Notes

The band expand their breakthrough album with demo and early live versions of all songs on the album, plus never-before-heard material and other rare nuggets, as well as the full 90-minute concert played in Reykjavík on the day the record was released in 1999.

This super deluxe 7 x vinyl limited edition comes with a lavish book of photos and material from their early days, and is housed in a bespoke linen-bound box, the first 1,999 copies of which are numbered. (The number appears on the first page of the book under the 'fetus angel'.)

7 x standard weight LPs, plus 84-page hardback art book in linen-bound slipcase.

My favorite album ever and I missed this. What was the original retail, and are the bonus LP's worth it? I may have to breakdown and get this.

Did anyone get a download code/link? I contacted customer service, who said that a download is not included, which I find very surprising.

I have noticed a flaw on L2 Ágætis Byrjun (Demo 1998) at 1m 13 secs anyone else noticed the sound qaulity change as though it skips, but actually the needle isnt skipping across the vinyl at all......

Slightly irritated reading some of the comments here. My copy is without any visible flaws, the book is unharmed and the stamped number inside (000776) perfectly legible. All the discs are there, so I assume they also contain the music promised by their labels. However, I haven't yet played any of them. Does anybody else notice any pressing issues? At that price I'd expect nothing less than a perfect package, and if not so, customer service should react properly and swiftly.

Received mine today. Was one of the first to purchase, immediately, as soon as the announcement was made. Even told a friend to purchase one after I made my purchase. His arrived #10! Mine arrived ... NOT NUMBERED AT ALL. So pissed and devastated.

haven’t played my copy yet but the number which appears to be ink-stamped is illegible. i can’t tell whether it is 1037 or 1087. otherwise a glorious package.

Lol. Just got my copy yesterday. The packaging is absolutely bloody gorgeous. I mean, it’s not worth £150 but it’s bloody nice. But flicking through the book, I found page 39/40 was torn. Like, torn in half. And the torn half completely missing.

Then, I was checking the discs and found my version had two copies of the 3X LP rarities and no copy of the 2X LP Live At Íslenska Óperan 1999. I’ve emailed their customer services and waiting for a response.

This seems to be a complete shambles of a release. Anyone else have these issues?

UPDATE: They sent me another one pretty quickly. This one is all present and correct I'm glad to say. Overall, their customer service is pretty great. I'd beware of anyone selling an unopened copy on the collectors market, as there may be a chance of receiving a faulty one like I did.
