Great to know the cd's have a 'real signature' and not a copy. I finally received my email to say it's been dispatched. Hopefully I can watch Carl personally sign my other cd.

Glad every one is getting their CDs now ... maybe they had more pre-ordered than was originally anticipated and carl had to rush back in to sign some more Very Happy

I was in JB Hi-Fi this afternoon; and as I walked in, I heard a very familiar voice singing all through the store!! They were playing THE RISE and did it sound great, loud!! :cheers:
So I scurried around the place to find the spot where I could hear it best and then just stood there listening, with a silly grin on my face, until a security guard started looking at me funny. :geek:
Then I ambled past the check-out queue and noticed that some of those waiting, were tapping their feet and their hands in time to the music.

Not only does Carl make me happy, but many others too!! Woohoo!!

I was so frustrated at the general store this morning where we pick up our mail. They hadn't sorted todays mail and I peeked into the huge sack they had on the desk and thought....oh!! my signed cd's probably in there somewhere!!! Sad Oh well...hopefully it'll be there for me tomorrow morning... So it sounds like all of us have just about got the cd now then!!! Very Happy

I love the album more and more every day...my favourites are changing all the time..fav atm is Smooth Operator and The Letter!! I am blown away by Carl's falsetto at the end!!! How cool is that!!!! I do find tho that altho I love Waltzing Matilda, that I think I like the Idol jazzier version just a little bit better, but that being said, I still love it!!

Yeah...it was the same for me sensor!! When I went into to buy my cd, Lido was blaring out and the girl who served me said they had been playing it all morning!! Very Happy

ps...if anyone would like to wander back to the old Idol forums I have made a thread there about the album... some person called thedude started a thread with some not so nice comments about the cd..you guys remember all those negative posters over there!!! It'd be nice to have a few extra comments in my thread to put this dude back in his place!!! http://www.australianidol.com.au/forums/forum.jspa?forumID=51

It depends what kind of mood I am in as to which songs I love the most at any particular time.

For me last night, I just had SO, WM, LFIL and PI on repeat, I only wanted to hear those songs last night. I adore Smooth Operator- I never did before when Sade sang it.

You'd think that after working with Carl for four years, I'd know how good he is ! BUT, I had know idea how amazingly great he is !! I LOVE his debut album ! Today at work, my supervisor had it blaring out of his office. Well done Carl, I'm so happy and proud of you !! Very Happy

Hey sensor

yeah, I'm in the Navy Band and have had the good fortune to spend my working days in the presence of the lovely Carl. Honestly, he is one of the most genuine, humble, talented and thoughtful guys I've had the good fortune to work with .( oh, and he's pretty easy on the eye, as we all know ! ) Sure isn't the same now that he's gone !

Wow norah!!
What a lovely thing to say about Carl. And you couldn't get much closer than a four-year working relationship to really know someone!! I love you

I guess that's one of the reasons I so loved watching Carl on Idol. Every week he was just himself - a lovely, gentle, genuine guy, who was willing to work hard and learn.

And oh yes, his debut album is gorgeous - just like him!! :cheers:

Norah! You must be proud of your workmate, and proud to know him. Sounds like your supervisor thinks so too! And what's there to not like about him?

I think we should all cast out any niggling little doubts we may be harbouring about our Honeyman. There's absolutely no going down for The Rise! He just keeps getting better and better!

And deep down inside we all knew he would - otherwise we wouldn't be here on this forum. Right Elise?

I still haven't got my CD from JB though, so glad I went and bought one on Saturday.

My darling little girls did that too Monet! They even had just his trumpet (his baby) as the cover. When I lent it to a friend the other day it was set to page 4 (love that one too!) when I went to pick the CD up from her she had it back to the cover page - which means she'd had a bit of a flick through. This lady is 60 and she immediately looked at Carl and commented on his looks!

Wow....what a job!! I reckon if I worked with Carl, instead of dragging myself out of bed and not wanting to go to work in the morning, I'd be going in early and loving every minute!! Did you go to Iraq as well Norah? Must have been a very fullfilling but scary experience I think... Did Carl sing a lot in the Navy Band? And I bet he misses all you guys as well!!

I know we all have our copies of The Rise, but Undercover.com.au have a competition where you can go on and win a copy of the cd.... Their review of the album is a short one, but very positive!! Hopefully if we all go on and enter the competition they will realise that Carl has a good fan base out here!! Here's the site to go to..

Whilst checking the Brisbane citysearch site I found an interesting review of Carl's CD. Have a read if you enjoy reading other's opinions.

http://brisbane.citysearch.com.au/music/viewContent/1119945819829/1137585017542

There's also a 'recommend this' link. So far there are only 2 recommendations (1 mine).

Oh I hope you get your CD soon Clayford! It's all there on iTunes now though. Just follow the link from the Carl Riseley website (the shop link) and it takes you there. Plus it has the 13th track! I just listened to it now and I love it! :cheers: It's swingin'!!!!!

But why haven't you got yours yet Kris? C-fan and I live in Perth and we got ours on Wednesday! :confused:

I wrote a review on the www.chaos.com.au site a few days back, but unless I am missing something, I have no idea in the world, if it has been posted up or not, I cannot work out where to go to see what I wrote, I know it was all extremely positive (as if it wouldn't be otherwise).
