Well here's the compact disc in its box. As you can see the sleeve is quite nice.
Don't worry everyone — this album INCLUDES 'BLACK AND GOLD'.
A relief all round. Nice to have that cleared up.
What's the tracklisting?
'Packed with future hits', no doubt. As long as they don't release the shit ones. Best bits are '21st Century Life', 'Sick' (which has been reworked from the one you may already have heard), 'Pocket', 'Cut Me Loose' and 'Sally'.
Let's see if the package comes with any annoying bits of paper aimed at clawing back cash lost due to The Death Of The Music Industry. Bingo!
It's ringtones ahoy for the Sam Sparro fan. These ringtones cost THREE POUNDS, meaning that the album is worth £36 if you only want to hear bits of the songs in low quality. Tip: buy the album digitally, convert the songs to a lower bitrate and chop the beginning and end off every song. It will not only save your money but increase the value of your £7.99 purchase. In these difficult economic times we should warn you that the same idea does NOT work with property. Destroying your house then flooding the place with concrete in order to reduce the size of each room will actually DECREASE the value of your home.
What's on the reverse of this piece of paper?
Worra copout eh viewers? Although when people who buy this CD inevitably make a copy for their friends this will provide a nice CD inlay. Thanks, Modus Vivendi Music / Island Records!
Let's look inside the box.
Lyrics — very nice. "I know you fancy yourself as a sexy bitch." "It's a small world, what a tired cliche, but it's a small world." "I get so red hot mad thinking about that dirty old man." "Black and gold." Those are some of the lyrics.
What's on the reverse?
Nice pictures of Sam Sparro in a variety of costumes.
The question, now, is what is lurking behind the CD itself. On the Goldfrapp album artwork it was a picture of an owl-headed lady with her front bottom showing. What does Sam Sparro offer?
A nice picture of a 'Sparro'. READERS! Have you removed a compact disc from its box to find a picture of an owl, a sparrow or any other winged beast? If so please contact us at the usual address.
