  7. If you have any contacts in the UK, you can use a UK iTunes gift card and a UK address to set up a separate account.

    You can also try the Universal UK Music Store here. They don't have a pre-order link up yet, but I expect they will soon. I'm able to use my US credit card there.

  8. The US iTunes store, Amazon US, and other digital stores will have it available on May 25th, just 24 hours after the UK stores.
    But I'm not sure if iTunes US will be offering the same contents that the UK store is.

  14. Is the official date still May 24th? O hope all of these deliverys count towards the UK chart as I wanna see Disintegration up there! haha.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't understand how someone can purchase these Cure re-masters via a digital download! I mean, sorta defeats the whole purpose, if you know what I'm saying!

  18. i got mine yesterday (19th) at a lil independent shop here in berlin. There was an older woman working so i doubt she realized what the actual release date was supposed to be. It was a couple € more than if i got it at Saturn or a chain store, however.

  20. Don't usually comment but the excitement - muwahahae. Managed to pick up Disintegration yesterday (Thurs) in an independant in the UK. Scottish fans head to mono in Glasgow!

  28. Guys...

    I have Disintegration in my hands....

    Want any pictures Craig?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hey Craig just a quick note, maybe it's important. It occurred in Germany that in some Disintegration Deluxe Sets the Entreat Plus CD is missing and instead a second booklet is included. So f*cking Universal messed it up again.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Moontear - Those German fans aren't missing much..Entreat plus is awful.....such a disappointment....how can you make a remixed album sound worse than the original..I dunno but he's done it...shamful...Bori's snare sounds like a biscuit tin

    The remastered album is superb though

    ReplyDelete
  31. just got the cd and vinyl in Tower Records,Dublin. Ireland!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Keith - Damn it, I was hoping that wouldn't be the case with the actual disc. It sure sounds that way on the sampler download. I'm comparing with the live songs from the Pictures of You single and I love the more full sound on the remaster, but you're right, the snare sounds very thin. I'm assuming the talk in between tracks has indeed been taken out as well? :(

    ReplyDelete
  33. Todd: No, all of the intros are still there. Must have just edited them for the sampler.

    ReplyDelete
  34. @Perfect Murder: I'm off to HMV Oxford Circus now. Any luck today? It sucks how other HMVs and places in Germany sell it first :(

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hmm.. Have sourced two (Aussie) stores in my area and they both say it will be available on the 28th..
    I even asked them very nicely if they could sneak one out of the box for me and they said no can do as it ships on the 24th..
    Confused and not happy.. :p

    ReplyDelete
  36. @TLS..Just been to HMV Oxford Street...not on sale till tomorrow(monday)..i had to order as they are only getting 20lp's...the other HMV on Bond Steet had just 3 lp's in for tomorrow.Obviously they will get more of the Deluxe version but i thought a total of 23 vinyls for 2 main stores was poor...Roll on tomorrow night then!:)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I asked why HMV in Dublin was selling already and was told music comes out on fridays in Ireland, and mondays in the UK..

    ReplyDelete
  38. My copy arrived from Amazon UK on Saturday 22nd. Got to say I'm very pleased with the remaster - very loud - love the studio rough version of "out of mind" and entreat plus is great, tsdway... nice. Brings back happy memories of buying it on release day in 1989 and my first show at Birmingham NEC the following July.

    How about a poll for the best tracks on the 3 cd set?...

    ReplyDelete
  39. @perfect.murder: Yeah I went and they wasn't out. I checked Oxford Circus, Bond Street, Picadilly. I event went to Fopp and Sister Ray. Sister Ray told me as they're all on the chart system they couldn't sell me it as they'd get fined. I figure you need to find somewhere very independent. I'm actually buying it on cd so I didn't reserve it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Notherbob: Your local stores are correct. You fall in between the European and North American release dates.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Birding: Already have the polls planned. Should be up tomorrow with the "official" release.

    ReplyDelete
  42. @TLS...Went to Sister Ray too on saturday and the guys were very apologetic for not being able to sell it early....hey, just another 12hrs to go now!!:)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks for the confirmation, Craig..
    Doesn't make me feel any better though.. *sniff* :p

  44. Lame old times in New Zealand, today it was supposed to be instore, but I was told it is delayed due to volcanic ash....what?????
