Do you know how much time and money goes into creating an album? £20 for an album is a bargain.

Haha sorry I may have come across a bit harsh there sorry guys, not a massive fan of spending money (shocker) makes me angry so wrote that post in rage.

No I totally agree £20 is a good price in relation to other forms of media, it just annoyed me at the time as other bands and artists offer their records for sale closer to the £7 mark than the £20 mark even for pre order.

I believe shipping ended up being nearly £5? That's what annoyed me most, and that isn't frank's fault at all!

I think you finding it expensive isn't the issue. If it's a lot of money to you, then that's fair enough, and you've a perfect right to express your frustration at that. But statements like this:
I mean, does Frank know he has dedicated fans so knows he can charge extortionate amounts for the album?
...are making a much more inflammatory allegation. You appear to be trying to make the logical connection that "I am having trouble affording this, I am a fan of frank, therefore frank is deliberately ripping off all his fans", which doesn't follow even intrinsically, and you shouldn't be surprised at the reaction you get.

I'm not surprised in fact I'm very sorry I made that statement, it was intended as a joke that part as I know Frank respects his fans much more than most artists, I'm sorry that it came across wrong and it really wasn't funny at all.

Thats cos you ordered the vinyl. No one will charge £7 for a 12" album. Shipping is cheaper for the CD version of the album.

If you go to the homepage, click one of the preorder options then it gives you a link there.

Read all 4 pages of this thread looking for discussion of the album, of which there has been some, but scrolling through mostly technical stuff about pre-orders!
I can't afford to pre-order it as I'm starting a job next month and only then will the money be coming in. I'll most likely get it on release day.

It will certainly be interesting to hear a more emotional album from Frank, it's been very lofty and grand lately

I got paid last week but alas all the money has now performed its monthly disappearing trick on rent and bills so ordering this will have to wait until next payday...boourns.
