The first US CD of this
album comes in a special long box.
It's clearly written on the back of the long box "You are
holding a collector's item: a rare object; an endangered species.
But this is one we can afford to lose - the environmentally
hazardous, throwaway compact disc longbox. Only the first printing
of this album will be released in a longbox - all future pressings
will be shipped in a new environmentally-safer package. So you
might not want to throw away this long box - in addition to
keeping it out of a landfill, you'll possess one of the last
of a dangerous breed."
It's important to know that Sting is one the people
who have combat to stop the longbox issues as he think it was
dangerous for the environment.
Few times later, this long box was stop of printing, and it
was the digipack which comes, only folded in two with plastic
bares on the side to hold up the digipack right. This second
issue comes with a sticker which state "in a new, environmentally-safer
package. The third issue was the digipack, normally folded,
and now it's a normal issue in plastic case.
