The Special Edition includes the original CD release - see Mike Rimmer's review - along with an additional DVD included in the box. The DVD, in 4:3 format, has an easy to use menu giving access to the "Wires" video, a behind-the-scenes documentary and some live footage and tracks from the Shepherds Bush Empire. The music loops behind the menu are only 20 odd seconds long so don't leave it on the menu for long. The documentary is the band chatting about making the album whilst sitting in a basement and then in the studio where they recorded the album. The live footage is of "Wires" and "Tourist" and the tracks, with a montage of band artwork and photos playing on the screen, are "New Project", "Vehicles And Animals", "You Got The Style" and "Shake Those Windows". Worth getting the special edition just to find out a bit more about the band.
