ANNOUNCEMENT


After three long years of waiting, it's finally here, the Japanese chronicles, X1and X2 box sets. Between two boxes there are eight disks and a total of 79 tracks, making this a collector's fantasy. Included in the boxes are three disks full of twelve inch mixes, one with instrumentals, a B-sides disk, two live CD's and one called "strange mixes".


These CD's are a must have collector's item, but unfortunately they're not going to be around forever.


Apparently, Alfa Records has only made a limited number of copies and the boxes are now out of print. We do not know if there are any plans to re-release the collection, but chances are they won't.


In addition to their limitedness, some listeners might find it annoying that the first three disks all contain mixes of "Strangelove", "Personal Jesus", "Enjoy the Silence" and "Everything Counts".


This makes listening very redundant.


Another thing some people might find a little annoying is the fact that none of the credits mention which single the track originally appeared on.


It would have been nice to list this for the benefit of those who are still trying to collect the original singles.


At any rate, X1 and X2 will make a great edition to any music collection, and we highly recommend them to all Depeche Mode fans.
