Indeed, Sasquatch. Let's set the record straight and stop confusing potential purchasers! "Something/Anything?" (third solo) is a double LP which is only just a bit too long for one compact disc. "A Wizard...." (fourth solo) is a very long single LP, clocking in at a touch over an hour and sold as a perfectly normal single disc. "Todd" (fifth solo) is a double LP, but it also comfortably fits onto a single disc. Doh! For the sake of being thorough, "Initiation" is the sixth solo album. Also clocking in at over an hour, and sold as an ordinary, single cd.
And here we get this rather strange, unsequential regrouping of Todd solo albums, like several of these "Original Albums" packages. (The first, second, seventh, eighth and eleventh solo albums.) An okay album ("Runt"), three essential Todd albums ("Ballad Of...", "Faithful" and "Hermit...) and a rather dire one ("The Ever Popular...."). One suspects that this is a cunning record industry idea to get punters to buy dodgy albums which they otherwise do not want. Perhaps there will be a second "Original Albums" volume of Todd's back catalogue, but still not somehow managing to find room for one of his veritable classics.
This package of five albums remains good value-for-money, in spite of the above reservations, but purchasers are still lacking some really key releases. However, i simply hate the idea of being "force-fed" a duff title and have subsequently docked this package a star!!! To deem "TEPTAE" as being one of Todd's worthwhile discs is to treat the paying public as nincompoops.
