Is there any way to tell...

Recommended Posts

The difference from a regular cd and one of those crappy Walmart edited for content cd's? I picked up a copy of Motley Crue - Saints Of Los Angeles at a used cd store and low and behold all the "fuck"s are blanked out. This is the third time that has happened. Is there anything in the small print that would tip someone off?

When I look at CDs in a Walmart, I always check the price sticker on the front cuz if it's a censored disc it'll say "EDITED" somwhere on that sticker.

 

Of course, if you're buying a used copy that sticker won't be there. Unfortunately I don't know if there's any tip off on the disc itself or the packaging.

 

....so I guess I'm not being any help whatsoever. :gone:

Probably censored out because Walmart's market is too general, they're afraid lots of underage kids might buy or somethin like that

Yeah I'm sure, but they should put some kind of note ON the actual inserts saying they have fucked with the artists music so you won't hear the fucks. Man that ticks me off. :cussing:

I always hated when they started up the campaign to add "parental advisory, explicit lyrics" in a black square on the album art. But at least that way you knew you had the real disc & not some watered down walmart piece of shit lol.

 

I believe you can search the bar code with google & it will tell if it's a censored version. I might be mistaken lol. I'd have to drag the one & only censored CD out I was unfortunate enough to buy out & check it. I've been pretty lucky on this. But that one bothers me none the less. I like the album but I'm not sure I like it enough to buy it again just to get the cuss words lol.

    • Excellent. I'm relieved as I thought some members here were all aboard the #metoo don't-dare-look-at-a-woman-because-that's-sexual-assault-you-misogynistic-creep bandwagon, and the acknowledging-that-a-lot-of-terrorists-are-muslim-is-so-fucking-racist bandwagon. But it's nice to hear you look beyond the basic "stats and lies" so hopefully we'll see no more politically correct "I love what the masses say; sign me up!" rubbish.

    • I'll give you one example. Tax cuts. Everyone loves tax cuts right?? and according to Trump every American got a tax cut in 2017.....but here are the facts - According to estimates from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, while most Americans will benefit at least somewhat, the top fifth of earners get 70 percent of the bill’s benefits, and the top 1 percent get 34 percent. The new tax treatment for “pass-through” entities — companies organized as sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, or S corporations — will mean an estimated $17 billion in tax savings for millionaires in 2018   Sorry that's just wrong. And this will add over $1 trillion to national debt. Tax cuts for people expire in 2025/6 while corporation is permanent. Hello austerity measures. Trust me that ain't fun as the UK has found out for the last few years after Labour almost bankrupted our country. 
    • by intelligent he means looking into things beyond the basic stats and lies which are generally used to gloss / cover up what resides beneath And yes Nordic Union will receive no more spins from me. Besides being one paced and generally dull the songs aren't helped by Atkins straining throughout. 
    • I like the song, country vibe or whatever it is. Agree with comments that it wasn't what I expected when I saw the pic. It kinda looks like 3 band members, and they didn't like the look of the 3 of them together, so they asked a sound mixer to stand in the background lol
    • And by intelligent I'm assuming you mean people that follow what's trending in hip circles without looking into things for themselves?  I'm Australian and give very, very little shit about US politics. But I still listen to things and I don't think Russ is alone in his opinion that Obama was a very poor president and that, whether you agree with his politics or not, Trump actioned more stuff in one month than Obama did in years?  Nordic Union album still sucks balls.
