The Deluxe Edition that I have has all audio tracks (the original album plus the nine b-sides) one one disc, and the video tracks on a DVD disc. I don't know if there's an LP version that included the b-sides on a second disc, but, as far as I know, the deluxe edition (in CD format) has all the b-sides on the same disc as everything else, contrary to what the article states. Heck, I'm currently listening to "Don't Make Fun of Daddy's Voice", and there's been no change of CD since before "I Have Forgiven Jesus".--Waterj2 02:57, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

Chart position[edit]

Whoever it is that keeps changing the chart position to #2, would you please stop. It's pathetic. The album was #1 and that's all there is to it. For goodness sake, there are at least two other people who are changing it back to #1 after you've vandalised it, and you still don't get the message. Then, you have the nerve to get us banned for trying to fix it. You are a moron, and I am not going to stop fixing it to #1, so get used to it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

This tone of voice and the refusal to discuss the matter isn't helping your case. Because of your tone, I am going to revert to the last version and protect the article to stop the edit warring. If you can provide a verifiable reference, I am more than willing to let your edit stick, but please be aware that Wikipedia does not tolerate personal attacks. --Nlu (talk) 18:54, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

I'm the person who keeps changing the chart position to #2. Why? Because every source I've seen tells me that the album reached #2 on the chart: True To You, a semi-official fansite, Passions Just Like Mine, a comprehensive discography, and Morrissey-Solo, a news source. Why would three credible Morrissey fan sites claim the album reached a lower position than it actually did? They wouldn't. If you can cite multiple, reliable sources which state the the album went to #1, you can change it and I won't contest. If not, I will continue to work to ensure that the correct information remains on the page.

There isn't a dispute here. It was a #1 album, no questions asked. I can't believe you idiots can keep on thinking you're right when the evidence is stacked against you horribly. It has been edited by other people to say it's #1! I read it had got to #1 on Ceefax when it came out! For god's sake, the sticker on the box says #1 Album! This is pathetic!!! I'm right, you're wrong, and that's all there is to it. It's a #1 album and I'm right. It's not even like this mistake is without precedent. You've made loads of mistakes with chart positions on this site.

If you continue to give people incorrect information, you're not much of an encyclopedia, are you?

#1 Album[edit]

I can't wait until you realise you were wrong the whole time, and that it was in fact a #1 album like I've been saying it was. I'll be expecting a little article on here apologising as well, since you've basically been making me and other people correcting it as vandals for the last few months. Can't be logn now until you realise you've lost.

Not long now[edit]

Not long now until you'll have to admit you were wrong and change it to #1 album.

By the way, since I have nothing to prove I'm not actually checking any sources. I know I'm right, so why should I have to look for evidence? That's up to you. I'll look forward to seeing the corrected page and not having to edit it any more to compensate for your lack of intellect.

Please see [1]. There is your evidence. Now please refute it. Acegikmo1 22:40, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Actually, I'm also convinced it was a Number 1 album and I remember hearing it referenced by Johnathan Ross when it came out as being a number one album as well as reading several mini biographies in magazines which said #1. Having said that, I can't actually find any sources to suggest this. I'm very confused and even though i'm convinced, I suggest keeping it as #2 until (if) a source saying otherwise is found.

Can't find it listed as #1[edit]

None of the souces I can find, including The Official UK Charts company list the album as number 1.

Request unprotection?[edit]

This page has been protected for about three weeks now, with no substantive discussion until recently. Can we unprotect the page, or at least move it to semi protection? Calwatch 06:37, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

To the user who keeps changing the chart position to #1[edit]

I (and others) cannot find a reliable source stating this album was #1. Wikipedia is not the place for original research, so please verify your information on the chart position and cite your sources, before changing the chart position again. If not, your edits will be considered a factual error and be reverted again and again. --Stijn Vermeeren 12:05, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Chart Drama[edit]

The Official Moz zine ( ) lists YATQ as #2, the official UK album chart site does not include YATQ as a #1 album, and the man himself has joked about Keane getting the top spot in the UK. I know this wont halt the work of the vandals who continue to retroactivly award the album with a #1 berth but hopefully they will tire of this stupid game and allow the facts to remain as they are.

Prog Rock?[edit]

Seriously? Prog rock? I am guessing this is because some of the tracks on Southpaw Grammar were over 6 minutes long? Surely prog rock needs more than length as a defining characteristic if the genre? EDROCKS 05:19, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

I'm not going to edit article because I don't really care, but what sort of bitter fan boy wrote this article? It's appalling. Sort it out. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:46, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
