Disappointing release. While it's great to have Alien Blood, there is nothing in regards to production, lyrics, band recollections, etc. Kind of lazy when it comes to creating something deserving of this band and this LP.

Is this box set individually numbered, or does the bottom everyone's box say "Art.#1812"? It's probably the same for everyone, but the font of the numbers "1812" is curiously different enough from the rest of the lettering on that panel that I thought I would ask.

I bought Y when it came out originally, was a big Pop Group fan and had the poster on my wall (I was a bleak and pretentious teenager). I was in a band that tried to emulate the PG (very badly).

I bought this 3 CD set on a whim last week. For old times sake. Just listened to Alien Blood and really enjoyed it. Wouldn't describe it as an 'unreleased album' as such. More or less different mixes of Y, but it does have Kiss The Book that was hithertoo only on the 'We Are Time' comp.

I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected (don't always like going down memory lane). Great to hear Blackbeard at the controls. Pity the box set doesn't have a booklet. There's little or no information at all in the package.

The tracklisting on the back card of Alien Blood is wrong ... and therefore wrong on Discogs too.
Right order is:
1. Kiss the Book
2. Don't Call Me Pain
3. Thief of Fire
4. Words Disobey Me
5. Don't Sell Your Dreams
6. Boys from Brazil
7. Savage Sea
8. Snowgirl
9. Blood Money (Alien Blood?)
10. We Are Time
