God, I'm looking forward to and dreading the album release at the same time.

The rest of the world's gonna get it a day before the US, so I'm basically gonna avoid Interference in that time (although lord knows it'll leak before then), plus the freaking stores suck here and even the 24 hour ones won't put it out at midnight.

This is gonna be as bad as when the last Harry Potter book came out, except it won't take me 12 hours to listen to (or however long it took me to inhale that book)

Downloading leaks is made of SuperWin.

Noooo, I can't do it! I have a new album ritual. I can't compromise it. When I get a new album, I shut myself in my room, unwrap it, then lay on my bed and listen to it while flipping through the booklet. It is a sacred act.

Well actually, according to the latest news in WTAHNN, Bono came out in a letter to Rolling Stone and has said that it is their "most complete and radical album to date"

I find hard copies of albums so useless that unless the new album has some sensational deluxe edition, I won't be buying it anyway. My new U2 album ritual is to wait for it to leak and listen to it on Interference as I post my initial impressions.

It's to easy to download a leak. And too tempting.

If it's available, I might as well listen. It's not as if downloading it on, say, 1 November is going to make the first listen any better or worse than waiting for some nominal release date of 18 November, especially since that in this day and age, release dates are a legacy of old distribution methods that lack relevance.

Call me old fashioned, but I like having my pretty discs that I can touch. Plus I don't keep my CDs ripped to my computer anymore. Seems kind of silly to use up that hard drive space when my CD rack is a few feet away.

Leaves me more room for games, photos, nerdy programs and graphics

Yes, I agree.

And I actually have fond memories of listening to HTDAAB in my college dormitory on the morning that it leaked. I was a lurker on Interference back then and got the link from this very website. I absolutely loved the album on first listen...I still enjoy it but I can't honestly say that I take pleasure in every song on the album.

ABOY, in particular, does nothing for me.

I find it a pain to grab a CD whenever I want to listen to it - especially given the size of my music collection. I'd hate to think how little room I'd have if I had all of this stuff on CD!

I've never been one for the booklets (which are often illegible) or cover art anyway. I just want the music, so digital music is ideal for me.

It's embarrassing how much I liked HTDAAB when it leaked. I remember the night it leaked well. I'd just gone to bed and I heard my IM beep. Normally I'd have ignored it, but for some reason, I got up and found it was somebody informing me the album had leaked. A couple of hours and a short power cut thanks to storm activity later, and I had the whole album and was gushing profusely over it. Now it's one of my three least favourite U2 albums. I could especially do without SYCMIOYO, OOTS, and Yahweh.
