Just chased the Universal Music team as I've not had the notification of shipping after 10 days... :?

Any luck yet? I just got my shipping notice earlier this evening (although there was another item in the same order holding things up)

I received my replacement this week and it’s completely ripped at the bottom. I give up!

Also got a shipping notification on the replacement this week... here's hoping it isn't ripped!

Spoke too soon. New one arrived and the sleeve is basically wide open down the side. They seem incapable of shipping these in good condition!

Mine's going up in value as it's possibly the only one in existence with a sleeve in good condition!

Surely the sleeve could be sourced elsewhere? You'd only need to transfer the sticker over.

The sticker was also damaged... shonky.

On the bright side, it might be a mispress...

Now received my third copy of this from Universal Music. Yet again it's damaged - outer sleeve torn, hype sticker damaged and this time there's a bent corner, too. Literally no idea where they're finding this stock and why it's all bust... and why they can't just replace the outer sleeve instead of repeatedly sending me discs. I'm thinking at this rate they might send me enough copies of this picture disc to pave my garden... :D
