Hypnotic, inspiring, original, dark. The mystique surrounding the album makes it an even more captivating listen. The musicianship and the way everything just fits together is amazing, as well are the incredibly well written, narrative driven lyrics and Brian's eerie, hushed spoken word vocals. The lyrics in "Breadcrumb Trail" always fill my head will all sorts of awesome imagery and the climax of "Good Morning, Captain" is truly jaw-dropping.

The DVD is also an incredibly interesting view into their world and gave a real insight. Definitely recommended. EXCELLENT pricing, too. More than worth it.

I love this album it's amazing but I read the product description and it stated that the the album would come with the Breadcrumb Trail documentary and it only came with a remastered MP3 version of the album.

First time I played this album I was reading Aliester Crowley and the Hidden God, there was also a massive thunder storm ripping up the skythe combination of the three made for a very moving evening. An album that is subtle and massively powerful

Spiderland is simply the holy grail of alternative music, the Rosetta stone by which all left field music of the last few decades is intepreted.

Imagine for a moment that you have a favourite chair. You are very familiar with it, the shape of the back and legs, the contours of the cushions, the little creak as you sit. Then one day you wash the cushion covers and you polish the wooden frame...

The patterns in the grain of the wood spring to life, the colours of the covers are that bit brighter, why, you even feel a bit more comfortable sitting in it...

And that gives you an idea of what the new re-master of Spiderland is like.

From the opening chiming guitar figures of Breadcrumb Trail to the closing, apocalyptic shriek of Good Morning, Captain it has all been gently buffed and polished, as if years of accumulated gunk have been subtly removed to reveal more of an old familiar favourite.

You can hear more of just what Pajo and McMahon are doing to their guitars; McMahon's muttered, incantatory vocals are that bit clearer, while still requiring you to listen attentively to be drawn fully into the eerie world of the stories; the shifting, crepuscular atmosphere of the album is intensified.

The answer to the perennial question of "Is it worth re-doing an album?" is, in this case, most definitely "YES!"

I am tempted to dock a point for the outtakes only being available as MP3 download (not everyone's interweb connections are good enough for one thing - mine isn't - and MP3 just sucks), but that might be churlish.

The CDs a masterpiece. No denying. Even if you own it it's worth buying again to get Breadcrumb Trail. A great documentary about who the band were and what they have become.
