I pre-ordered it through CD Japan, and the few songs and clips I've heard sound great. I desperately want this album, but it hasn't arrived yet. It came out the 13th, and I chose air mail, so it should be soon. I heard CDJapan shipped the overseas albums early so they'd arrive closer to release date, so I'm expecting it any day now.
I still maintain that 13 kai wa gekkou... was one of the best albums ever. It's really hard to pick favorites.. especially since Tenshi no Revolver and Memento Mori had some really great tracks. But seriously? These guys have been consistantly putting out amazing material. I wish I'd gotten into them sooner, instead of waiting until I was like 7 yrs into Japanese music to decide to go back and look at them more closely.
I was out most of the day today.. I should really check the mailbox and see if there was a delivery note in there. I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to sign for it. Maybe it's waiting for me at the post office! It would be nice to be able to pick it up and put it on an MP3 player before I leave town.
And damn.. Memento mori was a really great album. I think I'd still have to say that 13 kai has been the most amazing due to the story it tells. The continuity between songs makes it one large, amazing listening experience.
But Coyote.. goddamn... It's seriously amazing. I could listen to this on repeat forever.
