I actually prefer the other one.

Played it this morning. Explained to my wife that it’s a much bigger cultural touchstone in the UK, which baffling because it’s so good.

That is why it simply is their best number 1. It literally was the story of those riots. Towns up and down the country being smashed up. A backbeat to Maggie's shitty economic values and there being "no such thing as society".

Yep it is a live snapshot / commentary of what was happening at that exact moment in time.
Even comments on themselves not being able to play live due to the violence, “too much fighting on the dance floor”.

Not too many other songs that are that direct and current get to number 1.

Yeah I have seen that it is another nice release but I don’t think I will be buying it (even at £32 which is reasonable).
I have all those albums already on vinyl and nothing new on the CD release unless you don’t have the albums e.g. Dance Craze.

What they should be doing is a re release of Dance Craze (it has never had one) double album gatefold sleeve with all the extra unreleased tracks included.
Listening to them now it was be amazing.
