Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma

Recommended Posts

I went to a different store of the same company today, to see if they got the normal edition, and what do I find?

 

Cosmogramma 16,99

Cosmogramma Special Edition 15,99 :huh:

Los Angeles 9,99 (same as in the other branch)

 

So I pick up the oddly cheaper Special Edition and L.A. - at the counter, they tell me I need to pay 31,98. I'm saying hold on, that's not right, the lady checks and says "that Los Angeles album is actually 15,99 as well, it's wrongly labeled" - I'm saying fine, I'll leave it then.

 

Later I went back to the other branch again and bought it for 9,99. :lol:

What ever happened to the days of retailers honoring the lower price if an item is mislabeled? Not the consumer's fault. I tried to buy a hat a month or so ago that had a cheaper price tag than the others, bitch wouldn't honor it. :angry:

is there any reason to get the limited edition (CD) from my local store other than the shiny cover? it's 17,99 EUR, not exactly cheap, and I don't beleive there's anything that comes with it other than that sticker ...

Does the normal CD release have the slip sleeve or just the deluxe? I bought Cosmogramma from Barnes & Noble advertised as limited edition, and no sticker...

I'm glad that there's some people who really enjoy this (like me), it proves that not so amazingly cleanly produced busy music(something I make from time to time) can be appreciated and digested if its personally true to the self indulgent artists vision.

 

A lot of people take self indulgence too far but this an album that proves you can do it pretty strongly and it can be widely appreciated

The sticker isn't actually inside or on the CD:

 

Limited first edition CD released in 6-panel Digipak housed in foil-blocked slipcase. Comes with a sticker on top of the slipcase's shrink wrap, which says: "Limited first edition 17 track album featuring Thom Yorke, Thundercat and Laura Darlington"

 

I haven't taken the shrink wrap off yet, I don't know what I'm gonna do with the sticker. Probably cut it out with scissors and then just stick it inside the slip case so it will fall out every time I get the CD out and land under the sofa or something. If your version has the shiny cover and not the cardboard-one outside, then it's gotta be the ltd.

Los Angeles also has a sticker, but it's not golden, so I guess ... :cisfor:

 

The packaging shouldn't matter all that much anyways. Although I like a nicely designed cover.

Really. It's just a sticker on shrinkwrap like 20 million other albums out there.

I cut one end of the shrink wrap, only enough to slide the digipak out of the slipcase. So the shrinkwrap and sticker are still on the slipcase. I normally don't preserve stickers, and again this isn't anything special, I just figured I would this time since it's a special edition. That all stores across the nation seem to still have in stock.

I feel pretty close to the same way. I mean I don't think it's any less good than LA, I'm just still trying to get my head around it in a sense. It's really good but I'm just not sure where it ranks. Not that it has to rank anywhere, it's just meant for enjoying and it succeeds at that.
