I bought this album when it came out and am still listening to it now. It shows the band in familiar jangly guitar mode but the production is nice and raw, and it also highlights that the Weddoes could come up with some excellent tunes and lyrics. For me this album and "George Best" are both great examples of late 80's indie.The intro to "Living and Learning" still puts a shiver down my spine now whenever I hear it.

I remember well when I first bought this album...the distinctive sound of the Wedding Present! Dave Gedge, the singer, always used to joke that they were the Smiths fans second favourite band. This is an understandable sentiment and Gedge always manages to express relationships and situations in a heartfelt and honest way. Alongside this the band have a distinctive sound. Yes there are the jangly guitars but these songs are often muscular too - just don't go expecting twee indie music here - you won't get it. Go Out and Get Em Boy veers from arpeggio opening to chiming chords to a rather optimistic sounding verse..and this is just the start. I think one of the strengths of the Wedding Present is their absolute lack of pretension and their reflection on everyday life - often injected with wry humour. Yes the band grow ever tighter with each record they released but the tunes here still stand on their own merits. Personal favourite is Never Said declaring, "I walked behind you for more than an hour, I don't even think that I know this part of town....." - in the context of the song this is a sweet lovelorn sentiment set to a fast paced guitar workout. I don't listen to Tommy that much now - Bizarro probably is my favourite Wedding Present album but Tommy is worth checking out. It has some gems on it. Its unpolished and perhaps all the better for that.....

I think it's about time all the negative comments on these Wedding Present reissues were redressed. I receieved my copy of Tommy and played it for the first time today. Firstly, the packaging is absolutely fine. I genuinely have no idea why people are so angry with this. It just seems normal packaging to me, nothing unusual, no significant chance of any damage occuring when the CDs are removed/replaced. Perhaps there has been a redesign since the first set of pressings (?). In any case, I'm baffled as to why people are up in arms about it. As for the music, this is a wonderful, comprehensive collection which just sounds tremendous. It really is the definitive document of Wedding Present history and in terms of content, research and thoroughness will never be bettered I'm sure, so for those of us who are moved, exhilarated, full of joy for this highly underrated band, then grab these reissues with both hands - they are ridiculously lovely things.

I'm a big Wedding Present fan, so I was always going to like this almost comprehensive package, with lyrics, pictures, narrative, live versions, DVD versions and interviews as well as the original Tommy. I love it.
