Annnddddd I'm halfway through my second listen! Excellent album!!!!!!
Definitely not "cinematic", like his other albums in which Benn seems to be telling a story. This one is just a bunch of really fun, well crafted tracks. So happy!!! :D

I'm on "DIN Celebration" right now, and, just like every single album from Benn, I'm astounded by the sound design. Spectacular work. Can't wait to see him on Friday! Sucks about the early leak though. I think that's why he just opened it early.

As much as I'd love to give it a listen right now (and I am really tempted to), I'll wait for it to be in my mail. Hopefully - with the new and improved delivery system - it will be here soon. Has someone already got theirs? It would be great to see the unique photographs.

Just checked my order, and apparently it just left the Chicago area... at like 12:45am local time?!!!
Maybe, juuuuust maybe, if I'm super lucky, it'll arrive in tomorrow's mail. Probably not until Wednesday though.

Mine was mailed friday so I was really hoping it would be here today but no...
I couldn't wait to listen however and I really like this album although I wish it was longer! 11 tracks (clocking in at 39 minutes) and we've already heard 3 of those :/ Can't wait to see what exactly a tree patch is? :)

They were mailed yesterday. Friday is when the labels were created and we got the emails, but they didn't get dropped off at the post office until Monday.

From what I can tell by the tracking info, I don't think I'll be getting mine today. It looks like it's still in Illinois.

A patch of cloth that you can sew onto another piece of clothing. And the image on that patch will be of a tree.
Pretty sure that's it.

Right. Like the kinds of patches you used to see kids sewing onto their jeans and jackets in the 90's. Might just have to do that myself... LOL
