Re: New EP on April: Agenda

I was going to post something on here about this new EP. Then I read the whole of this thread. Blimey, this forum is an even grubbier toilet now than when I was last here.

Off I go again. I won't be missed. :)

Re: In the studio: 21 songs for the new album so far

Leaving is far and away the best track on Elysium. Nah, ‘Invisible’ is. Leaving, Invisible, A Face Like That, Memory of the Future, Requiem in Denim and Leopardskin is the best track on Elysium. :wink: Glad to hear Price will round out the trilogy. I'm not that keen on Super. It just feels like it ...

Re: Reissues project

I own the 2001 remasters in CD format and have bought all of this last batch of remasters as well. I can tell you that there is a very distinct difference between the 2001 and 2018 remasters in CD format. The 2018 CDs have been remastered at a noticeably lower volume level. It’s not the difference ...

Re: Reissues project

Also, Erasures Loveboat released in 2000 debuted at number 45 with sales of around 5,000. Blimey - that was one dire album. I don't think I've listened to the album in the last 10 years. You should. I used to think it was dire too. I was wrong. Yes, the production is a bit crazy, but as an experime...

Re: Reissues project

This thread is 156 pages long now and I'm late to the party. I haven't ordered ANY of the new Further Listening editions either on vinyl or CD so far (call myself a fan?) because I'm deeply cynical about the quality based on the previous 2001 editions. Can anyone help or point to some posts in this ...

If that's an actual picture of the printed book it's a paperback and not hardcover.
Looks like a render to me. Also the description says: "hard-backed book" so adds more weight to it being just a render.

Not a moan - just a fact!
Anyway, are you moaning about a moaning post about a moaning post?
Blimey! :(
Oh well spotted. ;)

It is a bit, just waiting to see how long it takes to sell out and the moaning to start.
That moment when someone submits a moan post about people posting moaning posts. Only on here...

Taking up to much space, imagine for Release, how many vinyls they would have needed. It's simply not feasible.
Of course it's feasible. The Smiths are doing a five-disc box set for a single album.

Mind you, the imperial phase albums would probably be a more commercially appealing bet.

Re: Reissues project

Everyone keeps saying "they", but let's face it... it's their agent/PR company that most likely said no on their behalf.

It's tough bursting someone's bubble but that's acoustics for you.
It's tough being a tiresomely snide keyboard warrior too isn't it? Oh wait, no...
@Jamesqdot let it go.
I replied once. I'm not exactly on a crusade here. Melodrama much?

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

Vinyl for listening pleasure, packaging and sound quality, digital for convenience and precision please. You can take those awful little shiny discs and flush them, frankly. You understand that CDs are digital, right? It's tough bursting someone's bubble but that's acoustics for you. It's tough bei...

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

I'm hoping for vinyl repressings of the albums from 1990-2009. Vinyl?! why has the world gone wrong.... Trump is president, UK voted for Brexit, people believe in fake news and people buy vinyl... Why has inferior quality become so popular? I'm not ready to live like an animal. I'm sorry... people ...

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

The original Japan bonus 3" extended mix of "This must be the place..." would be a welcome addition as well. That doesn't exist. :wink: Isn't that the same mix that's on the Jealousy CD single? I love that mix as well, and surprised it wasn't on the Behaviour FL. Not quite. It's an even longer mix....
