The new album from The National is currently on pre-order. I thought to myself, "Hey, I bet that would be a nice album to purchase, let's get on that!". Then I see pricing on the Americanmary.com site for pre-orders and have to come to grips of being in 'The Great White North'. See below for total price (in USD) for the double LP, shipped including taxes: ***edit: ignore the image above (see two posts below) - this is inflammatory over-exaggeration statement on my part. It really would have made a great point tho! *Kalispell, MT & Calgary, AB were shipping locations used. **Oh, and the MT address had faster shipping included in their price. Shipping to Canada, amiright? Who else has ridiculous stories to share?
