  1. Where are my SoE Pre=Orders?

    ...it would be interesting to know how many people have bought the album twice as a result of it not arriving in the mail on time?... just saying.
  2. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Listening to this album constantly since Saturday and I'm really pleased to say I love it. The end.
  3. Where are my SoE Pre=Orders?

    ...correction. It’s just arrived.
  4. Where are my SoE Pre=Orders?

    Hi guys, i received an email last night to say that my vinyl will be with me by the end of the day on 12th December as it was shipped on the 30th November. They couldn’t send tracking codes for international orders. I’m in the uk. Just thought you should know. Mike
  5. Where are my SoE Pre=Orders?

    Agree completely. I waited in all day Friday for it to arrive because I was convinced it would arrive on the 1st. I don’t suppose there is anything that can be done about it now. It could actually be on its way and maybe it’s Royal Mail that are delayed?? Wouldn’t know though, as I have no tracking number. Keep me posted though. Would love to know when other people receive theirs.
  6. Where are my SoE Pre=Orders?

    ...maybe the money takes a while to clear in those offsure accounts. JOKE! !
  7. Where are my SoE Pre=Orders?

    Exactly the same as me, Paul. Nothing yet though. And as gman70 says, feel misled. Loving all the pictures of everyone with their beautiful blue vinyl though! You know, just to rub it in!
  8. Where are my SoE Pre=Orders?

    Yeah, I checked my account and it was taken November 1st. An email would at least be something.
  9. Where are my SoE Pre=Orders?

    ...me too. Just sent them an indignant message over there at Live Nation. I’m sure they’re deeply concerned having had my money for over a month and probably making more money than I earn a year in interest in that time. ..It’s the little things....
  10. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I’m going to stand by what I said, I think it’s a great album and it may not be better but I think it’s sitting with their stronger stuff of the last 20 years. Production wise, I’m loving the sonicness. I’m loving the melodies, especially the vocal parts on the chorus parts. I think there are elements of fun and seriousness that are juxtaposed cleverly. One of my favourite tracks from htdaab was fast cars... kind of similar to some of the expressions here. A bit like baby face on Zooropa. I’m going to enjoy listening to this and exploring it with a smile as opposed to a cynical frown! It is what it is. For me anyway...
  11. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Okay, Okay we're on the same page :).... Now, back to THIS album... will these songs stand up against any of the aforementioned in our previous conversation...? you'll have to give me at least a week, but I sincerely think there will be moments that do... Definitely not the Refu-Jesus line but others, certainly. Keep me posted!
  12. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Since you put it like that... let's have a think...? 13 songs that could be picked since AB that would be better than AB on an album if released now... including SOE... Zooropa Numb Lemon Stay The First Time ... that's just off one album... Can't be done!!
  13. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    But you can't replicate anything that has been or happened in the past as everything is completely unique, even ,my opinion of this album and all past albums I have ever heard. I've just finished it for the first time and it's going on again. It's definitely better than the last two albums in my opinion upon first listen. Now I just have to convince myself it goes further into the back catalogue.
  14. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I competently agree. If it is TRUE then it must be right what ever the media. I feel this is a true album.
  15. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    No, you're absolutely right. It's not the best thing since Achtung Baby! That's the beer, anticipation and the will for it to be the best album in the world talking. But excusing my excitement to join in with the celebration, which I've missed, I love the groove of the album and the uplifting energy. Previous comment redacted. (Still enjoying the album though and it could be the best since...)
