Was it a full record or just a sleeve?

Complete replacement, with everything. Again it was shipped with the record inside the sleeve so must have received a little more TLC from the postman this time. So I have 2 now.

Very exciting. Though I do wonder what that means for the Ltd edition number. They haven't asked me what mine was... did you get the same number replaced like for like?

Hmmm..... a limited pressing sells out, but replacements are available.

Hold my cynicism, someone...

It does bring up some questions but...i guess they must hold a few back for different reasons. Like it would be too easy to expose 'limited' items when they are numbered like this one is (assuming the replacements are also numbered..?)

My first one was #760 and the second #1584

A few years back I got a now long deleted title from an indie label that was legitimately only produced in limited numbers - about 250 IIRC. It arrived very badly bent, so when I sent them photos of it, they shipped me a spare copy but made sure it had the same number on it... I therefore have one to 'play' (the bent sleeve) and one to keep as pristine as possible.

Universal haven't asked me for the number here, so they've either kept a small handful back for problems, or they've got some unnumbered ones run off. I'm kinda hoping it's the latter tbh as that'll probably be more special in years to come.

Thanks! Very intriguing indeed... not received my replacement yet so hopefully it'll show up soon enough.

I've emailed them twice now and not even had a response from them.

I haven't received the picture disc at all. I have emailed the store and I wrote them that other people got theirs in about a week. I've been told to wait.

I think that when I send them an email again their answer will be that they are sorry, but as this was a limited edition they can't help me. I am happy for Newearthmud that they have sent you the disc again, but it feels kind of strange...
