I'm still waiting for my Amazon delivery. :(

I can't check High Street shops, I'm afraid, because Oldham, where I work, has NO shops that sell CDs! (Sign of the times?)

From people I know in Europe who pre-ordered the CD from amazon.co.uk & play.com, the receipt date has been as follows:

UK & Switzerland: Tuesday 20th Sep
Germany: Wednesday 21st Sep
Netherlands: Thursday 22nd Sep

Furthermore, physical release dates confirmed so far outside the UK are:

Austria & Germany: 30th September
France: 26th October
Australia & Japan will get their own releases (Japan with bonus CD), release dates to be confirmed.

It was on my door mat when I got home! Just listening to In Yer Face now.

Bonus CD for the Far East? Do we know what's on it?

808 State will return!

It has a lot to do with licensing, Ideas are changing all the time. As soon as it's been confirmed, you'll read it here.

I love Mark & Steve C's reviews, maybe they could be put on amazon.co.uk? The first review there is awful, by a certain J. Harrison from Dorset, he seems to make slagging off albums his hobby?

Yeah I read his review, although he did give the 90 album 5 stars, I think he likes the old school 808 rather than the upgrade for the masses.

Blueprint is in the Trafford Centre HMV store for £9.95, along with a couple of the deluxe albums, which I might have to rebuy cos mine are now scratched and skip.

play.com have matched amazon.co.uk with the price of 5.69. Crazy that the physical CD is cheaper than the digial download (6.99) eh?!
