Just wish they'd release the new album on standard CD.

The first album in 22 that I've never owned. :'(

Vinyl and really expensive CD box sets that many fans can't afford at the moment. :'(

Vinyl is cool (for anyone who still has a turntable).
Well, fingers crossed there'll be a single CD out soon.

Cheers Fred Ferdinand. :)

This is probably a good move for Sparks going by their last album, which I've not actually played all the way through yet. :o
