I've only listened to Storm The Sorrow and to me it seems a bit dull, incomplete. Loved the album cover right from the start though.

I think that's the worst song on the album, personally. tongue

I really can't wait to hear it! I have been trying to stay away from leaks, because I really want to enjoy the album in its fullest for the first time when it comes out here in the US. Unfortunately, I ordered from Nuclear Blast and I'm not sure if I'll get it the day it comes out. Sad

I'm starting to get really annoyed with pre-orders too! What's the point if you don't get it on the day of release? Epica's not supposed to be out until Monday but HMV are selling it already - if I hadn't pre-ordered from Amazon I could've just got it Sad argh.

I've never done a pre-order before but this time I pre-ordered from Nuclear Blast too because I wanted to have the mailorder edition Rolling Eyes The album was released on Friday in Austria and I didn't get my copy. Really Angry What annoys me most is the fact that some people who ordered from Nuclear Blast already got their CD on Friday.

It seems the CD is a misprint though. They used the instrumental version of Serenade of Self-Destruction instead of the actual song with vocals Rolling Eyes

It's a big mess up on their NB's part.
I listened to the album, and to be honest Simone's vocals have improved so much but to me the album as a whole seems lacking in something and incomplete. The songs don't seem to flow like all the previous albums.

I'm getting my copy on Tuesday! I can't wait to listen to it! I generally don't like ordering things online, so I'm going on a 40 minute long bus adventure instead. Razz

Yay my Mailorder Edition arrived to today and now I'm finally listening to the new songs. Super happy After the first listen I like Requiem For The Indifferent, Internal Warfare and Monopoly On Truth a lot. Also the bonus track Nostalgia is really nice. But it's probably too early to choose a favorite, I need to give it a few more spins.

And I need to listen to the right version of Serenade Of Self-Distruction since I only have the instrumental version. Sad

Haha, I just got home actually. Very Happy

I'm listening to Requiem for the Indifferent right now, and I'm really enjoying it. It always takes me a few listens to get a proper feel for an album.

It seems careless on NB's part for overlooking the missing vocals on Serenade of Self-Distruction. I have the proper version of the song, so I guess it was just in Europe? Neutral

My digibook just arrived, it's so beautiful!



^ I think the missing vocals were only on the box set edition, but I'll have to check if they're on mine or not.

Edit: Oh dear! It seems it is missing on the digibook as well. Mine has no Simone/Mark vocals, only choirs and spoken bits! Fail!

The cover of the Digibook is indeed beautiful, they did a really great job on that I love you

The missing vocals are not just on the Mailorder Edition, they are also on the some Digibooks, don't know about the Jewel Case Version. But it seems to depend on the country you live in, since the US version seems to have the right track with vocals.

I know the iTunes version has the vocals, at least it does here in the US. I ordered from Nuclear Blast, but haven't got that copy yet. Impatiently, I went ahead with the iTunes version, because it wasn't so much money. You might want to try downloading that. The song should be available for individual download.

I got a free Amazon song download for buying the CD so might try that if Nuclear Blast don't send a free one out!

It's a shame... I mean, I pretty much never like an album on the first listen, and the song that jumped out at me as being awesome happens to be the one with no vocals!

Yeah iTunes has the song with vocals but I'll be waiting a few more days for a reaction of NB before I'm going to buy it. iTunes even has Twin Flames as a bonus track so I was going to buy it but it says I can only download the song when I'm buying the whole album! What kind of sense does that make??? Rolling Eyes

Aha! I emailed NB and they have linked me to this page with an apology and free download of Serenade of Self Destruction:

Actually, my track is the instrumental version too, so I guess it's all the CDs. I don't know how I could have possibly missed that on my first listen, but I was really tired yesterday. Maybe I dreamt it. >.<

At least NB did something about it. The part about it being a collector's item made me laugh.
