I will be popping along to my local record shop and buying it. Then taking it with me to work and subjecting co-workers and customers to it.

Was at the acoustic set in Fopp(record store), glasgow, the other week, I liked what I heard of the new stuff, El Capitan acoustic was

I love the new Idlewild

Tickets for their gig went on sale here last week, they are really cheap as far as concert tickets go, I'd love to go see them but I need someone to go with.

How long do the UK orders take to arrive? How much was shipping? Maybe I should cancel this one and order from the UK site. Not sure what to do, I want to hear that CD right now!!!!!

Import price from .com - $23.99
converted US dollars price from .co.uk - $20.00 with shipping.

2.
You'll have it in less than a week.

Digi, thanks for the advice. I cancelled my order and switched it to Amazon UK. I also added their first release, 'Captain' to the order for virtually the same price I was going to spend for only Warnings/Promises from the US site.

Hopefully it all ships soon, I'm not even going to be here next week when it arrives.

Great article review of the new album I found:

Idlewild - Warnings/Promises
By Laila Hassani

The imminent return of Idlewild is a welcome one. With Keane, Maroon 5, Bloc Party, Doves and, soon, Coldplay, inevitably boring us at every turn with dull, washed-out indie, we need something.

An injection of invention. A hint of excitement. Melodies to swoon over. Lyrics with more depth than your average Jet song. Non-drippy alt rock with some thought put into it.

Their fourth full-length is first to feature 'new' guitarist Allan Stewart and bassist Gavin Fox (from Dublin rockers Turn), collaborating on writing duties with the other three members.

With singer Roddy Woomble living in New York's East Village and the others scattered across the UK and Eire, the band decamped to the States and set up home in LA to record with Tony Hoffer (Beck, Phoenix, Air).

Whether all this, or simply age, has had an effect on the band and their songs, who knows.

All that can be said is that in the 10 years since their formation, Idlewild have gone from being four young men in an unpredictable, uncontrollable whirlwind of chaotic art-rock, to a mature (don't freak out) quintet who pen songs of ingenious proportions.

The cringeworthy title of new single 'Love Steals Us From Loneliness' aside, it's the perfect start to 'Warning / Promises'.

Beautiful harmonising and a chorus laced with dry lyrics, it firms up Idlewild's place as the UK's very own REM.

A band who, despite their size up until recent years, were always miles ahead of their peers in the creativity stakes. And that is where Idlewild stand today in the UK scene.

As the latest Doves album bores us all to tears with more Manc miserablism (tell that to Berry, Miss Hassani – Ed) and bands like The Others focus on style and scene over content and music, Idlewild are a breath of fresh air. None of those bands would ever have the capability of writing a song like 'El Capitan' and 'Disconnected', themes of being in transition and love.

There's no doubting this band have softened over the years, but there's still a trace of their rock-heavy roots in the angular sounds of 'I Want A Warning'. It might not quite be 'A Modern Way Of Letting Go' or 'Film For The Future', but it's still a welcome addition to a collection of mellow songs and slots in alongside 'I Understand It' and the rest of this album snugly.

Naysayers can write them off as a student band all they want, but Idlewild have grown up beyond that. They're upping the ante, taking things further, and bringing some Morrissey-style contemplation and intelligence back to music. For that, they should be thanked and adored.

My Idlewild CDs shipped from Amazon UK this morning, I'm very excited.

I like Doves but I thought their most recent album was a bit weak compared to their other albums.
