    I was looking through my Dream Theater cds and just realized that 3 of them say they are from Argentina. Don't know if anyone else has come across these. What i am wondering is if these are legit pressings? Are they the same quality as the US releases? Anyone know? I admit i am overly picky about my cd collection, I just want to know if these are the "real deal". Any info will help. Thanks!

Well, mine are made in Malaysia, I bought my CDs while on a visit to Kuala Lumpur and they were made by Warner Music Malaysia.. I am from Egypt actually all CDs in my country are imported from EU. but the made in Malaysia was strange to me ..but a perfect quality I must admit it..

@Daso: I was just curious because I have read online that Argentina cds could have lower quality inserts and that the discs themselves could be lesser quality. I don't know if any of this is true. My Argentina cds sound good and the inserts look ok, but I have nothing to compare them to. Thanks for the info! I appreciate it.

I know what you mean, but you're confusing something. What that means is that the album distribution is done by a company in Argentina. I live in Panama (Central America) and the albums that I buy in here are made in Argentina, as well but other countries in other continents have other companies making the distribution. That means the album itself wasn't actually [i]done[/i] in Argentina, just the manufacturing of the copy you and several other thousands of people have.

Well I bought the US version of Images and Words tonight and there is differences. The US version has a much sharper cover art and the paper is thicker than my version from Argentina. The disc is even heavier than the Argentina version. They both sound the same but I have concluded that the US version is just made better with better materials. Now I must replace my other 2 albums that are from argentina. Oh well.
