this is the original link with the release date of 9/18.

however, as the album became out of stock, amazon put up a new link with the release date of 10/4 as they wait for the second batch of the albums to arrive from korea.

i have emailed amazon to ask whether the orders get reported to Nielsen / counted for BB200 when ordered or when shipped, and they replied with this:

>"I know the whole situation.

>I extremely apologetic for this inconvenience....

>I've checked all situations and simultaneously talk to escalation team about this.

>Please try to understand as a retailer we are heavily depended on seller or manufacturer for the availability of the item. In this case too we were highly dependent on the manufacturer for its availability. So that we could have immediately delivered this item to our customer as specified on release date delivery.

>But due to the heavy demand at the last moment, the manufacturer pulled out his hand on its availability and we came to know this particular situation at the last moment...."

i wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that bighit's officialshop also went out of stock? it would make sense if amazon is getting their supply directly from bighit. i'm just speculating, though.

Link to OST album on amazon(you can trial listen to the first 45 seconds) instead of Youtube.

For exemple Kill la Kill OST

u/dimsim3478 · 12 pointsr/FLCL

"Crazy Sunshine" and "Ride on shooting star" can both be found on the FLCL No.3 soundtrack CD. You can buy the CD from some sellers on who will send it to you from Japan!

u/caitsith01 · 7 pointsr/VinylMePlease

So this is less than $17 on Amazon, and for an international customer I am basically paying $40 to have this sent to Australia. Apparently with no sonic upgrade, just different colour/packaging...

Time to pick over the same 20 disappointing swaps again, I guess.

u/neightwulf · 6 pointsr/nintendo

> a recording hasn't been made available yet

There's a CD+DVD coming next month featuring a "30th anniversary concert" -- not sure what the tracklist will look like, but it's the only legit professional recording of any live Zelda music coming any time soon to my knowledge.

Available for pre-order at Amazon Japan and can be shipped to the US.

u/prayedit · 6 pointsr/KillLaKill

amazon has it. It's an import so a bit more expensive, but free ship

Haven't heard Molko's cover. I also haven't heard of Brian Molko. to the youtube. Have you heard Seu Jorge's for the Life Aquatic soundtrack (in Portuguese!)

u/MrBradd · 3 pointsr/vinyl

This entire album is 20 minute tracks taking up 2 records you want epic?

u/Dealjobber · 3 pointsr/vinyl

I got lucky on that whole thing. I ordered 9 albums and they only cancelled one of them.

Look around on amazon, there's some good ones for cheap. Don't know if you're into jazz, but there's Thelonious Monk going for cheap. I'll post some others if I remember that I got cheap:

some cheap Sonny Rollins

phoenix album for under 16 bucks

Earthless - Rhythms from a Cosmic Sky. Kickass Jam/psych album, one song per side, but both awesome

some black keys for cheap. rubber factory and chulahoma for 15

some tool going for cheap. Especially Undertow and Opiate

Can't go wrong with Miles Davis

There's a few more cheaper ones from him as well.

u/PM_ME_YOUR_INNY · 3 pointsr/VinylMePlease

Amazon has it for 15 bucks at the moment. Not pink, or detail that VMP gave their version, but the option is still there.

u/dragsaw · 3 pointsr/KillLaKill

Amazon japan has it at it should ship to the US, shipped to me in Australia

u/lbabinz · 3 pointsr/zelda
u/kuenx · 2 pointsr/Music

I'm looking for it too. I think it might be Cambodian or Vietnamese (I have no idea). I didn't find it but I came across this cool playlist and this CD (you may know this melody).

Well, good luck. If you find it please post it here.

u/mynxiemel · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon




Candles are awesome cause I am a Candle Freak :).

I do think it is super amazing that you make your own candles

u/JonasRH · 2 pointsr/listentothis

Wow, I thought the sound of the YouTube video (to which I linked) corresponded with the track found on the Dengue Fever Presents: Electric Cambodia release (which collects originals as selected by members of Dengue Fever). It seems that it does not, so thanks for bringing it up. However, the similarity of the song in the YouTube video is still overwhelmingly similar to the track found on the aforementioned collection, with regard to the vocals, musical style, production quality and so forth. A preview can be found here:

Do you agree?

u/Rav_Badger · 2 pointsr/anime

This month has been the first month I've really started to buy anime things.

u/wellcast · 2 pointsr/VinylDeals

Freight added to Germany would be similar to what is found here. In Rainbows [Vinyl LP]

u/Lilla__My · 2 pointsr/zelda

I placed a preorder on December 15 for this:
On January 31, I received a message from Amazon telling me that this one was available:

I do not know if the ticket holder is considered as a first press bonus or another kind of bonus, but the limited edition CD box is the same – cdjapan were the first to show the bonus.
I didn’t like this way of doing things, because the price of the new reference was about ¥1,000 higher for a bonus – normally a bonus is free… and my first preorder was made 45 days before.
Apparently, it wasn’t a problem for customers, since the following days the new reference was marked as the #1 Best-Selling of the category, so most people changed their preorder.

They implemented a kind of loss leader strategy – they still gain money though –, knowing that many would willingly pay more later; they’re clever at Amazon Japan…

All of this to say that you probably paid less money.

u/Infinity-Kitten · 2 pointsr/AnimeOST

Amazon. Just so you know, I'll be jealous.

u/Keatonfuchs · 2 pointsr/bangtan

About Amazon: PLEASE make sure you don't buy from a reseller!

