In Our Bedroom After the War

I haven't seen any publicity around this yet, but if you go to eMusic, the new Stars album In Our Bedroom After the War is now available. I haven't finished listening to it yet, so I'll refrain from further comment, but I just thought I'd get the word out.

Incidentally, I note that the official release date isn't until September 25. What's the point of this kind of delay? I mean, I realize it happens all the time these days, but it seems weird.
