View Full Version : Real or Fake?

I just got the limited japanese edition from ebay and i'm wondering if it's real or not.
Reason? no barcode on the back or anywhere for that matter... :sad:
Here are some pictures

I'm pretty sure it's real. I saw it once in a German music store. There's also an entry for it on Discogs, http://www.discogs.com/%E3%83%80%E3%83%95%E3%83%88%E3%83%91%E3%83%B3-%E3%83%87%E3%82%A3%E3%82%B9%E3%82%AB%E3%83%90%E3%8 3%AA%E3%83%BC/release/2381703

Thanks guy! Although I'm still questioning the decision to not put a barcode. I can picture store clerks in Japan swearing under their breath when they had to type in the product code on the first day the album came out.

Those pics...definitely real.

Yep, that's real. The Interstella cover is the Japanese edition of Discovery.

Thank you for all the confirmations! I'm going to treasure this one

Don't worry, it's real :) My friend has this edition, and I don't think it has a barcode (?)

I think I will have to buy this special edition

further confirming that it's legit. it's a recent Japanese reissuing of Discovery. the Interstella picture is a cardboard sleeve, underneath the sleeve, iirc, is the standard album art in the jewel case. an earlier release had the Crescendolls with their native blue skin tone. this one with them as humans was recent, sometime in the past 3 years or so. (i get a weekly email from an online Japanese music shop, and remember being notified of this re-release.)
i'm guessing the issue with the barcode is because it would be on the jewel case itself, which is covered up by the sleeve.

awww and i was hoping that it was first pressing. I guess I'm going to have to release it of its factory seal and listen to the japanese bonus tracks.
Edit: No bonus tracks.... my canadian enhanced version sounds better too... *sniffle*
