10/06/06 - Beck's Creative Packaging Costs Him UK Eligibility to Chart.
The new album was released earlier this week to much acclaim, but according to reports, it has been banned from U.K. charts, as a result of a set of stickers allowing fans to design their own sleeve.

Britain's Official Chart Company stated that the unusual packaging that accompanies the record and was specially designed by Beck has been ruled as an unfair advantage over other albums.

The CD will not be eligible for Sunday's chart run-down in Britain. Beck replied to the ruling, stating "It's an unconventional package, but it shouldn't be penalized for that," "Any art on a CD is an incentive to buy and listen. Ultimately, it doesn't matter. The response from the fans has been so strong, and that is the most important thing."
