Awesome cover! I am going to use it in iTunes. Saw this in Walmart for $7.99. I am going to buy it.

Looks like this has been pushed back until September... HMV are now showing a 21st September release date instead of 22nd June!

Glad I got my £5 import in HMV when they were having a clearout! :D

Its an ok cover. They look stunning, but I dont like the pink lettering or the checkers.

I wanted something really raw and edgy like the 'Untouched' video. Something like Nerina Pallot's 'Fires' cover art would be much better.

They should aim more rock than pop IMO. Thats where Kelly Clarkson has slipped up with 'All I Ever Wanted'. Its My least favourite album cover of all time.

A new track?! :D It better leak before September!

I love the electro-pop neon kind of style the Veronicas have, definitely one the coolest styles to come out of the local industry.

I think they're great.

I've just listened to the other singles on the internet.

The standard of singles is so high. I like 'Hook Me Up' best, but I dont know if it would be better for Autumn, so they could release 'Take Me On The Floor' second as a summer single, and then release 'Hook Me Up' in about September - plus its a school themed video, which would go well for people returning to school in september.

'This Love' is a ballad, so they might release it 3rd, but other artists like Katy Perry, who is similar to them, didn't really have successful ballad singles.

I hate the label for pushing this back :x

I'm sure I read somewhere they were gonna release 4ever as the next single over here. Which would be a bit silly considering how old it is, but, out of all the other potential singles I can imagine that being the biggest hit, so I wouldn't be too annoyed.

That's strange :-? I've seen the UK version in shops since the summer! #26 in the midweeks, which is pretty disappointing :(

It'll probably fall to about #35 because the Pre-Orders were sent early in the week. Its a shame. They should've released the album after 'Untouched', which is SUCH a strong song to launch with.

Its a shame, but it'll rise. I'll get the album when its cheap.

They really need to get a 3rd single on the go in the UK!

I just downloaded the album, cost me £3.90 cos I'd already got the two singles, so it asked me if i'd like to complete the album.
