$10 is a bargain as it probably costs them $13. But even in the US shipping is high -- WITH the discount for two $20 albums it was $39....compared to the usual $1 for three albums at Moviemusic.com it's not a huge savings, though I still did it because hey, it's a sale...

Yeah, seems like prices have gone up in the US too. I've sorta been accustomed to paying around the $5 mark (less without jewel case, a few bucks more with it) for CD's from the US -- which was about half the price of Norwegian postal rates. Now they seem to be evening out. In fact, sending a CD from Norway to the US is currently at $9 (excluding envelope), so actually lower!

Ordered THE UNKNOWN KNOWN now. Surprised that shipping has become as steep at $10 for overseas for a single CD (that's Norwegian prices), but I guess that's the going rate these days. I buy CD's far too rarely.

While that sucks, it's nowhere near as bad as what third party sellers on Amazon are now charging to send cd's overseas to Australia from the U.S. Up until late last year it used to cost around U.S.$6.50 for one cd but since then the price has risen to about $14-17. That's just via plain old standard international shipping, too. If the shipping is fulfilled by Amazon then it's only $7, but the amount of sellers that have their shipments fulfilled by Amazon is a tiny minority.

I've also seen some ebay sellers charging as much as $24-42(!!!) to ship one cd to Australia via priority mail.

Jesus. Titty. F@cking. Christ.

I feel your pain. I live in Canada and it's about $13 for amazon US resellers to ship here and we're on the same damn continent! Pro tip: I've been ordering a lot from Amazon.co.uk. The prices on many items are comparable to the states and shipping only ends up being about $4 to Canada. And you're totally right about the ridiculous eBay rates too. Lately most of my used/oop purchases have been made through the board here where people are more sane.

Never mind the flood of releases out on the market these days - the increased shipping costs are the number one factor cutting into my soundtrack purchases these days. If rates go up again by as much as they've done in the past 3 or 4 years, I'll probably end up giving up on physical CDs altogether for the most part.

Chris.

No, do NOT blame the sellers. Amazon sets those prices and every single CD seller has the same shipping. The 'fulfilled by Amazon' thing is a different issue but for those of us who don't sell as a business it's not worth it.
And really, don't blame Amazon either, because the actual cost to ship them is indeed up there -- a 5oz package to Australia is $12.75.

Yeah, I figured that it's Amazon that sets the shipping price. I should have worded my post differently. Was just having a bit of a vent is all.

I agree with these frustrations. There's something off-putting when postal rates DOUBLE the price of a CD. Especially when the offer from LLL is so great -- $13 for the UNKNOWN KNOWN CD with the 20% cut-off is absolutely wonderful, and then the anti-climax comes when shipping is added. But hey -- what can you do?

(sorry for derailing this into postal rate issues....just needed to vent a bit).

I bought a couple of CDs from 1M1 down in Australia back in 2005 or so and was gutted to find the shipping price was the same as the CDs I bought! Only did it that one time, since they're the only label to put it out. Never again!

Anyone want to attempt a chronological breakdown of LAIR?

Anyone want to attempt a chronological breakdown of LAIR?

I'm not sure it's possible, at least to do one that is definitive. The Main Theme is on the start screen, the Main Menu at the level selection, Love Theme plays during Training, Rohn's Theme plays when the game is paused. Several pieces, or very similar sounding equivalents, creep up multiple times, with subtle differences depending on the situation -- a layer of percussion will be added or a theme will be played by woodwinds instead of strings. It would also require intimate knowledge of the full breadth of the gameplay, which probably isn't too common.

The closest analog would probably be to refer to the game's Concert Hall mode, which was unlocked after completing the game (or, like myself, obtaining a completed game save file so that I could access it without subjecting myself to the tortuous gameplay). That track order roughly followed the progression of levels and cinematics in the game, but it also is subject to some very unmusical edits and splits.

My best guess, using my memory of what little of the game I managed to play, watching the cinematics on Youtube, and the track listings for both the game's Concert Hall mode and the iTunes album:

Lair Main Title
Lair Main Menu
Prologue
Diviner Battle
Funeral Pyre
Love Theme
Blood River
After Burners
Steam Giant
The Guardians Decide / Prophet Battle
Bridge Battle
Desert
Rohn's Theme
Serpent Strait
Darkness Theme
Reach Mokai City
Firestorm
Rohn Is Tricked
Elegy
Diviner's Theme
The Last Straw
Lost
The Search for Water
The Holy City of Mokai
The Search for Food / Campfire Discussion
The Ice
Breaking the Ice
Mokai Camp Attack
Deadman's Basin
Hope
Mokai Theme
Return to Mokai City, Pt 1
Return to Mokai City, Pt 2
Ruins of Mokai
Bridge of the Ancients
Defenses Overrun
Maelstrom
Final Attack
Lodan
Battle for Asylia
Epilogue

The Preparing for Battle cue on the LLL release is unfamiliar to me, but it could remain attached before "Maelstrom" and still make dramatic sense. As I mentioned earlier, a lot of the music wasn't meant to go in just one particular spot in the game. In fact, many of their order changes are fine because they break up similar sounding cues; the largest oddity to me is putting Breaking the Ice as the second track, but it's bothered me less every time I've listened to it and I assume that I will grow accustomed to their ordering eventually.

Any guesses as to what La La Land's 300th title will be? The Unknown Known was 1298 and The Stepford Wives is 1299, so the 300th title can't be far off...
