A brief word of warning for those who own the 2CD edition of Brotherhood:

Your discs may be getting weird white spots! This seems to be the fault of the sleeves they used for them, as the insides are rough.

I purchased a copy of it today and both discs had white spots on the data side. CD1 ripped just fine, although it struggled with Star Guitar. But CD2 wouldn't rip at all!!!

There is a fix: run your discs under water and use dish soap, if needed. Here is a more detailed guide:

After that, CD2 ripped perfectly and I even went back and re-ripped Star Guitar.
You’re hoping for a miracle
to help you carry on
When nobody loves you, nobody needs you
You’re out here on your own
Who can you turn to, where can you run to?
There’s nowhere you call home

That's why I don't like those sleeve packagings, it's eco-friendly, but they also scratch the cd, etc.

I already had to clean some of them too...
That's why I'm repackaging them ;)
I'm MAD AS HELL!

I have the Japanese edition of Brotherhood deluxe. What's nice about Japan CDs is their editions usually have the CDs housed in their own protective plastic CD sleeve. These are sleeves specificially for the CDs, not the outside case. You can buy these online. The Brotherhood Japan packaging also seems to be different material from the box to the jacket sleeves. The jacket sleeves seem less rough.

Very interesting! Packaging is one of the few reasons I still occasionally buy CDs, so it's very cool to know about the differences from place to place.

I might consider getting those CD sleeves, if they get dirty again.

$20-70

I love the Japanese Modern Masters cardboard LP style reissues for Exit Planet Dust, Dig Your Own Hole, Surrender, Come With Us, and Brothers Gonna Work It Out.

The Nagaoka ones are usually $7-8 for a 20 pack. These are the sleeves for the CD disc itself...

They also make protective sleeves for jewel cases, gatefolds, digipacks, etc.
