I agree with Hajak and Valdemar on the bonus tracks. Like them better than their cd versions (except for Handful). What can we do to release them as a Flac download? Discuss this with Marian in a new chat? Or can someone upload the Vinyl bonus tracks??? Would be Great of this tracks became avalaible?

Regards!

Right ^^

But for the moment, I could buy the vinyl but not hear this four song because my turntable doesn't work (not longer works)

And I think, I'm gonna buy it to be sure I have once this 4 songs.

I think you missed the point. I bought both CD & vinyl to support my fav band but don't have any vinyl player. After some searchs on audiophile forums I came to the conclusion that lower price for a turntable wich don't destroy your vinyls is more or less 200€... Can't afford that.
The way I see it, putting exclusive vinyl tracks without downloading codes is an encouragement to piracy from the record company.
Of course nobody forced me to buy the vinyl, but c'mon, they know hard-die fans want each & every versions of songs (& some each & every objects). There's some hypocrisy here.

Some precision from the law in France (last time I checked):
_ perfectly legal to make as many save copies as you want of something that you own.
_ illegal to copy a copy-protected thing!!!
In the spirit of the 1st law of course copy-protected thing should be illegals!
Thanksfully, in France since end of WW2, we know officialy that when laws are evil it's our moral duty to disobey.

This being said, I'm very happy with the new release by AV. Love you guys!
Just still hunting for these 4 tracks in any ways. If that could come from Moonbase it would be great...

No need to have a big debate about this. The tracks are exclusive to vinyl because Marian likes this format and wants to promote it. I doubt the record company had much to do with this. And also remember Crazyshow which was a limited boxset that only some fans could buy or afford. So Alphaville a history of making rare tracks available to a small number of people. It doesn't bother me.

The vinyl tracks will come out in the usual places and no doubt people will hear them if they want it. As long as you are supporting Alphaville by buying one version of the album I don't see the issue.

Just be patient.

You have good points here. On the whole, wise words. I certainly don't want to make a big debate. Before that last post I had just written one sentence about it & intended to leave it at that.
I just couldn't let a crap post (pun intended just for the pleasure of punning Krapplund ) insinuate it was music thiefs talk, so maybe I over reacted a little bit & digressed a big bit.
So sorry about any disturbance in the Force.

I Always support AV got all records they released(I Think) but I am NOT gonna buy something
I cant play(not gonna buy a vinylplayer for 4 songs),
Of course they made this decision to make people to buy both a CD and a vinyl to make Money,
Sooner or later we will probably get our hands on these songs

I agree thats no need to discuss this anymore a strange decision has been made long ago,no matter what we Think about it.
