I think it was Neil McCormick in his early review. I think he may have heard NLOTH 2 after Cedars. I'm glad it isn't on the regular album, COL should be the closer, it's perfect.

The most interesting bit is the amazing intro to Magnificent that they scrapped, with local percussionists I think. It's a bit trancey. And also some early lyrics to unknown caller...

Makes me a bit sad watching it TBH, I think the album was shaping up to be very different back then...
any chances to hear mp3 of this video?

Egh, so I wake up a few minutes ago and one of the first things I do is check the itunes store to see if they've listed the bonus tracks yet. Of course they haven't. They had better update it today.

I just noticed that. Someone screwed up and is not doing his/her job properly.

I expect to be downloading my preorder in about 15 hours, so I don't see how they have much choice but to update it today.

I know - this is bugging me. I'm thinking about cancelling my iTunes order because of this. If I don't hear anything by mid-day, I'm cancelling.

They aren't going to list it... until AFTER it goes on sale for real. It's supposed to be a surprise and make you HAVE TO buy it.

Why then is it available in other regions, but not in the US? They risk having a lot of pissed off customers if the extras are no good.

I wrote to iTunes this morning and got the following reply this afternoon. TAKE NOTE OF THE ITUNES FEEDBACK LINK. We should all write negative feedback and maybe they'll get the message.

This "Mirage" bit is, to quote, Bulldog from Frasier, total BS.

I want to get a tangible item, so I'm sticking with physical copy. I have serious doubts that they'd let a brand new song be an Itunes exclusive. It'd probably be either NLOTH2 or a remix. So I wouldn't get my hopes up.

You guys think it would be possible to tack on the extended Mag intro to the rest of the song? How sweet would that be?

Wouldn't it be great if it actually turned out to be Moon Mercy (S Edit?)

About 6 hours (or less) to go here.

I'm all ready for a big disappointment.

Seriously, though, I'm going to start checking on my preorder in about three hours, and then probably every 5 minutes until it starts downloading.

I think the bonus track will be No Line On The Horizon (2), and the iTunes exclusive track will be a live recording of Breathe.

I hope it's something really good. If not, I'll still have the album (the cd version doesn't come out until later on tomorrow, and I'll be busy all day so I wouldn't be able to buy it until later this week), but I'll still be pissed.

that cracked me up.

anyway, i would cancel my pre-order, given that i'm also ticked that they're not saying what the bonus tracks are, but i have a gift card so it's free for me anyway. so i might as well keep it

edit: i realized there's something else i can pre-order instead and use the gift card.
