I think Leonard, may have a soft spot for you Irish, even though you're rather strange

New albums always come out over here the Friday before the official release date. A fact I should have remembered before preordering online!

New albums in Europe are always released on Fridays, and in US on Tuesdays - hence the release dates for Europe are January 27, or February 3. There was a thread about this already, re: German date also being January 27th.

I missed that thread. Apologies for the double thread so. The poor souls in the UK have to wait until the 30th ;-)

Here in the US I can get my copy on the 27th. There's a record store not far from me that puts all of it's new releases out on Fridays 5 days before the actual release date.

Nice one!! That was my reasoning behind not pre-ordering as the same happens here in Ireland as I have often got albums due for release on the Monday the previous Friday.

Sony Music Poland wrote it's 17 days to Polish release, so that's January 27 as well for Poland.

Local Sony company released Darkness today for radio and confirmed Jan 31 as official date everywhere. But will the CDs itself be shipped to Croatia from Sony factory in Austria or wherever on Friday before or on the next Friday, they don't know and nobody does.

Sometimes it takes two weeks for new releases to come here. This is very small market and we're happy that Leonard is here very salable artist so his CDs, as Waits' and Cave's and Dylan's, are released at all, and much heard on radio and advertised. Rest is only stupid new music so we have to use Amazon to get any real music. And even their CDs are here around 20 Euros, so it's almost double cheaper to buy them from Amazon. I didn't buy record in shop here for years - only from Amazon I'm afraid, and now even eBay. I bought London CD/DVD and Songs from the Road from Amazon, for half the Croatian shop price.

Well if our record stores charged those prices I'd only buy online too! Most of my cds are purchased from Amazon though as they are cheaper than our record stores too! I normally pre-order from them but as I want this the day of release I'll be buying in HMV Friday 27th ;-) Love your comment "Rest is only stupid new music so we have to use Amazon to get any real music" :lol:

I think it is enough if I say that Glitterhouse or Domino Records aren't distributed in Croatia for few years now... That means that e.g. I have to buy Bonnie Prince Billy and many many other artists like Wovenhand or Bill Callahan on Amazon... Not to say that CD's are usualy 7.99 British pounds o 8.99 US dollars, plus 2-3 for postage, and here it's 139 or 140 kunas, what equals 20 Euros. And we are so small market there is NO iTunes so everybody are using Pirate Bay. E.g. yesterday I downloaded complete James Blake, and some other new artists praised by Pitchfork.

The music industry is falling apart I'd say. I never saw the days of LP shops, but I really need a big store when I can go in, held CD in my hand, and pay for it as on Amazon.

Thank G-d for the wonders of technology and Amazon. If we place orders over €25 we get free shipping with Amazon so I generally make sure my orders are over that. No itunes?? Surprised at Apple as there must be a market there. However I seldom use itunes myself and think I have bought maybe 3 songs from them. I prefer to have the actual CD's in my hand and not a fan of downloads! While Amazon is great I have to say I love going into HMV and spending time just looking at all the CD's and always everytime I go I do a check for what LC records they have ;-)

Speaking about Fridays, local Sony distributor in Croatia just confirmed that CDs will be sent from manufactures only on Monday, so next Friday, February 3, 2012, is the street release date. They hope - if nothing happens in transport and customs - to hit shops on Thursday as album is eagerly awaited and much promoted worldwide so it's a big hype everywhere.

This probably could happen in smaller market, outside markets like Poland, France, Germany, UK...

So there goes my idea about going to a local store... Maybe if somebody confirms that Amazon UK sends CDs earlier I can go and get it online... and hope the delivery will take less than 7 days.
