The whole thing seems a bit...crooked. I'm going upstairs to cancel my iTunes pre-order and leave a nice "customer review" on the "Deluxe" edition home page.

Oh wow. I just found the Crookers (crooked) Remix on the Fader website and had to shut it down after 8 seconds; my toddler is asleep on the sofa and I didn't want to cause nightmares. Maybe one of the worst molestations of a U2 track ever.

Pre-order canceled. I also left some unhappy feedback on the iTunes Feedback page.

So, how do you cancel the preorder if there's no option to manage preorders on the account page?

It was on my account page. It was listed as a preorder. I pressed cancel. They actually prompted me to download the album as I was signing-in to my account, but I clicked "not now" and proceeded to my account page, where I canceled the order.

Yes, it started downloading mine when I went to my account page as well, but I hit stop and exited out, then went back in and started deleting the tracks in the D/L queue. The only one I didn't get to in time was that crooked remix of GOYB, which I have since deleted from my iTunes library after replying to Nicole's earlier e-mail to me (posted in this thread) demanding they refund my partial gift card and cc purchase and delete the transaction. I told them about the problems with their misrepresentation, and also hit a "Report A Problem" button somewhere and left some feedback on the "Leave A Customer Review" page. Hell, they'll probably delete me.

Idiotic, completely idiotic on Itunes part. I downloaded the preorder, because I wanted the album and thought 'what the hell,' but still, that is incredibly deceptive.

Well it's too late for me now, I've downloaded almost everything, since my credit had already taken a hit I though I was screwed, didn't think I could stop it. What a deceptive way to get hard core fans to preorder the album through iTunes, by announcing "iTunes exclusive tracks" and then having those track being utter shit!!!! I am surely leaving negative feedback too.

Well, I wrote to iTunes asking them to cancel the purchase since I have not downloaded yet. We'll see what they come back with.

Also after seeing the digital version of the book, I've decided to not get the box version. Actually I think I might not get any physical version. After paying for the getmusic leak and now for this, I feel really ripped off (I know, no one forced me to buy the getmusic mp3s but was so excited). I just feel that it would be a total waste to pay 70 USD to get what I already have, Linear is so boring and the book is nothing to write home about.

Wait, so some are getting a Boots Rmx and others are just getting NLOTH(2)???

That means I'm just getting one bonus track.... NLOTH(2).... where is the other one?? Linear would not be considered a bonus.... its the frickin' movie!!!

I added Winter to my version of No Line On The Horizon as a bonus track. At least that's something extra.

I don't really care about the physical version. In fact, I think I prefer having the digital book and the video nicely stored in iTunes.

Yeah I am really surprised almost every iTunes 'deluxe' release just now has at least 2, 3 actual audio tracks [acoustic, original, UK bside] as well as the CD tracklisting, usually it's a proverbial "carrot dangling" for the hardcore fans to go pre-order. R.E.M did it with Accelerate, the album, 3 Live tracks, 2 UK bsides for every user and 1 pre-order only live number... I also don't recall them doing this "wait til the last minute reveal" thing.. this erm.. wow just kinda surprised, especially the first album in 4 years...

AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!

I originally pre-ordered it. When I learned that it was available to download... I couldn't find how to re-trieve it. I then proceeded to just download it not realizing that I was missing on the remix, hence the bonus track. This blows.... anybody want to share the bonus "boots" track??? please....
