Pretty disappointing they feel the need to re-release these same tracks under a new collection once more. Is there really any need?

A much better collection than the first with the full versions and no short edits, and over twice as long...

Not available to US market yet...

Re: A Collection 2 (Surprise Release?)
I can't imagine why this collection exists. Odd selection of tracks too. The total runtime is longer than 2 CD's, so I imagine this is a digital-only release.

Track selection doesn't surprise at all, it's pretty much what's on 1992-2002, 1992-2012 and full versions of what's on A Collection.
The addition of the two tracks from the Olympics opening ceremony are fine and all, but I agree, there's no reason for this to exist. Is it legit?

PS the artwork is just the negative of A Collection, with a 2 slapped on it. This smells fake to me, like that dodgy Orbital best of a few years back. Yet it has the Smith Hyde and Universal music credits. ?

Re: A Collection 2 (Surprise Release?)
I do recall looking for Collection 1 late last year and it wasn't readily available digitally in the US. Perhaps it went out of print?

Not sure. I had purchased the CD of Collection 1 on Amazon. Nothing comes up for 2, however, I was able to purchase it on the Japan iTunes. It is an odd release, but I believe it to be legit. It could possibly be a 3 CD release... 2 full CD's and a mini 3" CD... not too much of a surprise for either a Japanese, German, or Australian release...

I'm sure if this gets a physical release it'll only be available as an import out here in the states.

Re: A Collection 2 (Surprise Release?)
It's very common for legacy groups to release or reissue Best Of's when they have a new album out. It makes sense to have a compilation readily available for people who may discover them because they sound like Sleaford Mods.

I digress but it drives me nuts that Beautiful Burnout isn't on any of the compilations. It's a fucking masterpiece.

Re: A Collection 2 (Surprise Release?)
