Does the Magazine edition bring the album in a hard case or just the CD ?

It’s basically inside in a sleeve on one of the pages, you can tear that out and fold it into the cd “case” so it looks like a digipak...and yes the CD booklet is also included btw

Yes and no, you basically just tear a page and assemble your own thick paper "case", in digipak form, but you don't get a jewel case and all liek the regular CD package. You do get the booklet but if you buy the album itself you get the jewel case, a cover for that and a few extra stuff besides the booklet.

So basically no the magazine CD package is not like the regular CD you get in stores, but still pretty good with a cover u fold yourself

Here this vid at 5:18 shows u how the page with the disc and booklet looks like, and the person assembles it so it looks pretty normal

However, you'll notice it's not like the regular package that comes in an actual nice jewel case and cover like this:

Once u make your case form the magazine, the disc basically goes into a sleeve inside the case, while in the regular jewel case it just sticks in its circular spot for it

OK got it now, thanks for the videos, I held the regular jewel version on my hands but didn't buy it because I was heading towards the Magazine but it was sold out everywhere here in Portugal so I'm still waiting for my copy. :roll:

This album is interesting melody wise and production but at the same time soooo messy. Too many ideas going on at the same time.

Ngl on the first listen it was underwhelming.
But after several listens over the past 2 days I really love it now. Only 2/3 songs I would skip which I'm sure will grow on me when my initial favs get overplayed.
Also Delicate is SOTY!

First impression - No... But it's getting better and better. Anyway, I find the album overproduced. Not as much as ARTPOP, but it's a bit too heavy for my ears. I adore I Did Something Bad though. Defo my fave song on the album. Just love its aggressive beat <3 I also like Don;t Blame Me a lot, but I agree it reminds Take Me To Church. For me it's a mix of Hozier and Florence (esp. the "mmmmm" part + backing vocals)

Just listened to this and it's the disappointment of the year for me. I was kinda expecting it tho, i didn't feel any of the promo singles released. So far i only liked Delicate.

Delicate is the best song on the album along with Dancing With our hands tied.

So i bought this today cause bish didn't put it on Apple Music and first listen is done, and i quite like it. It's obviously not as strong as some of her other albums, but it's a nice pop record.

Still dislike the album cover... the back cover is so much better!

Great to see "Getaway Car" leading in the poll; there is still hope for UKMix :).

"I Did Something Bad" has grown on me a lot, although some parts of it are a bit annoying the chorus is great!

LWYMMD and "End Game" are very weak for me, always skipping them now.

Anyone else notice how in the Gorgeous making of video when she's trying to come up with lyrics she says my reputation precedes one of us but in the end those lyrics didn't end up being in the song

However, in End game she says:
Reputation precedes me, they told you I'm crazy

also future says: I got a reputation, girl, that don't precede me

So in the end the lyric content/idea didn't go to waste :P

New Year's Day is such an amazing track. I think it might be my Favourite from the album. Literally the song is so emotional and she just seems to completely bare herself throughout the entire song. My only complaint after a few listens is that the album doesn't have enough ballads, but it's still a great record that's up to her usual standards.
I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it ❤
