Packaging is a jewel case in a cardboard sleeve with a booklet and jewel case insert, (see photo of release). It is quite likely the extra packaging is missing if bought second-hand.
The End is Near was sold at live shows starting in 2003, and later at one independent web site. This CD has never been released through a retail outlet, such as Amazon, Best Buy, etc.
The End is Here, a two disc set, was more widely released in 2004, including retailers. The first disc is nearly the same as The End is Near with the addition of The Cross of St. Andrew, and the second disc is a live recording of their final show (before they quit).
