(compared to RGW's WW) I also have not just a CD-R

but also the worst artwork pressing on the disc.

Inlay & Booklet is perfect but the most important part of this release, the CD itself, is done in the worst way possible... (ordered on amazon 2 months ago)

What dose it say on the bar code on the back of the CD inlay? If it says manufactured by Amazon then it should be CD-r: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wonder-Woman-1984-S-T-Zimmer/dp/B08QC3SHSV/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=wonder+woman+zimmer&qid=1622206800&sr=8-1

Mine does not say that.

importcds through Amazon Marketplace. They must have received a recent handful of pressed copies and not know it.

Interesting case. WaterTower should let the market know if they make regular pressed CDs now of this score instead of the CD-R version. I'd buy a pressed CD any day but don't dare to order it again because there's a chance I'd receive a CD-R again.

I ordered from amazon and got the same exact thing T.J. Turner has.

OK according to Alliance Entertainment, the owners of ImportCDs, they have a partnership with Warner and have '13,384 Manufactured On Demand (MOD) titles on compact disc directly licensed from major and independent labels' along with
'in-stock specialty Audiophile formats such as SACD, SHM & Blu-spec. My guess is that it is a CD-r, it just does not have Amazon wording because it is not manufactured by them. If it says SACD on the CD then it might be a fully pressed disc.

A professional pressed CD has a barcode and some other text in the inner circle, a burned -r.. well.. not. Here a direct WW 1984 comparison

T.J. Turner, I stole your picture. I hope you are ok with that.

Maybe WaterTower began to press CDs when they saw the CD-R version sold well? We should get an official info on this, until then I don't risk ordering the same CD-R again. (As a matter of fact, the CD-R version is OK, booklet and al, still, a normal pressed CD would be even better considering it was probably my favourite score from last year.)

Hey I'm glad I got a pressed one but this is still alarming. I'd hate it if pressed CDs become "...like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get".

How do people not know what a CD-R looks like?

Mine just arrived from CD imports and it is the one pictured on the left. One cd says cd 1 of 2. The other says cd 2 of 2 and has barcodes. I have the cd and cdr’s of Little Women and Tolkien for comparison and they show the same differences as the pictures above.

I've mentioned this before, but if you have a PC with a CD-R capable drive (rarer and rarer these days I know), you can download the freeware program called ImgBurn to see if a disc is a CD-R. Just put it in the drive and use the 'Discover' section of the program, and if it's pressed it'll call it a "CD-Rom", but a CD-R it'll give details, including who made it and some stuff.

Note it MUST be a CD-R capable drive, something that can't burn them won't be found by ImgBurn.

For those who have the CD-R version, was authored as “disc at once” (like most CDs where there is no extra gap in between tracks) or “track at once” (2 seconds of silence are added in between each track)?

I received a live Huey Lewis CD for Christmas about a year ago and I guess recent “pressings” are CD-R. However, whoever authored the disc did so as “track at once”. So there is crowd noise at the end of a track, then 2 seconds of abrupt silence, the the crowd noise at the start of the next track. Repeat this 15 more times for the duration of the CD. Just to make sure it wasn’t a mistake (or a bootleg) I exchanged it for another copy on Amazon and ordered one on Deep Discount (both with the same 2 second gap results).

My CD-R has the 2 sec gap between the tracks.
