NLOTH leaked one year ago right now :)

The late night/early morning February 17/18, 2009. Who could forget it.

This is the leak thread it happened in - "NLOTH: Do You Feel Leaked???? Leak Thread Part XI"

http://www.u2interference.com/forums...xi-193633.html

Highlights in case you've forgotten:

7:23PM: LemonMelon starts the thread:

Sorry if this was posted before.

U2 : releases : No Line On The Horizon (Digital Album)
11:26PM: AtomicBono is the first person to notice that there is a 'buy mp3' button on the site.

11:29PM: In a frenzy over the longer clips, no one quite notices what AtomicBono said, so she says it again.

People take notice this time, and a bunch of people start saying to try it:

Listen to this woman.

Buying each track costs more than it does to preorder the entire album. There could be a difference.

ill keep you posted
adh1542 keeps everyone updated with the download percentage as everyone waits(and a couple more people try to download it...popacrobat was the other one I saw).

11:37PM: adh1542's download is complete and he is about to see if it is real. Everyone holds their breath.

This thread is dedicated to the person who quite possibly lost his/her job over having enabled the 'buy' button, and to lortonz, who still only has two posts from that night, for bringing the site to our attention, to AtomicBono for spotting the buy button, to adh1542 for testing the file for us, and to U2 for making the music.

I still can't believe I managed to avoid hearing anything but GOYB until the album actually came out.

I've never exhibited a greater display of willpower.

Ha, I remember that night, I went to bed early for once, but woke up around 1 or 2 am, decided to check the leak thread quickly before I went back to bed (I know, how sad that I just had to check before I went back to bed ), and there it was. Within 20 minutes I had it, and stayed up and listened to it twice before going back to sleep all happy.

Went to bed at 9 and woke up at 5 am. Oh dear oh Dear, that was a shock.

Never heard about exactly how everything went down, cool read

This is the funniest to go back and read in the thread.

I gotta say, amidst all the madness and stress, it was good times.

Still sounds great, honestly. We all pick at it a bit now, but I really feel it has held up supremely well, boasting probably the best sequencing they've had in ages, brilliant production, and a clutch of great songs, some of the best they've written this decade. Completely worth the wait.

Those leak threads were hell though, especially the few that preceded that one. I can't live, With Or Without Leaks.../dies

I remember coming on the next day (this was before I was aware it leaked) and seeing endless song appreciation threads and feeling half happy/angry. Happy because it finally leaked and angry because I wasn't there to witness the initial mayhem.

So Interference basically broke the news of the leak to the world, right? That's fucking cool.

we're to blame for U2's poor record sales for No Line and subsequently the delay for Songs of ascent. top notch work guys.

Ahh, good times. I was actually almost about to go to bed!! But I caught it and my heart raced as I ran downstairs to download it. I listened to it that night before I went to bed and was very happy.

I wrote that at least two weeks before I heard the album.

This is why I should be writing for Pitchfork.

I wonder where the person from Universal Austrailia is now? They certainly lost their job that night.

I love that I'm in the recap, and with such a classy demeanor.

That seriously was an amazing night; I was so glad I was there when it happened, but god was that a long week. Those leak puns fried a few synapses in my brain.

I remember that night like it was yesterday. I didn't get any sleep because the music was on nonstop all night. And the forum was CRAZY!
