and wishes he was 18 again?
You're only saying that because you refuse to get Muse.
he really did sell his soul to the devil huh. i thought people just meant bskyb.
I stay out of it.
but everybody knew who was boss there.
They didn't review the Idelwild "100 Broken Windows" reissue or the Primal Scream Screamadelica one. Which i was disappointed about
and as a big Idlewild fan, I HAD NO IDEA THEY RE-RELEASED THAT!!!
Bonus cd is great
Digging up the past and burying the future?
Not sure what percent of 800 reviews that is.
Happy to answer all math related questions.
But to be fair I'm going through an 'I hate new music' phase, so I wouldn't mind if it did.
it just that all new music sounds like old music.
rather than having to form original opinions.
...which means all their best shit from the 80's is getting the super-sexy deluxe treatment. Murmer and Fables of The Reconstruction anyone?
...the deluxe re-issues of the 80s REM albums started way before they split up. The remaster of "Murmur" actually makes quite a significant difference to the sound of the album. I wouldn't say better, just different
that ignores the fact that a very small proportion of reviews are of reissues etc, I suppose the fact people are keen to write about old records probably tends to come down to a) the fact they probably already own them and have more advanced thoughts on the subject than an album they've never heard of, b) you often get quite a nice physical product out of it, which is pretty handy when you're not being paid for writing, c) I think the ailing nature of the record industry is such that there are a greater number of posher reissues of things than there were a decade ago. I actually do filter stuff a little bit, like when those Beatles albums were reissued a few years back I just could't be bothered, I couldn't imagine anybody would have anything meaningful to say, but in general I offer out most remasters we get sent info on.
