Yes, everything in the photo arrived together in one package for me, ‘signed for’ (which these days means ‘eye contact with postie’! of course )

First impressions on the remaster are similar to everyone else’s, sadly. Wanted a rant about not judging audio quality by just looking at waveforms... but it is harsh, overcooked, cranked up, as has been said. It’s a shame, but not the end of the world.

On the plus side, the download code with the vinyl gives you both MP3 and 24-bit WAVs, the latter of which does offer some latitude for some personal tinkering in the future to make it sound a bit less harsh.

Haven’t delved into the demos yet, hopefully get time later on.

Crappergate or crapperhearing?
So loving NOSTALGIC PUSHEAD. Who wouldn't? But the "So cool the new sound of the decade!".
Yeah, my hearing is weird and not hearing certain parts, but is that an alternate take vocal?
Can we bring up the standard and remastered version of that part?
No, we don't seem to be an ITV1 studio in Manchester.

My confirmation email says orders in this shipment were out for delivery - signed cd and signed vinyl- but I am also missing the vinyl now.
Hope this isn’t the same f’k up as THB box - arrived damaged, no signed ones left for a like for like replacement.
I’ve emailed Kontraband Stores. Will let you know what happens...

Signed insert is creased too ��

My signed insert was a bit mangled at the bottom edge too... not great. Hopefully it will flatten out.

Had a response - hopefully these later signed sleeves will materialise... There seem to be quite a few instances of the missing vinyl between here and Twitter. Someone has a box full somewhere??!

“At the moment we do not have signed LP's available to correct this, however, we are going to send you a standard LP, and will arrange for a signed sleeve to be sent to you in the very near future.”

For fucks sake.

Can we compile a list of times the official site has fucked it?

The Great Western Red vinyl - they sent out black vinyls
National Treasures box - bashed corners, photocopied sleeves
GATS signed vinyl - not enough vinyl/signed copies

Well I don't know about anyone else but it's been raining non stop for 24 hours and I've just had my delivery. The signed paper insert is totally ruined due to the package being totally soaked, and it's also creased where the CD book has been packed against it.

The GT CDs that started to crack after a couple of years.

You sort of feel like you’re doing the right thing by ordering via the Manics website, yet it’s a bag of shit.

£50+ paid back in March for an album and delivery, yet people can order from other outlets cheaper and get them on release date.

Obviously it’s only going to be a day or two after the release date when mine turns up, but they’ve had fucking months to plan and post these. Shite.
