The Ideal Copy is the fourth studio album by the English rock group Wire Mute Records released the album. The person who gave this album 1 star because it's too 'repetitive' should realize that the only song that he does like 'still shows' is the most repetitive song on this album. Anyway, I absolutely love this album, and not just because I love the band. Every song on this album is unique and very well-composed. Although I don't care much for 'Madman's Honey' all the rest of the tracks are wonderful, including the many bonus tracks (the amount of bonus tracks equals that to the original album)
