    @jessy: the left one (white) is the regular version without the dvd, and the right version (black, with rainbows) ist the special edition with cd and dvd. πŸ˜‰

  3. Jessy on September 13, 2010 at 9:45 am

    I want it! I want it! I want it! xD

    I’m sorry for the stupid question, but…
    what’s the difference between the both versions? can someone tell me?


  4. linkinparkette on September 12, 2010 at 12:54 am

    the rainbow is on the cd right? or just from the light?

  5. urpn1c on September 11, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    how do I get the special edition?

  6. simona93 on September 11, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    NIIIIICE. Makes me hyper-excited to finally buy my Special Edition copy. It’s like being pregnant – I already love love love the CD even though I never heard it yet XD πŸ˜‰

  7. brox2lp90 on September 11, 2010 at 1:13 pm

    Did you have to pay for both of those? Lol, jk! πŸ˜› Really can’t wait to see you guys perform for the VMAs tomorrow and can’t wait to get my copy of the CD/DVD in the mail! ❀

  10. masshysteria95 on September 11, 2010 at 6:12 am

    I’m going to buy the cd+dvd version, I already preordered it in a local music store here in Olbia! (italy)

  11. my4okfanlp on September 11, 2010 at 3:48 am

    Mike, I prefer the black cover. She is very creative .. fits the theme of the magnificent album.

  12. dorito82 on September 11, 2010 at 1:33 am

    Why isn’t there a parental guidance thing on the special version? Seems odd… The cover of the special version is beautiful, but the cover of the regular version is pretty awesome too

  13. jagta on September 11, 2010 at 1:30 am

    Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh! ~dies~

  14. chsirish73 on September 10, 2010 at 11:36 pm

    Though I know you just got done with this album, I am so excited to see what you guys will come up with on the next one. The experimental direction you guys are going in with sounds and song structure is fantastic. Also the album is great. I’ll be seeing you guys for the first time the next time you come through Indy. Hoping that wasn’t the place that you got pink chicken in the Midwest, but I wouldn’t be too shocked.

  15. plissandro on September 10, 2010 at 10:52 pm

    3 DAYS!
    in 3 DAYS I’ll buy the regular version hehehehe
    anyway, special edition looks cool, do you know if will it be released in Brazil?

  16. AldA on September 10, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    I want them! πŸ˜‰

  17. thedarktonik on September 10, 2010 at 10:47 pm

    YOU GUYS ROCK!!! This album is AWESOME, but it could be better. I want to buy a special edition, but I’m afraid I can not do it now and after 14.09.2010 😦

  18. madshell on September 10, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    rainbows of gaydom, yay~! those slash fangirls at lpfiction were right all along! πŸ˜€

    jk jk πŸ˜›

  19. 22blackjack on September 10, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    Got my album today, and I have to say I truly respect you guys for making an album like nothing I’ve ever heard. On the flip side of that, I have to confess I love guitars. There’s such an absent of guitars in most songs on A Thousand Suns, I honestly didn’t know what to feel about it at first. But, I’m giving the album a chance, and I don’t know, maybe the songs will grow on me. I absolutely love Wretches and Kings, though. Also, although it’s not a style I usually listen to, I’m really fond of Robot Boy – there’s something about it I really like. But anyways, congrats on the new album man, and I’ll be seeing you guys on tour later this year =]

  20. aime1989 on September 10, 2010 at 7:22 pm

    I had no idea what to expect or even make of the new album; but now that ive got a chance to listen to it, man, it’s epic. I love it! great job you guys πŸ™‚

  21. Julian on September 10, 2010 at 6:25 pm

    You gave me the best reasons to be your fan in this album.
    Robot Boy was such a twist-over for me, from dislike, to LOVE.

  23. Alexandra Nofi on September 10, 2010 at 4:52 pm

    Ooh… so shiny!! I love shiny!! *noms on the shiny*

    I can’t wait for the deluxe box set. I missed out on the MTM DVD, I refuse to miss out this time around. I want to be able to sit down and listen to the whole album, start to finish, and really absorb it into my blood-stream.

    I’ve heard the most interesting reactions to this album, like, the other day, someone said they wanted to marry Wretches & Kings, then have sex with it every night. I guess that means they really like the album…

  24. cardboardgun on September 10, 2010 at 1:54 pm

    4 more days! 4 more days!

  25. ErbseLP on September 10, 2010 at 1:41 pm

    lol that was the first thing I saw when I held the special edition in my hands and I said “ha, I have my own lasershow!” ^^

  26. rubenbosch92 on September 10, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    I haz got zeh special edition. Wooo!

    Awesome album. Iridescent is beautiful!

    So are all the other songs ofcourse πŸ˜‰

    Keep it up Mike! Will be seeing you october the 27th in germany!

    Greetings from the Netherlands.

  27. kbcao80 on September 10, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    Hey Mike, what is the mp3 version of the album that comes with Deluxe Fan Edition Box Set? Is it the album on iTunes, the deluxe version of the album on iTunes, or something else?

  33. fenix2exe on September 10, 2010 at 12:52 pm

  44. souneik on September 10, 2010 at 10:08 am

Along with some sort of spinning changer thingamabob. That’s inside the holographic one? Or I’m way off and it contains toys!!!!!!!!!!!! Rah!!! What? damn.

  53. pyttnl on September 10, 2010 at 9:26 am

    So, just let me get this straight. That shiny edition in your hand is the special edition. And the one in the Deluxe Set will be different from that?

    I’m thinking of ordering the special edition, but also pre-ordered the Deluxe Set. Will I end up with the same ones?

  54. mathiaslp on September 10, 2010 at 9:17 am

    Congratulations Mike!!!

  58. rachels7 on September 10, 2010 at 9:08 am

    i whant the album NOW

  59. anaphx on September 10, 2010 at 9:08 am

    Is the black one on your picture the same as from the pre-order? (CD+DVD version?)

    because I saw this one today in our stores in Germany and I hesitated because I wasnt sure if the one I pre-ordered would be the same. I love ATS, I got the normal edition and I get the dvd+cd but I’d love to know if it’s the same version please.

    – ana (LPA πŸ˜‰

  60. shockwavez on September 10, 2010 at 9:02 am

    I have got the right one (I’m living in Germany). Mike.. the album is awesome!!! Great work!!!
    And in my opinion the best album to this date.

  61. Sarah Louise on September 10, 2010 at 9:02 am

    Mine’s right next to me! ^^
    I got the super shiny, Double Rainbow special edition! Going to relax later and enjoy the dvd ❀

  62. kathyxx on September 10, 2010 at 9:00 am

  63. evooba on September 10, 2010 at 8:59 am

    OMLP!!! *dies* I can’t wait to get my copy! I pre-ordered the special edition and I hope it’ll be here sometime next week! I’m dying to listen to the new music and see the MOATS πŸ˜€ From the songs I’ve heard on your myspace, this is definitely going to be the BEST album in history πŸ˜€

  64. mnklp on September 10, 2010 at 8:59 am
