    I just wanted to post a little note to al of my fellow HT/Music lovers that might be interested in picking up the Megadeth "Peace Sells, But Who's Buying" DVD-A. Although I sincerely doubt this will happen to anyone else, it happened to me...

    After a couple weeks of searching, I finally found this disc at Fry's Electronics (for only $14)! Later, after I had excitedly scooped this release up and got it home,I made the grim discovery that there was *NO DISC* inside!!! What the hell is up with that?!?! [​IMG]

    Although the people at Fry's are going to take care of this, they were pretty skeptical (wouldn't you be?) but I will still be without a disc, that I paid $14 hard-earned dollars for, for several more days at the very least. To top it all off, I have to travel the 35 miles back to the store to get it!

    Although this is probably an isolated incident, DTS gets a big [​IMG] for quality control from me!!! I really hope no one else has to go through all of the hassle. I suggest opening the disc up while you are still at the store, if you are purchasing from a "brick and mortar" shop. You can never be too careful....[​IMG]

    There are instances of things like this happening to DVDs manufactured by and for Universal, Disney, Fox, etc. so I wouldn't get too burned up about it.

    I had the same thing happen to me. It's no big deal, just exchanged it for another copy.

    Jason,
    Your mood may not improve when you actually do get the disc. A few of us have posted that the mix could use some help. The 2CH mix was very nice though, plus it has 2 videos and an interview that make it worth the purchace. Do a search for Peace Sells to find some reviews. Hopefully your experience will be better than mine. Let us know what you think of it.

    Phil

    Phil,

    Thanks for the advice [​IMG], but I already saw a few reviews. Anyway, this is a personal preference thing, but I never liked Mustaine as a vocalist, so I am not too worried about his vocals being a bit difficult to discern. As long as the mix doesn't take too much away from the rest of each track (specifically the guitars), I will probably enjoy it to some extent. I would really like to see a release of "Rust In Peace", as I enjoy Marty Friedman's playing quite a bit.

    Thanks again!!!!
