Default Mismatched disc with One by One

I ordered One by One off eBay (which instantly brings possibility for things to be wrong with materials), and I got the right case but the disc said "Times like these acoustic version" and a bunch of numbers. Crazy thing is, the CD worked as One by One. Anybody heard of anything like this? or have I just been duped?

you mean in your computer? it says it is something while something else is played?

if so, the problem is with your player, which is rather common, it just fails to search for the right track names online, maybe because of similar catalogue numbers of different CDs, almost none of my single CDs features the right track names.

No, it was the physical CD. Like, it looked like what a single might look like for an acoustic version of times like these. but it came in a one by one case, and played one by one.

It looked exactly like this..

Hopefully that works. But it came in the 1x1 case and played it.

Sounds to me like you were duped, which is why I won't buy used cds online.

I don't think I can get a picture on here that works. If you google images it, it's just a silver disc with the words I said before. It's so weird, because the disc looks like it would be used as a single but has the CD. I don't really care, cause the case is right. If I find it I'll just buy it again!

yeah, duped indeed, what a shame people doing this, but who knows if the person just switched without noticing. I started my foo record collection this year, bought a shit ton of cds on ebay and discogs and all of them arrived in perfect condition, I think this was just bad luck.

you can always contact the seller too, maybe he sends you the cd.

That'd just be weird because it isn't a blank disc. Why would they intentionally put it on the wrong disc?

I'm confused your main problem here is that it has the wrong title on the disk?

If it was me my problem would be that someone had sold me a burned disk instead of an original.

But it looks like a different official disc. That's the weird part. But you're probably right.

My pal bought ObO this weekend, at Hastings, brand new and it was exactly as you described. One side looks like the bottom of a regular disc, the other looks the same, except it has the words Times Like These Acoustic. He has not complained that it doesn't work right or anything. I wonder, is it just a multi-sided disc that is ObO on one side and Times Like These acoustic version added on the other side as a bonus?

Tried it. Doesn't appear to be the case. Good idea though.

It's an official glitch. I got my copy of One By One from Amazon this morning. Sure enough.. the disc reads as Times Like These (Acoustic) on the front, but when you put it in it's the actual One By One album.

So you weren't duped, they are just screwing up at the plant.

Just a misprint? If it's got the correct music on it, who cares?
