20th Anniversary 140G Recycled Black Vinyl LP

Limit: 1 per customer

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the band’s seminal album with the first repress since its original release in 2002.

Their third album, this reissue continues to celebrate the band’s legacy and catalogue following the reissues of ‘Captain’ in November 2020 and ‘Warnings/Promises’ in November 2021. In an exclusive interview with Dig!, Roddy Woomble shared his thoughts on the importance of this record to the band's history… “Simply speaking, ‘The Remote Part’ is the most popular, commercially successful record that Idlewild ever made. None of our other records achieved that level of popularity. So it’s the defining record for the group.”

Upon its original release, the album was met with huge critical acclaim with the NME saying “It's every ounce of Idlewild's potential fulfilled at once” and Mojo agreeing… “Sounding assured and triumphant, Scotland's finest finally have realised their true potential”, while Rolling Stone saw this as the album that made them stand out above their peers… “They ratchet up the latent R.E.M.-isms, elevating themselves heads above their musical kin” and Uncut defined it as a huge progression for the band… “The Remote Part is Idlewild Mark II--sleeker, bolder, better“.

The release is pressed on 140g recycled vinyl in a gatefold sleeve.
