TBF I'm within cycling distance of Wales itself and I still don't have the CD, although that's more cos I've been too lazy to go to the record shop. ;)

That's a bit comforting... ;)

The ending for this song
Well I haven't really thought of one
There's nothing I could ever say
That could really take the pain away

is a fair description of the sheer length of time it's taking to move towards any chance of some actual accountability being taken, of some arrests, of some justice and conclusions. Feels like they'll drag out the inquiry until anyone who could possibly face charges is dead or too ill to face a trial .... how does all this help the families....but anyway, more random thoughts

Are you guys and girls talking about SYMM? I always thought how stylish these lyrics are from an artistic point of view. They're also quite intriguing as well making the whole thing interesting and the listener to research about the topic.

ugh, you're serious? that's a fucking joke, I've paid as much as for the postage as for the cds. I could order it via ebay and be happy to have a copy but no, I care about Nicky caring about UK Charts. Fucking hell.

Oddly, the back of my 2cd says it's from Sony Music Entertainment Poland. I don't get it, what's happened, have the albums been pressed in Poland and all shipped along to a British warehouse? I know you're not in Poland now but it's still silly.

I know Mar!! I paid like 120 PLN for vinyls and cd AND 100 PLN more for postage. That makes me feel stupid and robbed. If the shipping were fast and let's say by Wednesday, I would be pleased. But 4 days after the premiere? And I got an email that they sent it 12th September (Thursday).

Actually, Rich, I am in Poland. Does it say so? Fasctinating. You have a signed version? Or which one?

Yes, I got the email too the same day as you. And still waiting. I pre ordered the signed deluxe, otherwise it would have been better just to wait and buy it on any shop...

here's a funny story. I've preordered signed JFPL. Before it came, I went shopping and when I noticed 1cd JFPL I couldn't resist and grabbed a copy. Of course signed JFPL came one day later.

I'd do that too again, but now I'm stuck in my tiny hometown where are NO music shops. Anyway, it's almost 1pm and there's no been any postman. And tomorrow's weekend. UGH :/

We will have to wait until Monday Claudia. My RTF-dramageddon thoughts will be with you.

I'm really sorry for you two! :( Also, I didn't know that there is no mail delivery on Saturday in Poland and Spain, In GB and Germany Sunday is the only mail-free day. I got the same email as you two (dispatched on 12th) and mine must have arrived on Saturday. Not that that helps you!

mar 20-09-2013 17:33

Well, we have mail some Saturdays but it's not usual, maybe only "special deliveries".

B, hope you enjoy your package tomorrow. It's worth waiting. It always is.

As on Monday I'm going to Poznań, where I study, I'll try to get regular cd, like in JFPL case. Desperate actions in desperate times.

And then you have one copy for general use with a nice little CD booklet and you can keep the book one for show! It makes perfect sense if you look at it! ;)
