Maybe that has to do with the US dollar totally tanking. And if your currency is stronger than our then that is factored into the exchange. Not sure what the Kronor is looking like these days though.

Nah, its not that. One year ago one american dollar was 5.9 Kronor, now it its 7.5 Kronor. So the dollar is doing better than the Swedish Krona. But hey, whatever. Money well spent Im sure of.

Preordered. Slightly less stoked than for "Sick of". Not to be interpreted as at all non-stoked.

Haven't pre-ordered it yet, was just checking how much it would cost. Both items toghether in one order would make 16 dollars shipping rate. The Euro is stronger than the dollar (a lot), but when I ordered The Ugly Truth it also came with 11 dollars shipping. Amazon charges around 5,50 for shipping to Europe. Ofcourse a small independent retailer can't compete with Amazon, but the difference is quite big.

Not trying to hate on anything, it's just a bit of a let down when you want to order a cd that costs 10 dollars and shipping is 9,20 (in case of Sick Of), so I wanted to make sure the prices charged weren't a mix up or anything.

Anyways, congrats on the new releases, both look/sound really sweet!!

We do our best to charge as close to what the USPS charges us for international shipping. If it's off, it's not by much.

Also, if it's of any consolation, a bulk of the items we sell are priced very low. Sometimes, so low that we make just enough to break even...sometimes so low just so we can free up some space. If we could start an international shipping service and increase our business we certainly would. Maybe in 2010. Can we charge as little as Amazon does for selling used items? No. But they're the Walmart of the internet.

Some guy hit me up today bitching about the bitrate of the free download. This is why I go to the gym rather than laying down in front of a train.

Enough about that though. I'd really just like more people to be aware of the music and the other artists on our site. Spread the news if you could.

Yeah, dont get me wrong, Im not bitching, I guess the shipment have gone up everywhere. I buy from this site because of the good prices, excellent service and of course, sweet stuff. Well, as you said, enough about that.

Damn, I just dropped like 80 bucks at the store a few weeks back, but I gots to have the new Sleep. Christopher was really a great album, and still high up on the list of my favorite albums released in the last few years. The production was top notch, and Sleep was rapping his ass off while saying thoughtful lyrics.

Thanks for the information, I was just making sure the shipping rates weren't some mistake.

Anyways, back to the music. Psyched about the new releases. Christopher was a very good record, and So Tired is still an amazing song. The new track sounds really good, and songs produced by Reanimator are always great, so this will be another great SFR release!

dumb question, just want to make sure: i got a $50 gift/rebate card when i bought my new phone. its got a visa logo and all that. im worried to use it anywhere cuz im a weirdo. will it fly with sfr?

to be honest, i wanna buy the new sleep at my local bullmoose to save shipping, but i want to support sfr and sleep straight up and get the autographed poster. i know i know, paying extra for impersonal ink from a regular guy is dumb, but i love sleep and want he and sfr to see the numbers and support and money first hand

I have no idea about that, but I'd have to assume that it wouldn't be a problem on our end if it's a regular Visa transaction.

Those Visa cards work like normal. Just remember that when you get to the bottom of the card (ex. $4.93 balance) you need to know the balance and have them just charge that much on it or it will get declined. It won't automatically deduct the balance and then leave a remaining total. It has to be down to the penny or it comes up as declined.
