    Did anyone here end up getting that deluxe box? I wonder if they're shipping out this week. God damn I wish I'd ordered that.

    The deluxe box is, somewhat surprisingly, still available in PaxAm's store. You can still buy one here:
    https://ryanadams.shopfirebrand.com/collections/vinyl/products/prisoner-end-of-world-edition

    The fact that it's still available begs the question as to why all the fuss w/ the way the pre-sale for it was set up? Were the pre-sale notices, special passwords and unique urls for "subscribers" really necessary? If anything they gave the impression that the set was much more 'limited' that it actually is. Cool boxset nonetheless but, perhaps, a bit of misleading marketing gimmicks.

    ....or maybe sales lagged based on high price point...? Looking forward to streaming the full album later today via NPR

  • I think maybe it didn't sell as well as expected. Just look at the posters in this thread who passed on it, like MFC, one of the biggest DRA fans I know and even he passed due to the cost. 17 bsides couldn't even do the job. I think I'll get this box eventually if it's available, but I can't justify the cost right now.

    yup. too pricey & not a fan of all 7" singles. I definitely want the bsides & hope that he releases those on their own.

    Imagine if Pearl Jam released a Ten reissue version like this. 11 7" with the album tracks on side A and 11 b-side demos... holy crap we would be all over that.

    Yeah, I think 7" + price point turned alot of people off.

    I still bought it. It looks badass.

  • His ticket prices were kind of expensive this go round, too. Is he having to pay alimony??

    With as successful as her show is on NBC and already moving on to another dude...he better not be.

    Hey MFC, I know you're a musician as well. How do you play Feels Like Fire? It sounds like maybe 3 chords in the whole song but there's something I can't put my finger on it. I play it in F with the capo on 3. I've got the F and Bb figured out. The theory in me makes me think it's a variation of C that I'm missing. Have you ever tried to play it? I think it's one of the catchiest songs he's ever released and would have been a great single from the last record.

    I learned it using this tab/chord chart. It sounds pretty accurate to me.

  • Hmmmm. That's an interesting take on it. I'll try that later.

    You gonna get his VCR pedal?

    at least I think that's the one I used...haha. I know that I capo at the 5th, so that's why that one jumped out at me. I'll grab my guitar when I get home.

    I didn't know the pedal was for sale?!

    just found it online. I'd have to try it out first, I think. I just got a new pedal, so now may not be the best time.

    I dunno....there was a ton of positive feedback on his IG feed where lots of folks were saying they'd purchased a copy of the deluxe.

    I'm presently about 1/2 thru my first stream of the full album.....sounds incredible so far.

    That's exactly how I was with this album. It took longer to get into but now that it's sunk in...wow. That's how I am with amazing albums though. Not always accessible on the first listen.

    I was just the opposite. I thought his was more immediate than the last 2. It's probably his best album since the 2005 run. I may even like it more than 29 which puts this album in the upper half of his officially released solo catalog.

    That's kinda funny just because I find his albums hit and miss at best - I really don't like the majority of them (and 1989 is my fave, which isn't even his own music, and Taylor Swift songs no less, lol), and generally think of him as only being really good when he plays live - but I enjoyed this new album on first listen.

    That boxset is $200 USD to Canada, the collector in me is twitching cause I know I shouldn't..... stoked for the Canadian tour dates.

    I decided not to listen to any leaks, and avoided streaming until I had my copy... My cd hasn't arrived yet, and the download link (from ordering the box) only arrived this morning. That will teach me to wait!

    It's been on repeat all morning though, great album :)

    This what I'm doing, going to get it from the record store sometime this week. My dog and I will have an exclusive first listen together.

    Has anybody received their presale code for the UK/Irish shows? I signed up for it but haven't heard a thing and presale is tomorrow morning.
    Edit: Never mind. Just got it.

    Love that sax part in Tightrope, reminds me so much of a Bruce song. This album is really damn good.
