Potentially the Best CD Packaging of All Time : Dillinger Escape Plan

Dillinger's new release "Option Paralysis" can be purchased now and comes as a limited box set (2,000 made and costs about $80) but calling it just a box is an insult to what this actually is. The damn thing opens on on several sides so there are multiple compartments that open to reveal all sorts of surprises.

Included in this box is:
  • The Option Paralysis album on CD with a flipside that is an actual record! Not sure I have ever seen something like this before....ever.
  • Liner Notes
  • Special Edition Photo Book
  • Flag / Banner
  • Hat (beanie knit style) 
  • TV-B-Gone (Turns off any TV)
  • Metal Luggage Tag
  • Buttons
 For a complete set of images to show how the box opens up and what all is inside it, go here.

 It looks like it can only be ordered via the Seasons of Mist web store which I can't even get to open for me today so good luck trying to buy it!
