    So just like i found Add Violence on CD at a local Wal-Mart i went back again and checked today to see if they had NTAE and sure enough!

    $8 bones... same price as AV, not bad at all.

    I am thrilled to finally own hard copies of the new EPs.

    Thank you TRENT REZNOR you are the MAN!
    (Please realize that fans like us will starve for a CD.)
    Dude, cancel that order! Cheaper price here:

    That's exactly what I thought when I opened my copy up.

    I am not sure if anyone else has made a direct comparison, but the CD digipak is made from the vinyl packaging. The booklet is the record sleeve chopped up, lines up perfectly.

    The text on the front of the CD is EXACTLY the same size as the vinyl.

    I thought the opposite. To me it looks like a kinda funny Fuck you to cd fans. The label has "preferred version" blatantly redacted and the book is just the album liner chopped up so you can't even read it.

    You mean the label has "preffered version" blatantly redacted. Yeah, PREFFERED. Someone there doesn't know how to spell and is lacking spellcheck.

    Anyone from Canada have the barcode sticker on the digipack and not on the cellophane? The hype sticker is on the cellophane. I had the same issue with The Vietnam War with the hype sticker. This is not a jewel case, what is wrong with Universal.

    A "fuck you" to CD fans is a weird, passive aggressive way to go about things. Whether you bought the vinyl or were waiting for the CD, he got our money. In fact, since I'm guessing the majority of us bought the physical component with the digital download last December, he's gotten our money twice. Or three times, if you have to have every version available.

    much to my surprise i found "not the actual events" on cd & vinyl at my local record store this morning. also, the new vinyl versions of fragile & broken. the store has a cafe attached, & i usually grab breakfast there on the weekend. always go check the new releases & new used arrivals out. strangely, events is being distributed by universal, not capitol. of course, capitol may be owned by universal at this point. i've lost track. wonder if all this has anything to do with the whole sandman thing.

    Really impressed by how nice the CD package is considering it seemed like a fake listing for months and months. It's a really strong condensing of the vinyl package and you're not missing out on any details beyond Side B of the vinyl and black dust all over the sleeve.

    No stickers on mine.

    The f word is on both CDs but no stickers, however I've seen a number of other albums at Walmart that fit that criteria. Off the top of my head
    Prince - 1999 and 4ever
    pink Floyd - dark side of the moon
    Rolling Stones - exile on main street
    Led Zeppelin - presence

    possibly (probably?) others but I don't always know what's a censored version and what isn't. I know I've seen Pearl Jam cds that have Jeremy on them (I know greatest hits and I think Ten) but there's a censored version of that song so without buying those albums there I don't know what's on those versions). The examples are all older albums because I know there isn't a censored version of any of them

    Of course, if the CD was almost $ 20.00 I would have thanked for your advice. But I don't live in the U.S.
    Amazon charges Customs taxes upfront right away when shipping overseas.
    This ImportCD also states that ships with DHL that happens to grab things when stuff enters the country to charge taxes. (I hate DHL).
    I think, for me, CDUniverse is safer because I dealt with them already and it just came everything clear of taxes.

    Canadian Wal-Marts don't have a problem with stocking CDs with the Parental Guidance sticker, as far as I know. Still just about the lousiest place remaining in this country to buy CDs, but hey at least they still have them.

    It's just very satisfying to see Not The Actual Events on CD. I also know that I'm going to purchase it multiple times anyway, as it's just in time for Christmas shopping as well.

    And with a select few people I know IRL, I've been gifting the NIN discography right up to The Slip and/or Hesitation Marks over the past couple of years on birthdays and Christmas, so it's a relief to know that I can actually gift NTAE as an official copy alongside Add Violence.

    They might not have all turned into really huge fans, but just about all of them liked what they've heard so far.

    I know what you mean, if it wasn't for the fact that I literally asked for this for Christmas (my girlfriend was begging me for ideas, i'm usually really hard to shop for because I just go out and buy what I want when it gets released. Just so happens this came out just at the right time), but if it wasn't for me asking for it for x-mas, I'd be out buying a couple right now as gifts for huge NIN fans, one who said NTAE is some of the best stuff he has ever heard from NIN, another guy who is a fan, but I don't think he ever downloaded the new stuff, he's more of a physical release kind of guy, this would be right up his alley.

    I just picked up both EPs at a Wal-Mart in Calgary, Alberta Canada even though they never grew on me and I will probably only listen to them once to see if I still dislike them. Hopefully the old fashioned popping in a cd will help. I'm surprised NTAE isnt on Amazon yet but in Wal-Mart. Looking forward to enjoying the packaging though and adding them to my Halo collection! Please let the third EP be fresh sounding, quality NIN!

    I just found out earlier today while I was shopping at Barnes & Noble for the Criterion sale that they would have both CDs available as I'm getting them for my birthday next month. If I had some extra cash, I would get the NIN vinyls and a record player.

    Not The Actual Events

    Any sign of the NTAE CD having different color lyric booklets like the vinyl? I’ve only seen red so far.

    been wondering the same but have so far only seen red (including mine).

    also, i always save hype stickers from NIN releases and i accidentally ripped this one while trying to remove the shrink wrap -_-

    I don’t think so—all of the CD packaging is the LP packaging chopped up and re-purposed. If the LP didn’t feature different sleeves, then it seems unlikely the CD will have alternate booklet.

    It was just the PC that featured variants?

    Oh, wow! Well, I have two copies of the CD, and both have the red booklet.

    Thank you for linking those differences.
