new tool album

So. I went into town today (such a long walk) and bought the new tool album, 10,000 days. I can't yet give a review because of the following :

I am attempting to rip it at the moment, but it's being a bit troublesome. phobos's CD drive makes Very Strange Noises Indeed (clunk clunk clunk whirrr clunk x lots) when I insert the shiny disc into it, as does one of ganymede's. It's doing a close approximation of being ripped with ganymede's second shiny disc player, but I keep getting fatal errors, starting with track 4. I don't have a dumb CD player, because I've not really seen the point in having one yet. Besides, I'd have nowhere to put it. I've tried it in my cheapo DVD player and it actually manages to crash it!

I'm not sure whether this is because it's not really a CD, but is one of the evil copyprotected things that look remarkably like one, or maybe it just was defective? Who can tell, in this day and age when music companies intentionally ship defective products. Neither the packaging nor the CD have an actual 'Compact Disc Digital Audio' logo on them, or a warning. Is it worth trying to take back to Rockaboom for an exchange/refund?

I suppose this is the universe getting back at me for teh smug (this is the first CD i bought after posting that, you see). Beware of teh smug. It bites back.

On the upside, I can report the packaging is quite neat. it includes stereo glasses through which to view the booklet and stuff.

    Does anyone fancy coming along to these things? I bought extra tickets on the basis I would try and persuade friends to come along with me. So,…

    Peppa Pig is in the news. I still can't work out whether the artwork of this character is a brilliant attempt to introduce young children to cubism…
