    What more needs to be said buy it great album more commercial than some of XTCs possibly a good starting point for those who don't know the band, though I am looking forward to some of the older albums.
    How enlightened some bands are lately.
    Cheers Fletch

    Burning shed have just tweeted that they are shipping to the rest of the world today. I'm assuming that they will ship to UK a little later so that we all get our discs on the 4th.

    That's awesome news. It is strange, however that Amazon.ca just sent me this update, saying the estimate they will be delivered in late December.

    Hello from Amazon.ca.

    We now have delivery date(s) for the order you placed on September 26, 2013. We've listed the item(s) listed below with the expected delivery date(s):

    Yes "Close to the Edge"
    Estimated arrival date: December 20, 2013 - December 30, 2013
    Xtc "Nonsuch (CD + Blu-Ray)"
    Estimated arrival date: December 20, 2013 - December 30, 2013
    I really hope they are wrong! I should've just ordered from Burning Shed, but I had some Amazon gift certificates to use up.

    Amazon U. Shipped my copy today.

    Off topic, it seems amazon is shipping in seperate portions more often than in the past, even when I select the order to be delivered in one go. I get some stuff earlier now, but in the past Amazon combined seperate items from differemt orders in one package, but that is not the case anymore it seems. Anyone else experiencing this?
