:lol: Yeah, sod that.

About time this album got a reissue though. I'll get the two-disc version for sure. Might stretch to the Super Deluxe edition if the price is no more than £150 in the UK.

Disappointing though that a lot of the bonus tracks on the B-sides n' EPs disc seem to just be the G N' R Lies album. That's Queen's News of the World set-style padding.

Did you notice that One In A Million is not on it? I'm only getting the two disc version as well.

Why did I show my brother this? He wants to buy it ;) . I want that long sleeved shirt...yikes at the price though.
Looks like a nice product though. One In A Million isn't included because of language I think I read that earlier.

But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

Trust me, I don't like the lyrics but it's part of their history. I wish is was on it because I still like the song. As far as I know they didn't make a comment about it not be included on this set. It's like they are trying to erase history. :roll:

Odd thing is, I've heard much worse lyrics by some other artists in the years since. What will those artists do if they want to release contervesial music?
I honestly don't like the song, but I would have skipped over the song. I skip Pretty Tied Up, and that's my least favorite GNR song. I think it's been decades since I last played it :shock:

Maybe Axl is trying to forget what he said about immigrants since he hates Trump so much. :lol:

Vert de ferk? I love that song :lol: One of my favourites from the Illusion albums. Amazing guitar solo from Slash.

I'm really hoping this set will finally see the faux-live tracks from G N' R Lies get a release without the dubbed-over crowd noise. The fact that "Move to the City" is listed with (Live) after it is really confusing though. An actual live take? Will the others have the dubbed audience removed but not that one?

Also really annoyed that the one outtake I really coveted - the band's cover of "Jumpin' Jack Flash" - is only in the Super Deluxe version.

I'm torn, I may just download the Super Deluxe version on iTunes for $29.99. I'm a CD collector so that will drive me nuts but I did the same thing for R.E.M.'s Automatic For The People.

Is that going to be an option?

If so I'll be all over that. Not bothered by the tat, just want the music :)

Edit: Just checked Amazon, and yeah, it's available digitally for a fraction of the price. Sweet. Are you paying attention, Queen? :lol:

Oh yeah, it's already on iTunes in the US. I guess I'll buy the single CD and then download the Super Deluxe version.

$999? From anyone else, I'd assume this was a prank. Pales in comparison to the infamous Rammstein Leibe Ist etc boxset...there was value for money.
