Has anyone in the U.S. found E.Storm single today yet?

The release date is October 21 right? I've checked a couple of record stores and Best Buy today and I did not find it. Is it going to be released in the U.S.?

Even tho the release date is today, Tuesday is new music release day so I doubt you can find it before tomorrow.

but you never know!

You can pre order The Best of on Bestbuy.com tho, for 19.99 with free shipping right now!!

I've been told the the release date in the US is always on a Tuesday, whereas in the rest of the world it is on Monday. So, I would go look for it tomorrow.

Grrrr

I preordered it from CDNOW and they say it is on backorder! I have no idea when I'll get it. What is the point of a preorder if it will be late? Netx time I'll just go to Best Buy or something.

You're going to be buying the import, right? Because it's not going to be released domestically. Right?

The guy at my music store said that because it is an import, they will not recieve it until the end of the week. I was disapointed.

I called the Virgin Megastore in Costa Mesa today and was told that none of their stores had it in yet and it wouldn't be in until probably next week. Bummer! And I am on back order from CD Now, have no idea what is up with that since I placed my order like two months ago.
And the Tower in Brea said it will be in next week as well.
As God is my witness, though, I will have that limited edition single!!!!

Stupid question:
I'm sort of confused. What is the DVD single at BestBuy for $19.99?
I assumed they were talking about Best Of but they advertise it as just Electrical Storm.

What is the deal with that?

There is a DVD single for Electrical Storm. That's probably what they're talking about.

Big Grin yippee

I just got my Electrical Storm Pt. 1 (Limited edition) from CD Now
Haven't even played it yet.

It looks like a Canadian release
Track 1- Electrical Storm (William Orbit Mix)
Track 2 - New York (Nice Mix)
Track 3 - New York (Nasty Mix)

The cover is silver and black with all the guys on the front. Looks like they are in a train car or something. Everyone is looking at the camera except Bono. He's lloing out the window.

I'm so excited!

ES CD Single and why I am so ticked at Interscope

I really don't understand record companies. I mean they always complain about file sharing and then they constantly drop the ball whe it comes to giving the fans what they want. The ES single should have been out a month ago. Instead they decide to put it out 2 weeks before the release of the Best of. This makes no sense. There is no new material on the CD singles except for the remixes (of which only the Nice Mix IMO is worth geting). I already have the DVD audio ripped in high quality from the DVD that I already own. So why not wait two weeks to get the best of and get both versions of ES and avoid spending $20 for the singles (the two singles together cost more than the Deluxe 3 disc set of the Best of). On top of that, I am such a die hard that I still went to Tower and Virgin yesterday (I live in Los Angeles) to find the CD Single, and neither store had a copy and said they would get it next week. So now it is a question of spending $20 on two singles that have the same material that I can get 6 days later. And as for the Nice Mix--I like it but I'd rather not spend $10 for one song. In addition, this whole "import" racket where they charge $10 for a disc that has an Import sticker on it. Mind you this has nothing to do with U2 but it bothers me even more when this nonsense crosses over into a band who's music I love. Please don't get mad at me, but I am thinking of not buying the CD single after this. I own every official release of U2 material, so this would be a first, but I am really upset about this. And don't even get me started on the fact that they still haven't releaesed the older video catalogue on DVD...

If you can hold out, I say go for it. Don't buy it. Money talks, and record companies only care about money. If enough people talk with their wallets, sooner or later the record companies will have to listen.

Me, I'm not so strong. I've ordered the the one ES single I want from Soundworld in Oz. It should arrive any day now.
