How clueless and uninformed (read the press release maybe?) can two journalists be?!?!?!

Not the same as the vinyl days but still a joy there. The art work on the last two albums was phenomenal so I'm hoping this one is up there.
Describes me as well Dadascot!

So is the artwork in the CD any good ? Booklet , photos , lyrics ?

If not I'll just buy it off itunes

There is a booklet with a lengthy intro by Bernie taupin but no photos, obviously the full list of musicians and writers, fine but not brilliant.

There's one more illustration in the booklet, plus the intro by Taupin is the same as what's on the official website.

The Japanese version has the same thing, with a separate plain booklet which has full lyrics of all the songs, with translations and an original intro written in Japanese.

Do you already have the Japanese cd? If so how's "I'm a boy "?

unbelievable ! didn't even listen till the end.
but, nothing new : this weekend i found an old mag on my attic with a review of WTMNM : now that was a good album compared to his two previous ones, namely "Elected" and "Billion Dollar Babies.. "..
sigh...

[quote="mestreech"] how's "I'm a boy "?[/quote]
i enjoy it, but not a standout highlight for me. Really, it's a rather straight cover, along the lines of 'My Generation'.
I'm not sure if it was listed as such, but it appears within the album itself, right after Cold Turkey.

That's an astonishing level of idiocy, I was wondering whether it was a spoof. As if the Hollywood Vampires nonsense wasn't bad enough, the things said about the Travelling Wilburys compounded their clear lack of basic musical knowledge. Even the guy that corrected them mispronounced Jeff Lynne's surname.

Wow. The ignorance is astounding. They clearly are all-around musical idiots, not just about this album.

I'm pretty sure that Paul said Willie Nelson as being part of The Wilburys before they stumbled onto Roy Orbison & steamrolled through he's the one that died. ::((:

Egads - I was losing brain cells as I was listening. Nothing wrong with having different tastes - everything wrong with offering up judgement on things you have no knowledge of - sounds like corporate radio is as stupid and maybe even a bit worse in New Zealand as it is in NA

What makes it worse is that surely neither of these bozos BOUGHT a copy, and therefore, being a radio station, likely got a promo copy. Presumably these promo copies had covers, and or press release sheets, and even looking at those was too much work for them before doing the news item.

Did anyone notice that Bob Ezrin (or a person pretending to be Bob) responded to the show?

Then they'd have been able to tell listeners how Alice used to drink with two corpses at the Vampires Club. After that Joe Walsh and Aerosmith seems pretty believable!

I should have been more clear: Scroll down the page to see Comments. "Bob Ezrin" taught me a new word: I had to look up "bloviating" and my goal is to use it in conversation sometime soon!
