Re: New Underworld album - Barking (Sept. 13, Sept 2 Japan)
my issue isn't how easy it is or isn't to get stuff from hmv.jp - it's that we have to do it in the first place.

bang on all they like about about romford and essex - i live 2 miles from fucking essex, yet have to wait and pay extra for exclusive stuff to come from tokyo?

i'm hoping this won't prove to be the case and that uw do give a toss about fans beyond japan. but on past behaviour...

Re: New Underworld album - Barking (Sept. 13, Sept 2 Japan)
i'm with ian on this one

music should be shared and available to all, not just to japanese fans who ONLY buy stuff if it contains exclusive stuff...

the rest of the world copes ok buying cd's without exclusive tracks what makes japan so special that the standard release is NOT good enough for them... its not a slight on the japanese, just the system thats been created that demands bands make content especially for them... its not uw's fault either really, but in this digital age - its not so hard to make things available to all - then no one is MORE special than anyone else

i also share the same opinion as the two posters above. i love buying records and i've already bought expensive special editions from other bands. with OwB i really wanted the japanese edition, but the price (U$100) was way beyond the real list price, specially if it was just for some extra content. no big boxes, posters, books, vinyl and cd records or whatever else special editions have. just a couple cds in a regular box. i really liked how athens came packaged and the print, and how easy it was to get. it's kind of unfair, specially for fans who live far from countries that will get a official release. most of us rely on the international catalogs from our local record stores.

or ebay.

Re: New Underworld album - Barking (Sept. 13, Sept 2 Japan)
I think you guys are barking (ahem) up the wrong tree. UW didn't invent the Japanese bonus track. Again, that's an artifact of the artificial album price controls in Japan. Because those price controls tend to make the album releases in Japan higher even than imports from another region (say, the US), the Japanese labels/distributors often insist on some type of exclusive bonus in order to try to keep people from buying cheaper imports.

You can read more about this phenomenon in the Debbie Gibson FAQ

So you'll just have to accept that Japanese bonus tracks exist. That aside, regarding the editions (Regular/Deluxe/Limited), we don't know yet whether or not all the different editions will be available worldwide, so it's a bit premature to get panties bunched over that, eh?

don't think you've made a strong enough argument for that

Yes totally agree - it's difficult to write about music and to me it's always the way it makes you feel that gets me.....the review was interesting to read but it doesn't tell me what it really sounds like......and while I'm at it - how can you compare Scribble to Born Slippy!!!

Maybe it was mentioned before and I missed it, but according to trafficjpn, the Japanese bonus track is Simple Peal, and the Deluxe Edition DVD contents are:

1. Bird 1 - Directed by Dylan Kendle
2. Always Loved A Film - Directed by Graham Wood
3. Scribble - Directed by Toby Vogel
4. Hamburg Hotel - Directed by Dylan Kendle
5. Grace - Directed by Jason Kedgley
6. Between Stars - Directed by Michael Horsham
7. Diamond Jigsaw - Directed by Simon Taylor & Hudson-Powell
8. Moon In Water - Directed by Timothy Bricknell
9. Louisiana - Directed by Toby Vogel & Danielle Short


Danielle's directing now? Look forward to it

So it's the same conception like CB's Further DVD with visuals for each track.
