Oops...

Wrong thread.

Er, I'm still waiting for my 2CD version of The Terror to come from Amazon UK so I can compare to the "shuffle ready" version.

Just ordered the silver vinyl from the Lips store, which was meant to come with instant downloads of the album, Sun Blows Up and All You Need is Love, but the confirmation email they sent doesn't contain any goddamn links, so I've sent an email to customer service

I enjoyed this album quite a bit on first listen. It has that "good to listen to at night" vibe I often enjoy.

They emailed me back and sent me .zip files... the album came two times over. The "individual shuffle-ready" versions, which have radically different track times to the leak and on wikipedia, and then the full album as one 55 minute mp3. Really annoying. Did anyone buy the CD? Do they have the normal track times? What the hell Flaming Lips?!

What's the CD like? Does it break the songs up, or is it one track?

I think I'm gonna have to break up the album mp3 into individual tracks. How infuriating.

9 tracks. 54:54 total.

The UK version came with a 3" bonus CD. Can't rip that with my slot-loading CD drive. I will have to use one of the drawer style drives at work.

I've never thought of that, makes sense it wouldn't work in them. I have one, maybe two of those, kicking around my collection. What's on the bonus disc for The Terror? Sun Blows Up Today?

Sun Blows Up Today and a cover of All You Need Is Love.

I'm honestly not sure what would happen if I tried to insert the 3" CD in a slot-loading drive, but I'm not willing to try it.

Nice, but they should have drawn a line through "The Soft Bulletin" to get the full effect.

Yeah I noticed that too.

I'm BY FAR the nerdiest person I know in real life.
