How to translate this sentence:

Oh My God fue el single de presentación de su **esperadísimo** disco Chinese Democracy que salió en 1998 y ***todavía no hemos podido disfrutar del álbum entero***

Oh my God was the opening single of the ***long awaited*** Cd 'Chinese Democracy? that was published in 1998 and ***still we do not have enjoyed the entire album***

--->??? sounds quite weird right?

    "long-awaited" sounds fine to me... though I would change a few things:

    Oh my God was the first single off the long-awaited CD 'Chinese Democracy', which was released in 1998 and we still haven't been able to enjoy the whole/entire album.

    Yes, Aztlaniano, those are other good translations, but given the context, people have been waiting for Guns'n'Roses' new album to come out now for ten years, so I think that "long awaited" (not to mention long overdue... hmmm, maybe you should use that one dtowndo) is appropriate here.

    Yes, of course you're right. Even if in 1998 it was merely "much awaited", by now it certainly is safe to say "long awaited.