THIS is the official German link:

It isn't "imported", so you can get it fast, cheap (Prime even) and it counts for our charts!

-> I know on Reddit we like to look down on stan Twitter, but this kind of information has been circulating there even long before CB, so I really recommend to check in there at least occasionally to stay up to date. <3


I pre-ordered mine at my small local MediaMarkt, they stocked it on 15th April already!

With small local stores you can always check on their store finder if they stock it (not guaranteed!). If they don't have it, make them order. :P If you go to bigger stores (say Berlin Alexanderplatz), they seem to stock a whole BTS arsenal including the "Notes" books in several languages. :D

I know that MediaMarkt/Saturn and Müller have it, but I wouldn't be surprised if there are more. Especially now that it has been in the charts for so long. Several stores have some promotional setup for chart albums.



Small anecdote about version choices: They have one product code for all versions and the MM clerk tried to get all 4 on hand so I can choose, but they only ended up with 3+4. I wanted 1 or 2, but decided to get one anyway to make sure my sales count for the first tracking week. We barely missed #1 album though. TT

u/spengineer · 2 pointsr/KillLaKill

You can buy it here. I highly suggest checking out Hiroyuki Sawano's other work, he was the composer for KLK and has done a ton of other awesome music.

u/jameswarrensaid · 2 pointsr/bangtan

I have a quick question - sorry if the answer is obvious, but I've googled around and can't seem to find it.

When I go to preorder Love Yourself: Her on Amazon, it shows two different formats - one has a release date of Sept 18 and is sold out - the other is available and has an Oct. 4 release date.

Is the October 4 the date Amazon expects to have more in stock? Or is this a different version? The descriptions are the same for both. I've never done this before so, again, sorry if this is obvious to everyone here.

u/napmonsters · 2 pointsr/bangtan

Here's Bighit's official link to the second batch! Yeah, I don't think anybody saw that coming - or at least I didn't see it coming. I kind of thought they would have enough for everyone who wants to buy one.

u/xDedalusx · 2 pointsr/vinyl

That 2-disc version sounds absolutely amazing. All analogue mastering. Silent Vinyl. And of course the music is the stuff of legends. I fell in love with it when the CD came out in 1997, and this great pressing makes it sound even better.

If you are really enjoying the Cuban vibe enough to want (a lot) more, it might be worth checking out this upcoming 5-lp release called Complete Cuban Jam Sessions. I’ve had the chance to listen to 4 of the 5 lps in that boxed set, and while they are less polished than Buena Vista Social Club the set is still a great slice of Cuban music from the late 50’s- early 60’s. I'd wait for a price drop though. $99 is a bit too much for this set, but I have already seen the pre-order discounted a few times.

u/LevitatingMoose · 1 pointr/VinylCollectors

Oh, usually it's around the 16 dollar range

edit: I was right

It's only 17 bucks brand new, also Rome is only 13.77 on Amazon right now and Madvillian is only 13 bucks. I'm interested in those titles but your price is way too high.

u/jaybird404 · 1 pointr/VinylDeals

This is on the UndergroundHipHop (UGHH) site. They have flat shipping rate of $2.99 for unlimited items. I saw a number of other items on there that caught my eye.....lots of off-the-beaten-path electronic, funk, soul, jazz, world, etc. If you'd rather go the Amazon route, it's available there for $29.99 w/ free Prime Shipping.

u/TaylorsCDC · 1 pointr/SNSD
u/photo4jin · 1 pointr/bangtan

Amazon Canada stocks it, and it counts for official charts. Preorder was $28.97 and I've seen the price drop to $26 a few different times, so if you keep checking back you might be able to snag it for that price.

u/maingey · 1 pointr/recordstore

try some Fela Kuti


Also this compilation

u/HashidaSuzu · 1 pointr/KillLaKill

If it helps you, there is just one left in amazon right now:

u/obillion · 1 pointr/movies

loved the movie. If you really want to get a feel of the soundtrack don't just get the OST this will really get you to appreciate the david bowie parts of the movie. absolutely beautiful.

u/MasterWizard · 1 pointr/fnv
u/CakeSmack · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Edward Scissorhands, Chocolat, or Lord of the Rings. Pretty much anything my Danny Elfman or Howard Shore

u/TheWayoftheFuture · 1 pointr/AskReddit

I can't narrow down the songs and movies to 5 but I think I can take a stab at the albums. The links go to Amazon. In no particular order...

  1. Kind of Blue by Miles Davis - It works in every situation. It makes me feel like I am out in nature. Just that feeling of being able to breath deeply and you think, "this is where I am supposed to be."

  2. Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd - It's so timeless. If this album came out today it would be hailed as innovative and fresh.

  3. In On The Kill Taker by Fugazi - The energy. The passion. The emotion. When I need to get pumped up, this album does it for me. I can hear the first notes of Facet Squared just typing this.

  4. A Fistful of Film Music by Ennio Morricone - My favorite film composer. This anthology is awesome from top to bottom and I could listen to it all day.

  5. Highway 61 Revisited by Bob Dylan - I was introduced to Bob Dylan way later than I wish I was so I feel like I am making up for lost time when I listen to him. No one makes nonsensical lyrics make so much sense like Dylan.

    I could survive on a desert island with these 5 albums and never want for music. I might want a power supply though.
u/diriaka · 1 pointr/truezelda here's a Amazon US Link there's a standard edition for 33 on there too
