Packaging Gimmick Spoils a Fine Release,
By A Customer
This review is from: Bach: St. Matthew Passion / Matthaus-Passion (Audio CD)
This is a fine performance of the Matthew Passion - but I want to make the point that it is spoiled for me by the irritating packaging - just what is so wrong with the good old reliable Jewel Box ?
Worst of all the three discs are so tightly jammed into inflexible cardboard sleeves that they are absolutely impossible to remove without the discs becoming very badly scratched. (just once did for mine!!)
The equivalent would have been to release a beautiful set of LP's and make the inner liners from sand paper !!
