... buy this:
I thought WTF!?! when I first opened the message and saw the price on this package. That's a considerable chunk o' change for a re-mastered album and a new live CD of DSotM's songs. But then I went to Amazon and looked at what's included in the package... and found out there's yet another CD of unreleased material, two DVDs, and a BluRay disc, as well. From the ad copy:
Immersion Editions present the complete artistic experience. Lavishly packaged in a sturdy 29cm square box, the sets contain remastered, previously unreleased and audio-visual material, plus much additional content – reproduced memorabilia, brand new graphics, art prints, collectors’ items, lavish booklets and more.
I suppose the question I should ask myself is "Do I REALLY need a fourth copy of DSotM?" I already own two vinyl copies... one original and one half-speed mastered (currently in SN2's basement)... and a "normal" CD. I'm thinkin' the answer is "yes," based on my experience with the Beatles re-mastered CDs I bought last year. I'll wait for the package to actually hit the market and read some reviews before I drop the money, however.
Finally... what's with that "29cm" shit? This is AMERICA... and we say "11.5 inch square box." GOML!
