I haven't heard anything yet, not even the single, but am really looking forward to the album. A pop blog I like was underwhelmed by the first single, but had really great things to say about the rest of the album.

When does the whole thing come out on iTunes, again?

Simon & Nick are on Mark Ronson's radio show tonight from 8pm ET (which is about 1am UK time)- talking about the new album and playing Man Who Stole a Leopard

have adopted the same approach I used for NLOTH- "they're playing it on radio/TV so it's not cheating" - so in advance of the radio show, I found the leaked version on you tube- and oh my god- 6mins and 12 seconds of utter brilliance

have only heard 4 of the eventual 12 or 13 tracks that will comprise the complete album- but they've definitely re-awakened the inner durannie in me.

9 tracks get released 21 December- and if you're in Europe "From Mediterranea with Love" will also be out before Christmas- that contains a song called Mediterranea

there is a physical cd release in Feb with 3 or 4 extra tracks

Thanks! I'm glad to hear there's a physical release coming later; I don't like iTunes-only releases.

yeah I know what you mean- it's good for odd tracks, but I'm old enough to prefer having a physical cd (even if it ends up on the ipod straight away!)

I think the only track of the leaks that sort of has to grow on me still is Mediterranea. Other than that, the other three or four hit me straight in the face. Girl Panic is fantastic!

i gave in. since the itunes version of the album has leaked, i had to listen. what the hell, i'll be buying it off itunes as well as the cd when it comes out.

the album's awesome. easily blows all their post-85 output out of the water, which is saying a lot since some of those albums are in my top five albums of theirs. i've only listened to the album once and didn't think of posting in here until i was halfway done so i don't have any spoogetastic play-by-play responses to any song in particular, but it's all great. i can say even though guest vocalists isn't usually their thing, in both cases it fits within the song so it's not like they pulled a blige and upstaged poor simon.

the couple songs i can remember really loving (though there's no weak song on here) are being followed, safe, girl panic, and the man who stole a leopard.

definitely worth adding to your...record collection hahahaha!

zomg I'm really excited to hear it now.

I'll hold out for the actual release (iTunes - I can't wait until February!) rather than find a leak, since it's only a week away.
