There's a great Foo fighters record in 'In your honour'. Shame they've gone and ruined it by making it a double.

Lose a couple of the rock tracks add 2 or 3 of the quieter tracks and there's one pretty damn good rock n roll album.

I suppose that's much the point. With so much to choose from, fans will probably rip the tracks to their i-pods and create their own tracklisting from the 2 Cds.

Razor is an outstanding song. Kinda think i prefer the live Jools version for it's simplicity as it's a little more diverse on the album. I'm liking both sides equally. The acoustic is definately a more melancholic sound and the collaboration with Norah Jones is very different for them. As is Cold Day In The Sun it just sounds unlike anything i expect from them, it's very reminiscent of that old school 70's mellow rock, can't describe it as i don't listen to it that much but the Led Zepplin and Lynyrd Skynyrd era of music. Not sure if this is the track the Led Zep guy played on.

Friend of a Friend was always a classic and sits well on this album i just wish they'd recorded a studio version of Damn You, Damn Everyone as that's one of my favourite live tracks they play.

Not sure it deserves the mantle of Greatest Hits which Dave has been quoted as saying but it sounds like they've really worked on a lot of the songs so i can understand his enthusiasm for what they've done.

Still, hope it's not their last.

I'm disappointed with the 'rock' side. It's not any heavier than anything they have done. It is good, but not as great as has been touted. Each song starts with Dave screaming his head off, but the guitars sound over produced and not crunchy enough.

The acoustic side is excellent though.

Best album is still The Colour and The Shape by a mile!

has anyone here managed to get the 2CD and DVD set?
I had it ordered from Play - got cancelled - out of stock.
HMV.co.uk have removed it "unavailable"
101cd is on order, but bet it won't come.
CD-wow have removed it!

I heard from BMG that only 5000 were available to the UK and all went on pre-order!
Gutting!

I got the 2CD + DVD from Play. It arrived on saturday. I had it pre-ordered for ages.

Cost £10.99

You won't miss much though. There is a 20 minute documentary on it where they insist this is their best album, it rocks etc etc. This is THE album they will be remembered by. Don't think so Dave!

Also there is a version of the acoustic side in enhanced stereo or 5.1 on the DVD. I don't really see the point though.

Fairly nice packaging. Slip cover with a foldy out thing that opens out into 4 sections. Left to right - DVD, Electric side, Acoustic side, Sleeve notes.

I had a little bit of trouble trying to get the middle bit out at first. Shaking it and everything. Then realised you just push it from the side!

given that it is only £10.99 - it seems worth it for the packaging and novelty extra disc!
Thanks for that! (hope I get my hands on one!)
