Quote from Paul about the origins of Six. 'Six' refers to Patrick McGoohan's character he created for himself in the 1960s TV show, 'The Prisoner'. His character was simply known as Number 6 and he was a prisoner in a village. Of course the album title is actually referring to myself. After all the madness of 'Attack of the Grey Lantern' hitting number 1 in the album charts this is what I'd felt I'd become; living in hotels, airports and tour buses, a prisoner of a commercial record.

Six ‎(CD, Album, RE, RM + 2xCD, Album + DVD-V, Album, Mu). Kscope. Outstanding pressing of a phenomenal album. The production, mixing, mastering leaves close to nothing to be improved upon. The stereo imaging, sound stage and detail are breathtaking, rock albums aren't supposed to sound this good. Quite possibly my favourite LP. The album itself is criminally underrated, and as for the vinyl, good god if only people knew. Analogue vinyl transfer here. Reply Notify me 5 Helpful.

This is supposed to be limited to 500 copies (as stated by Paul Draper on his Facebook page), but I find that very hard to believe.
Yla
I am delighted with my copy. Excellent pressing and package of a superb album. Highly recommended.
elektron
Most of what's good about the original layout is missing. They should have replicated the book on faux parchment format of the original (especially given this larger format), with the rest of what's new in this new version as extra. What we get is a slimmer volume than the AOTGL reissue. It's good, but could've been much better.
Landamath
My Green copy sounds great a nice quiet pressing though I agree would have been much nicer with the colourful labels
Qane
Mine came in the sleeve for the black vinyl, so wrong label number on the sleeve.

Mine came in the sleeve for the black vinyl, so wrong label number on the sleeve.

Disappointing packaging...boring white labels, no lyrics and a lot of the original artwork missing. Seems a bit half-baked in that area, which is surprising, but never mind. The most important thing is the music and fortunately, that sounds fantastic. Great job done there all round. Flawless pressing, and it's great to finally be able to buy an affordable vinyl version of this amazing album.
Unsoo
My thoughts exactly. (but the lyrics ARE printed on the second inner sleeve by the way). Generally, I feel let down by this one's design - Grey Lantern had the original label design - and better shade of colour vinyl for the purple one (I don't like the spearmint green - would have been better translucent holly / bottle green - or the blue). The very least they could have done if they wanted to redesign/ reconfigure the vinyl edition plus the gatefold artwork is to have the same colour labels as on the 4-disc super deluxe edition. What a wasted opportunity!
Walianirv
What I don't understand is why haven't they reproduced the (superior) original vinyl labels from the first pressing back in 1998 - which were dark bottle green - and instead plumped for these boring nondescript white labels which make it look like (a) a promo edition or, worse (b) a New Order album? I think even the inner gatefold art is different this time around as well, so this technically is not a 'straight' 21st anniversary repress so to speak, but a 'revision/redesign/reconfiguration' of the original sleeve art. I feel disappointed now and having second thoughts about purchasing this edition (even though I never had the original vinyl version either - just the CD).
Ximathewi
Oh I WILL be buying it for sure.... but it's still a disappointing repackage for the vinyl. I will go for the clear one as I don't like the blue or green colours at all. The Grey Lantern purple one was beautiful though. :))
Thozius
Wow! You aren't going to buy this release because of LABEL? If so, you are missing out and I have no idea why.
Zepavitta
i didnt notice at first, or at least wasn't bothered by it but now that you mentioned it....maybe i was just too excited by the mere fact that this is finally on vinyl.
Ienekan
Mine came mislabelled with 2 disc 1's. Records are fine though.
Enalonasa
My Blue Vinyl copy also came with mislabeled disc 2 as well, Green and Clear were both fine.
Kagrel
My copy also has disc 1 labels on both disc's and an annoying click on side3 intro...poor quality control at pressing plant imo

