    Nearly 28 minutes of music on side 2? Hope they can squeeze it all in.

    It’s a beautiful record. ‘The Patience Of A Saint’, very much the equal of ‘Getting Away With It’.. which really should not have been stuffed in on this remaster / reissue.

    The high water mark for me for Electronic will always be “Disappointed”.

    Have to say, as someone who jumped on this CD when it came out in 1991, I find it an incredibly dated listen these days. Can’t say I’ve managed to get through it many times in the last 10 or so years.

  7. Craig Hedges says:

    The inclusion of GAWI interupts the flow of the original album and although I love the track doesn’t fit on this album. Gangster sounds like an ‘end of a side one’ track with the long break down at the end.
    They should’ve pressed up GAWI as a separate 12″ release with the various remixes.

      Have to agree with you.
      From memory, Soviet (an instrumental) is/was the perfect start to the second side.

    1991 CD = DR14
    2013 remastering = DR8

    Been waiting on this vinyl reissue for a long time! Glad they stuck to the original tracks!

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Well they didn’t quite stick to the original tracks, because ‘Getting Away With It’ wasn’t on the LP, at least not in the UK, but I know what you’re saying.

    I’m surprised they haven’t added tracks from their other two albums like they did with that joke double cd they released a few years back.

    Wow, so the 2cd deluxe digipak must have sold well interesting considering didn’t sell all that well upon its original release in 1991
