W2MN iTunes bonus track/video removed

Post by elnombre » Fri Sep 09, 2011 2:50 am

A week ago (and up until last night) the Deluxe edition W2MN was up for pre-order on iTunes Netherlands. Like other territories, this had A Bad Situation, We Gotta Get Out Of This Place, the commentary track and the I'll Bite Your Face Off video listed, and a total price of 14 euros 99.

Now it's release day here, the commentary and video have both been inexplicably removed from the listing and the remainder of the album is only available for purchase as individual tracks at 1,29 each (bringing the total cost of getting the album with 2 pieces missing to 20 euros + change). Doubt they'll be selling too many of those. Here's hoping other territories don't suffer the same fate.

Sounds odd, they are still listed on iTunes here.

That's a polite request not an order

I wonder if this means that you only get a bad situation if you pre order?

Bad Situation is still there. It's the video and the commentary that have disappeared, along with the ability to buy the full album rather than just individual songs. A mess, basically.

I think Itunes is a complete disaster.

Good for you, this thread isn't about iTunes in general (a 'disaster' thats made billions of dollars), its about the fact that the item that I know personally several dozen people pre-ordered has had tracks removed from it and the pre-orders are now not being fulfilled.

The physical sales over here will likely be pathetic too, I was in the city this lunchtime (release day) and out of MediaMarkt, Free Record Shop (two of the biggest chains in Europe), Bijenkort and Kroese, the grand total of inventory of W2MN was one single copy of the standard edition CD in Kroese.

As for online CD purchases, despite listing a 09 September 2011 release date, the best BOL.com (the Dutch equivalent of Amazon) can offer is availability in 2-4 working days as they are apparently still awaiting their stock.

I'll be amazed if it charts at all over here.

Itunes maybe a disaster but sadly its the Present and the future. offering lower priced albums and exclusive content just furthers the end of CD. 220kbps oh yeah


So far the US site is still showing all the content. Either way I have the Vinyl on 1 day and should get it Tuesday. As well as the Itunes and fanpack. My get the Best Buy CD given they get engough copies of the exlusive one. saddly there CD section is almost gone. replaced with Itunes, Napster cards

Dang, looks like W2MN won't even be available on iTunes Canada. I tried purchasing the bonus tracks for your store but it won't allowed me to. How am I supposed to purchase those tracks then? I already have the fan pack coming but the completist in me wants the rest!

Only thing I can think of is the album will drop on Tuesday for Canada itunes. I can't imagine Canada would be excluded. As i don't even see it on amazon canada yet either.

I would dispute the purchase with your credit card company. If the prodct wasn't what was advertised you should be able to get your money back.

I agree with that, however knowing Apple they probably have some clause on there somewhere reading "Contents subject to change at any time".

Just got the iTunes version of the album and for some reason it says it was released in 2003! iTunes delivers... But the bonus track is fun, not quite as good as under the bed which in my opinion is right up there with the best from the album.

Came out today on iTunes Canada after all. Still debating whether I should pay just to get A Bad Situation and the Dialogue thing considering I've already purchased the fan pack...

I just downloaded the album from iTunes US.

"A Bad Situation" is pretty good actually. Not a bad track yet to be found on the album and bonus tracks apparently.

I think its a worthwhile purchase, specifically since the dialouge of "how they came to be" is 25 minutes long. Then you have we gotta get out of this place which is 3 minutes and a bad situation which is around 3+ minutes...Plus the video so your looking at around 35 minutes of extra bonus stuff

I confirm that "A Bad Situation" is only for US versions. I just got the album on iTunes, Switzerland and it's not there.

I hope that all the extras will be made available at some point.
