FIRST PICTURES / PiL super deluxe editions

pil_metalbox

First look at the packaging for the two PiL super deluxe editions – Metal Box and Album – which are being reissued next week.

Going by these pictures, the four-CD box sets both seem to conform to the style and dimensions of Simple Minds and Tears For Fears super deluxe editions, although obviously Metal Box comes a metal box which adds a premium of about £6 on to the price.

4CD super deluxe of Album

The 4LP vinyl version of Metal Box is still hideously expensive, and it’s hard to recommend something that is so overpriced. Obviously a 12″ x 12″ metal outer box isn’t exactly cheap to make, but even so the non-metal vinyl super deluxe of Album is still £137 for a 4LP set!
