

May I welcome you to our merry band. Should you wish to say anything about yourself, there's a "Introduce yourself to the forum" thread over in "All Together Now".
