    Notice the signed is now 80 quid – looking forward to ABC at RAH in April, LoL II is a great album IMHO

    received mine yesterday side 2 plays fine but side 1 has been pressed of center its that bad you can see the tonearm swaying left to right whilst the record is spinning. no doubt another gzvinyl pressing

    i have the signed cd on order but it hasn’t arrived yet… did anyone spring for the $145 (US dollars) deluxe box set with 2 vinyls & 3 dvds & signed print? I would love to see pictures of the entire set (other than the one pic posted on the ordering page)…

    after shipping it comes to over $200 US dollars (due to no other option but signed courier shipping)

    I’ve been enjoying this album, production-wise it’s not as strong as the original and neither are the songs – the lyrics particlarly – but there are a few standout tracks as others have noted and I’d defiintely count it as a return to form.

  5. Gary Hunter says:

    What a fantastic album this is. Some very impressive tracks, “Viva Love”, “Confessions Of A Fool”, “The Flames Of Desire”, “Ten Below Zero”, “Singer Not The Song” and “The Ship Of The Seasick Sailor” are classic ABC tracks.

  6. Hiram says:

    Waiting for the signed CD but really wanted the vinyl in the first place! Sign or unsigned, guys? what do you think? The cheaper Amazon price is attractive- Martin Fry, your return is most appreciated but the prices are steep! At least press them in colour vinyl or something!

    Thanks for the updates everyone, did not know about the 2 disc version. Too much live stuff on this one for me. perhaps they will have another go

    • Neil says:

      I wouldn’t think so it’s already been reissued with bonus tracks first in 1996 then 1998 and of course the double CD in 2004.

  8. Jay Kranz says:

    still hoping the box will become available from someone who doesn’t charge 50 bucks to ship to USA

  9. Trash says:

    @Graham – not sure about Super Deluxe but it has had the Deluxe Two CD treatment.
    Looking at my copy now – it includes:
    – The album
    – The original singles
    – Outtakes (and an oddity)

    – Demos
    – Lexicon Live at Hammersmith Odeon 1982

    Not sure if it is still available but defintitely worth it…

  10. graham says:

    Has the Lexicon of Love ever had the SDE treatment, long overdue if not, remixes, 12″ original sessions

  11. David says:

    Unfortunately I’ve been doing just that,and I don’t like any he’s played so I’ll give it a miss.Its a shame as I’ve bought all previous albums.Regarding Dare 2,a new album would be nice full stop,don’t care what it’s called.

  12. Auntie Sabrina says:

    BBC Radio 2’s Ken Bruce Show has been playing tracks from Lexicon Of Love II so why not listen on the iplayer if you are interested in what the quality of the tracks is like?

  13. Chris Squires says:

    Tubular Bells II (Brilliant) / Bat out of Hell II (better than expected) / Lexicon of Love II (anticipation…..)

    Other possibilities from still functioning acts who can use an old name to boost interest and sales?
    Dare II
    Human Racing II
    No Parlez II

  14. elliott buckingham says:

    brilliant price never will beat the original lexicon but if its on par with traffic ill be very happy

  15. All done. Thanks. Thought £30 was a bit steep so this is great.

  16. Steven says:

    I so what this to be a great album, but I can’t help thinking it’s going to be reminiscient of when Ian Anderson (of Jethro Tull) revisited Thick as a Brick territory – decent enough songs, but lacking the magic of the original line-up.

    Anyway, for £14 it’s worth a punt, I guess :)

  17. Neil says:

    I wish they would release the DVD separately at a decent price.

  18. Gary Hunter says:

    Thanks for replying Paul.

  19. Gary Hunter says:

    Paul do you happen to know if this is 180gm Vinyl??

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      I imagine it probably will be, but don’t really know to be honest. There is no mention of 180g on the ABC site in relation to the signed version.

  20. Peter Nicholas says:

    Thanks for this Paul, another great saving made. Ordered this and cancelled the one placed with the official store.

  21. Jeff says:

    Thanks, Paul! The box just didn’t cut it for me, and I’m a huge fan.

  22. That’s more like it

  23. Dave says:

    boxset still worth it for hardcore collectors. imho.
