...arrived today. It's the same packaging as the UK CD, but with a 2CD slipcase and that lovely inconspicuous 'Copyright Controlled' logo splashed about.

As stated elsewhere, the tracks are:
1. Idaho
2. Anthem For Bored Youth
3. Girl Least Likely
4. All Things

'Anthem' is a lovely, typically 'arch' ditty, occasionally in Tango time, with a simple piano and accordion backing (excellent playing from the boy Tiersen).

I've put up a pic of the second CD *here*. (Not sure about this blue and white thing. I get the connection but it still looks garishly out of place with the muted tones of the rest of the cover.)

Just heard this song and I love it!

Thank you, blue circles, for an upload, elsewhere. Yeah, yeah. Of course I'll get the single eventually.

Glad it's not just me. Still, it might turn up on a special day as it hasn't arrived yet...

the artwork is lovely, but the cd itself...

If it's not too much trouble could somebody scan it?

I'd like to see what all the fuss is about..

I'm starting to sound like Alphi

Thanks! I too originally thought it was simply bad taste in typesetting.

Just ordered the import for a ridiculous price...all for 1 song!
The things we do for love.

Went to Brussels the other day, and all the Absent Friends in the stores I've visited are the double disc. It costs 18 euros.
Oh and they're all copy protected of course. Mine plays well, if that' any relief for u.
