Great album... plus two new songs

Sirens was easily one of the top five best albums of 2016. Up there with the big boys, like Bowie, Kanye, Frank Ocean and A Tribe Called Quest. Here, we have that same great album... plus two songs. The songs are good. The original album had lost none of its mesmerizing quality. But do two songs justify a reissue? Not for me. I’ll buy them individually and tack them onto my digital version of Sirens and save myself the $11 of rebuying the album for one added single.
Especially since the ending of Sirens (“History Lesson”) was the best album closer of the 2016. Tacking another song onto that is just unnecessary
Still, Nico is one of the most interesting artists in modern music. So if you don’t have the original Sirens, buy this thing. Now.
