"How can we justify making people pay $500 for this 5-LP set of bleep-bloops?"

"Find the cheapest synth you can find and ******* it in each package."

"We're still overcharging by hundreds of dollars. People will figure this out."

*looks at hat* "Throw one of these in each one too."

They're including a cheap synth so you can recreate the experience at home, or just jam along with the records.

I have one of those stylophones. It is $21 and crackly. Fitting for this hustle.

Wait until Universal sees the demand for these. They will kick themselves for ever shelving the Machina reissue.

If we all chip in, we can buy Billy one of these for Christmas so he has something to store the records in.
C'mon, it's the least we can do.

Flashbacks to standing outside Hard Rock Live waiting to see Zwan and tourist keep wandering by asking me what band was playing. At one point Matt and Paz were standing right behind as I was trying to explain it to someone. I always thought they must have felt like shit hearing "Billy Corgans new band, you know the Smashing Pumpkins guy." endlessly.

Still so odd that there's no price. So, what do we think this will run for? $200?

I've bought 3xLP sets for $30, so this will probably run around $400

If I remember correctly, the AEGEA record was reasonably priced, but that was just the records. The fact that Corgan decided to throw all this excess stuff into the package shows he plans on gauging any fan who will buy it.

The price is so ridiculous. Europeans would pay over 500€ including shipping and taxes!

Man. That is EXPENSIVE. Very curious to see if this sells out. And naturally, you'd be looking at throwing in some looseleaf tea to try and win that little record player because one of a kind, etc - so with shipping, you're a few good steps above $400.

I think in 2016, you could probably rank the last few bastions of die-hard Pumpkins fans that would buy something like this. There really aren't THAT many places for SP fans to hang out and obsess over minutia anymore. Three or four (pretty quiet) Facebook pages, the Reddit, and this hive of scum and villany.

Let's be real here, gang - is anybody going to buy this?

This is a shame-free zone, I get it: I bought Agaea, remember?

I wanted to buy this, not because of the music ... I wanted it as a collectible, but 506,50 € (538$) including shipping and import taxes is so overpriced - I´m out. If I would pay that amount of money (and I could afford it), I would feel ripped off. By they way: many other people will think that way. The box is online for an hour and they sold just 70 copies. The first Aegea pressing was sold out within 5-10 minutes.

yeah, this just screams of overt consumerism. i'm an avid collector, but i will be passing on this one. this is not what christmas is about for me anymore, and i have to admit, it was in the past.

i simply don't want it. i don't want the "music" on it, i don't want the hat, i don't want the toy synth (whatever that is), i don't want any tea. i don't want BC's autograph.

i do want $375 to stay in my pocket though. the raffle is a very smart idea, so good luck to all who are playing. maybe i'll pick this up on eBay in 10 years for $50 or something.

So this means the Metro show is going to be released as a six vinyl, 10 CD set for $2500, doesn't it?
