    The big gap in release dates would suggest ordering from the USA would still be quickest even in the UK.

    I'm looking forward to coming to this one 'cold' as it were.

    I'm also hoping the 90125 comparisons are way off stylistically. 1980 is surely a world away from 1983.....

    I'm sure it was a dream come true to be there but those clips just reveal all those horrible 80s synth tones which make it pretty much unlistenable for me.
