Yes, 5 or 6 bags, stacked together like Matryoshka dolls.

my first ed came in perfect condition, haven't had a chance to get the second ed yet though. any breakage on the jewel case is most likely caused by the shipping as well, so mbd can't really be blamed.

They were broken from inside.

Ahhh... a CD so powerful it attempted to break out. Rather uncommon.

As many will understand cracked or slightly scratched jewel cases is indeed a problem but not just for Music by Design but every other mail order company out there.

We bought in more expensive packing bags hoping to rectify the matter but strangely though they were stronger they seemed to make the situation a little worse, so we've reverted back to the old style.

We've considered packing in box like material and that would slightly improve matters but would double the costs of postage and packaging and with price being of primary concern its not feasable to change it.

I think to charge £6 to ship to the USA for example would put many many people off buying.

Ref: I don't understand. How were they broken from the inside? How could you tell this?

Neil: I think the general theme is that many will buy the 2nd print along with the new album. So you'll just have to hang on in there on that one.

I had a look through the list of titles a while back. One's that caught my eye were The Black Mages, the Guilty Gear X CD  ;D, and even the Worms 2 soundtrack lol.

Unfortuately these will go on the "things I will buy when I have a job and a stable income" list. :'(

It doesn't really bother me too much. It's not the CD that's damaged, nor the leaflet. It's easy to just change the case.

And anyway, half of my jewel cases get broken by myself at some point.
