  • I had a thought while on the treadmill today (not sure if it's been said already).

    Could it be that they originally ordered 1000 of the box set but decided to drop it to 500, thus leaving 500 empty boxes to sell.
    Since the empties sold so fast and there are so many wanting it maybe they will order another run...we can only hope!
    It's a good thought. Usually if a box set is limited, an artist typically wouldn't sell just the box, so your theory is plausible.

    If not, you should try it. it's Pretty....pretty...pretty...pretty good.
  • I'm pretty certain I'm gonna cancel my order. I own 9 out of 10 vinyls and $40-50 for extra copys and a box is not really worth it. Not with my economy. But have to build up the courage to cancel. Will take a few days. Haha.

    If there is something really cool in there you'll be upset!

    The only thing that would upset me, is if Mirroball 2 is in there.

    Let me know if/when you'll do it, so I can email them in order to claim your copy.. I know, I'm a sucker. I have all the originals (inluding four copies of Binaural), but, as I said it, I'm a sucker and I need help.
  • 4 copies of Binaural is fine; 5 would be ostentatious.

    I find the lack of communication with regards to some of the recent releases frustrating. A little transparency or even answers to the questions that are being asked would be appreciated.

    1. Does the boxset include the same pressings as the all reissues?
    2. What is different about the OG Ten? Is it just a different cover than what was pressed a few years ago
    3. Are the singles on colored vinyl or not?
    4. What (if anything) is different about the boxset releases?
    5. Is there a possibility the empty box will be restocked?
    6. Let's Play Two - what is different with the 10C release? Is it just the cover is a glossy finish.

    It's like they withhold information to increase sales based on the possibility that something may be different coming from 10C (randomly signed items, random coloured vinyl, etc).

    Of course

    I agree with you. I don't want people to think that I'm obsessed.

    All great questions, Ten seems to be the original master and not the redux, at least that's what I take away from seeing OG (original).

    Ha, I thought the opposite. I figured since the band is pretty open about not liking the original mix, this is the version from a few years back, but with the original cover.
    I have the original pressing, but would like to keep my originals separate from reissues. Would be good to know. I'd buy it if it was original so I could play that version without playing my OP, but dont need it if it isnt.

    Maybe ostentatious means something different in europe.

    I did not know that about Seattle's mayor. :tired_face: I definitely don't think ostentatious is the appropriate label for a child molester!!

    Hahaha @ blumpkin.  I haven't given one of those in weeks.
    I had a false belief I thought I came here to stay. We're all just visitors.

    I was at the same time reading a thread on another forum about it going from 4 to 5 accusers in that Mayor-thing. Read ostentatious as meaning "too much". Weird coincidence. 


    Anyways. 

    Carry on.

    (Would die for one (1) Binaural. Glad it's re-released. Been close to paying absurd amounts for it through the years)

    It doesn't look good for the return of the empty Pearl Jam vinyl box to be back on sale @ the 10club store. :(
