I bought the ITunes version to get the bonus tracks and the 25 minute long explanation of each song. I think it was worth it. We only get an Alice album every 3 years + I can merge the bonus tracks into the album and same goes for Under the Bed so it will be an hour long. :rock:

Well, seeing as it said up to 5 business days to receive it, and the UK just started getting it 6 business days ago...I'd give them minimum 'til middle of this coming week.

I think we're underestimating the amount of time it'll take to arrive. I figured 2 weeks after release. Beyond that, we can probably start worrying.

Yeah. When they said 3-5 work days to arrive, I rather assumed that would be for the UK, and we'd have to allow more time elsewhere. Usually when I mail things across an ocean, it takes about a week. So, I'm not even worrying about it in the slightest before next Friday (which would be 10 business days...giving them their 5 and another week for travel time).

And if you go by "release date," then we add another 3 days, since the UKers started getting it on Friday, but it wasn't officially released 'til Tuesday.

Just saw on the other thread that JuanCoop just got his (in Brazil) and saw on FB that someone in Florida got just got theirs. So, they appear to be starting to trickle in to North and South America.

I feel for you lot, they are everywhere here! They even had 4 or 5 copies at the WH Smith kiosks in Cannon St and Paddington stations when I was in London yesterday. This is really wierd to see, I buckled and brought a 2nd copy!

That's assuming it doesn't get hung up in Customs like the box sets did.... These days, there's no way to predict shipping times from the UK/Europe to the U.S. unless it's expressly overnighted (and even that's no guarantee).

some just have to simmer down. I order stuff from the UK and such about once a month. Can take anywhere from 6 days to a month. depending on customs and shipping methods used. weather it be via airmail or by boat. It happens. Awaiting both the fan pack and 7" vinyl. once I get those I may order the EU Vinyl as well now. Being the US version was a little lacking and just for collection sake.

I do wonder If the those getting it now are all Amazon orders vs from the magazine direct. Amazon's always been quick theres been times before prime that I made a Amazon US order and a Amazon.co.uk order and got the co.uk items quicker.

Im from Argentina, I live in the second city of the country called Cordoba.
I chose the middle-speed shipment method. My copies arrived onfriday (yesterday), I was surprised bu its speed since on thursday at 10pm the box was in Sao Paulo, Brazil... in about 20 hours it made all the way!
It came through UPS.

Surprised as well, first cause I live in São Paulo and didn't receive it yet, second cause Brazilian Mail is not working, they stopped for workers causes. Anyway, glad you got it yet, It must be one of Alice's best, looking forward to get my soon!!

When you say "a little lacking", do you mean more than the color of the vinyl?
I've ordered from the US, but prefer black anyway. But if there are more differences I'll have to order from UK as well.

Just the Color and it being 135G Vinyl. The UK version is 180G on Red Vinyl. Transfer and pressing wise they should be the same. So I'm still debating on it.

I'm starting to get pissy with this fan pack. Waiting for it to come as a pre-order from Canada for 2 months is hard enough. But recieving it later than the release date is driving me insane. I'm glad to hear that the fan pack is awesome but I've waited long enough and I want it now! It's been a week. I want to start rearranging all the bonus tracks including Under The Bed. If I don't get it by early next week at the latest all hell might break loose :angry: :alice: :devil:
(Same goes for the vinyl, but at least I know that it's been shipped unlike the fan pack) :nono:

Same here! I got the 7" vinyl from universal. I'm hoping by the Monday or Tuesday of next week it will come since it will be more than 10 days since it came out
