9/10 Alessio Giacomini Customer review, 17th July 2015

Editors Note: In some kind of Italian/English hybrid but you can't fault the enthusiasm.

I love - io amo - i Delgados, and i have cercato il loro record per years and years. Today finalmente è stato repressato e thanks to Norman Records can i ascoltarlo in vinyle. Un piece fondamentale for my discografia in vinyle, perché i love ascoltare musica in vinyle e non in cd, in vinyle the record sounds great, benissimo! Affrettatevi e buy this record repressato in only 500 copie, la sola "the past that suits you best" vale la purchase. Tecnicamente ottima repress in 180 gram e il prezzo è very honest, considerando che used costava too much. Thanks Norman Records, bravo!

PS: Sorry for my lingua inglese, i write from Italia. Shipping velocissimo da UK!

8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 25th June 2015

The Delgados make understated indie rock anthems that are supplemented by brass and flutes, kind of like The Velvet Underground meets Grimethorpe Colliery Band, if you will. “The Great Eastern” is probably the album they’ll be most fondly remembered for. It was released in 2000 and produced by Dave Fridman, the in-demand producer of the time who had worked wonders with The Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev.

Their songs have lovely verses that are neatly arranged but it’s their ability to write heart-wrenchingly melodic choruses to these songs that is most outstanding. The best example on here is “American Trilogy”, a truly great song. “Accused of Stealing” starts like A Mo Tucker sung Velvet Underground song which changes tempo to a lovely lilting chorus. “Aye Today” and “Witness” are other stand-outs, but It’s all good, and you should definitely own it.
