What's special about the lmtd ed?
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Quote from: moonshiner
anybody know what's going to be on the limited edition release of Hail to the Thief? it's just a different cover and costs more money, for all i can tell...


Basically it's just different packaging. No extra tracks or nothing like that. The packaging is gonna be incredible from what I gather and from the fact that the Amnesiac limited edition was incredible.


Thanks to Dirk for this.

Didn't have it? WTF? Sold out? Perhaps I'll have to go elsewhere. Either way, I'm getting the LE even if I have to track it down.

I've only allowed myself to listen to five songs, "2+2=5," "There There," "A Punch Up At A Wedding," "Sail to the Moon," and "A Wolf at the Door". So a majority of the record will be a surprise to me.

I like the LE book but I don't know what to do with the case.  I don't know if I should take the poster that the LE booklet folds out into and take it out of the book and actually use it (i'm thinking not).

I went at midnight last night at a local record store and there was about 75 people lined up for it.

I had only heard There There and 2+2=5 before today. I'm now on my third straight spin...it always takes me a few days to get a total grasp on a record, but as of now, my favorites would be = A Punch Up At A Wedding and Wolf At The Door, and also a few more that I don't know the names or track numbers of yet, because at this point the record is still, for me, an ungelled mass of awesomeness.

I think that song changed names to Fog and was a b-side for Amnesiac.  The studio version of Fog is UNBELIEVABLY GORGEOUS
