No, the UK official release date is today - albums always launch on a Monday here. Or at least they're supposed to, 'cos my local store hasn't got their allocation yet either
"Probably Wednesday" say they. Colour me unimpressed.

Kool, I have yet to actually, "listen" to the vinyl. I've only been listening to my vinyl rip, which was the first needle drop of my copy.

I don't have mine yet either (live in the Netherlands), but I've seen it in the stores already since last week.

I guess mine was somewhat delayed, because I got an email from Matador saying they had made a mistake in calculating shipping costs and needed to charge 7$ extra. Then I got another email saying they weren't going to charge that 7$ after all and then another one stating that it had shipped.

here is the email i got

Dear Customer,
If you've already gotten your Sonic Youth "The Eternal" LP, hope you're enjoying it and please disregard this email.

If you have yet to get your lp, our deep apologies. We hope to send the rest of the orders on Friday but our plant shorted us, so we couldn't. We hoped to send them today but as it turns out they're not even getting here until tomorrow morning, obviously the street date. We're really disappointed about this as we're sure you are. Hopefully to make up for some of the wait, here is a digital version of the album a little bit early. Hope you enjoy it. We'll be sending your lps out tomorrow as soon as they come in.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Take care,
Matador Records

and haven't gotten it yet

FUCK!!!! I might have just gotten gyped out of the poster/live extras because of my goddamn record store. I can't pick up the stuff until next Wednesday and they said they'd *try* to hold it for me but it's a lot of inventory so I'll just have to see what happens.

What's up with the hissing on the eternal? It's not super irritating or anything, but you can really notice it in the quiet parts (the beginning of What We Know, for example). Surely the hissing is easy to remove on protools but perhaps they like it?

The hissing of summer lawns? I could drink a case of ya.
