My favourite album of all time - yes, THE one...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Disintegration [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
Okay, not the most original best album but such is life. In 2007 I started playing this album obsessively for a few months (after playing it obsessively for many many years after release). At that time I made the momentous decision that this album was indeed my personal favourite of all time. It's barely dated after 21 long years and now the heavens have parted and the duluxe edition is incarnate.
Disintegration could never be enjoyed fully without it's little sister, Entreat. For instance, the live version of Disintegration (the track) is much better than the album version in my opinion. The intensity comes out so much better with the faster tempo. I'd give my right bollock and perhaps my left one too to have been at Wembly that night. Oh well.
And now we have Entreat with four more tracks. Hallal-farking-uyah! Life is good!
For a long time I've wished that Amazon allowed reviewers to give their products half or even quarter stars -- so a really amazing album could be allocated 4.75 stars. Well, this one deserves the full monty - it's truly a five star effort.
Getting older isn't always huge fun but I'm happy that I was 17 when I got into this album. Life wouldn't be the same without it.
