By Big Jim TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Josef K, Orange Juice and Aztec Camera were the mainstays of early 80's Scottish indie label Postcard records, and arguably Aztec Camera were the most succesful once they's moved on to major label success, and this is again arguably, their finest hour (and a bit). I know that every generation will say this, but those of us who were around when this album first came out were truly spoiled for choice and if you missed out then, then make up for it now. If you were too young to have heard this band before then do so now as you will not find a better, more perfect collection of guitar based pop/rock out there. Think Vaccines with tunes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Totally borked reissue series 12 Sep 2012
By aliled
Format:Audio CD
Hardly anyone was as excited about these long-overdue Aztec Camera remasters as I was. Until I heard this one, and realized that the thought and care that went into the same label's Everything But The Girl reissues is lacking here. The extended version of "Oblivious" has a horrible digital glitch (and yes, this is on everyone's copy, not just mine) that shows they simply dubbed it off an earlier compilation CD on which the same error appeared. And now, reports are coming out about a wide series of similar gaffes on other CDs in this series, with many commentators asking "Doesn't anyone actually LISTEN to these CDs before they're manufactured en masse?" and comparing the label's handling of the series to the disastrous, error-ridden New Order reissues a couple of years back. The label in question then went back and did the right thing - replacing the troubled discs with fixed one - but one doubts Edsel will do the same, or even respond to the many complaints about these. The music here is great, and the idea of expanded this fab run of albums with all relevant b-sides and rarities is fantastic. But unlike the EBTG or (English) Beat reissues, Edsel seems to have never consulted Roddy Frame. Stick with your originals, unless something unexpectedly changes.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Domino US is releasing a double CD version of this album. It contains EVERYTHING here, PLUS the "original single version" of "Pillar To Post," the 7" version of "Walk Out To Winter," two "live on CFNY" tracks ("Back On Board" and "We Could Send Letters"), a four-song Kid Jensen radio session ("Walk Out To Winter," "Down The Dip," "Back On Board" and "Release"), an *unreleased* single version of "Walk Out To Winter" and a SECOND remix of "Oblivious." That's what, ten extra tracks?

Format:Audio CD
These reviews above relate to the Edsel version, not the Domino records 2CD version released in 2014 as a 30th anniversary edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars This boy wonders..... 27 Sep 2012

Great album, still can't be faulted. But if they were doing the whole reissue package, then where's the early versions, early singles, etc. Oh well, opportunity missed. Send us a Postcard....

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad error on Oblivious remix 19 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD
Have to agree, I'm afraid, with those reviewers who have pointed out the glitch on the Oblivious remix. Didn't anyone notice this before it went to press? Didn't they care?

Sorry, Edsel, but this is not good enough - so when is it going to be repressed properly?

2014 Domino remaster is amazing! Sound quality is top notch with a great bass tone.

Extra tracks are high quality and glitch-free on this 2014 version, authorised by Roddy Frame himself.

Standouts: 'Back on Board' and 'We Could Write Letters' but there aint a duff track- if there is an 80s album worthy of its reputation, its this one (along with 'The Queen Is Dead')

You have to give this album 5 stars. It is one of the best first albums ever. As with so many of these recent reissues it is a missed opportunity for the completist, but you have... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars What is your problem?
SOrry, but this Edsel remaster sounds amazing. It's WAY better than the orignal US CD issue. The "digital glitch" you refer to in the "Oblivious" 12" mix is on the original master! Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Roddy speaks....
As is pretty obvious, this version was created without any input from Roddy Frame. It's a shoddy thing, but he is unable to prevent it happening. Read more
