Disc 1 with a remastered album, Sean replaying the drums hopefully on the tracks! Disc 2 B sides, demos and live tracks. DVD band interview about the album, all the videos in great quality, old band interviews and live performances.

PLEASE!

Closest we'll get to 'real' drums will be the hopefully included radio session tracks (would love to have clear quality versions of the Methadone Pretty and Natwest...radio sessions) I'd bet on an alternative bomb squad mix of Repeat in there too ,have I just put a dampner on the whole reissue now ?

I really don't like the idea of re-recording the drums for the main disc, I don't like the idea of rewriting history like that. I'd also imagine there's no way to make it actually sound like it fits without re-recording the rest of the songs too and that'd be even worse. Hope they won't do it. The closest thing they should do is add the American version re-recordings on the bonus disc but that's it.

Plus I've gotten too used to the drum machine sounds, they're an integral part of the album's sound!

When I listen to GT I don't hear a drum machine (maybe I would if I was a drummer) but I do hear a lot of 80s EQ, scooped guitar and a James that can't sing very well.

Don't see the point of changing it a little bit.

Entirely, but I would content that some of his most technical guitar work is on that album.

James sounds pretty good on GT IMHO.

I guess the drums re-recording isn't as important, personally I think the remastering of the tracks for National Treasures was superb, the same job for the rest of the album and I'm happy!

James' voice is great on GT, I think it's just so unique his early voice.

Suicide Alley and Motown Junk, those are songs where his voice is weak. On GT it's fine unless you're the kind of person who prefers his more recent Robbie Williams/Gary Barlow/Matt Cardle impersonations.

Then a year later on GATS it was in its prime.

I'm afraid he does a bit. Not much. But enough for it to be a worry.
