We will respond to this:
The mp3 player sucks--although it works, there's constant hissing in the audio.
Yes, it sucks. But we couldn't afford $40 players for a $40 box set. The 20 NFS custom, unique ones do have $30 players. But if you order this, the player is horrid. So why? You plug the SanDisk card into it, you plug it into any computer with the USB cable provided, then use the player to copy the musick off the card. Then give the MP3 player to a kid or keep it as a free SanDisk card reader.
The 3" disk with drivers did not work for my drive; I had to dig out an old cd-r card reader from my closet to transfer the tracks to my laptop... and this took me quite a while!
Sorry about that. The 3" drivers came with the MP3 player... and are worse than the player, which is awful. Please see above about how the player is really just meant to be used as a SanDisk card reader. We'll try to get that on the Web site, since no sense in wasting time! We tested the player - as a USB SD reader - on Windows 2K/XP/Vista and Mac OS X, and it was/is plug & play for us.
Some of the tracks sound "raw" and unedited, like they were recorded out of a small garage with a bus parked nearby.
Absolutely. We didn't want to "produce" or "master" these. They're orphans, and we felt they should be left alone. YMMV.
The box definitely looks homemade and put together with scissors and glue from someone's bedroom.
Also intentional... and yes, most were assembled whilst laying in bed watching TV. Couldn't agree more. The 20 unique ones - those we spent a lot of time on. These we wanted to look "hand-made". Why? Just to be different.
The band suffers from an overactive spaced-out, possibly drugged-out, imagination. Their fans likely suffer from the same, and therefore their reviews should not be taken seriously.
Over-active? Check. Spaced-out? Check. Drugged out? Not so much any more, but check! And should we be taken seriously? No. Please, no.
What else... there was the "free pubic hair" that wasn't mentioned... the photos aren't printed on a "photo" printer, and could be better... the "manifesto" - pompous... but worth reading if only to see that "self-promotion" is not part of it....
Oh, and beautiful, wonderful photography on the front/back by Henk Zwerring, not by us. His work is brilliant, and sharing it with us was very kind of him. Most likely the best part of the box, frankly.
Lastly, we suck. Stink. Blow chunks. Horrid. Total morons. Really, we won't debate that...
We love feedback, positive or negative, of any sort. We're impossible to offend. Tell us we suck? We'll tell you how much more we suck than you thought. So thank you everyone! Cheerio! A
