I agree, pisses me right off. Did you notice on amazon they have a few OWB CDs at various prices? Product description on each is exactly the same though.

Re: OWB USA Pre-Order
I emailed Echospin last night about the possibility of them offering t-shirts again with the pre-order. I was able to get one for myself, but I was planning on ordering another one as a gift. Below is there response.

Hi Jason, we just ran out of t-shirts. We are trying to convince the
printer to make up an extra batch. If they agree, you will be able to
order one but it will delay delivery of the CD for at least a week,
probably more. You will still get the MP3 downloads next Tuesday. Would
you be interested in this offer?

Re: OWB USA Pre-Order
Got mine this morning too. Been at work and haven't had a chance to listen to OWB yet. I intentionally stayed away from downloading pre-release copy so the majority of the tracks will be new to me (minus live stuff I heard at both SF shows)! Won't have much time to listen tonight as I have a concert (Patrick Wolf) but I'm setting aside time tomorrow after work!

Re: OWB USA Pre-Order
Got mine in the mail, too. I didn't think it would arriving today, so a great surprise. I stayed away from the leaks too cuz I wanted to be surprised.

The CD packaging is impressive and beautiful.

The t-shirt looks great. Glad I ordered the XL. I think the large would have been too short. If Prince can wear purple, then it's good enough for me!

Re: OWB USA Pre-Order
I just got the e-mail for the Echospin album MP3s. Although I was lucky enough to get the album on the 15th, I was curious to see if Echospin's downloads would work on my computer, given the system requirements on the site (I'm running Linux on PowerPC, possibly THE worst merger of two relatively popular platforms!). The good news is twofold: the downloads worked perfectly (they're basically just links, exactly like the initial Crocodile + remix links) and the MP3s are vbr of very high quality; I'm guessing settings around lame -V 0 (I used -V 1 to encode the CD and the Echospin dowloads had higher bitrates). If it worked for me, it'll work for anyone! Only one bad thing: the MP3s appear to have no ID3 tags. If you get the e-mail, but haven't received the CD yet, go for it. You'll be able to hear the album pretty transparently Thanks, Echospin, and most of all, thanks Underworld!

Re: OWB USA Pre-Order
Did my MP3 download. I was shocked, SHOCKED, that they had a Mac download client. It downloaded everything lickety-split and added it right to my iTunes library. They sound great.
