Super deluxe six disc edition boasts an abundance of material. Disc one features a 2016 remaster (by Andrew Walter at Abbey Road) approved by Charlie Burchill and the second disc gathers 12-inch remixes and instrumentals of the singles, a few of which enjoy their CD debut. Various edits and B-sides can be found on the third CD in the set while disc four features previously unreleased BBC John Peel and Kid Jensen radio sessions, recorded in February and August 1982. All ten tracks on disc five are previously unreleased; made up of alternative mixes and demos and the icing on the cake is the sixth and final disc which is a DVD, featuring Charlie Burchill and Ronald Prent's 5.1 surround sound mix, first released on the now long out-of-print DVD-Audio in 2005. This mix of the album is a unique 'full duration' mix which is different to the standard version. DVD also includes promo videos and a few Top of the Pops performances. Note, this is a DVD-V unlike the DVD-A/V disc from previous Simple Minds box sets.
Nosound's fourth official studio album Afterthoughts features a new line-up for the band and includes former Porcupine Tree member Chris Maitland on drums throughout. Maitland's unique drumming has enhanced Nosound's dynamic range and taken the band's atmospheric Rock to a new level of power and sophistication. This is the 2 disc edition featuring the stereo mix of the album on CD plus a DVD-A/DVD-V (NTSC 16:9, Region Free) with stereo and 5.1 surround high resolution 24bit / 96kHz mixes, plus DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround versions. The first 500 pre-orders of the album from the Kscope store will receive a bonus CD featuring instrumental versions of all the tracks on the album.
The debut solo album by Steven Wilson is quite simply an essential release, a huge sonic adventure recorded all over the world and featuring many guest musicians. Disc one is the already acclaimed 10 track album on stereo CD, and disc two is a DVDA containing the album in higher resolution 24 bit stereo and 5.1 surround sound (in high res DVDA and DTS version compatible with any DVD player), an 18 minute extract from ‘Insurgentes’ film, and 2 album trailers.
