I hear Neil's comments on the lyrics are quite short. Good thing I didn't buy it.

Virtually all those songs have been commented extensively before in booklets to album reissues, issues of Literally etc. In this book, comments on the lyrics are just nice dessert, not the main thing.
The main value of this book is that the lyrics are formatted properly — with the right punctuation, line and sentence breaks, emphasis etc. The authoritative source of what the lyrics and song titles actually are.

Oh, not opened mine! That photo was taken by David Walliams. Maybe it’s one of The I-V or just both standard and limited side by side

I bet David Walliams didn't have the trouble we have all gone though. :roll: I still haven't even seen the book I doubt I ever will! :roll: :evil: What a farce this all has been. **rolls even bigger eyes**.

And how can people tell it's Neil's signature? 122 quid? My word!

Digital stores uk and Hermes stuffed up as they sent fans who ordered one book TWO copies. See attached pic. It’s shocking. We should all kick up a huge fuss about this
So the guy who received two numbered copies of this book (one by accident), has put the 'spare' on ebay ; )
