Opiate Reissue arriving soon!

Word from nxrm in the forums today was that he received his copy of the Opiate 21st Anniversary reissue. His was ordered via Toolarmy, so I’d expect fellow soldiers to receive theirs in the coming days (or weeks if you are outside of the US). No word on if standard orders were mailed at the same time (I suspect some are still to be sent) – I guess we’ll find out soon. Here’s a photo he took of the item:

Here’s a link to a few more photos of the package.

Looks pretty impressive to me. Nice artwork all around. Should be getting mine this week or next.

The best thing about this release is that it made me go back and really listen to Opiate. Fucking amazing EP. Full of energy and that enthusiasm that can only exist very early in a bands lifetime.

The songs contain the DNA of everything Tool. People that actually like the band may want to give it a shot if Opiate has always been so-so in their mind. 21 years out, it sounds better than ever to me.

@kramer

generations prior to yours used to appreciate artwork and applied value to it. I know, its weird when you can just jump online and see artwork all day long, but some artist still exist, and rely on the old ways of recognition of art as a valuable commodity.

@ DRURY
Yeah man, I feel that…you mean like in art Museums and stuff when they do exhibits and serve those little crackers and stinky cheese. Artists gota get PAID!!!

“show me the money” So, tool basically had 5K opiate cds laying around…dressed up the little piggy and didnt even care to do quality control over the product. NICE! The best april fTools joke so far this year.

I emailed tool last night and they have already responded, in less than 12 hours. They apologized and said I could send it back but they weren’t sure when Adam could be back in to sign in it. Impressed

The more I thinkabout it though, I have a couple of them and almost just want to keep the one missing signature because it is special.

What would you guys do if it was yours?

i know its easy to get upset but i would at least give them a chance to correct their mistake before jumping to too many conclusions. i’ve always found them to be pretty good for making up for merch mistakes. i mean its always taken a long time to get things but anytime i’ve gotten anything that was a mistake they’ve fixed it. hell one time i didnt get an order form danny’s site and he actually returned my email and got it corrected. i understand being frustrated, especially when you pay that kind of money, but chances are they’ll… Read more »

I feel bad for the fella that didn’t get AJ’s signature because that’s what this really was all about.

i still have the original vinly I bought way back when. had to laugh when a reported “fan” bragged about “rediscovering” Opiate. really??? poseur alert…

the blank USB drive is a real head scratcher.

I may have to agree with the black light deal… Throw it under a black light and see if you find anything hidden. Also, are the thumb drives formatted? Is anyone trying on Mac and PC to see how it reads? It’s hard to imagine there’d be nothing…. maybe 5 of the thumb drives have golden tickets? Who knows? Everything was left so fucking vague. Again, I’m happy for those of you that are happy you bought one but I’m glad I didn’t… HEINOUS ATROCITIES…

I’d say get the damn signature… It’s not worth it to not have it. Black light every single case for those of you that have multiple orders. As for the USB drive… It sounds like it’s not USB at all? I mean… USB is USB from ver 1.0-3.0. They all look very similar. There is a possiblity there’s something going on there but for all of you to get nothing out of it… Hmmm… When you plug it in does it pop up and say something about the format? Or does the drive pop up and when you double click… Read more »

Personally I would want Adam’s signature as I’m a gigantic fan of his work and 1/4 the reason I spent that much money in the first place. I wouldn’t care too much about what “rarity” or any “profits’ I may make in the future off tool. That’s just me I guess, I haven’t posted my copy on ebay yet marked up at 300%, I am not too much of a fan of ticks and leeches.. I live in AZ and was just in Jerome last weekend, I could easily become a parasite on Ebay if I did not respect and… Read more »

Bunch of fucking crybabies on here acting like the band members should have showed up on golden chariots and hand delivered a package of perfection to yout personally. For those of you new to the planet or have not ever dealt with a company of any kind – SHIT happens, chill the fuck out. People have already had responses from Merch that it will be fixed, I haven’t heard too many complaints over the years about tool not making things right, well maybe a show in San Antoinio, but that’s it, so don’t shed too many tears having to wait… Read more »

Got mine today in Texas from the TA sale. No doodle or golden ticket but I still personally feel like I got what I paid for. Good luck to our fellow fourth eyers on getting a ticket. anyone in the DFW area that likes to hang and party message me I would like to meet some fellow persons. And hellboy you run the best tool site will be a paying member soon thanks for everything you do.

I think there are extra copies to make up for mistakes and items that get damaged in shipping. Tool cs said they would send me a prepaid label to ship it back and once it was scanned in transit they would ship me a replacement.

Obviously there are still some around.

Personally I am hoping I can just get my copsigned by Adam and maybe a doodle for the trouble.

Question for anyone who has already received their copy. How long from the time you received the email saying your order had been shipped to when it arrived? Where did it ship from? I received the email 2 weeks ago saying my order had shipped and I have yet to receive anything. I remember getting past orders from Los Angeles and I don’t live all this far away from there. Thanks for your help.

Email on 4/1 said order had shipped. Order status on TA says new. Bought early in the presale and still haven’t received my copy. Can’t say I’m surprised at this point.

another thing about this sound issue with the cd. if you have a audio program just open the wave files of the new and old cd in a program. just look at the wave files even. that will give u an idea if they are even slightly different. maybe they raised the volume a tad but chances are its identical to the original release. just saying u can look at the wave file and even tell by that instead of relying on just your ears

Here was the email I received from merch today:
“I believe there was a glitch in our automated emailing system because no packages were shipped before 4/02/2013. We didnt have them until April 1st because the band members were a little behind on signing all 5000 copies. Our systems show that your order hasn’t been shipped yet. So we will notify you via email with your packages tracking info as soon as it has been shipped. We apologize for the delays

Oh fuck. Have just realised that my address on the TA register is my old one. Severe oversight on my part – praying to Captain Planet and whoever else will listen that the people that live at my old place are: a) home when i get there this afternoon, and b) not arseholes.
Fingers crossed.

Has anyone contacted Customer Service about the COA’s not having the Seal? I’m curious what they would say and if they will correct that.

It’s tough to believe that no one (here or toolnavy), has gotten the “golden ticket.” I’m guessing that USB has something on it if you’re a winner. Then again, maybe they just forgot to put the golden ticket in. I got all five and only one had the seal stamp.
