*This is one of an abundance of late reviews I’m posting trying to catch up after dealing with some stuff that took up all my time for a few months*
This is my first Music Box since June (I think?). I chose the Box (which now is listed as 2 cds and swag) and Metal as my genre.
The boxes now comes in shipping bags.
Inside the bag is a white box with a Music Box stamp logo on it. It’s flatter and wider than their old brown boxes. I personally preferred the brown boxes but….eh..it’s just a box.
On to the contents. This is what I saw on opening the box.
CD #1 Glamour Assassins “Ain’t So Young”
A 9 song cd with the song and band info text in a Star Wars like font on the back and a photo of two kids with short mohawks on the front. The cd is a 2015 release by Independent Ear. Bands on this label seem to appear in the boxes pretty often. This looks like something I may like. I’m looking forward to listening to it.
CD #2 Triumph Over Shipwreck “Forever Ending”
A 8 song cd with a very metal looking font and design. Prior to listening to it I don’t have high hopes of liking this one but maybe my daughter will. She likes loud screaming metal. She’s 1 year old. She is odd.
Download Card #1 Ervasa “A Lost Soul”
This card is a bit plain. So, I have no guess on the genre or sound of this band. I’ll have to download it to see. I guess.
Sticker #1 Lark Vs. Owl
Sticker #2 Throne of Eden
Sticker #3 Bobby Meader
Swag Items #1 Bobby Meader Bracelet
Random Item: Balloon…thingy?
I’m not sure what this is but it’s cute and I’ll probably hang it on my bulletin board when I get my office set up.
Gift Subscription Discount Code Card
I’ll probably change my genre for next month (if I manage to get online before it’s to late to change it). I just like to change the genre around to see what I get. I think I’ll probably end up sticking with rock or metal eventually. I think this is first time that everything looks like it’s in my chosen genre, though. Then again I haven’t gotten a box in a while. So, maybe they are better with sticking with the chosen genre now in general?
This is one of my favorite subscription boxes. I don’t have a working cd player in my car right now. Which means I don’t get to listen to the cds a lot but I just think it’s an awesome box in theory. It’s such a great way to hear new bands. Eventually, I’ll have a new stereo in my car and I’ll be able to play cds again. I’m hoping to get this box next month and then probably skip a couple months again to try new boxes but I don’t see myself canceling this box anytime soon. I’ll skip months here and there to try new boxes, though.
