I'm still waiting and will be for some time. The Official Leonard Cohen US store shipped my CD bundle last night. It will be delivered by DPD - estimated delivery 8-22 days. And that's not including the inevitable delay at UK Customs.

Amazing service for the $22.97 they charged me for shipping. Not.

I was a little skeptical about how this would end up, building the arrangements after the fact around the vocals Leonard had left. But this album has some superb, moving moments. And some very interesting and creative production choices by Adam. (For example, loving the sound of the guitars and handclaps on The Night of Santiago). Many thanks to all who put this together.

"The Hills"... Is he actually singing "and this is the hook" instead of "and this is the book"? - This is hilarious!

Heard the album on Spotify just now for the first time. Beautiful as one could expect, will be on repeat a.lot !

I noticed a very nice "extra" on spotify, when playing the album. Took a few screenshots of it.

I held it together until about half through It’s Torn but now I’m a blubbering mess. Stunning album.

Don't shoot the messenger;-). I know it's a typo error and a stupid one but it doesn't make the storylines with each song any less interesting!
