After hiatus after hiatus that came into my life, I finally had the chance to pick up my pre-ordered Miracle Milk album from animate Bangkok. I have crazy high expectations with this album (I love Mili and this is the first time I’m buying an album of any music ever) and the product is a bit…well, it’s wonderful but underwhelming haha. Okay, enough rambling, let’s get opening, shall we?
Even though on pre-order day the order cards for this album ran out quickly (mine was the last one they had for the day), when I went to pick it up, there’s like 8 copies of Miracle Milk just sitting there in the store with no one looking at. Huh.
The album comes in plastic. No, the sticker above the bar code does not say “SHIT 1004”. If it really does I’d ask them if I can get a refund. Normally I would say 1,430 Baht is pricey for an album, but after looking at prices for Love Live singles, an album that has 18 songs and comes with gazillion other stuff is worth the price.
After appreciating the beautiful cover, let’s open the thing.
The left is the CD itself along with the lyrics cards, and the right is the animate Bangkok limited CD.
Comes with 2 songs, It’s a wonderful world -2016- and Sacramentum: Unaccompanied Hymn for Torino 2016. These two are worth sitting in a car for an hour to get to MBK for.
Here’s all the cards they have. I’m kind of disappointed it’s regular hard paper, because it needs a lot of careful preservation in Thailand’s weather. I don’t like when I come back to look at it years later and they’re all crumbly and faded. But the colors are nice to look at.
This is the main CD. It comes with a sleeve and a jacket, along with advertisement for their 2016 Live Tour which I’ll never get a chance to go to. Can’t I have a box though? I’m scared of breaking this precious baby.
Some of the cards are two part of the same illustration. Makes it all the more interesting.
The sound quality is excellent. Ignore the 23:36, the clock on my CD player is broke.
All in all I love it. I’ve listened to the whole album about 8 times already.
For more information and to buy the album, visit their Official Site.
EDIT: It’s now 2020 and the color of the lyric cards are still in perfect condition. Though the plastic cover of the album bent a bit out of shape because of the heat + humidity. I really need a better tupperware to keep this thing in lol
There’s a secret to this album. If you haven’t found it, check out my other post.
