....except the GT re-issue was in a 10" box, so it's already fucked.

Ah, I didn't know that (no chance of me forking out those prices for one). Ah well, bollocks to them all then. Let's have GATS as the same size as the other books, but landscape so it sticks out of the shelf, and the KYE one in a BluRay case.

So I got the box set today. It's a nice looking set, bit bigger than I thought it would be. Lovely glossy pages for the photos and the back part where the CDs are housed is nice. Just seems a little lacking however. There's no write-up in the booklet, no information at all apart from the lyrics. Are the b-sides remastered or just the main album? Doesn't say. Also it's odd where Nobody Loved You isn't on there anywhere except for a live rehearsal. The back cover is bland as there's nothing on there, it's plain grey. Really wished there was a DVD in here with live stuff and a documentary about the making-of, and the era. Still, it's a decent set, just not the best anniversary set they're released overall sadly.

I was just as disappointed as you not to see NLY. It's there though -- it's a hidden song after SYMM. There's a program called Audacity you can use (pretty easy) to turn it into a proper track.

The b-sides are all remastered and really, really, *really* well too. They sound exactly like album tracks. Matter of fact, once you get NLY off of SYMM, put it back to its rightful slot in the listing, and play the remaining b-sides with Prologue as track 1, you will hear some truly ferocious rock music.

All and all, it's pretty insane that one needs to go and edit and fuck around with a deluxe release. The whole point is to have all the material at hand with these. But after I took the 4 hours to turn everything back to normal, I quickly realized this is my fav manics re-release by far. Simply because the re-masters make the album sound absolutely colossal, b-sides included.

I've noticed on facebook they've been asking the fans what song would they like to here acoustically and now what they would pick as set closer.

Sign of drastic changes ahead or just an attempt to get fans engaged before performing the usual?

Did seem odd, that, yes.
Anything other than ADFL would be a huge surprise.
I wondered if, given the pacing of Truth, they might deviate from the previous format of full album then other stuff. Maybe instead get things going with ME and international blue, the the album, then a few other things.
