I know it's not the cheapest price for an album, but it's around £2.00 cheaper than other retailers. Plus it's a special edish ;-)

An absolute triumph, I have been a fan of rem since the 80's and this is an amazing return to form. An instant classic in my opinion. And a bargain at this price, hot.

This is the cheapest I can find it anywhere, so hot. But according to Spotify there's a deluxe edition with 14 tracks (this has 12) so what's so "special" about it?

It's just the card fold out packaging that makes it 'special'. Long term, the reprints will probably be packaged in normal plastic jewel cases.

£4 at Tunetribe.com until 11pm.

Please tell me this is a proper digipak - i.e. has a tray for the disc to sit in - and is not one of these gawd awful cardboard sleeves where the disc slides in and out like an old vinyl LP.

Seriously, WTF? Who on earth thought it a good idea to package CDs in such an idiotic way. Yeah, looks nice... but inevitably the disc surface is always scratched to f*** in advance.

Yeah it is one of those cardboard 'squeeze the cd in' and scratch it style cases.

Is it not possible to buy little, tiny, CD-sized, poly-lined inner sleeves?

Like you can/could for vinyl LPs which are/were similarly atrociously packaged in a way that made sure they were scratched al;most immediately so everybody wanted to buy CDs instead? I like the cardboard packaging (less plastic smaller on the shelf and makes me feel like a giant with a 12" LP) but don't want me CD trashed every time I slide it of of the sleeve. Possibly this is an attempt to get us all to change to downloading (but why would I want to pay more for a poorer quality format?).

My copy is not too bad to be honest, the card does not grip the cd too tight and it is possible not to scratch it, although it has barely left the cd player so it has not been subjected to card case related trauma much...

Good price for a download but MP3s sound terrible on a decent hifi - I'd rather buy the CD and rip it to MP3 myself for my MP3 player.
