50 Words For Snow - UK First Issue CD Release

I have absolutely no idea if 50 Words For Snow has been reissued or not since its original release back in 2011, but if it has, you're looking at the original first issue UK release of it.

The packaging on this release is similar to the standard and deluxe versions of Director's Cut. Although I'm not entirely thrilled with the packaging, I do like the hardcover book look of it. It beats digipak packaging any day.

The one thing that irritates me about this packaging is the built in card pocket for the CD. It's an absolute pain to get out, not to mention that the bottom of the pocket on mine is already ripped through (good thing I have another sealed copy). Oh yeah, did I mention that the back of the CD is scratched up like crazy since the pocket is so tight that the CD rubs against the back of it like crazy when you're spending an hour trying to get it out. Just like with Aerial and Director's Cut, this is another poor packaging idea.

The entire packaging has a very stark quality to it, which includes the CD and the built in booklet. I'm not fussy about the built in booklet idea, but I'm not going to complain too much about it as it is very flexible... unlike the one that comes with the deluxe version of Director's Cut, which barely opens at all. It would have been nice if some of the promo photos had been included as well.
