The deluxe edition of this album deserves 5 stars without question. The diecut outer sleeve and multiple inner sleeves are tremendously creative and fun, the printing is beautiful and the overall design, fascinating layout and attention to detail are top notch! The text swirling around the diecut holes on the inside of the outer sleeve are a fun little detail, and the splatter vinyl is gorgeous!
Unfortunately, I'm leaving 3 stars due to the fact that it took 4 attempts to get a copy of this beautiful record to me without damage. Between poor packaging that left the outer sleeves dinged, dented, damaged or seam split and the download card being packed IN AGAINST THE RECORD leaving the vinyl surface visibly and audibly scratched on 3 of the 4 copies sent, it was a ridiculous struggle to receive an undamaged copy of this beautiful album. The tremendous thought and effort that went into the creation of this beautiful package made it that much more frustrating every time a copy turned up damaged in another easily avoidable way.
Thankfully, between the 4 copies sent, I finally have a single copy that is reasonably unscathed. Hopefully Musictoday/DeliveryAgent have learned from this and will endeavour to do better in the future.
