No it’s not. But they played it when the show was over as people were leaving and mingling.

Judging by people's comments so far, Till Tomorrow is a very good song. My copy of Touch can't come soon enough. . .

Till Tomorrow ,Boris Blank on wrote, this fine music, in honour of memory about Michael Jackson.

But this my assumption.

I don't think that is possible, Jackson died just a few months ago while Touch has been in publishing stasis for much longer.

I haven't got my copy either. Got a reply today from IdealCopy saying that they haven't even got it in stock from Europe and not sure when this will happen. Very frustrating! I realise most people got it from somewhere. Is it Amazon.de?

Any store within Europe should do the trick I think (like amazon.de).

I just had an email from IdealCopy saying they have exhausted their sources and not sure when they might be able to stock the new CD. A few weeks of waiting for nothing... a bit upsetting... :x

That really sucks man! I’ve seen a number of copies now on eBay. I would cancel the order and just order one from there.

Got the new album today and oh my is this thing worth years of waiting or what? 8)
Absolutely stunning. Rich of atmosphere (I feel like I'm sitting in a dusty corner of a lounge), sound quality is incredible (this is a no brainer since it is a Yello album ;) ).

By the way, some aspects of the album I'm not so happy with:
1. I think The Expert deserves to be a bit longer towards the end, felt like it ended too quickly after we stopped hearing Dieter's vocals. Simply looping the female 'ah' segment once would maybe have worked good to prepare us for track 2 better which is much more laid back.

2. What is a Bostich remix doing in the newest masterpiece of our favorite band? I read somewhere that Boris made dozens of demos, so why did he reuse old material (from the early 1980s no less) instead of developing one of those demos to a full fledged track to sit in track 4's seat?

3. Still on the subject of Bostich (Reflected), the first minute of the song is simply epic, the way the power builds up (reminds me of Blender), but the problem I have with this one is that the rest of the track has absolutely nothing to do with that intro whatsoever. To my ears, what I had been prepared for until 1:00 was quickly shattered when the intro suddenly vanished at around 1:00 and Bostich started. In my opinion Boris should have ditched Bostich, kept the intro and developed the track to reflect that awesomeness, like what Blender did.
Though I will say that Bostich (Reflected) had a very cool outro. ;)

4. Tangier Blue and Stay need to be longer!


There are far too many positive things to list so I'll leave it at that; AMAZING album with a few minor shortcomings. ;)

I am happy with the CD but I really want the vinyl version but it keeps getting delayed (Dec 4th now) and the price keeps going up.

My CD still hasn't arrived. :/

*edit.

Looks like my order didn't go through! :( I've ordered it again. Yello have fans all over the world, so why stagger the release and not give any clue as to when us UK/US/Aus, etc fans will get it locally?
