I woke up this morning to find a package from CDJapan on my door mat, obviously I couldn't wait to rip it open. I thought I'd take a few pictures of the box and booklet for you guys. My copy has the bonus DVD, so it's in a big jewel case, not the cardboard box that some people are getting.

Here's a link to the zip containing all the pictures. The white booklet at the end contains the lyrics in Japanese, I didn't think I'd bother uploading those!

The pictures are high enough quality to be able to read the lyrics if you zoom in.

And all three days before the UK release date!

www.cdjapan.co.jp

They're really good. Shipping isn't cheap but I've been using them for my imports for about 2 years now. When I preordered the Offspring CD I selected the second cheapest shipping (which is what I usually use) that quotes 4-12 days, and it arrived 2 days after the release date.

Did you get charged any extras from Customs/Royal Mail?

Yeah it really is. It reminds me a lot of the artwork from Co1, which I loved, but with more variation in style. It looks gorgeous.

Hey, thanks for sharing all the info. I just bought mine from this website and I got the 3-6 days shipment and total was not so expensive.

WHy didn't I order it from there? Amazon.com had the japanese version listed for like 50 bucks! I'm tempted to cancel my order with amazon now (I bought the regular version).

Nope, if it's under 16 (not including shipping) then you don't have to pay anything. Or if you get it marked as a gift (which CDJapan will do) then it's 36. I always say to send it as a gift just to be on the safe side.


What does the dvd material have on it?

It's got a "live" video of Hammerhead which is actually just the studio version played over the top of some live clips. "Recording in Maui" which is just "Let's hear it for Rock Bottom" played over the top of some footage of them recording, it's not very long. And "Americana (1999 Home Video)" which is a montage of some old film with various Offspring songs over the top - some of it is funny, some of it is sick, most of it is just strange, lol. It's just under an hour long.

Fuck RapidShare up the ass. It's telling me to type in an 8 letter passcode shit when I can only type in 4 characters. Fuck it. Someone please just post them here.

EDIT: Fuck RapidShare. I had to say it again.

I don't really understand yousendit, but I'm uploading to megaupload as we speak, is that okay?

I don't really like rapidshare either when it comes to downloading, unless I happen to land in a "happy hour" and I've no idea when those are. It's nice and simple for uploads though.

I'll post the megaupload link when it's done (about 10mins)

I somewhat wish I hadn't of looked at them so I can be blown away when I get the album. :(

But I have to say that, from what I saw, the artwork is freaking awesome.

hahha, dude, you only have to put the characters that have a CAT on them. There are ones with a cat (that's sitting) and others with a dog (that's standing).

Fucking cats, they all look the same to me on the characters.

Yeah it's a nasty test. They want you to get a premium account of course...

Anyway: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=OVZQXGEV
Hopefully that'll work (sometimes the link doesn't work straight away)

:D what I do to differentiate them is looking if they are sitting or standing on four legs.
