This is so ridiculous and embarrassing, but I have no other choice but to make this problem public...
Out of all the people in the world, you're the only ones who can maybe help me with this issue that has been bothering me for YEARS now.

Does anybody else here love the VK band Baiser? Well, I sure do! And because of that I bought one of their singles, "Heaven". It's a beautiful release, with a nice and big photobook! Love it!
Here's a discogs link to the release: https://www.discogs.com/Baiser-Heaven/release/2224832


Sounds really sexy! So what's the problem?

I can't find the actual CD! I think It's inside the photobook, the cover specifically as it's quite thick, but I have absolutely no idea how to open the goddamn thing! I once tried to open it up from a place that looked like you're supposed to tear it open, but I think I just damaged the photobook. I don't want to ruin the entire thing to find the CD, but I would like to hear it at least once in my miserable life! I paid for it! Goddamn!

If only I had a camera I could take photos with so I could show you. I feel like an idiot for not figuring this thing out.

So if anybody has any idea, please help. You're my only hope!

Goddamit. I don't get it. Like you can see the CD here on the other side of the cardboard thing:

But you can't get the CD through this hole, as it's too small.
On the other side, there's this cardboard "door" that you're supposed to rip open I suppose. So that's what I did. Now that piece of cardboard is completely ripped off of the whole thing and it won't go back in properly and thus the CD could fall out of there or scratch or something :/ What a strange way to package a CD. Well, at least I can finally listen to it.

Was it worth it? After all these years nothing would be worth it, but it's an alright track. Too bad they didn't put any b-sides on it, though.

Now that I decided to finally open the thing, I also decided to look at the photobook again. I just have to say, what a fantastic photobook. A lot of pages, nice photographs from different sessions and the quality is good. It really makes me wonder, if a small VK band from 1998 manages to release such a quality photobook, how come Malice Mizer released such a lame photobook in 2019? The price listed on the package says ¥3800, so for a great photobook and CD it's also not too bad.

Still. I'm satisfied and I can finally die in peace.
