Great news. I should be getting my hands on a copy of this soon, so I hope to have a review up ASAP.

Great. That Atlantic City cover you put up is fantastic. Can't stop listening to it. The Lily Allen one is different.

Glad you enjoyed it. Can't wait to get my hands on this. It'll be much better than the Dark Was the Night comp.
