Super is already #3 on Australian iTunes! I don't think any album since Yes has charted this high.

As I said to you at the time of Electric release, all previous studio albums were manufactured in Australia, and all the back inlays state Made In Australia. This includes Concrete, Pandemonium CD/DVD and The Most Incredible Thing. Pop Art and Potemkin were not pressed locally.
I just noticed that Australian pressing of Elysium is not Discogs, but the standard version was definitely made locally.

Yes, on the underside of the cd it says Manufactured by Optical Media on my copy too!
And mine too. Didn't notice that last night. You guys have better eyes then me!
I wish!! I had to put my reading glasses on & take the CD under a table lamp!! It was still hard to read.

Ahh yes, always remember of PopArt, when I'm wondering about AU releases pressed locally! This may cause my false thinking!

May well be. If you need scans let me know.

Sydney Morning Herald gives Super a 4/5 review in today's Spectrum section. They've yet to post it to the website. Anyone else seen any local reviews?

No, it's on the web site alright. I added it to the first page of the English Language Reviews in the Press Reviews thread.

As already mentioned in the chart watch thread, Super is #12 on this weeks Aria Album chart! From memory I think Electric only got to 22 or 23. You have to go back to Bilingual to find a better chart result. :up:

I'm so happy it's got good chart results. I bought both the actual CD & the album on iTunes. Gotta support the Boys :)

That's a great result.

JB hifi only ordered one vinyl copy for the main Brisbane store. One copy! I picked up a copy from an out of town store in the end. I was the second one they'd sold. Plenty of cds around though. Even bagged a promo poster.

Wow, one copy of the vinyl in Brisbane? Not surprised. I had a hell of a time finding their stuff when I lived there.
