I HATE it when bands do that! When bands release their album and released it again a couple of months later with an extra live cd or dvd or whatever... Moloko did that to me, as well as some other bands that I already bought the cd from...

It's a pretty sweet deal if you don't already have the album, though (and if you do already have it, you're not really losing anything). I have a special tour edition of Incubus' Make Yourself, for instance, that has a bonus disc.

At least it's being released domestically. Import-only tracks are the true suckage.

Yes, "Shopping for Blood" is one of the new (?) tracks.

I wouldn't call it a re-issue... more a 'special edition'. Bands do it here all the time 'special tour edition', where they just throw in another cd with 4 tracks or whatever. Manic Street Preachers 'The Holy Bible' new release is a re-issue, same with Grace.

Money making scheme? Yes.

I never actually bought the album, but I'm kinda tired of it, may get this though.

I agree, I love U2 but it bugs me that they have that, "Vertigo" is a new U2 song and some U2 fans haven't heard it while there are already new "Vertigo" remixes.

I hate re-issues. The only time I think they're acceptable is when they do something like Elbow did with the re-issue of Cast of Thousands (and I think a couple of other bands have done as well)....sell the bonus CD/DVD seperately at a reduced price so fans won't have to choose between buying the same album twice or missing out on the bonus material.

I'm not really convinced by Franz Ferdinand enough to buy any sort of release of theirs.

Not so keen on the whole reissue thing but Franz Ferdinand are a great new band. I saw them a few weeks back now and the gig was ace. Deffo worth getting the album if you ain't!

I think the options to put out an EP instead or hold on to the songs for the next album would have been better.

I bought the CD HTDAAB.

WHAT???

Ya know...that's what I get for trying to be on top of things with CDs this year...I need to start waiting to buy discs like a year after each release, in case they re-release it with more good stuff.

i know this is slightly off-topic, but the concept of a box set is pretty lame when you think about it...i think a certain band has a song about that
