Isn't true? How so? The new songs are Reel 1 (Diary) Reel 5 (blood) and Reel 6. Those are the new songs... Remixed tracks, book of pictures I could get using google, and a few cheap merch items to jack up the price? What a joke! The glossy tops it off.. Send me 60 bucks and I'll shit out a few tracks for you, remix them in logic, and give you a special glossy that says "hey dumbass, you just got F'd in the A" ***No refunds. Act now or I'll charge your dumbass more later.. It's a bit insulting. They should at least offer the tracks at regular price (.99 each), then if they wanna dupe people, more power to them. But nowhere on the front page of their site where they're pushing this thing do they give any options.

I'm not trying to troll or anything. I'm typically not negative, nor one to voice a negative message, especially online.. But when I excitedly read the caption of the new EP, I was appalled to discover the way it was presented. It seems (with the exception of some artists who genuinely offer fantastic packages (NIN, The Rentals, Placebo to name a few) many just use the "bundle" as way to throw some cheap products together to make the money back that they feel they lose on piracy. Thank god there's no toy car, or fuzzy dice included in this, but still all or nothing is insulting to fans who honestly support them. This goes not just for AVA but for any artist who does or has done this in the past. I'd rather they just put a paypal donation link permanently on the site then try to rip me off. I figured that maybe, just maybe I'm not only one who feels this way. I'm not going to drag this out.. that's my say, so at least take it into consideration before you give these guys too much money for far less than it's worth.
