I owned the original on cd and to be quite honest, I thought it was over rated. I based the album around 'There She Goes' and never got into the album. Until the past few years, that is. This is a well deserved classic- having got out of school in the mid 1980's, it must've been refreshing to hear this when it first came out- away from the mindless electronic music of that era. I like the accents as well, I'm as American as they come but always appreciated the music from the U.K. As a huge fan of Brit Pop, I'm really surprised I never let this one sink in before, but better late than never.
As far as the deluxe treatment, I think they did well with this.mi enjoyed the two different mixes of the album.
Pick this up, it's very well worth it.
