Karaoke versions! Take all my money!!!
To be fair, the team behind all this are probably exhausted and not getting much notice to set things up. Or double check things properly behind the scenes before us thirsty fans click "buy" in our droves. Mistakes happen W2K(aren)!
I think after buying 10 different versions of this album I have the right to be annoyed about something being missing, especially with other fans having issues too. Call me Karen all you want, Claire has taught me well.
Alerting the store there’s an error in something that’s been paid for doesn’t make somebody a Karen. There’s clearly next to no quality control as following the vinyl, the Lisa CD and now this, they’re willing to keep selling unchecked products to us so letting other fans be aware of that, as well as the service is a good thing?!
But the gap has widened from 1,100 to 1,500 and that doesn't fill me with confidence cos I really can't afford these right now.
If it was a few hundred in the difference I'd jump at them and worry about food later lol. But I feel like I'm bankrupting myself for something thats somehow STILL unlikely to happen.
Steps are famous for shoddy releases. I've noticed mistakes in MVs, tracklistings, tour DVDs and so much more over the years.
Example - The Ultimate Tour DVD lists a bonus feature that isn't there
The End Of The Road VHS sound drops out for a bit
The It's The Way You Make Me Feel single has the wrong lyrics for Too Busy Thinking About My Baby. They use the original version before Steps changed the gender
And so so much more
If you've bought the new digital bundles - don't forget to download the entire album - even the songs you might already have. You have to download 60% of an album for it to count.
The Lyricist in me doesn't like
"Warm skies are changing" in A Hundred Years Of Winter
If warm skies are changing then the skies are no longer being warm?
Surely it should be cold skies are changing. As the cold is changing into something warm!
Me obviously reading way too much into it.
Back O/T I'm still trying to find a way to download these for it to count in the charts. Haha
Dannii Minogue found working in the Jive art department.
It seems like the Signed vinyls are being shipped tomorrow.
So it al depends on how many they have done.
It will be a close one never the less..
They've got it right more times than wrong though.. I just think in some instances, people could exercise a bit more patience and lighten up. Its a pop music forum.
Maybe they’re shipping at the last minute so then the Manics won’t know how many extra copies they’ve sold and won’t be able to pull anything from up their sleeves as it’ll be too late?
You can download Take Me For A Ride Acoustic as an individual track. Sounds great - it's more guitary so makes a bit of a change from the other acoustics they've done.
Hope this works for them.
Would've totally bought another version for some video content/performances.
Remixes and Instrumentals aren't my bag but fingers crossed it's the push they need.
I'll keep streaming to try and help the Australian numbers I guess, lol.
Yes they've just added it, can't wait to hear it!
W2Karen got a reply from the Official Steps Twitter account so I don't feel as bad now.
And to think, had you not messaged them, they may not have jumped on it so fast. So thank you for doing that.
W2Karen came through!
Fair point. I only hope so.
But there is a song on the Manics album which is Abba inspired. So will listen to that...next week haha
Whilst we are on the topic of downloads.
None of the exclusive content is correct for the individual CDs, should it be? I was thinking of raising this too.
I really hope that To The One still makes the tour.
The single that never was.
