My Amazon pre-order says "closed due to lack of payment", yet on the album page it says I pre-ordered and will be notified when it's available to download...

Edit: I used an old card, so no transaction. Odd it didn't just pull from my new or alternate payment methods.

The page for the Deluxe Edition on Target.com says it's "not available in stores". Is that a mistake? Because I'm gonna be really bummed if I go into Target tomorrow morning and find out they don't have any copies.

I've bought my copy from iTunes. Going to Target tomorrow to get 2 special edition copies. I think this is their best album.

I also think so-- there has been a vocal minority of negativity on here but I think this is their finest work.

I got an email from Amazon yesterday saying Ghost Stories had been dispatched and would be delivered on Tuesday, an email today saying it'll be delivered today and not long ago it came through my front door! :D x

Did you pay for first class post or the dearer postal option?

I chose the free post option which can take a few days. I ordered it on Tuesday just gone. I just checked the order confirmation email which said the estimated delivery date could be this Thursday or this Saturday! I'm so glad it came today and hope yours is waiting for you when you get home from work! x

Thanks! I never seem to have luck when it comes to ordering pre releases from amazon,even when I pay for first class post!

Edit: Well, for the first time ever, Amazon have delivered a pre order on time! :)

You're welcome! I've never ordered an album online before lol and was wondering how pre-ordering worked in terms of if we would get Ghost Stories on the actual release date. I was really doubting it! Please let me/us know if you get/got your copy today, I'm curious! Actually, by your Edit, does that mean you now have your copy from Amazon? :D x

I ordered mine a few hours ago on Amazon so my physical copy will be in my hands soon :dance: But I also got the dowloadable version (autorip thing) and my first impression is that it's very airy except for ASFOS because it's more on the dancing electro side. I think I will listen to that record a lot :D

I disagree. While a GOOD album, in my opinion, this is not their best work. Lyrically, composition-wise, no Ghost Story but the watered down Sky Full of Stars, too many modern fads.

Perhaps.. I actually agree with you to a degree. But there is no denying that there has been a vocal minority of negativity on here.

Eh. Maybe in some areas. But in others this album just doesn't satisfy. There is a large discrepancy between the good side and bad side
