The Blueprint page has been updated with more scans and corrected timings. Whoever was in charge of the sleeve timings got 14 out of 17 wrong, why do they bother? Possibly I'm being too Swiss about it, as some are only wrong by 1 or 2 seconds. But discounting those still 6 are more than 3 seconds incorrect, the worst being Timebomb 30 seconds (CD time 4:43, sleeve time 05:13) and Nephatiti 11 seconds (CD time 04:48, sleeve time 4:59).

I find it more disturbing however that the full length of 2 tracks has been trimmed off the album:

Pacifc State - origin: clocking at 05:51, that's 0:37 trimmed off the original 06:28.
Cübik - remix by Monkey Mafia: clocking at 05:21, that's 1:21 cut off the original 06:42.

The total CD spans 76:22, so the 01:58 for Pacific and Cubik didn't have to be cut off as up to 80:00 can go on a CD.

Food for thought to consider for different country pressings?

Does anyone know if Blueprint will be available in the US for mp3 purchase/download ?
Its available on the Amazon UK site, but not US. I keep checking. other outlets turn up empty as well. I got all the remasters through bleep, but no go on Blueprint. So far I am stuck to listening to the 3 or so on youtube.
Thanks.

I haven't got the answer to this, but I just want to say that no wonder record companies are having hard times if people in different territories are prevented from buying a digital album (legally). At least in the past with vinyl and CD's you could import stuff.

With Blueprint we have the interesting situation in the UK whereby buying the CD through Amazon or Play is actually cheaper than the download.

After a three years wait, Blueprint is now available on Spotify in The Netherlands. Don't know if that applies to all countries outside the UK?
