    Can somebody post the "notes" for each song if they come in the book?

    Pretty sure it's just an artbook. Since i saw a smaller booklet in the Digipak on the video.

    Is the smaller booklet one of the two booklets we already have?

    Thank you. It would be awesome to read stuff like that especially for songs they never gave us insight on like BITS

    I was actually really really disappointed with the special/limited edition. I loved the M2M special edition. The "Making of" DVD was really in depth, the artwork was amazing, it had little notes about the album making process and each song, and you had removable art that you could frame/hang up etc.

    The ATS limited edition has no notes, the making of DVD is available for free on Hulu, as is the music, and the art work wasn't done by anyone in the band. All of the art looks like trippy hippie art that you'd find done by some amateur art major in a community college. No song notes, nothing. And to top it off, the big selling point is 2 vinyl records, which is cool in theory, but what the hell am I going to do with them? I'm willing to guarantee that 1% of the planet's population owns a record player that will play vinyl.

    Sorry if I'm coming off like an asshole, I loved the CD musically, but I'm just really regretting dropping $100 on this thing and waiting a month for it. It's just....I don't know, it's just a huge let down for me personally.

    For me, it's totally worth the money.

    1) The artwork is FANTASTIC. Amateur art major my ass, the amalgamation of animals, objects, and people that comprise the cover of the Deluxe Edition, the Art Book, the vinyl, etc. are pretty fucking dope. Many of the pieces have direct correlations to certain songs, as the art pieces were made while the song was being written.

    2) Hardcopy of DVD & CD > Hulu and online downloads.

    3) If you didn't want to waste money on the vinyl, why did you get it in the first place? There are plenty of audiophiles in the world that still enjoy the warmth and quality of vinyl records, myself included. And while yes, "1% of the planet's population owns a record player", what percentage of the world actually BOUGHT the Deluxe Edition? Exactly.

    I agree with Minus, it's definately worth it :p

    I'm still waiting for mine to come, when it does I'll post my own video too for you. I'm in the UK though so I'm not surprised it's taking long XD

    Yeah, it's awesome. Also, don't want to take credit or make it seem like I'm bragging, but I know it was taken from here, as we were the only site to credit him by his full name, much like the Facebook post. It's awesome and I know Evan is very happy about this. Good times. :lol:

    Just got mine today! It's looking amazing so far, and the DVD was brilliant.

    Answer to the booklet: It's the same one as the CD/DVD Digipak, and also has the same LPU card too. You can find the booklet in a slot behind the CD's cover.
