  1. I like it! It's more electronic than their earlier stuff but it's not a complete departure.

  2. This xx promo for a princely 33p.

  3. I need more interesting finds like that...
  4. Their version of “Teardrops” is wonderful.
  5. Could be worth checking your local Poundland, if you haven’t already?

  6. Mary Lorson’s solo albums are also good - first one was as Saint Low, the single from it (“On the Outside”) was lovely.

  7. Hadn’t thought of that! Now where did I last see a branch!

  8. On a tree?, we have loads of poundland where i live at least 6 and 3 of them are the big ones, but i never seem to find anything worth buying in them.

  11. It's time they dropped the CDs in Poundland to two CDs for £1.

    If not 3.

    Or even 4.

    I used to buy loads from them but nowadays a used CD for £1 which you can't check the disc seems too expensive - especially when half the time the case turns out to be broken or disc skips, despite claims of them having being "refurbished".

  12. I have actually picked up a handful of gems from Poundland over the years, including Deee-Lite's and Julia Fordham's debuts, an 80s Jermaine Jackson album, Alexander O'Neal's debut complete with red inner tray, and, well, lots of other things.

  13. Today I bought the following

    Sneaker Pimps - Becoming X
    Tears for Fears - Songs from the Big Chair - Original Mercury cd release
    Madonna - Confessions
    Depeche Mode - A Broken Frame - Original CD release
    Soul Devotion - 2cd compilation
    The Fall - Totally Wired - The Rough Trade 2cd Anthology

    £2 for the lot thankyouverymuch!

  14. Ooh, The Fall is worth that regardless. I dug out my original TFF one today as well, i can never be bothered to play the deluxes. I think Songs may be my most purchased album, original tape, vinyl and cd, 1998 reissue, 2005 deluxe, 2014 deluxe. Too many!

  15. Same! (And I just added the SDE to that list recently....hope the pre-order comes through).

    Nice haul. Becoming X is a fave of the 90s for me.
  16. I don't really like the fall, but couldn't not buy it, so if anyone wants it.....answers on a postcard :)

  17. I think there are more stock available today, they'd be daft not to manufacture a few more sets whilst the interest lasts. I'll add Becoming X to the list on that recommendation, thanks EG.

  18. Becoming X is one of those seminal mid/late-90s albums for me, along with Dummy, Mezzanine and Walking Wounded.

  19. You don’t like the Fall...???

    I’d pretend to be incredulous but as a die hard indie kid, liking them comes built in I think, with others it’s not always so!
  20. I have several Fall CDs, a couple of comps and a couple of boxsets but that Rough Trade set looks a bit "die-hards only".
