Update on Disintegration remastered set

Update 3: Uncut did not publish their review in this month's issue. (Thanks Keith)

Update 2:
Wired has a brief mention of the set in the April issue, and Uncut says they will have a review of it in their next issue. (Thanks Screamer, Heron, and Keith)

Pause & Play says the new release date is May 25th in North America. Will this be the date that actually sticks?
(Thanks Slicing Up Eyeballs)

"I spoke with someone the other day via the Rhino family and they don’t seem to have a new date in mind for the remaster…not sure what the hold up is and neither did they". (Thanks Friend of CoF)

And as previously mentioned, Universal has delayed it in Europe, and are now hoping for a late May release date.
