The initial 100 copies or so came (from Rough Trade only maybe?) with a companion bonus CD. Should the whole lot (2LP+CD) be listed separately or just mentioned here?

Sound is good but like all XL recordings both records are dished a warped. Such terrible QC from this label. Will not buy again.

Can anyone post matrix info for this release? Curious if LP one is the same EXCHANGE cut as the OG release.

For the 10th Anniversary, there will be a new edition in Double Vinyl & CD featuring at least 2 unreleased additional tracks.

This is a brilliant final album. I don’t know too much about the mans work to be honest, but loved a few songs I heard of this when it came out. The album itself is quite short, is full of synth, and dark in tone. The spoken word interludes work well to tie the thing together. His voice is a distinct strained instrument which he uses to good effect. I am a sucker for singers that are all about delivery, and Gil delivers it with gusto.

Picks:
- New York is killing me
- Me and the devil
- I’m new here
- Running

This LP is incredible. The production, mastering, everything. Gil Scott-Heron's last project to be released while he was still alive. This album acts like a collage of his life's works, and even a tip-of-the-hat to his deserved title of one of the inadvertant founders of the sound and essence of hip hop. If you like anything at all that he did on previous works, this needs to be in your collection.

Easily the most played album in my store for 2/3 years, stunning from beginning to end. Sad there'll be no more but what a way to sign out.
