No boxed cover for this album in Norway. We have received confirmed information that a poster was included with a few early copies. The title is now outlined in white to increase readability and the bandname is in a slightly redder shade of purple than in Britain. The cover is laminated and the Vertigo logo is much bigger, too.
We now also received the message that the mysterious inner sleeve as seen in the German section .
For some unfathomable reason the Norwegians decided to change the light blue of the lettering to white and to transfer the logo from bottom left to top right. Does this make any sense? It's a fold-out cover, identical to the British one, but laminated.
Quite a surprising cat.nr. here!
