I will definitely be missing "And Winter Came" at the Christmas party.

Actually its up to 14 in the short time since the post. But don't put too much stock in the numbers, Nickelback is 11 so it can't be too hard to climb the ladder.

Nickelback's high position reflects the fact that it's currently selling a lot of copies....and the fact that it's selling a lot of copies reflects the poor taste of the people who are buying it...

Either way, Nickelback wasn't that high on pre-orders nearly 3 months before it's release

I've been skeptical about the double album thing all the way along, but when I saw on Amazon that the booklet that accompanies the "CD only" option is 24 pages long, I got a bit excited. It wouldn't be 24 pages of photos. Could that much page space be required to contain the credits to 22 songs?

Also, what's a "jewel case"? For the reason above, I'm hoping there's no such thing and that it's a misspelling of "dual case". But that might be pushing it.

Isn't a jewel case the plastic case that CDs come in?

Yeah, a jewel case is just the standard plastic case that CDs come in

Good point - let's hope it's a dual jewel.

At Amazon's $9.99, I hardly think this is going to be a 2 Disc album... I own many of U2's vinyl offerings, and it isn't unusual for them to be on 2 LP's.  An LP just can't hold as much as a CD, so it isn't unusual for a 1 disc album to come on 2 LP's.  Rattle and Hum is the obvious one, but if I remember right a couple of the more recent albums were also released on 2 LP's. I'd have to dig them out of their storage to be certain.

It wouldn't surprise me though if some of the more expensive editions have a bonus CD of some sort.  Radiohead did this with the special edition of In Rainbows. I'm not sure the 2nd disc was worth it, but it was there.

The rumor that I shared in one of my OTR columns a couple months ago was that one album would be released on CD, the other only via online services. That may have changed, and maybe there won't be a 2nd album, but we never heard anything about 2 CDs.

U2 albums are so much about the whole being greater than the sum of the parts, I don't see them attempting a double album. That said I am hoping for a double album just as much as all of you guys!

Either way, I'm just happy with "any" new music!  :)

From the latest information on the Q minisite, I assume it's not a double album - unless Q have been ordered not to give the surprise away by reviewing more than ten to twelve songs. I have to say, I was relieved at the idea of a single disc with twelve stunners. Quantity, it turns out, is not my priority.
