My copy now is stoped at customs. I have to pay customs dutyJune 8, 2018 at 15:03 #32070RolfParticipant
Anyone else here from Norway who ordered the box to be sent by mail? Have anyone received it? It's been over a week since release and I haven't gotten mine starting to get a little worried, and there's absolutely no information about shipping on funde.no or the mails I got from them.
I've sent a mail to them inquiring about the situation, but I thought I could ask here as well to see if I'm the only one or if this is the case for everyone.June 8, 2018 at 15:35 #32071ThorEgilParticipant
Received a tracking number before shipping, and got the box June 1st.June 8, 2018 at 16:08 #32072
I got mine on monday. No tracking in advance, but got an SMS from Posten when it was ready to pick up at "mail in store".June 8, 2018 at 17:41 #32073TraktorBassParticipant
Received mine today. Ordered from Platekompaniet. One corner dinged during transport. Disappointment. Went and got a replacement (in store).
Coincidentally (or not?) I bought a new turntable today and sold the old one off. New turntable is defect, doesnt spin, spin, spin. Disappointment.June 10, 2018 at 14:05 #32074
A Boxfull of disappointment.
I ordered the CD Box (84,-â‚¬), Shipping (42,-â‚¬!) and now custom costs on top (28,50â‚¬). About 155,-â‚¬ for three cd's and some books in Norwegian – that's really hard.
Send on 31.5 in Norway, arrived in Hamburg on 6.6. and today the letter from Bremen Custom.
Never again!June 10, 2018 at 22:37 #32075nicootParticipant
Is this a stupid question or am I the only one that's received 3 "unbound" books inside the cd/lp box? It's basically just 3 stacks of loose sheets of paper, not bound as books. Is that on purpose? Although I can't read Norwegian, even if I could, this wouldn't be really easy to read on the go. Sheets of paper flying everywhere and all. Besides that: beautiful (although slightly damaged) package!June 11, 2018 at 04:57 #32076ThorEgilParticipant
Stacks of loose sheets it is. I guess that's the readon why nobody has commented on the book yet. No, I haven't bothered about it either.June 13, 2018 at 17:51 #32077
Got my box last week. It has been as well damaged by transport and/or due to bad packaging. Nevermind; I complained to email@example.com and got assured a new (empty) box. However I seemed to be the only one complaining about it so far and I think its a good idea to give some feedback about packaging, customs etc. The books are a disapointment and practically unreadable.
Good lesson though since I got reminded of my own collector greed. Also getting a bit tired of all the pre order special editions that many times get delayed due to overbooked pressing plants. Missing the times when I would happily come home from the local record shop with a bag full of vinyl not knowing shit about 1st press, special editions, RSD and collectors reissues. Guess Vol. 5 makes me forget all about what Iâ€™ve just written.June 14, 2018 at 17:29 #32078kjellepelleParticipant
Love the box, the 2 cds, blu-ray and the triple lps exceeded my expectations. The book was just an add-on for me anyway and it will stay sealed for the time being.June 17, 2018 at 17:46 #32079pfnueselParticipant
Should I be worried, not having received anything so far?June 18, 2018 at 09:08 #32080mister conclusionParticipant
My package is currently lying in some customs office far from my home because the guys from funde.no/ccrecords were not able to change my address after I moved to another town. Sigh! Don't know if this will ever get solved. Frustrating, that is.June 19, 2018 at 23:00 #32081The Other AndersParticipant

Anyone here who does not need the 2CDs/Blueray, and who would want to sell it for a modest price similar to the price such a release would have, had it been released separately? I ask because of a special situation. Any help will be greatly appreciated, also just the CDs including cover.

I suffered the same "high expenses" effect as Westbeam73, but after picking up the box at customs (where it lay for more than two weeks before I got noticed) and for the first time having the CD Box in my hands, from the very first moment I was sure: it was worth the money, because it is such a wonderfully created gem, that I was somehow even content with just staring at it
I really appreciate and love the whole artwork (besides the stunning audio and video recording of the concert) and the box is an absolut eye catcher in my "music room"!
Nevertheless I would really love the book to be translated to English, to finally "understand" the whole box as it was intended …
