The music is awesome, the packaging sucks!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Electric Peace (Audio CD)
Music-wise this is easily a five star album. "Electric" is my fav Cult album and it's been for years!
"Peace" is the blueprint of the album "Electric" and presents great and very different songs and versions than the final album.
Every song on this new version was already available as the "Electric" album and the "Manor sessions", so there's nothing new in terms of music here, but we knew that already by looking at the setlist.
The big let-down here is the packaging! This is basically the artwork of "Electric" shoved into a slipcase but nothing else! The booklet is the same as the regular "Electric", there are no comments about the sessions, no pics from the "Manor sessions", no unreleased photographic material, and really that sucks...
So if you already have "Electric" and "Peace" is some form or another, don't bother with this version, because the only thing new you'll get is a cardboard slipcase.
If you don't have the music that is on those discs, then I urge you to get it, as it is some of the best music ever released by a rock band!

I wish I'd read this review before I forked out £17 on the vinyl version. As with the CD the packaging is just the regular Electric sleeve with the new artwork on a piece of 12x12 paper in front of it. Massively disappointed especially after the amazing Love reissue a couple of years ago.
