Universal says:
    MAH (instrumental)
    Catch Me I’m Falling (Instrumental)
    Eve Of Destruction (Instrumental)
    Free Yourself (Instrumental)

Well when I click that link it doesn't say Free Yourself instrumental, just the other three. I know there is an instrumental of FY as it's already "out there" on the internet, but I don't see it being offered here. Does it somehow look different in Germany, or do I need glasses?

Maybe they wanna trick us Germans into that deluxe deal?

Interesting. When I visit the universal store via the chems homepage store tab, I also get the three-track deal with a €6 higher retail price, now at €50.99 for the package. And it tells me there will be a "The Universe Sent Me" instrumental. Weird.

Edit: And it contradicts the one part of my assumption that all instrumentals might be on the vinyl by stating that those three tracks will be available via download card.

Not to be a Debby Downer but where is the extra value in the 3LP? The bonus tracks are only instrumentals, so they’re not new songs or b-sides, and they’re download only? Don’t people buy vinyls to actually listen to the songs on vinyl?

If it’s only a download code and the same track listing as the 2LP I don’t think I’ll pay extra just for different colour vinyl and nice packaging.

They're heavyweight vinyl, which is both higher quality sound and will last longer. Limited edition. It's a tradition too - all albums since Dig Your Own Hole (except Further) have had a heavyweight 3xLP version pressed.

Also, a strong chance you get an exclusive unmixed track or two. On the Surrender 3xLP you can hear the ending of Got Glint, instead of it fading into Hey Boy Hey Girl, on We Are The Night you can hear the end of Burst Generator, and even the 3xLP of Born in the Echoes, with no transitions, has a version of I'll See You There with no vocal sample in the intro.

Sometimes you also get these broken transitions on the regular 2xLP (Push the Button 2xLP splits Come Inside and The Big Jump), sometimes not.
Never for money, always for love.

180g records are just heavier and therefore feel sturdier. There is no difference in sound quality between a 140g/160g/180g/200g LP.

All of them were promo releases. The first official 3LP release was the "Born in the echoes" 3LP set - with bonus track :)

Saw this on their youtube page as an icon for their videos.
Found a bigger version.



Should work for the inner album art maybe.
As if T and E are tapping into new energy!

Couldn't they just put bonus tracks on the worldwide release and then charge more for imports? I still don't really get how this happens every time. It's a different label in Japan? That absolutely has to charge more than the import version? How about no?

12 [Japanese Edition Bonus Track] Got To Keep On (Extended Mix)

This is fucking excellent news though.

damn damn damn

GTKO extended better be on a 12' after we get the MAH/FY release because it makes perfect sense now. EOD/GTKO should be in the works. I want it on a silver platter.

Nothing new, but Google Translate didn't quite get it.. Still great to see.
Glad I've booked that trip to Tokyo in May a while back, so bang-on timing to claim my mint copy!

No one's actually said: A whole new song! Which is (potentially) the really interesting bit .
So is it Fan Thai or Fan Tie*? Is it going to sound Asian? Will it be the Chems first foray into Goa Trance? (I know, Goa's in India, and the title sounds more Far Eastern but they did play a Goa Trance kinda track at Printworks...) And where did your translation come from Neorev? I just see the titles in Japanese on the CD Japan site.

*Actually the google translate from HMV's listing spells it Fan Tai. And it seems Fan Tai Sui is something to do with the Chinese Zodiac?...


EDIT: I also found this little stub on Wikipedia: Fan Tai
Also HERE'S the track from Printworks that I was thinking of. Pure guessing of course!
One more thought: Fan Thai is actually the name of a Thai restaurant...

I used Google Translate. I tried a couple of others and I got Fan Tie, Fan Thai, and Fan Thailand.

Man. If that's the back of the vinyl, it looks beautiful.

And damn, another new font to find!
