My point was that I was only able to listen to the music and see some artwork after release, and for me the moment had passed by then. When the preorder went up there was no artwork or music. I liked the idea of the Super Deluxe signed graphic novel but wasn't going to spend £130 on it without seeing some artwork, particularly as I hadn't seen any of the artists' work.vitekm wrote: ↑28 Oct 2021, 19:19You can see some of the artwork and hear some music before ordering, right? Or you mean some special features exlusive to deluxe or super deluxe version?.PaulG wrote: ↑28 Oct 2021, 12:50One of the reasons I decided not to order was the rather ambiguous information. I love the idea of the project and was interested in the deluxe or super deluxe but I couldn't justify it to myself without at least seeing some of the artwork and hearing some of the music. The way it seems to have been handled has put me off even more.
They've been sharing some of the artwork on the official Blur facebook page but that's only been relatively recently and, for me, it's a bit uninspiring. I've also listened to the album a couple of times on Amazon Music and whilst some of it's great there's a fair chunk of it that isn't really to my taste. To be fair I'd probably get into it if I listened a few more times.
I don't feel inspired enough to buy the softcover graphic novel and album download so there's just no way I'm going to fork out for either deluxe edition.
