Sweeney Todd Lowlights

What sort of stupid record company releases only one of two soundtracks?

Warner Music Australia are distributing the soundtrack to Sweeney Todd (Tim Burton film version). Or are they? What is on offer in Australia is actually the "Highlights" version, not the Deluxe version.

More to the point, what sort of film company would promote a film without making sure that both versions are available at the time the film is released?


And of course, I can't download the album, because Amazon MP3 is not yet available in Australia and other stores only have DRM-crippled copies.

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

Time to import, it seems. But that sorta detracts from the imulse buy experience. How many sales are lost because the product's not available when the customer wants it?
