    Preorder is live :D I just put mine in.

    So far, it just put one penny down as a placeholder. I am assuming they won't fully charge us until a couple days before the release date. That's what happened when I tried to preorder Bullet For My Valentine's CD

    After a few hours they still haven't fully charged my card, except for the penny placeholder, so I think it is really safe to say they won't charge me until they send out the copies of the CD.

    Yeah I don't get it, but I'm not in that mosaic. Whatever...

    Anyways my thoughts on the preorder:

    T-Shirt: Kinda weird looking, not as good as Innocence & Instinct shirt.
    Hoodie: Kinda plain but I like it.
    Guitar: Absolutely amazing. I wish I was rich so I could have that bad boy.
    Poster: Well if the squares are the mosaic I'd be pissed because my pic wasn't in lol. Cool poster though.

    What I don't get though is how to me this release seems so generic for RED. Innocence & Instinct has the 12 month long ARG with so many prizes for RED's fans. This time they are just giving away their prizes without having to work for it. To this day, Innocence & Instinct is my favorite all-time album of any artist, and I feel I must be too critical expecting any other album to hold up to it.

    I may preorder just the CD because there is no deluxe like with I&I with extra tracks, the final clue, or any other bonuses. RED met more success over the last two years than they have before and I hope they don't take this success and forget about us old fans. We lost the street team already and I don't want RED to turn into a generic rock band.

    Yeah, I wasn't really digging the shirt, and I can't afford the hoodie, so I just ordered the CD. I do like that the CD booklet is signed though.

    Those YouTube "rips" sound like crap compared to the actual CD.

    ^that would be awesome (in a selfish way) if the cd quality leaks very soon. I am still going to purchase the album, it's just too good not to own.

    RED says that iTunes pre-orders get a bonus track "Until We Have Faces".

    I think I've selected which copy I will be buying. I hope it's a really soft version of Faceless or something really uptempo. I know opposites but yeah lol.

    From what I heard, the song "Until We Have Faces" is the song that is/was played during the revealing of the album title (burning parchment paper video).

    Today was my first time listening to anything from this album and I really enjoyed listening to it. My favourites are probably Buried Beneath, Not Alone, Let It Burn... but I like the whole album overall really. I think I like this more than I&I on my first listens of it.
