    This way of doing so-called Box Sets is not what genuine fans want. For one, these digi-books are not box sets. Box Sets need to actually be in a box, and have a lid. Why couldn’t they have presented the set like the recent The Verve deluxe re-issues of ‘A Storm in Heaven’ and ‘A Northern Soul’ for instance? Both of these had a beautiful thick card outer box with lid, with inner book, and with each disc in an individual card slipcase. Much better, and so much easier to keep them mint condition, and most importantly, to get easy access to a specific disc, rather than the stupid cheap bendy plastic lugs and stacking of discs Edsel have cleverly decided to use for the BA set. And they call the BA set a Deluxe Edition!? Having cheap bendy plastic lugs which snap off so easily aren’t Deluxe in my opinion. Buyers of physical media want packaging that lasts, not cheap plastic crap which snaps and breaks if you ever-so slightly put the disc back wrong, and stacking of discs which means discs are often scratched and marked. Almost as stupid a manufacturing decision as the moron who decided it was a clever idea to invent Blu-Ray eco-cases – Yes, because movie collectors were crying out (Not!) for large holes in the front and back of cases meaning discs and/or artwork is easily damaged!

  2. Piotr says:

    Looks like the signed vinyl boxes are available from Amazon UK again. Maybe some pre-orders failed to pay (card expired, insufficient funds etc).

  3. BRENEZ Alain says:

    the fixing system for the CD’s is a mess. I had a very hard time removing the CD’s without bending them. I actually put them back loose in the set.

  4. Ltd says:

    Are the vinyl numbered?

    • colm47 says:

      Got mine this morning and it is not numbered.

      Got the one with signed photo, the cover art work on an LP sized card.

      Signature is not exactly that big!!!

  5. David says:

    Do you get downloads with the vinyl?

  6. Craig says:

    I’ve ordered the cd set despite having the lot, but from watching the video I’m a little disappointed that it’s using the same weird cd holder idea as the Coming Up reissue.

  7. Jmix says:

    What happens to the bonus tracks, the live album and the DVD with the vinyl set?

  8. Francis says:

    You are rather heavy handed when it comes to putting discs in the case so no wonder the clip snapped. I also notice that you put your fingers on discs when you handle them, including the vinyl LPS. I would hate you anywhere near my music collection as my CDs and records would end up covered in scratches and fingermarks. LOL

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      I wasn’t heavy handed. You can spread marmalade on CDs and they still play, don’t forget..

      • Francis says:

        The marmalade thing has been proven to be false. I for one would not be stupid enough to try it so if you do then you are just as daft as though that tried. It was a ploy to sell CDs when they first arrived on the market saying they could not be damaged in anyway when in fact they can.

  9. Phil Wilson says:

    Just received mine from Amazon, I have managed to get the discs out easily (more than I did with the coming up box) but every single disc is scuffed / scratched. Do they use them as Frisbees before boxing them? Luckily Amazon will have a replacement with me tomorrow but why is no care taken in placing the discs into the box sets?

  10. claudio oliveira says:

    …no promo videos?!?

  11. Chris Brown says:

    I did enjoy the action replay.

    I also enjoyed the fact that if you watch directly on YouTube, the sidebar includes a lot of videos of somebody called Brett Anderson unboxing model aeroplanes. I’m guessing it’s not the same guy though.

  12. paolo says:

    Both versions are very nice presentations, I like how they used the cover art of each album on respective discs for the CDs. I’m only concerned about those clips that hold the discs, looks like something bound to break, sooner or later.

    The vinyl box is really tempting, though I don’t know how many times I’d play the first three albums. I guess I will wait for the inevitable standalone releases to grab ‘Black Rainbows’, which is my favourite out of his solos, on par with Suede stuff IMHO.

  13. Straker says:

    That action-replay is the funniest bit of vid I’ve seen all year. The portentous music only makes it moreso!

    You’re a gifted unboxer Paul.

  14. Kevin says:

    I wouldn’t mind seeing something similar done with Bernard Butler’s two solo records/b-sides.

    • Craig says:

      Good call, that would be superb. They could include the Trans stuff in a cd set which as far as I’m aware was only released on record and download.

  15. Andy says:

    Paul, does the LP set have any indication that it’s a signed copy (sticker) on the outer wrap ? Managed to grab a copy but giving it away as a pressie & don’t want to have to open to double check.

    • Peter Yarrow says:

      I ordered the signed version of the vinyl set but there’s no indication without unwrapping it that it’s signed … I was hoping I’d get the downloads through Amazon but no sign of those. I shall have to take the plunge and unseal the box
