    Agreed, although it arrived in just one layer of bubble wrap with the labels directly attached. No box or mailer! Both discs had split through top of outer sleeve. What possesses Amazon to send stuff like this??!? For the price, I can't be bothered sending it back. I was a bit wary of this, as the reviews aren't stellar, but first play as I type this and it sounds great. Solid album, sparkling production.

    I really don't get their logic; mine came in the standard cardboard mailer and was well protected. It's as though some guy just grabs he first packing material they can and get it away.

    Same album, same deal and same packaging for me. Looks to be okay, taken the vinyl out and looks great, havent played yet but will now do as priority tomorrow. Rather bemused too.

    I've noticed on occasion, at the very last stage of checkout there is a box that says "This item will be sent in packaging which reveals its contents...." And you also get the option to select "Send in Amazon packaging" instead. This might be part of the answer to why they don't consistently send out in a mailer or box sometimes? I've been caught out once or twice, so I make sure if that option pops up I always select Amazon packaging.

    I agree, I have the marble swirl version - it sounds tremendous.

    Sorry if this was discussed previously within the thread. I did a search and came up with nothing.

    Can anyone explain to me why I can no longer order from Amazon.uk here in the states? I'm always showed the lowest price via a 3rd party seller when using my US shipping address. I've had this problem with Amazon.ca for a few years now (I can't understand why EVERY OTHER Canadian retailer will ship to the US but Not Amazon). Is this Brexit related? If so, why would the US be excluded from their shipping locations?

    Any explanation would be greatly appreciated.

  20. Amazon US has an agreement in place with its sibling companies. It is solely to keep the smaller Amazons viable in their own country.

    But what baffles me is the inconsistency in such an agreement as I can order with ease from Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.it, Amazon.jp it's merely the UK and Canada where I get the "we cannot ship to this address" (USA). Why just those 2 territories?
