What a crap shopping experience.
- item does not appear on web site, only via email link
- existing account not accepted, must create a new one, even using the same password.
- Clicking Buy Now only turns the button to grey.
- I have no idea if I managed to order it. Tried both CC and PayPal. No confirmation email. No confirmation message.

I don't know if I should try again, or will I wind up with three?

EDIT: Finally got through third time. PayPal, Edge browser.

Thank you so much, fellow NYC boy! Ok - insane but I can’t live without it so might just as well go ahead and order it now then!

Over €43 incl P&P and because of Brexit 21% VAT will be added plus a customs fee of €4-10 depending on the carrier the shop will use (unclear until you receive the invoice from the customs department).
A pass for me in these expensive times, €60 for a 4-track CD in a paper sleeve is simply too much, as I do not care about the book. I can live without it. Artist stores are no fun anymore.

PITA ordering experience, finally got confirmation on the third go. Looks great, four new tracks and potentially themed like Agenda too.

Didn’t send me email requesting password re-set so had to set up new account. Pretty straightforward after that. Got immediate email confirmation of order. The Face article is one of the best ever written about them imho. Look forward to reading it again.

What a hideous website to order from.

Clicked the button to buy, nothing happened, no confirmation email, no confirmation on the screen.

Yet a pending transaction of £30.99 on my debit card

why do they continue to use these ghastly useless people….

Greetings,

International postage to Australia was a bit of a killer - I rationalised it by thinking of the book as the "purchase price" and the CD as the "postage price".

But after giving the previous edition a miss due to the lack of a CD, it looks like I'm back on the Annually train.

Retro. :)

After using 2 different browsers, 2 different email addresses, and 2 new passwords, I was unsuccessful in creating a new account this morning. So I gave up and tried later this afternoon and using Chrome was able to log in with the new account credentials I had registered with earlier today. I successfully placed my order. I received a confirmation email and took screenshots of the transaction. I had intended to purchase 2 copies but 33£ for shipping was just unacceptable. Also, it looks like the expected delivery time using the new tracked shipping is the same as the previous standard shipping. I'll take my chances on ebay if I still want another copy.
Cheers!

I’m not able to order in USD while I’m here (I don’t have a VPN), so the only option is to order in euros which would cost 29 euros + shipping of over 25 euros. Has anybody in the US ordered and what is the price in USD for Annually + shipping? Thanks!
$56 ($25 + $21 shipping)

£31 seems steep. Can't be long till they sell their catalogue to top up their pension fund.

ugh....everything's always months away. I wish they would do what happened with the last EP. I woke up one morning and there it was.
