    To me, Digibooks / Mediabooks are the gold standard for CD packaging. Most people don't use them though, so Digipaks are also acceptable. I want to kill anybody who does jewel-cases though, which is sadly, the most common packaging.

    Digibook / Mediabook:

    Digipak:

    Now I believe this is the kind of packaging Captain is complaning about. I generally like it, though it looks like his copy of Trust Fall (like my copy of Tame Impala's Currents) is the weird, ugly looking kind. IDK about his copy of Dark Side though. There's also a type of digipak that mimics a LP gatefold which I really like.

    I hate jewel-cases with a fucking passion. They look awful, and break incredibly easy. On more than one occasion, I've ordered CDs (brand new) through Amazon, only to find them already broken when they come in my mailbox. I try to avoid them as much as possible. As a collector of music, they make my CD collection look like shit.

    @Gibs - my Mylo Xyloto came broken, and I can't get over that. I'm always tempted to buy a new one.

    Can't stand Digipaks. They break and get messed up without you even touching them. It is terrible. Give me Jewel case all the way

    I don't know if it's the same, but the one I'm complaining about is just a cardboard package with a slit to shove the CD in. I love my Digipak copy of Stadium Arcadium.

    I don't know where else to ask this, so... is the physical edition of Deafheaven's new album a jewel case or digipak? :) If anyone has picked it up, or seen it in the store.
