CDNow: What the HELL is this?

http://www.cdnow.com/cgi-bin/mserver...itemid=1498867

In case the page disappears, it's advertising an "import album" named U-2000, supposedly released January 30, 2001...

...for nearly $90.

The HELL?

Ya know I saw this a while back on Amazon.com, I mean like beginning of last year sometime....and I remember I wanted to buy it, and again there was no songs or details named- Very wierd.
Now, you got me curious too, I'm gonna e-mail them for a description! I'll let you know if they respond...
For 90 bucks, its gotta be very interesting!

I've seen this item around for a while. I'm amazed at how accessible this item is considering that only 1000 copies of it were made. Hmmmm...

And I agree, spending $90 or more for a U2 lighter, CD, knit hat and don't forget those guitar picks, is silly. I may spend some of my $$ foolishly at times, but even I have restraints.

IMO, this is not worthwhile.