Kscope have acquired rights to Mansun’s back catalogue. The ground-breaking label will roll out a reissue campaign over eighteen months that will cover the band’s entire history and enhance their reputation as one of the most iconic and innovative bands of the 90s.Mansun’s four albums – Attack of the Grey Lantern (1997), Six (1998), Little Kix (2000) and the compilation Kleptomania (2004) – were originally issued by Parlophone. The Kscope reissues will bring these classic records into the modern age by delving into a treasure trove of previously unreleased audio and visual material while fully remastering the original recordings for 5.1 and deluxe 180gm vinyl.http://www.kscopemusic.com/2017/11/07/kscope-acquire-the-iconic-mansun-back-catalogue/

One of the greatest albums ever made IMO. A masterpiece
Xangeo
Reissue this at once you absolute BEASTS! Easily one of the best albums of the nineties.

I have a dream that this classic progressive album gets a repress on vinyl. Please, powers that be, please.
Akta
This U.S.-released version of "Six" is largely a strangely neutered affair; it features the short Arthur Baker mix edit of the song "Six", it's missing the tracks "Inverse Midas" and "Witness To A Murder (Part Two)", and most of the tracklisting is reordered. Oh, and the cover art is dumbed down to look like a page of a book (not that the original cover art was very good, but at least it felt like someone had put some effort into it). Granted, this is a remarkably difficult and confusing album to listen to for the unprepared listener, one that rebuffs casual attempts to permeate its chaos; so the record company's attempt to do anything possible make it more palatable to the average US "commercial alternative radio" listener is actually fairly humorous. Considering that much of the UK version of the album is intended to flow from one song to the next, the resultant altered tracklisting on the US version is a shrug-worthy jumble. That said, the songs are still great, obviously. It just isn't presented as the group intended.
Bolanim
It's such a shame this album never attained the status it deserved. Their first album, which was nowhere near as good as "Six" (though it was still pretty great), got a deluxe 3-CD treatment. But this one, it should've had the royal treatment. Utterly out of step and brash, weird just for the peculiar rush of being this damned weird. Like a jigsaw puzzle wherein all the pieces fit together, but up close it looks like complicated chaos, and the picture isn't at all comprehensible until you're standing a mile back from it. The cover of it really is shit, though. Even Paul Draper says so.
BlessСhild
Six will be reissued next year with a 5.1 mix, according to Paul Draper. Good news for us six fans!
Kahavor
For more grandiose kicks get onto Kaada and Patton's Romances album. Not quite as progressive as Six but equally as ambitious and original.

Winnie-the-Pooh Wins Wars“And you see, I kind of shivered to conformity. Did you see the way I cowered to authority? You see, my life, it's a series of compromises anyway. It's a sham, and I'm conditioned to accept it all, you see.” Mansun were one of the first bands who returned to progressive rock and lifted it to the new stormy heights of modern neo-psychedelia. And brainless music critics, who shy from everything new, started stinking to high heaven that in our age of simplicity there is no place for such artful misfits and perverts. Where are they now? But Six sounds these days greater than ever. To hell with compromises!
Helldor
Can't fucking believe I sold my copy of this. Kicking myself. Yeah, I was skint at the time and needed the money - but there were others that should have gone instead of this. One of my regrets. :(

Outstanding pressing of a phenomenal album. The production, mixing, mastering leaves close to nothing to be improved upon. The stereo imaging, sound stage and detail are breathtaking, rock albums aren't supposed to sound this good. Quite possibly my favourite LP. The album itself is criminally underrated, and as for the vinyl, good god if only people knew. Edit: This album was recorded onto 2" tape, not digital. Analogue vinyl transfer here.
Conjuril
Mansun's second album is often described as a radical departure from the debut "Attack of the Grey Lantern". This statement is true in a way, but doesn't mean Mansun had changed totally. You can still hear some techniques typical for the band, only this time they'd been intentionally complicated. "Six" is somewhat derisive take on so-called progressive rock, mixed with catchy pop, madchester rave, punk energy and dandy new romantic manner. One can never predict the direction of music, because it changes constantly and out of the blue. This makes "Six" a challenging, sometimes uneasy record. But it's worth it - beneath complex structures lie fantastic tunes and a healthy shot of irony. Too bad it's all over now, it was one of the best bands ever.
