A Classic Rip Off
on 28 October 2003
I was one of the lucky ones who waited before buying this special double edition of Sleeping With Ghosts.
Artistically a nice retro rock eighties sound, with excellent songs as This Picture and Bitter End.
Fanfriendly a pure rip off:
1) the cd first came out as only one cd (for about the same prize as this double edition
2) the two cd's are copy controlled which means you have to use the custom cdplayer to listen to the cd's on your pc, but here it comes: the first cd can on your pc only be listened at on 40 kbps (a ridicilous soundquality), the second on 128 kbps
3) the lead singer declared on an interview on MTV that this cd was a 'gift' to the fans (nice gift if you have to cash out again, and the real fans probably rushed out to buy the cd and are now expected to cash out again if they want to own a legal version).
This is exactly the reason why to avoid this editon at all cost. You've been warned !
