    For those whose code didn't work yet -

    Mine did work but it only let me download the .rar file once. I tested to see in case anything happens if I'd be able to re-download them, but it blocks you out after the first time the code goes through and you can't get back in afterwards. I don't understand why they don't just send the download link to your e-mail account :squint:

    So yea, precaution to all - download that shit right when you get the code activated and back it up!

    I got a quite depressing update via UPS:
    It's in Dortmund right now, and the estimated delivery time is thursday afternoon.

    At least it's on its way now.

    I started the download and everything was going smooth, and then I lost internet connection for literally 30 seconds...and now I think I'm screwed because it won't finish.

    Anyone who has the tracks already, would you mind helpin a brother out and sending them to me?


    EDIT: WickedSymphony came to my rescue!

    Didn't get mine today. These distribution companies need to get their shit together. I can't friggin stand when I pre-order something and I get it late. I could have bought it on i-tunes last night. Now I have to wait until whenever the hell it arrives.

    ugh... i have a personal belief that distributors should ship this stuff to us so we get it BEFORE the release date. dont like having to wait longer for something i paid for first

    I have listened to Ghost now. Good stuff, nice and mellow. I'm doing an all nighter at work tonight so I've got Deconstruction loaded up on my mp3 player

    Actually played Ghost while doing an overnight shift recently, worked really well as the sun was shortly coming.

    Deconstruction was good, though I think I will need a few more listens to really start to get all the little bits and pieces that are in there. I find most of Dev's albums take a couple of listens for me to get into, I used to not be so hot for Synchestra and now it's one of my favourites

    ^ Indeed.
    First song I heard (leak) was "Sumeria". First up, it was very easily digestable, and over the top heavy. After I've pressed the replay button a couple of times, I realize more and more details naturally pop up to me, like for example the choir becoming more noticeable each time.

    Devins music is pretty much a really brilliant whisky: You can enjoy it on the fly in a drink, and compare it to previous tastes, but each time you take a sip, more delicate notes develop and enhances the experience, thus creates a need to try the whisky raw.
    (You listen to a song or two, it sounds cool, but each time you take a listen, more details comes to life, and you want to listen to it in full HD on a master stereo)

    A completely extreme opposite: SlipKnoT, aka the premixed rum n' coke. :lol:

    Just got mine this afternoon!

    When I ordered it, I thought each of the albums would be double disc, now I see they meant they would both come together, I wanted bonus discs...

    Other than that misunderstanding on my part, I'm fuckin stoked!!!

    Exact same problem with me: I ordered a ton of CDs along with my decon/ghost-bundle, and if I ordered them seperately, I would only wait on the bundle now, and not on 10 CDs.
