I used to be a collector of the band Queen from 1995 to approx 2005 until I sold a lot of stuff and shut down my website Queen Picture Hall. I now focus on releases by other artists and the odd Queen & solo release in case it pops up.

This entry was copied from the US 2LP release so I am guessing that the contributor forgot to remove track 15 from the track listing.

The A-side appears to be a unique edit as it fades out 4-5 seconds quicker than the album version. Don't know (yet) if this is also the case for the UK 7" with Ripples on the B-side.

Just completed the recording and compared it with the 1994 remaster and it is really a different mix. The hi-hat is much more upfront in the mix now. The album version sounds very flat when compared to this single version. Also the bass is much more ... See full review

Am listening to the Special-Mix for the first time now and think it sounds very different from the album version. Apart from the missing drum beat intro I think that instruments have been mixed very differently. Will record it and then compare it with ... See full review

Actually I think this release is interesting, because of the unique picture sleeve and the otherwise unreleased B-side.
It's Yourself was released on the Archive #2 compilation in 2000, but in an edited form. Same for the 2007 remix where again the last ... See full review

Only this release has Save Me on vinyl! And I think this is also the only place where you can find it on vinyl.

Yes, typically all picture disc test presses are pressed as clear discs with a white sheet inside instead of the actual picture/photo.

So I finally got a copy of the UK 7" today, because of its B-side Shambelle. Its track length is set at 5:42 vs 5:06 on the US release and 5:01 on the Message 90's box.
Turns out that the UK copy has its track length misprinted and it has the same length ... See full review

When looking at the track length, I'd say that track 2 is the same one as the Blind (Beats) mix (which can be found on the US 12" and UK promo 12").

Question.. I just received my copy and the pink sticker is not attached to the back sleeve as per the Discogs photo, but on a piece of paper, allowing me to peel it off. It seems that the sticker faintly lists the following: "HIPPOPOTAMUS shaped vinyl 2 ... See full review

I disagree. I think the album sounds very good. It was a tough one to continue without Urbanowicz, but with every album that they have released after his departure, they are getting better and back to form. I already thought this when In Dream was ... See full review

Seems you wont get a response apart from a shipping notice. It may take two-three weeks before your request has been processed.
And yes, people have received their replacement discs already, though I do not know yet how it sounds.

Same issue here with the first disc, though it is still playable. The sound resonates a bit though (becasue of the warp?) which was wearing me down a bit and taking away the joy. The second disc plays fine. Good album I must say!

Amazing. That always happens whenever I have bought the first press for a high price :D Same with Keane's Hopes and Fears for instance.

See if the back sleeve shows a bit more info like for the West Ryder re-issue. Maybe this is also the case for Empire.

No I don't think so. That was just a bundle. I also got a signed deluxe 2CD edition with the 10", 12", cassette and slip mat.

It is my understanding that 5000 were made for the US, hence the US edition has a four digit nbr on the back and for the UK/Europe there were 15000 (?) in total, hence the five digit nbr on the back.

No, when you buy from Noppin (not Nippon, unless there is also a site called Nippon) you only pay for transport, not duties and taxes. This will be determined by customs in case they pick your parcel.

Got this record today and am wondering if it contains the original mixes or the ones from the 1997 or 2002 remaster/remixes? I have never heard this album before so am curious which version I am now going to hear first..
