Well, I hope my cd arrives today! What I still don't quite get is the artwork. First, it is a photograph from another album; was it mentioned in the sleeve? On the other hand, as I said, I understand NG has some sort of political connotation on the lyrics, but what does the picture of soldiers and a war tank pointing to a bridge have to do with this political context the album was created and released? (I really love the image though).

Look at the clouds a bit closer... ;)

What if I insert a 3rd, random vinyl in the sleeve? Will the card appear?

Haha!

I purchased the 2LP version from the shop I work at. Came direct from Universal in North America but I can also confirm it is the European pressing currently listed on Discogs https://www.discogs.com/The-Chemical-Brothers-No-Geography/release/13399166


  • Hmm... I was confused

Ha! Someone on Discogs has listed the messages in the runout grooves for this version.
Side D: Sovrinti.
A deliberate mis-spelling of sovereignty. That's a caustic swipe at Brexiteers and their desire for Blue Passports and "getting their country back". Like this:

Are there any messages on the triple vinyl?
DON'T. LOOK. DOWN.

That's good to know. I can get the 2LP delivered from Amazon US to Australia for a really decent price ($37 AUD if my total spend with Amazon is $49) but I want the European vinyl, not an Astralwerks branded one.

Wait! You did the pre-order?

Cancel it and get your money back! Go to a website or an actual store and buy it. You'll get it faster. I hope all of you learned a valuable lesson from my MAH experience! Never again Astralwerks! Never again!

The CD I pre-ordered hasn't arrived! From the shipping info, It's currently stuck in Chicago ( I think Bosco is holding it for ransom)

I ordered on Astralwerks too it’s still not here. They only had the pre-sale of concert tickets going for them. Next time I’ll just order it from Japan and get it here sooner with bonus tracks to boot.

Mine was stuck there for a week as well... There better be deep dish attached to my package when it arrives on the 23rd - A WEEK AND A HALF AFTER THE ALBUM WAS RELEASED.

Bump.

I didn't even check ! Yes there are messages !

On evey side, there are two messages. One is the same on all :
"Mike The Exchange MMM"

And the other one:

A:
"Energy Cannot be Destroyed"

B:
"Balooning about"

C:
"3 to 4"
D :
"Where is everybody ?"

E:
Nothing :(

F:
"Sovrinti"


So, only "Balooning about" is added to the messages of the 2LP version

Cool! I was going to say, this time around and what's happening in the UK I would have been surprised if there hadn't been any etchings.
You wanna know my biggest disappointment for the live sets 2019? You wanna know? I tell you what my biggest disappointment is: I AM FUCKING NOT THERE!

Looks like the store I preordered the Japanese edition CD from fucked me. When I ordered it, it was preorder and now the date is here and it suddenly says back order. Received to shipping info or updates. So now I had to write them. So pissed off. I just wanna knew what's going on, if they got my copy or not, so I can go and order it elsewhere while I wait for my refund.

ImportCDs, it's a US based store. I got in touch and it is on back order. Bastards. I've used them many times. They have good prices. Waiting for my refund, but I already ordered it from Amazon Japan while I wait. Will be here next week.
