Gord Downie (R.I.P.) has made a wonderful album which should be in the homes of all Canadians because it has a message for true canadians and for canada itself. By all rights he deserves the Nobel Prize for this album.
Beautiful album and packaging, pressing sounds great. This is available at HMV in Canada for 49.99 plus tax, probably not for long, but worth a look, I just picked one up yesterday (Nov 5th)
