new kylie boxset including all her album's from the noughties: 'light years', 'fever', 'body language', 'x' & 'aphrodite'. personally these five albums hold the best artwork of kylie's career, thanks to the design firm "adjective noun" being in control of the art direction, it's a wonderful idea to celebrate such a strong phase in her career!
after a lonnnng time coming, this album is finally seeing the light of day, the artwork image released shows the sticker included, holding wynter's name but not the album title, everything feels slightly disjointed,but who cares, i want me some wynter times!!
recently performed on american idol's finale, unclear whether this is a promo single or the next official release from the '4' LP, either way the artwork is a pretty standard and straight forward affair...
silly simon...i kept forgetting to post the 'girls fall like dominoes' cover...then the possible 'did it on 'em' artwork appeared...then 'super bass' popped up! not sure what's official and what's a fan-made (as minaj's team don't seem to want to release these 'singles' as singles on itunes, with cover and all...), all i do know is they keep up the frothy 'n' pink visual theme and nicks looks fierce!
OH MY GAGA! i have never had to compose myself before writing a post before, but today i had to take several breaths and collect my thoughts before writing all this out...so let's start with the first hot piece o' info i've got for you. enter, 'aphrodite (the les folies tour edition)' :
it includes the original album, a remix CD and a...THIRD...CD... a megamix of the hits of 'aphrodite'. check out the back cover below:
3 CDs is usually enough to make me wet myself (i'm sorry, but vulgarity is called for when you see what's coming next!) but then comes, 'aphrodite (the goddess edition)'.... :
this isn't the final cover artwork, it's just words..but i feel this next part needs a few more moments introduction before i unveil the sheer amazingness of what's to come...
A POP-UP, HARDBACK PHOTO ALBUM AND COLLECTOR'S EDITION OF THE ALBUM!!
here's some preliminary images of what will be included. obviously a mini kylie...
the "final" layout, said to include behind the scenes images, costume sketches and interviews with key members in the tour's production
another one of the pop-ups, "the stage"
even the album's disc will be presented in it's own "blossoming" pop-up, if you aren't crying with glee right now..what is wrong with you?!? i think this edition will only include the original album, but with all this epic, limited edition-ness going on that does not bother me!
this is the official blog to see more behind the scenes action and preliminary sketches...
really not sure if this is a fan-made or not, if it's yours please tell me :) i prefer it so much more then the other artwork haha, this whole era's artwork has been a mess in my opinion, except 'poison', that was hot tamale! though it's not held back her success, well done nicky.
image of the actual artwork of the 10th anniversary edition! comes in two forms, the 2 CD/ 1 DVD collector's edition:
and the 2 CD deluxe edition (which i posted a month ago)
the editions will both contain the original album, digitally remastered and a second disc of "bonus songs from the era, alternate versions and live versions all hand-picked by alicia", the collector's edition will be housed in a 24-page oversized booklet and will contain a further 6 more bonus songs on and a DVD of a "brand new documentary: 'the making of songs in a minor' plus music videos"...excited much??
the actual single artwork for her latest 'teenage dream' single (one of the best songs in my opinion), kind of feeling the remixes cover slightly more, but this still carries off the humour-theme pretty well, the video is going to be insane! :)
what looks like the official artwork for each individual 12" vinyl has surfaced...even if this isn't the finished product, it definetly looks like previously unreleased images from the album's nick knight photoshoot!
not sure what is happening with Blogger..hope the posts that disappeared come back... anywho, to tide us over, gaga just released images of the "fan package" and "collector's edition" of 'born this way'..see, feeling better already! "fan package" comes with the deluxe version of the cd and vinyl and a little monster 'i.d.' card, which can be used for future special offers (?!) ...excited much?
"collector's edition" includes 9 12" picture-disc vinyls that contains the standard edition of the album, and a personal message from the gargs' etched onto each one, a 24"x24" 'little monster mosaic' poster (made up of images uploaded by fans) and the 'i.d' card also, all packaged in an individually numbered boxset!
just so you know, i pre-ordered both...more money then sense? no. more monster then sense!!
