Steps - The #1 Platinum Collection + General Discussion

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by johnoc2006, Jun 28, 2006.

  1. So my 4 individual signed albums arrived today, Lee, Lisa, Faye and H's, I expect Claire will be here tomorrow along with my group signed deluxe. And just got caught up on the last few pages here and have just ordered the signed vinyl too. So I think that brings it up to 8 copies of the album I have bought now including the iTunes download.
     
  2. Oh I meant keeping the bundle plus having the additional signed vinyl separately, to at least give people the option (if they hadn't purchased yet). I'm glad I pre-ordered the bundle!

    Has anyone ordered from Chalky's recently? I've had mixed experiences. Got Imelda May's deluxe album that arrived in a card box but then my Birdy CD was in a plastic bag and arrived with the case dunched/bent/damaged. I'm tempted by the standard CD + mini poster!
     
  3. Mine came the next day (a shock for Chalky’s), the CD and poster came inside some bubble wrap which was inside a Jiffy bag so it was all well packed. After the Kylie delays with bent prints I was pleasantly surprised. For a fiver you can’t go wrong!
     
  4. Someone download the Stomp mix PLEASE

    I know it doesn’t count for anything but to see them still number one on iTunes after 5 days is great. Especially when manics are at 12 and 17.
     
  7. It does count for something. It may not be an official #1 album but again it's the most downloaded album.

    My version of What The Future Holds: The Definitive Edition looks like this for now:

    What The Future Holds
    Take Me For A Ride
    Clouds
    To The Beat Of My Heart
    Heartbreak In This City
    A Hundred Years of Winter
    Wasted Tears
    Under My Skin
    To The One
    Trouble & Love
    Something In Your Eyes
    The Slightest Touch

    Deluxe Bonus Tracks:
    High
    One Touch
    Living In A Lie or Kiss of Life
    Hold My Heart

    There‘s no songs that I don‘t like outright (except maybe Don‘t You Leave Us Halfway which I find too dull), but for me they went back to the Melodifestivalen well too many times. It‘s the exact opposite of what I want from them. Having said that I‘m still very happy with both parts of the album.
     
  9. Signed vinyl is now sold out. No idea how many they had up, though.
     
  10. Looking a vision in purple for today’s performances on H’s Instagram story.

  11. I ordered the deluxe signed album from Amazon and it is 2 discs in a hardback 'book' format. The inner pages have song lyrics. The first CD is the album. The second CD is acoustic versions and remixes. There is a signed insert, which has different photos to the insert in the HMV exclusive version of the album.

    Hope that helps.

    At a guess I'd say 500.

    I'd be very surprised if it was more than 500, at most.
     
  14. I know people were hesitant about the logo change,

    But it was worth it for the giant STEPS lights that follow them everywhere they go.

    I mean I still hate it, but luckily the power of Photoshop means I don’t have to see it too much…

    As a set piece it does work well I’ll admit.
     
  16. I’ve got to say, a lot of the tracks have grown on me immensely - I definitely think it’s a stronger album overall than part 1, although part 1 had better standouts / singles.

    A Hundred Years Of Winter is one of my favourite things they’ve ever done. I love that darker edge and the production is stunning. My only gripe is that I wish it had more HRHLSL and Faye and less H but that’s just me being picky.

    Trouble and Love is so joyous and playful, I’ve had it on repeat!

    Victorious has obvious production issues and doesn’t hit anywhere near as hard as it should but I’m still enjoying it now.

    The only song I haven’t come round to is High which is a sound I think they should steer clear of going forward. It’s way too predictable and meandering.
     
  17. I don’t see it as a logo change, it’s just part of the album artwork and aesthetic of the era, they’ve said that themselves. It works, and the artwork was getting boring with the logo floating above them on every single. Sometimes it was oversized and centred in a way that it hadn’t been. The worst offender has to be the Light Up The World single artwork.

    Also, the logo changed quite often back in their original run. They didn’t have the shape around it for the first album’s singles. It changed for Deeper Shade of Blue and When I Said Goodbye, again for Buzz/Stomp, and really only became what it’s been for the last few albums on Gold! It’s definitely iconic, but in a way I’m happy to have something fresh. They’ve already brought it back on the new tour poster / Steptember posts anyway!
     
  18. Coming up on This Morning “to perform all their biggest hits” at 11.05

    I’d be happy to have something fresh if it wasn’t so DaFont looking.
