Still waiting for a proper live album,
This review is from: Idlewild...Plus (Audio CD)
As a longtime EBTG fan , i have collected everything they 've done so far ( and Tracey solo jobs too ) . So i find it pretty much like a rob getting this old new material packed in another format with some excuse bonus tracks and home demos . We bought the cassettes and vinyls in the eighties , the CDs of same in the 90s and we certainly don't need this ! EBTG have given so many concerts in their carrer and i only attended one of them ( Cologne 1996 , the live version of " Better Things " was brilliant ! ) because i was living until then in Algeria . I wish they would release some live concert like the one of the acoustic tour ( extra tracks on Missing : The Live EP ) . This was EBTG at it 's best . The " language of Life " tour has also brought great performances too. And this is really what the fans want and waited for at least 20 years. We're not gonna be fooled by WEA for this old stuff , that only brings sells of back catalogue . Also HD downloads would be fab . Tracey and Ben know how to do it from their independent recording experience .
So come on Ben and Tracey ! Do us this favour to your 50th Birthday this year . Or give a concert in London or better in Berlin , as we'd love it so much to see you live !

Wow you gave them one star because it's not exactly what you want. I bet they're glad all their fans aren't as judgemental.

One star? Really?!? These CDs have been produced and released by the record company (albeit with Tracey and Ben's involvement) as they have the rights not EBTG. Many fans will not have all these tracks so it's nice to have them in one place with the original album plus some new notes and the lyrics. This is a fantastic collection of songs. If you consider it a "rob" then you can choose not to buy but surely that doesn't change the quality of the album. And you never know, they may release a live album too!

I suggest a book on English grammar would be much more beneficial to you.
Oh, if there's a sale on, grab a dictionary as well, as your spelling is appalling.
"Tracey solo jobs", "like a rob", "excuse bonus tracks", "carrer" "sells of back catalogue"
Good grief, a six year old could muster a better review.

I don't think an attack on the original poster's grammar and spelling is helpful, especially as English may not be his/her first language.

Maybe my tolerance would stretch a little farther if he hadn't posted the same irrelevant review three times.
He assumes that "we are not gonna be fooled by WEA for this old stuff".
Well speak for yourself, as the other reviews tend to suggest that it's very much appreciated by the fans. You're the odd one out, Mr. nasseemb.

Bet his English is better than your Arabic.
