I'm picking it up tomorrow (assuming Best Buy gets it in), I've heard the single once and it was decent.

I'll post some impressions when I get it.

Edit:

Just checked the BB website, they have it listed at $9.99, so hopefully it will be in all stores as well.

The Velvet Revolver album is $9.99 as well.

I have um...had an advance release of the album since April.

It is very good...not on par with the Process of Belief, but very close.

Overture and Sinister Rouge are a solid way to start off the album...Bretts Guitar work on Sinister Rouge is infreakingsane.

Los Angeles is burning is catchy and a no brainer for the first single.

Beyond Electric Dreams is a great tune...A Boot Stamping on a Human Face is a slower song, and very different for BR.

The Empire Strikes First almost sounds like a re-hash of 21st Century Digital boy...but not nearly as good.

I actually like this album better than Process of Belief. Of course it's not as good as their older stuff but it's still damn good. Definitely a little less punk than some of their past efforts but damn if they don't have some catchy hooks and their song writing is still top notch. This is the album I would expect from a punk band in their 40's. I reccomend anyone who is a fan of any of there later work to pick this up.

I picked it up at BB this morning and got through about 3/4ths of it on the drive to work.

I liked what I heard a lot. It seems to have a little bit harder edge to it than Process of Belief, which is a plus in my book.
