I second this....mine arrived a little damaged but overall a great piece.I mentioned a bunch of magazines (besides the ones w/ 7''s!) a bit ago.
I have to say, I am thoroughly impressed with the Uncut Ultimate Guide
To mark the release of the expanded edition of his classic Sign O’ The Times album, we present the deluxe, remastered Ultimate Music Guide to a musical revolutionary. From Prince’s first recordings, to his superstar years, and the Vault recordings beyond. Featuring In-depth reviews of every...nme.backstreetmerch.com
I would suggest any fan get this. No advertisements and it is quite large. Besides a bunch of photos, of course, the content is really good. It has smaller stuff like chronicling all of Prince's backing bands, the different proteges, even a journalist reminiscing what it was like to interview him (there were rules!), etc.
But the real meat is that it goes through every single studio album, live albums, compilations, etc. and gives background, an overall score, and a track-by-track score. With S&H it came out to ~$21 to get to a U.S. address.
@NathanRicaud I don't know if you could get it sent to Australia (don't see why you couldn't) but I think you would especially dig the track-by-track breakdown. It reminds me of when we were discussing albums like Musicology and 3121 and you were naming particular tracks. Of course, no one has to agree w/ the ratings but it is a cool guide and really well done..
I am thoroughly impressed with it and all the content you get for the price. It is also well-bound/put together and has a collector's feel to it.
I received my RS issue but still waiting on the Musikexpress. Supposedly on back order and not been charged
