20 years of News, rumors, minutiae about The Cure
Thats cool. Has anyone who ordered from Rhino gotten theirs yet? Still waiting here in MI.
Nope. Rhino didn't ship their CDs until Tuesday, so they might not arrive until next week, depending upon what shipping option you used.But you should have already received your free sampler. If not, you need to contact Rhino and let them know.
Craig, did you get my e-mail?
Thanks Craig. That was quick. Got my sampler a few weeks back.
Got it, Shawn. Will post in a few.
Thanks, Craig. :)
Hey Andy, are those on poster board or something? When mine comes in from Ideal Copy, I plan on having it matted and framed.
yeah, they are sorta thick. kinda like the ones that were released with 4:13 Dream.and hi Eli, haven't heard from you in a while.
Aw, Andy's so cute! :)
I am always here on COF, every hour till sleep. Last ime I seen you was at Thirty Imaginary Years! Too long. what happened to the Disintegration show?
That was for Andy!
That's what I meant, almost a year. Last I heard about the Disintegration show is that its in the works. I'll let you know when I know.
B.S. I received my "pre-ordered" Disintegration CD and NO SAMPLER!!!
Darth: You ordered your cd at the Rhino shop and have it already? Where are you? And when did it arrive?And if you didn't get your sampler, then you need to contact Rhino ASAP. But the samplers are only for orders that were placed at the Rhino shop.
Yeah I was going to make one more appearance for that show, ya know the RS persona, but my hair is way to long. Longer than Simons from the Show video. Well Andy I will add you to my new profile, the secret one. till then, "May The Cure be with you!" I'm such a dork.
@loose cannon here's the response I got from Rhino when I e-amiled them regarding my copy.Hello there, I have ordered a cd copy of this and have yet to receive it. I have to say I am extremely disappointed. I hope you are not waiting to ship it with the two vinyl copies I ordered. This would really piss me off as the price I was charged to order it direct is way more than if I had waited and just gone to a local shop and purchased it. Free sampler or not your company is a disappointment as far as customer service goes. Not even an e-mail to let me know the status of my order.Dear Mr. SO AND SO (NAME DELETED,Thank you for contacting Rhino.We would like to inform you that your order for The Cure - Disintegration CD RH9364070772 was shipped on Jun 8 2010 via the United States Postal Service (USPS). USPS shipments do not have tracking numbers, but you should receive your order within 5-10 business days.We apologize for the delay/inconvenience caused, and thank you for your patience.If you have any questions, please let us know.Your customer number is 400478176Please refer to case #:: 401213900 if you have any further questions.Please include all previous replies when/if responding to this message.Sincerely,Rathna S.Rhino.com Customer Service1-877-RHINO-51 (1-877-744-6651)Or 212-444-0762(8am to 8pm ET - Mon thru Sun...excluding US holidays)
@Craig,I ordered mine through Rhino shop. I ordered via phone. The rep assured me that they still had Samplers in stock and that I would be receiving mine with my order. She specifically told me, I would not be getting mine early as it is not their policy to distribute such items before the release date...
@Craig againI'm in Missouri and clicked the 3 day UPS delivery option.Thanks, i e-mailed them and i called them before 8pm EST, but they all had left the office already. Hopefully this will get addressed on Sunday.I'll wait for their answer, if I don't get a Sampler, i think i will return it to them and buy it from Best Buy or wherever it is cheaper...i understand that these were limited, however, when i was assured over the phone that i would get one, that just does not sit well with me...oh well, maybe i'm being overly sensitive. LOL!P.S. I'm glad you're back up...I was seriously having severe COF withdrawal!
Thanks All I have to do....I ordered both the cd and vinyl also and that was my fear, that they would wait to ship them when the vinyl gets released. Its supposed to come Priority Mail, so if I dont see it today I will contact them on monday.
Where the hell is my IC order!!!!!!
@Stephani,how did you pay?
Got my copy from IDC, but still no poster in a tube.
Rhino has assured me that i "qualified" for a Sampler and that my order is being expedited. I should have my Sampler sometime next week. What was confusing was I got an e-mail stating that I was getting the Sampler and a voice mail stating that I was not getting a Sampler. I called Rhino to confirm that I am getting one. I think they have too much going on over there...

Got my poster today! Not sure if should open it?.?. I want to mat and frame it. I have the poster from the first batch thanks to andythecurefan, wish I had the poster from the second set. ok i opened it, and it is a hard copy, not a traditional poster but a lith! Back in its tube till it is framed.
Nice photo...I had a feeling Amoeba and maybe a few other indie stores would have the album. I wonder if their pricing is comparable to the online retailers.As for the order I recently placed with CD Wow....all I can says is WOW!The album was dispatched on 6/8 and arrived yesterday. Was very surprised to see that it was shipped from Hong Kong. Apparently CD Wow is owned by an HK company...maybe that explains the cutthroat prices and speedy service! :)Very impressed by the fast (and free) shipping. Will definitely consider doing business with them again.
@Carnage Visors:Nevermind, last night I finally got the email I was waiting for. "Your package has been shipped". I received 2 emails and both are confirmation of my items being shipped but one is media mail (the Disisntegration 3CD and 2LP) and the other email said First Class Mail (poster I assume?).I asked for my poster to be sent folded because rolled takes them 1 week or 2 to send out. Btw, I paid w/ paypal.
Amoeba had the 3CD set for $29.99
Yay! Got my Sampler yesterday!
A quick update on the poster in Seattle. I picked up the vinyl at Sonic Boom in Ballard on Friday June 18th and they had plenty of posters. Easy Street wasn't stocking the vinyl -- they had to special order it when I asked -- and they didn't have any remaster CDs in stock all week in the West Seattle store.And I _finally_ got my CDs from Rhino on Saturday, almost two weeks after ship. That's probably the last time I order from them rather than buy local.
