I must be the only person who thinks Seldom Seen Kid is in the bottom half of their catalog quality wise. I like it, but think Leaders of the Free World and Asleep in the Back are far better.

I'm debating to just buy this from Amazon.ca or wait for a domestic release.

Someone told me it was also available on iTunes today.

What's going on with these wacky release dates? Whatever, I ordered my Canadian copy, I'm not buying a second one on iTunes.

Must be.

...

I go back and forth between SSK and Leaders as my favorite. I lean towards SSK most of the time, as it feels more mature and cohesive, but then Leaders feels like it's reach is broader, from Leaders of the Free World to two of the best (if not the two best) intimate songs they've done, Everthere and Great Expectations.

That song is one of my favourites on TSSK, actually. A sexy, decadent little number

Mirrorball is the sexy, decadent song of SSK. I want to hear that one now, it's good late night fare anyway.

Haven't heard anything from the album yet, and you guys aren't inspiring me. Dammit, elfa.

If my opinion means anything to you, ElMel (and it should ), I think this is a fantastic album and you should pick it up. Maybe there isn't anything groundbreaking here, but there are some real gorgeous gems.

I will say that IMO, The Birds alone is worth the price of admission - which I assume for you will be free

I totally forgot about the US delay and went to the store expecting to pick it up along with R.E.M. yesterday. Oh well, I'm not buying on iTunes, I'm listening to the leak until I can get myself a US CD.

It's a gorgeous album, and I would say for the most part it's a step up from SSK (so u2popmofo, no you aren't the only one who thinks that way), but there's no real new ground here musically, production-wise there's some new ground though. ATM my two favorite tracks segue into each other: Lippy Kids (reminds me of the sound that made me fall in love with them with Asleep in the Back), and With Love (love that vocal interplay. But I gotta give it more complete listens.

I just got my CD! I wasn't expecting it for another week!

Dear Canadian Amazon and DHL:

Thanks, eh?

All the Tim Horton's stops between Amazon Canada's distribution center and your place must have been closed.
