    Nah I mean it's leaked. I've ordered it from Universal (and POSSIBLY Play) so I expect to receive it sometime before the Girls Aloud reunion.

    A full rate to follow but this is 11/10 at the minimum.

    My little SCOUSE WONDER, you've done me proud :disco:

    When is it actually out? Google says Monday but I was thinking of having a little sniff about in case any shops have put it out early. Is Nicola big enough to have breaking-the-street-date HYSTERIA surrounding her? :shy:

    Monday.

    You might see a few (thousand) copies strewn around That's Entertainment. Have you seen that place COB? It looks like an actual treasure trove of shit CDs you never knew you needed.

    Too early for a RATE? I don't think so:

    10 Beat Of My Drum
    10 Lucky Day
    08 Yo-Yo
    09 Cinderella's Eyes
    11 Porcelain Heart
    09 i
    08 Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime
    08 Say It Out Loud
    10 Gladiator (:disco:)
    08 Fish Out Of Water
    09 Take A Bite
    10 sticks + stones (:()

    I'm aware that's a BIT loontastic and the scores will probably settle down after a few weeks, but for now it's exactly what I want from a pop album (and far more consistent than I was expecting).

    monsta - that shop is both amazing and horrifying. Very WELL STOCKED with 99p Sugababes albums, just like all shops of its ilk :shy:

    I'm not finding it screechy at all - there's a bit in the title track where she goes a bit high (computer-assisted) that some people might find annoying, but I love it :disco:

    To me she released the worst 2 tracks as singles.

    I'm loving Yo-Yo, I, take a bite and the cover :disco: its all very good overall

    I've given a couple of tracks a spin and I like what I hear so far. Time to give it a full spin tomorrow.

    It sounds MAGNIFICENT

    The title track is amazing.

    If this fails to even outsell Nadine's half-arsed "opus" I'm going to be seriously devastated. :(

    I just love that it's got her personality stamped all across it.

    4 Stars in the Evening Standard I noticed. Plus they called her GA's best singer.

    Nadine banging The Workers heads together as we speak.

    Q gave it three stars, which for a pop album by a female singer is about as good as it gets (apart from Cherly's four stars of course), picking out BOMD, Yo-Yo and I.

    I'm hoping my copy might appear tomorrow.

    Can't wait to hear this, I hope someone posts the original iTunes download somewhere soon :) I haven't been able to find an Irish iTunes gift card online yet, otherwise I would have bought it myself (I'm not in Ireland though).

    Taking everything into account it shouldn't take her more than a day or two to do that :basil: :(

    What is a casual NR fan's opinion though? Is it worth the download?

    If it's full of Lucky Days then I'm on board, if it's full of Beat of My Drums then I don't know if I can be bothered

    I think it's really rather good. I certainly wasn't expecting it to be this good, there isn't really a bad track on it. Beat Of My Drum sticks out a bit, but it's still my highlight of the album.

    The more subtle stuff really is brilliant.

    Fish Out Of Water, I and Say it Out Loud in particular.

    Is this a leak or have people started receiving the CD?

    Arrived yesterday and I'm ABSOLUTELY FUCKING LIVING FOR THIS SHIT

    "Lucky Day" sounds SOOO much better in the context of the album (and I already loved it) and the whole thing is SO SO SOLID from start to finish. I'm SO excited about it all. Just a shame it's going to BOMB...

    I'm not sure if this is just a Premium bonus as I've only been able to check my own account but there's Track by Track commentaries on Spotify followed by 4 acoustic versions at the end of the album.

    Weakest track as of right now: "I" - might have to do something with the fact that the first five tracks being pretty damn good.

    Well I've done MY duty :disco:

    I had to scan the sleevenotes VERY carefully to find where she thanks the other GA members, but she does (not sure why I thought to check for that, but still)

    Oh my God. This album is so good it makes me want to cry.

    I haven't been this excited and thrilled by a pop album since Trip The Light Fantastic, and even that had a couple of meh moments. This is just WALL TO WALL wonderful.

    I wish she hadn't released Porcelain Heart as a b-side. I can only imagine hearing it for the first time in the context of the album :disco:

    Say It Out Loud is my life at the moment.

    And yes, the artwork in the booklet is fucking magnificent. There's been so much love put into this project, especially when you compare it to the cynical box-ticking of Cheryl's efforts. It's just a fucking huge injustice that no-one is going to hear it.

    It's all about "Gladiator" as the "new" track of choice...:disco:

    But yes, "Porcelain Heart" remains the absolute pinnacle. I'm astonished she's pissed it away as a bside...

    Sticks and Stones is SO powerful coming after all the electro-bonkers dance tracks that make up most of the rest of the album. I genuinely welled up. :shy:

    I just checked the universal store website and it says it has been sent, but you're unable to see the date it was. I'll be emailing to complain if it doesn't arrive by tomorrow :evil:
