5.0 out of 5 stars Beware! You are purchasing the CENSORED VERSION, October 10, 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Heist [Clean] (MP3 Music)
This album is fantastic. But I feel completely cheated by Amazon because nothing on this page indicated that I was purchasing the watered down, edited version of this album. Make sure you order the version called The Heist [Explicit] if you want to hear all of the songs in the form they were intended to be heard.

Yeah, I noticed the same thing ... after buying it. Super annoying!

After talking to Amazon customer service on livechat, I got a refund for this album and the explicit version is available at: The Heist [Explicit]

Ugh, this is what happened to me, too! I don't read the reviews on something that I know I'm going to buy, so I didn't see this until I came back to see how I made that mistake. Apparently, we have to know to pay attention to what's not written in the description. So frustrating.

So, I want a CD that has the explicit/original version ... am I just out of luck? Is there only one version of the CD available? I only see MP3 downloads available at the link provided ... ugh!!

If you don't see the [explicit] marker in the title of the product, chances are it is the "clean" version. Amazon doesn't do a great job of distinguishing their clean CD's and this has happened to me several times in the past. However, Amazon customer service for this is GREAT! If you get on CS chat or email them, they will refund you for the clean version and you can purchase the Explicit version. I have never had a problem with getting this sorted out.

as said in my review, you can purchase an explicit copy straight from the macklemore website! I just got mine in, it's like in a leather-esque bound case, with about a dozen or so cards with artwork, and the explicit CD. It's not the usual looking package, which is very welcome for the price I paid

Ahh, thank you so much! I listen to music in my car, on CD, and *really* wanted a non-censored copy. I'll buy it at the Macklemore store.

Thanks for this review. I actually prefer censored versions of CDs I buy. Not for prudish reasons, I just find it interesting how they sound, but everyone hates them, so I can never find clean versions of songs unless I buy a hard copy myself. I was starting to get a little annoyed that this CD didn't look like it had one, but this review helped me out. Now I'll know what to click once I get the money to purchase this.
