Yeah, I got it. It's been online since about June. It's better than Electric Vision, but not better than Mass Romantic. Also, Jenny sings alot less on this one.

call me stupid, but i didn't know there was a Jenny in the band...

anyhow, i downloaded and listened to it about a month ago. was a little disappointed. didn't grab my attention like the past two records. maybe i'll give it another spin. matador had/has pre-order for $10 including a free 7" of an unreleased song.

Anybody who's done this... what's the shipping charge?

Stupid insistence on LP technology. What about the needs of technological slobs like me who neither use record players nor downloading services? What about my needs? (In other words, where's the bonus CD?)

Looking forward to this as their first two albums were fabulous.

The answer is....I'm not sure.

I ordered this and another CD and the shipping charge was $3.98. Not sure if it's cheaper with just one CD.

A friend gave me a copy of the cd a few months ago. I like it but not as much as the first two at this time.

At least it IS a good album. It'll take a bit of time to figure out where it fits in with the other two (wonderful) albums.

It's $9.99 and an ad-featured release at Best Buy this week, too. One of the local stores had at least two dozen copies on the shelf, which could be a good or a bad sign.

I picked this up today at BB. I've owned a copy for a few months that a free d/l and made a copy for me. I love this band so much I figured I'd buy it again.

All of the signs at BB said "$13.99 markdown taken at register" and I had to find an ad to make sure I wasn't confused in thinking it was on sale.

wow, this album really surprised me - I didn't think I would like this much. All the songs display a great sense of energy and the tunes - oh nice - memorable!

favourite song: "These Are the Fables"
