I haven't enjoyed/loved an album this much since Funeral came out last year. Illinois is easily my favorite album of the year. I don't know if anyone can top it.

Man, this whole wait over the artwork thing really seems like it's going to help build up the hype around this album. The suspense is killing me, all the good reviews but nothing to stack it up to. I will be buying this whenever the crap it actually gets released.

Release WASN'T delayed...they are going to sell what they had printed, and are currently working on re-printing.

I got my copy today (I HATE buyong stuff at Borders, but my "city" is a little too small for good record stores, and I have yet to find a worthy independent).

John Wayne Gacy, Jr makes my spine tingle. it's chilling, haunting, and awe-inspiring. All this in a song about a serial killer.

Hmm, all the stores here seemed to not receive any. My local indedpendent store even told me the same "delay" story, and the guy working the counter was upset because he wanted it too. Seems to be all sorts of different stories around as to what's going on. In some places it was recalled, some stores probably just didnt do it or get the recall info. Who knows.

You can order it online from Parasole records. They still have 'Superman' copies.



I have listened to two-thirds of it.

Ah Zonemeister, you have helped me greatly. I thought to myself, "Hey, I didnt check Borders....actually, I NEVER check Borders!" So I figured I'd go over there because I wasnt doing much of anything else. What do you know, 2 copies of the album sitting right there, Superman and all!

Needless to say, I now own a copy.

Don't you think that this idea of composing an album for every state is kind of crazy? I mean, aside from the sheer length of time it would take to complete this task, how would he get to know each state well enough to capture it's essence in an album?

This is going straight to the top of my lengthy 'to buy' list.

Beautiful, beautiful stuff. HMV will be getting a visit from me before the end of the month.

Yes...but do you really think there is an appetite (or the ability to write/create) an album for each state? Illinoise has 22 songs. I cannot imagine even trying with that with every state.

Unless Idaho is nothing more than an four song EP.

And Delaware is a B-side to the single from Maryland.
