... to be honest I'm disappointed. I haven't heard the album yet but I'm disappointed in the case. It looks like it came free with a newspaper. Why aren't bands putting CDs in cases any more? I could have legally downloaded it for £3.97 on Tesco instead I paid £5 more and got a flimsy piece of cardboard with a CD I will use to stick it on my iPod...

To top it, the case is slightly wider than the standard case and doesn't fit in my CD rack!

Anyone else feel this way?

True. I love the art work but the crappy cardboard case lets it down. Its probably down to recycling ann using less plastic

It's cheaper packaging I suppose. Some people pull it off really well.

Also, have you ever seen vinyl packaging? Nothing can ever be worse than that.

Ever.

Not focusing this at Muse, bands who don't use cases in general...


Ok, but still. Listen to the album. It's pretty darn good if you ask me. I dont mind it being like this though. The regular CD cases get scratchy as hell, which is kind of annoying if you ask me.

Its all about the environment. System of a down made their last 2 albums cases from recycled material like that. I heard the leaked version of the album and was quite disappointed. But my da pre-ordered it and got his copy on saturday and according to him its much better. Mm. Muse.

The case is slightly annoying, but the moment I put the CD on and listened it just didn't matter anymore, the album in my own opinion is just so good nothing seems to matter anymore, just me and that music.

I'm disappointed by Muse. They are so hyped it's not even funny.

i think he just wants talk of crap cases


Hmm...potentially a good point. I'll leave it to whichever mod gets the report.

Also, it's recycled material. It's cheap because it's environmental.
