The "tuck" rule, like in Ace Ventura perhaps.

Just search the torrent sites and you'll find it.

Or go over to atease. There's a thread there.

I was going to download, but I heard the sound quality sucks, so I'm going to wait until a better leak arrives.

I was going to be good but it feels much better to be bad.

quality isn't spectacular but it's not terrible by any stretch... a million times better than, say, the first leak of pearl jam, which was just dreadful quality.

listening now

I figured you'd measure it against the Pearl Jam leak.

At least it's listenable. That's good. Mayble I'll download it later after all.

the leak's a little low in volume so you just have to turn the volume up and don't forget to turn it back down again before you listen to something else... other than that it's just fine, if CD quality is 100% and iTunes mp3 is, oh, 90-95%, the leak's in the mid 80s (the pearl jam leak, to compare again, i'd put in the 30s)

i like the second half of the album more than the first half, not that the first half was bad by any stretch but the run of Magic - Last to Die - Long Walk Home - Devil's Arcade and especially Terry's Song is

your own worst enemy is my least favorite on the album... Radio Nowhere is probably the 4th or 5th best track on the album, imo of course.

not perfect, but very very good.

I had actually read others saying that the second half is much stronger, specifically the songs you mention.

Terry's Song is the bonus track - cool that it was added.

Can't wait to listen.

I'm listening right now -- so exciting! I like the music a lot on first listen, but have no idea yet how I'll compare it to The Rising or other works. I'll need time to let it sink in.

I agree with Headache about the recording -- it's decent, but you have to turn it up a bit.

As does Last To Die.

"We'll be the last to die for a mistake"

Can't wait to see the lyrics to these songs.

Devil's Arcade might be my favorite so far -- haunting, heartfelt, beautiful melody.

Overall impressions of the album are that it's very well written, very high-quality Bruce. I'm really looking forward to getting to know these songs.

wow, that was the easiest experience I've ever had getting a ticket via ticketmaster. Got in, got a GA for Hartford, and was out by 10:01.
