Imported CDs were shipped with broken case
« on: February 01, 2005, 09:17:32 pm »
A friend and I from Germany ordered the album some time ago and we both got it with broken jewel cases. The CDs itself are working, but still it's annoying. Anyone else made this experience?
I know that Machinae Supremacy cannot likely be blamed for this; still I wanted to let them know...

The pictures are not very accurate, but I think one can reckognize the dents and scratches in the plastic.

The likelyhood is that they were damaged in transport, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have been sent to you in that state.

It's always damage in the post. The amount of time you hear complaints on eBay about cracked cases. It happens, mail services aren't the safest processes; what can ya do?

First i was stunned that they put this music online free for everybody to download it.
Very cool by the way, props for that.

www.emp3.com

There you can download your music too via douwnloads in a [parent dirctory] folder thingy.

Well, this was how i got to know machinae supremacy.
I didnt even look at the site !!
When i did i decided that i liked this band very much.

Mine came cracked as well. It's a bit of a matter of luck I'd suppose. Unfortunate, but as Radicz says, getting a new jewel case is quite cheap.

Mine got lost. Neil sent it, but it never arrived. So he sent another one, which did arrive and showed no signs of damage. It's safely in my CD rack now (I play everything from hard disk, since I have no CD player).

AFAIK, the mail handling machines they use transport mail at 50 km/h or so, so it's not that amazing that things get damaged now and then.

Both of mine were cracked...
I'm glad it was just the case.

I've played it in a stereo once or twice, but it's so damn unpractical having to move from the computer...
