    I`ve ordered this but I am concerned about the playback of picture discs as compared to normal vinyl. Anyone any views?

    • thegreatelephant says:

      yeah, just look at them! consider them more as art and supporting the artist than for playback. think many do.

      • richie says:

        They do look good and £23 is a bargain. But music is for listening to so it`s the black vinyl for me when the price drops.

        As for supporting the artist, I reckon Roger will not mind being a multimillionaire.

        • thegreatelephant says:

          true enough. can’t argue with any of that. maybe better to say- supporting projects so others get done. and something decent to spend money on that is tangible and a ‘share’ that you control so to speak.

      There is a disclaimer on the Amazon UK detail page for this that states the quality of pressing for picture discs is lower than for ordinary vinyl, so my guess is that this won’t sound as good as the standard vinyl release. Nonetheless, at the price it’s going for on Amazon FR, it’s woth checking out.

    Just a comment–I think it’s a little, er, “amusing” that the new art focuses so closely on the eyball motif, which his ex-band would do on the live “Pulse” set. Obviously not the same, but the similarity is there.

  7. I received and email from Amazon France yesterday saying they didn’t have any stock of the picture disc, and would let me know when they did, but had no estimate on when. This is after me placing my pre-order on the 9th May.

    Sadly, I’m lacking in my French arguing skills, so will see what happens. Anyone else who took advantage of the French offer get this email?

  8. Simon Harmsworth says:

    Yes, same here. Annoying when there are lots of other sellers on there with stock offering it at much higher prices.

  11. Just received an email from Amazon.fr to inform me I will receive my copy next week.

    Mine arrived on the 1st, number 08060
