I think these days I even prefer More ABBA Gold to it's predecessor... Both bop of course.
I've always much preferred More ABBA Gold, all my favourite ABBA songs are on it and haven't been overplayed to death (Summer Night City, Angeleyes, The Day Before You Came, Head Over Heels, Under Attack, When All Is Said And Done). It's such a great listen.
Having a very disagreeable experience listening to Cherry Pop’s Re-Flex recent Vibrate Generate 2CD. Some tracks sound very dodgy, one has a digital glitch and I suspect some of the tracks are modern remixes, as there is a lack of annotation as to their source. Avoid.
I have been wary of that Re-Flex release. It looked like a quick cash-in.
I didn't even know about it, so just as well!

2. Death Of A Party (Well Blurred Remix)
3. On Your Own (Crouch End Broadway Mix)
4. Beetlebum (Moby's Mix)
5. Essex Dogs (Thurston Moore's Mix)
6. Death Of A Party (Billy Whiskers Mix)
7. Theme From Retro (John Mcentire's Mix)
8. Death Of A Party (12" Death)
9. On Your Own (Walter Wall Mix)
I never got this, nice to finally have the chance. Odds on the mixes being atrocious though?!
They're not great. I bought the CD many years ago and it's only an occasional play. I think that 1997 album is their worst.
I love their 1997 self titled album. Probably my favourite of theirs, with beetlebum, on your own, death of the party, etc.. Its the follow up, 13, I struggled with more. some songs just went on too long and weren't quite as obviously commercial. I haven't listened to it for years and as my tastes have matured since then I may feel differently.

Anyone who missed out on The Cure Wish remastered vinyl or 3CD versions?
It seems that they have printed more and it’s back on sale on most stores.
I actually like all the later Blur albums so I’m not so worried by the source material, just what they’ve turned into!
Oh Jeez. 13 was tortuous in parts. Bugman starts off well then descends into 2 minutes of the sound of drilling or something. Trimm trabb is a sonic experiment that works but I haven't played anything bar that and the singles for years. Caramel would have been a good b side in any previous era.
Now Yearbook 1979 is the next one : NOW Yearbook 1979: Amazon.co.uk
Oh for goodness sake! At least complete the rest of the 80s first, the mid to late 80s, always appear to be overlooked on these type of things.
I was so hoping they were going to resume the 80s with the 1985 Yearbook. Hopefully this won't sell as well as the 80s volumes and they will take the hint, I don't want them going backwards to 1970 now. It wouldn't be as bad if they had even completed the 80s before taking this detour. For me this shouldn't be part of the NOW brand which didn't even exist in the 70s.
Yes, NOW was not even a thing in the 70s. Seems silly doing that now.
I will buy this but it seems ridiculous to not finish the 80s before going back to the 70s, when NOW did not even exist.
