(little) information about the SOE-formats
« on: October 25, 2017, 08:12:27 AM »
Sometimes I go to U2songs.com. They have most of times very good U2-news.

A few days ago they gave some information about the release.

two CD versions:
- Normal: 1 CD, 19,-
- Deluxe: 1 CD, 21,-. Special packaging.

Two LP version:
- Normal: 2 LP's, 32,-
- Deluxe: 3 LP's, 43,-. In a box

I think the LP's are pretty expensive, and not sure which one I'll buy. A box seems pretty annoying. Does someone know how it's packed then? Will there be a traditional LP cover in the box, or could it contain just the inner sleeves? Probably I'll buy the deluxe LP :). I had so much fun with the SOI deluxe LP, but I knew what it's worth when I bought it. I try to get the first listen on LP, so maybe it's all crape, and I have spend four dozen of euros to it.

Any info on price points for the US?  Because the converted prices in USD listed above for CDs are like $23 and $25 respectively. That seems insanely pricey for CDs these days -  which are usually around the $12 mark.

For new albums  (CD) is around the 20,- pretty normal, most of times just under the 20,-. For LP's the normal price is 23 till 26.

I'd like to buy it at a 'real' record store. But they're often more expensive than shops like Media Markt or Saturn.

I hope the CD is this cheap! I will probably buy it on iTunes though.

Don't agree. I will probably own the CD eventually though for car listening.

One day there will be no CD players in cars though.  I don't own a new car, but I do know the USB port for a phone / MP3 or 4 player is the in-thing to do.  I still have a CD player in the car, but the way things are going over here all the old polluting bangers will be off the road fairly soon, so in due course we'll be downloading everything.
I'll be buying the CD for the car/collectors item.
One love, One blood, One life;
You got to do what you should.
One life; With each other
Sisters, Brothers
One life; But we're not the same
We get to carry each other, Carry each other

Well then I will just spotify it.
The weird thing is I have spotify and it will probably be on spotify, but I will probably buy it on iTunes anyway, as well at stream it on spotify. Huh.
