Please

Um...I have all of their studio albums and Passengers...

wow, do I feel inferior....

Oh well, it's mainly about the music for me, not the remixed solo part 17 for 'When I Look At the World' or something along those lines.

Don't worry! I have cds of:

Remastered Boy (Deluxe)
Remastered JT (Deluxe)
Non-remastered JT, from a Christmas a while ago
Best of '80-'90
HTDAAB
U2 iPod

and my dad has the cd and vinyl of UABRS (both with the edited electric co, unfortunately)

And i'm perfectly happy with it!
