yeah, i'll try to get that fixed as well as cutting some of the fabric from the sleeves and bottom.. the length for me is like wearing a really short dress.

Well, I can't really say much on this topic yet as I still haven't got my cd! :(  They mailed it nine days ago, and I guess Australia is a fair way away from the USA.  Loving the songs I've heard though - I especially love the pace of Ultima, it's actually not what I expected, but it think it really works in that song.  Go the new version of Night R - I think it's better than the old one that I heard.

It's really nice to have a great quality studio version of Sorry Bunch.  It's weird though, when the lyrics are different from the way I learned them and I keep singing it wrong. 

Boston is such an oddball on the CD, though.  It feels like a HUGE change of pace from the rest of the album, which I've been listening to on repeat.  I love it though.  It's so sharp.  I cried when I heard it once in Providence.  The song is so much about a lover not being there for her and they played it after Half-Jack with an amazing improv intro, where Brian had totally showed off how badass he is.  But when they played Boston, he pulled back; he wasn't showing off, but rather just playing the percussion for Amanda's song, for Amanda's moment.  And I thought "He's doing exactly what she needs him to be doing."  And it was such a beautifully loving and respectful relationship that she found in Brian, while she sang the pain of not having that.  It broke my heart in such significant ways.  It changed the way I behave in my own relationships.  Listening to it on the CD reminds me of that.

I totally agree, that was really lovely of you to say. *tear*

Ok, well I'm glad it's not just me (yes I did preorder from Newbury Comics).  I was thinking that it got nicked-off with by the posties or something, but that seems unlikely if there's a heap of other people who haven't got theirs either.  Good to know.

To be honest I got sick of waiting and went and listened to it anyway.  I love it!  I especially like this version of The Gardener, for some reason I found it really sad and I wasn't in the best mood when I listen to it and it almost made me cry.  It is nice to have a studio-recorded version of Pretty in Pink - I enjoyed it and I although i have heard it before (it was a bad quality recording) this one was much better.  At first listen I wasn't a huge fan of Dear Jenny, but I think it is one that I will like after a few more listens.
