So I thought I might share what transpired at the time Temple of Thought was released in the digi store...this is a pretty close approximation from memory of the conversation we were having in the US street teams facebook page chat box. I should have copied it at the time because it was priceless and now it's gone, but this is what happened while 4 of us were in there chatting and refreshing the web shop for ToT to appear...
Oh, and we were also listening to Marko being interviewed on Radio Nova at this exact time too, even tho we couldn't understand it...
This is an approximation but pretty close, Jackie might be able to offer more details, she was more level headed..

[T] Hey guys??
[J] Too late, they're gone....
Kind of silly but it was pure adrenaline at the time, we had waited so long and we hadn't listened to anything except what had been officially released(except for J of course), so we were very excitable!
Anyway, I loved the excitement of the album release and all the suspense and sharing it with people who feel the same excitement
Now I can't wait for the next release.
