Debtroit, this press uses the exact same plates as the UK. The only difference is the sleeve on this EU is missing the LPKIDA1 on the barcode.

While this may not be the same type of powerpop from their previous 2 efforts, I do find this one super catchy with even better pop hooks especially on love me forever. I keep coming back to this one over the others.

They definitely switched it up to match the times and what was hot plus Bryson had left the band after vis a vis. Fortunately the album has a ton of catchy tracks so it’s worth picking up especially this monarch press which sounds fantastic

Sounds like a post grunge mix of early foo fighters, a touch of nirvana and failure so if those bands excite you like they do me then you will definitely want to pick this lp up. The vinyl pressing sounds great too so you can’t go wrong with that either.
The Books - Lost And Safe
posted a review of The Books - Lost And Safe. 10 months ago
The original 2005 German press is stunning and dead quiet which is critical with a soft album like this. Tons of space in the music requires a quiet sound floor so if you love this album like I do then do yourself a favor and seek a copy out.
