Was just over at Borders: the new Badly Drawn Boy album does indeed have the bonus second disc: "Live at Glastonbury Festival"

Jarsim, let me know what you think about the new Suede album, I was bitterly disappointed in it. I think you will like the James and A-Ha DVD's, I have.

I like the Suede cd, and the james one is great, where he is telling the band I can't hear you and the crowd shouts out a roar.

The last time I saw James, in Birmingham UK, my friend and I were in the back of the indoor stadium and as a treat to thousands of fans (in the back) Tim Booth came off stage and sang from our section of the venue - it was fantastic!

You guys should consider picking up Out Hud's S.T.R.E.E.T. D.A.D. Really great IDM/electro stuff with a full band. I love it.

Giles, yes, I too am very disappointed in the latest Suede CD.
But then of course, I have only listened to the CD twice. Often, it takes me more listens before I really get into a CD. However, I do remember that I instantly liked "Head Music" the first time I listened to it and was further blown away when I saw them with two of my other favorite bands, Wilco and R.E.M. in Germany in 1999. (my all-time favorite concert)

I have to say I'm disappointed in Richard Ashcroft's latest too, again though having only listened to it twice. Supergrass started to warm on me already on the second listen. Idlewild I liked the first listen.

I'm excited for the James and A-Ha DVDs, I've ordered them from Canada as they're not available widely in the US.

Last time, I was in Birmingham, saw the Smashing Pumpkins at NEC. (if I remember the venue name correctly)

Not to rain on your parade or anything, but the Idlewild CD is getting a domestic release (Jan or Feb I remembering hearing from someone in this forum.) I have the CD's singles and the title tracks and b-side songs are all great.
Okay, now that pisses me off that Region 1 (Canadian) editions of the James/A-Ha dvds were released. oh well, I usually can't wait for Region 1 releases, anyway, so I guess that's my loss. Have you heard if Canada is going to see a release of the upcoming Jools Holland DVD (my fingers are crossed that it will)

Yup you are correct, the Birmingham NEC, the acoutics of the place really surprised me.

Nope, my parade's not rained on . . . usually it's about the same price or very little more to have CDs released in the UK weeks to month in advance of the US release since there's no VAT. I'm too impatient to wait for possible US releases for some of my favorite (lesser known) UK artists.

Plus, now that I've found www.cd-wow.com it looks like it'll work out cheaper than amazon.co.uk, since most of their CDs are around $13.50 shipped.

The Today's CDs (date) threads used to be a daily fixture. They have nothing to do with purchases. They're about what you're currently listening to.

Duh, the new Justin Timberlake :lol:

I'm waiting for the WWE: Anthology before I buy anything else. That is a must-have!

new u2 mixes are odd, but growing on me,
Larry is singing on Numb now ha ha

The bjork box set looks cool, the packaging on the 3" cd's are beautiful.

Giles I was in both wherehouse and Tower and neither had the ltd BDB release, the tower guy who was super nice told me that it was a limited release import....

You say you got it at Borders, how much?

I went to Borders after class and picked up a copy, but haven't listened to it yet. Thanks again for the heads-up.

I found it funny that the live disc is called an "official bootleg." Seems like a contradiction to me.

Excellent! I will be going by Border's tonight anyway. Thanks for the info on the BadlyDrawnBoy album.
