I agree with banditpanda Crosseyed Heart is a big let down after so long of a wait. Basically, its boring. A retread with little to distinguish it. Often plodding and amateurish. With basically two good tracks.
It's been bouncing up and down since the original sale in June when it was $41 (w/free shipping US).
I've been tempted to get another copy for a friend, and have one in my "saved for later" cart watching the prices fluctuate.
One minute's it's around $45, then jumps up to $50, then back down, and back up...and currently at a whopping $140...
No place left for it to go but back down again, so I suppose if it goes back below $45 again I'll snatch it while I can.
I immediately kicked myself for not buying a second copy. I'll 'wait and see' as well.
Heart Stopper and Substantial Damage.
Talk is Cheap on the other hand is classic Keith! A fantastic record, with good writing, playing and production.
As for the 30 anniversary. I will rant about the vinyl deluxe collection. Bought it three different times because of massive warp on both albums. All three had the same warp. Terrible quality control. Reverted to the single album and it is great, a great pressing and mastering is superb.
