Yeah, me too. Haven't gotten an email to download the album... super lame.

(First time poster. I'm in the US though, not sure if this forum is just for the UK.)

We haven't received ours, either.

Also - this board is for everee-bodee! YAY inclusion!

On a related note, I went to Best Buy last night and while they had one Super Deluxe on the shelf, there were no regular copies of Way to Normal to be found. I asked a guy working if they had any, and he told me he didn't know and sort of stared off into space, at which point I had to walk away for fear that I would smash his face in out of rage and disgust.
The same thing happened to me at Best Buy-- The Ben Folds section was on one side and the BFF was on another...WTF?
   I never got my preorder copy as promised, I'm too tired to fight with Ticketmaster.  I also wondered if the preorder copy was a "fake".

Hiroshima is great--my kids sing it all the time.  Kylie doesn't do it for me, Cologne does.  Brainwascht is BRILLIANT in every way as is Frown song.  I skip Dr Yang and Free Coffee alot

Effington is the "flip side" of "Adelaide" emotionally I think......

what do you mean exactly?

The way I look at "Adelaide" is that Ben can't WAIT to get home to Adelaide, whereas he can't WAIT to get AWAY from Effington (a distirtion of Adelaide?)
   Believe me, I am by no means a philosophy/english major-- rather, I am science based.   :-\

your japanese edition will have the lyrics in both english and japanese.
Could I just get the Japanese version? ;) ;D   I found it a bit suckish to have no lyrics.  The first thing I love to do with a new cd is read the album credits and lyrics.  *sigh*

I too found the .org a "rough neighborhood".  I used to post on the "official site", but that became a ghost town.  This seems just right for now.

Where do you begin writing about a record you've been waiting anxiously for ... for what is essentially three long years?  SFS was already out when I discovered Mr. Folds, so for me, this is the first new release.  All the BF5 stuff was like a 'Wow!  Extra Bonus!' hahaha.

So say whatever you want.  I know this record is gonna be allllll over the board with opinions from fans of all the, hmm...Ben generations?  Can I call it that?  I'm just a baby fan compared to so many of you out there!
I agree with you, Ben has always connected with me becuase of being the "same generation" (I am 40)...especially now, as I watch many a marriage implode/explode/disintergrate around me.  Ben always puts my thoughts into words when it comes to sarcasm and wry observations.

Alice Childress "Thank God its you, you know your timing is impeccable...."
Judy  "Its way too hard being loved by default"
The entire "Selfless,Cold and Composed"
and of course  "You might reflect on your own arrangement, 94 getting blown on your basement (while your wife slept)"

We'd all secretly f*ck Ben. Deal with it.
.....including this 40 year-old momoffour.  But then I'd have to hurry home to do homework, laundry and go to work...Btw, any idea how old Fleur is?  (Sorry, I love gossip)

These songs fill me with longing and angst--especially the first two (maybe it stems from being married for quite sometime)  Anyone else?  Please, no abuse, I can get that at home......
