I thought I would post this on the off-chance that someone from Amazon would see this. But also I'm wondering if anyone else has had the same problem.
I bought the new Lostprophets album "Weapons" on LP and it was badly damaged. Whilst I'm sure the record worked (didn't even bother playing it) the sleeve was bent, there was a sticker on there which someone had tried to remove but didn't properly remove and there were lots of creases.
The reason for this is easy to see, the item came in a box the size of a large DVD player box with just a bit of brown paper to "protect" it. There was no plastic around the new vinyl which you do get if you buy from HMV. I don't know if or why someone removed that.
Seeing as vinyl are supposed to be pretty collectable and seeing as it came 10 days after the album was released I was obviously not impressed.
Amazon have just now sent out a replacement for me but please Amazon if you are reading can you please sort out vinyl deliverys with plastic round the record, smaller boxes and MUCH MUCH more protection. And tell you packers about them too!
Fingers crossed the new one will be in good condition. Anyone else had this problem??
