i totally agree.

some great guitar sounds on this....Spellbound has an awesome solo at the end reminescent of Radiohead...even some Edge like guitar lines on some of the tracks.

and holy crap - the last two minutes of 10:03 gives me goosebumps.

After one listen through, I have no specific words of praise or criticism to impart. I think the album is fantastic and lacks any truly weak tracks, but the leak sounds pretty compressed and generally crappy, so I don't want to say anything more. But rest assured, for those who are waiting until the 7th, you won't be disappointed.

Favorite: Winter Hill
Least favorite: 10:03

Now I need to listen to all of their albums in order to see how Kingdom Of Rust stands up within the context of their discography.

I thought the leak was ripped at 320? It doesn't sound good?

This might cause me to wait to listen then.

Indeed it was. While I would agree that the production here is awesome, as there is a ton of ambition going on here, and a lot of nifty bells and whistles that sound great and suit the music...there is a lack of dynamic range on the MP3s I listened to, particularly The Outsiders, which is simply too big for its bitrate. Of course, I'm an audiophile, so most won't be bothered by it. I just feel that the album deserves a listen in the best quality possible before any specific criticisms are made. I felt the same way about NLOTH and was not disappointed.

it's pretty great throughout and doesn't let up....in fact, i think the second half of the album might be the strongest. Spellbound and House of Mirrors are immense. Compulsion has a monster bass.

don't know much about audio, but the rip i have sounds pretty damn good...i'll still buy the cd when it comes out though

I your strength at holding out, I used to be good at it, but good quality leaks have ruined me, I told myself there was no way I'd listen to NLOTH before having it in my hands, but after 4+ years a decent rip broke my conviction quite easily
