It's got a certain charm to it.

by the time the album actually came out, i was way past giving a shit about any of it.

I was thrilled to actually hold the CD and vinyl in my hand. I woke up early on the release day, thinking there'd be a line of fans wanting to buy Chinese Democracy, and went to the nearest Best Buy store only to find out it wouldn't open until 11 a.m. No damned way I was waiting any longer than I had to, so I drove to another Best Buy that opened at 10. I got there right around 10:02 and thought, "Damn! All of the fans must already be inside!"

I parked, ran inside, and ... I was the only shopper.

I walked over to a big display, picked off the first CD and LP copies, and went to the cashier in a daze, both because Chinese Democracy actually existed and nobody seemed to care.

It was like looking at a U.F.O. that everyone else ignored.

That's a funny story. Yeah, I woke up and was going to go asap, then I thought the lines etc. So I watched the Eagles game (it was a Sunday release, wasn't it?). Game was pretty bland so I went at halftime, expecting a big event & celebration. I don't recall specifics but I think the CDs were just there on an aisle end cap or something. Probably a sign was up but no excitement or mention by the cashier.

Odd. Again I went around 2-3pm but I think others had similar experiences. I think there was more/better hype for Contraband than CD.

.

Same thing happened to me. They had none of the displays up. Best Buy did not handle the roll out professionally at all.
