It is available digtally and on vinyl. I know, those are not my favourite media, but at least you can buy it physically on a crackling plastic disc.
I think I'll get the bundle and give away the book on the forum. I'm sure someone here will really cherish the book more than I.

Re: PSB most certainly do excellent "intros"...what's your favourite?

I am going to classify an intro as the music played before the first vocals by Neil (of the first verse) are sung. Suburbia (Video mix) The whole dogs barking and then the threatening music playing does contrast the lighter music of the rest of the song really well. it blends into the piano part so ...

Re: Most Forgettable PSB Song

Saturday Night Forever Footsteps You Choose I didn't choose bad PSB songs as this is about forgettable songs, not songs we do not play on purpose because they are terrible. That's why crap like Electricity does not quality for this list. All three good songs, just ones that I rarely play and get for...

Why is Agenda on CD not sold separately?

Why is Agenda on CD not sold separately?

A simple question. Does anyone know why the CD Agenda is only available as a bundle with Annually?
A shame as I know many people, myself included who only want the CD, not Annually as well.

Re: "I Prefer Their Later Work": 40 Brilliant Albums At The End Of Artists' Careers

In my opinion I think Very is where they really first hit their stride and showed the full breadth of their talent. Even if you ignore the couple of terrible tracks on Very, the album to me is the first album to really show the PSB in this light. I didn't get intot he Actually hype as I was not arou...

Re: "Annually 2017", pre-order now

They should compile every Literally from 1989 - 2016 and reassemble them into Annuallys for each year retrospectively...could we coff-up enough for that?? Just release all of them into one fat book and the fans will buy it. Add in an interview or something exclusive to this huge collection so the l...

Re: POPJUSTICE inteview, Neil wants to win an Oscar

Is Neil willing to lower his standards enough to be accepted enough by the hollywood establishment so he can win one of these awards?
I hope not.

It'd make a great poster or jigsaw puzzle! I would have inverted Electric and Yes, but the rest's quite right.
I fixed it for you.

Re: If you have a friend who wants to know about PSB's discography

Personally I would not start with Actually. I'd rather start with Very or Yes. But I see why Actually is the starting point, as it's the go to album of the fans. I only became a fan in 2009 so I know better than most what it's like to be a newer fan of the PSB. The fans need to start thinking like n...

Re: 2017: "New Batch" of reissued & remastered albums w/ Further Listening albums

I agree with the comments about re-doing Release. What frustrates me about that album, probably more than any of their others, is that they recorded some really good songs in that period and yet the tracks they put on the album made it a bit incoherent. I would have sequenced Release like this: 1. ...
