The Pet Shop Boys release their 14th Album and the reviews have scored high. If you enjoyed their early albums then Hotspot is for you. For the collector there are some great formats to own. Hotspot is released on Vinyl, CD, Double CD (which includes the instrumentals) and for those who want nostalgia.. Cassette. If like me you preordered from their official website you would have got the 12″x12″ Hand Signed Art Print which sold out quickly.
HotSpot is a return to form and if the Disco 5 release rumours are true, then here’s hoping there are some HotSpot remixes to follow…
Mike Shinoda has released a very special limited edition of his perfect album Post Traumatic.
Limited to just 3000 copies worldwide the double coloured vinyl also holds a few additional surprises.
Firstly the album artwork is now a reflective foil cover making the album feel even more precious.
Secondly the 2LP vinyl album has been pressed on a cream coloured clear vinyl with the exclusive 10″ pressed on deep blue vinyl.
Lastly the Special Edition Post Traumatic 2LP Coloured Vinyl + 10” Includes 2 New Unreleased Songs.
The 10″ holds the treasures of 2 new songs called Prove You Wrong and What The Words Meant.
Post Traumatic as a music experience now feels complete and is the most engaging collection of short stories that I’ve ever encountered.

Here is mine with Mike Shinoda giving my box set a good vibe. 🕯
Having been a fan of Linkin Park and their music since the outset, their music (especially on vinyl) that I’ve collected over the years is undoubtly my most treasured vinyl that I own. For so many personal reasons. 🕯
I couldn’t make it this year to resident records in Brighton where I usually queue for 12+ hours at the front with Daz. However, he’s still done me proud by getting me the 2 releases that I was after.
Linkin Park Road To Revolution was released on vinyl for the first time for record store day this year. Numbered Black and Red splatter vinyl makes it a great looking piece. It also comes with the concert on DVD.
Noel Gallagher released the El Mexicano picture disc this year for record store day with exclusive remixes.
Limited to 2,000 worldwide making it a collectors piece for the new remixes alone.
Dualtone pressed a white variant of Cleopatra by The Lumineers for a very limited period of time. I believe this was for a radio station. This is the most limited edition of all the vinyl variants with numbers yet to be confirmed. I managed to get a copy which arrived just this week.
Cleopatra by The Lumineers has also been pressed on a Smoked Grey double LP set that was only available at the official store. There are bonus tracks on this vinyl format making it an attractive offering. Numbers pressed are unconfirmed but it is very limited. Mine arrived this week and the die cut cover is impressive.
The clear vinyl variant of Cleoaptra by The Lumineers was only available from Barnes and Noble stores in America for a short period of time. Numbers pressed are unconfirmed as yet but it seems that it is strictly limited. My copies arrived this week adding to the vinyl variant releases.
Limited to just 2,500 worldwide, the Starburst vinyl variant of Cleopatra by The Lumineers arrived at my door. Their new album should not be missed and is available as strict limited editions across vinyl formats. This starburst edition was only available at indie record stores across the USA.
The Lunineers after 4 years have released their 2nd album. Stand out tracks are Ophelia, Cleopatra and Angela.
Cleopatra has been released on a wide range of vinyl formats, including Indie store Grey & Black Starburst vinyl, an official store double LP smoked grey release which includes 4 bonus tracks. Barnes & Nobel have the Clear variant vinyl edition with Target having a black version with 3 extra tracks. There is also a white variant out there also.
Below is my signed CD edition. I will post follow ups as my vinyl variants arrive…
