Uhhhh 18.98 is standard retail price for major label CDs these days. Doesn't mean it won't be $9.99 on release day.

I bet the $18.98 version will be a DualDisc with the Walking Shade video and maybe a couple other things.

Or maybe he will be doing what 50 cent did, where if you get that gold piece of paper, you win a ghetto diamond necklace.

You should go back and actually READ my post. I didn't say I PAID 18.98, I said that it was standard retail price.

In the music business, CDs are set at an artifical retail price. Then, distributors/stores get "free" copies thrown in when they buy a certain number of copies. This way the record company can rip off the artist by saying that they only "sold" X copies, when in fact it could be a multiple of X.

Very few stores actually sell at retail. Sometimes places like HMV/FYE/Virgin Megastore will have retail price marked on their CDs, and then put them on sale.

As I said in my post, it will probably be 9.99 somewhere, like at Best Buy. No, I wouldn't pay 18.98. If you look around at Amazon.Com, though, you will see that many of the newer releases show as list price 18.98. Green Day's American Idiot was one that I noticed listing at 18.98 when taking a quick look.

Good thing that the market forces prices down far below what the record companies would charge for them.

I have been first to buy every album Billy has been a part of at the Mall where I live, from MCIS on.

I would preorder...
but why not add yet another first to the list?

I wonder why Amazon still hasn't updated the cover image yet. They seem to have been a slow adding Corgan's album. After all there is tons of albums coming out after June 21st that were added sooner and with a picture. Doesn't sound like Warner is pushing distribution too hard for this.

Or maybe Billy and the record company are having second thoughts about the album cover.

I suspect they'd probably sell more copies if they removed it.

the cd isn't 18 bucks! if you pre-order it from amazon or whatever then it puts in tax + shipping. most all online cds go up to $16 17 18.

if you buy the cd after its come out its only 15 bucks like normal
