I'm in the minority on Pyongyang. I consider it one of the 3 really good songs on the album as opposed to the other 9 amazing ones. :oops:

oh, that really sucks, but I do not know if it is only in the store I bought. Funny that the only way to see the tracklist is on the booklet

Yeah, i was probably asking the obvious here, but that's what i always wanted to know, if every country gets their own copy of the album and if Japan was always the only one to get a bonus track, artwork, etc., in order to estimulate the sales of their own copies over the imported versions of the same album. Then, so far we all have exactly the same album except for those little details such as the obi strip or the Y'all Doomed track on the Japanese version.

Interesting (or maybe not) to note that this is the first Blur album where Blur hold the copyright under licence to their label rather than the other way round. I seem to remember they originally signed a long contract back in 1990 with Food/EMI which they didn't really understand at the time; looks like they have now agreed slightly more agreeable / lucrative terms :lol:

No sign of a "Blur" company being set up like "Gorillaz Productions Ltd" which was set up in 2001 and, incidentally, dissolved in 2012, but a quick search suggests a company called "Blur Touring Ltd" was set up on the 18th Feb this year with the four band members as directors, which will clearly hold their touring revenues.

I noticed that on the album too on the obi strip and the spine. BLUR(2015), I thought it was weird there wasn't a space between them.
