[Introspective] Yes = Poor Manufacturing

Erm, well, when you take away the sealing plastic of a digipack, you
*always* have to be careful. Digipacks are obviously more fragile than
jewel cases.
But if you do it carefully, there's no problem.
So if you tear or damage the sleeve, it's just your fault, not EMI's.

This sleeve is maybe fragile (once again, like *all* digipacks, no
more) but it's extremely beautiful. The images are stunning. The only
problem with "glassy" black covers is they retain fingermarks (that's
especially the case with Closer to heaven or Disco 3).

But on the other hand, black's more beautiful than white...

And then. Stop being so pissed about details, when you get such
wonderful music to hear.
After all, if you dislike the packaging, you're not forced to buy the
object anyway : downloads are available for people who can't handle
delicate packagings properly.
