Those of you in the US still waiting, where are you based? I'm in Buffalo NY (more or less) and as of tomorrow will have had mine for 3 weeks now. I once had a larger package from Amazon.uk take 5 weeks to reach me when usually they take about 7-10 days and most other UK based shipments follow suit.

I think occasionally they get stuck on a boat instead of being sent air mail.  Then you get the 4-6 weeks time frame instead of 7-10 days.  

I'm in Orlando, FL, btw

Not meaning to sound disingenuous here but...

Is it just me - or is the audio on the CD VERY heavily compressed - to the extent of sounding distorted?

Would like to point out that I am not one of those who complained about the sound of Tomorrow's World...and that I felt the sound on the album was a tour de force of mixing and mastering for a 21st C audience.

But this sounds painful to me...

Noticed it when I first listened - and put it down to setting on my stereo, but having transferred it onto my PC (to make up some definitive playlists) there seems to be very little dynamic range in any of the songs - and some show signs of serious clipping. The most obvious ones are the Whole Lotta Love Reflex Mixes, Fill Us With Fire Keegan Radio Mix and WISTBIAD Simlish Version (Most notably that one in particular!)

It could just be me - but opening the files up on Adobe Audition shows them all to be limited 'flat' so I wonder if anyone else is noticing a problem.

Actually finding it a wee bit difficult to enjoy, so am gonna have to do some tinkering with settings - lest my eardrums rattle around like buggery again!!!!

It's still a fabtastic set tho - and really don't mean to be the negative one!!!!!


i too noticed the bad sound on some of the mixes, i thought maybe it was just me but turns out its not! hmmm what can we do about this?

Me too. My box set arrived this week in Argentina, and I also noticed the aggressive compression and distortion immediately. In fact, the aggressive compression has been present since the first mixes of the WIST(BIAD) single surfaced, and I never liked the fact of having the loudness level going up and down all the time when I listened to them.
I asked Alan (Lexer) if there was something that could be done about the mastering of the CD, and he said that there’s nothing they can do other than return for refund, which most people won’t want to do.

I am still waiting and am accepting the fact that it is either lost in the mail somewhere or else one of the kids at my last job (where I had it sent) decided to be nasty and trash it. They're pretty nasty people (the reason I left), so I'm thinking it's the latter that happened. In shock, this will be the first Erasure release of any kind that I don't have. Speechless and deeply saddened.

Honestly, I can't believe it took longer than mine to arrive. I thought I was always the last one to receive anything from the UK, but you've just proved me wrong.

If you missed out on ths Boxset when it was released then quickly get over to Lexer if you still want one as they've found some spare copies and are selling them at £21.95

When I received Lexer's email and immediately entered the site, it was still possible to order a box-set, but then, after a few minutes, I entered again and everything was sold-out. They disappeared in the blink of an eye.
