You haven't looked at the official store have you? I've bought fifteen and that isn't all of them.

I've counted 18 variants - 7 CDs, 5 cassettes and 6 vinyl editions.

Oh surely they'll WIN

Surely.

His last one didn’t actually sell the massive amounts expected did it? I have no idea the figures but I feel it ‘only’ did like 100k or something first week? So I’d assume by week two they should be laughing. And I’d think they’re going to do very well anyway, Sheeran aside.

Well I just pre-ordered the orange vinyl from evil Amazon.

I might get the eco CD box just for fun as well but I'm not collecting all variants.

That was the collaborations thing tho' this is the "proper" new album and the single has been no 1 since it arrived.

Abba will definitely do very well on physicals, given the breadth of the age group to whom it will sell.

Me yesterday: I cannot believe at the amount I am spending just to acquire two 1-track CD singles, this is insanity, between this and the deluxe box with bonus stickers ABBA aren't getting another cent from me

Me today: omg I really want the 4 avatars cover *pre-orders*

The CD singles only have one track?? Jeez, that's not impressive. Not even an instrumental?

I went for the HMV vinyl as I BY FAR prefer the cover and the yellow is cute.

At 27.99 however I HIGHLY doubt it will ever sell for more than I’ve paid for it* in the future though :D


*if you preorder on HMV and don’t use Paypal they actually don’t take payment until when the product is dispatched FACT FANS, so ABBA do not have my money JUST YET!

Yes, some of the coloured vinyls make no sense.

Well, APART FROM THE OBVIOUS :eyes:

Does vinyl really sound that much better? And if so, can anyone recommend a "player"? I quite fancy having my first listen experience extravaganza this way (and would finally let me put on my Dusty, Liza and Kate Bush LPs).

Vinyl doesn’t sound better AT ALL to me, and I love vinyl! It’s about the theatre of the vinyl more.

Record player quality very much depends on budget. And speakers!

It sounds 'warmer' but not necessarily 'better' technically. But to some I suppose that does make it 'better'. If that makes sense...

Limited edition Australian exclusive green and gold splatter version now for pre-order, although not released until next June.

I mean obviously I've ordered it, but I've yet to see a splatter vinyl that doesn't look awful.
