In the 1990s Bernard Sumner and Johnny Marr put out three albums and nine singles as Electronic. This is a 2007 digital-only edition of their debut, containing the 1994 remaster and a bonus "disc" of single tracks. Because most of the singles were reissued at the same time as this, it has to share the quality a bit, but this still contains almost everything that should be here: the two one-off singles with Neil Tennant (Getting Away With It and Disappointed), all the B-sides (Lucky Bag, Free Will, Lean to the Inside and Second to None), and several creative, melodic remixes.
The second disc essentially contains the British Feel Every Beat and Disappointed CDs, plus both versions of Lucky Bag, Free Will and Gangster (FBI Mix). It's nice to have every track from the Disappointed single, which wasn't released on its own. If you get this bundle then you'll have a strong collection in an instant - though two additions are advised: the version of Free Will here is edited, so add the full version from the Get The Message EP; and throw in the sweet 12" version of Feel Every Beat from its separate EP release as well. Other than that, this is action-packed.
