Some alternate ways to handle the HTDAAB leak...

1. Listen to the songs with no restraint
2. Abstain till Nov. 23
3. Treat yourself to one new song each day till the abum comes out (start on the 13th)
4. Listen to only the tracks you've already heard in the higher quality
5. Listen to a couple of the new less popular tracks like one step closer and crumbs from your table and save the rest till nov. 23
6. Listen to all the songs non stop for one day and then delete the and don't listen again till nov.23

Which one are you doing?
Does anyone else have ideas of what to do?
Personally, I'm doing number 6...

I'm abstaining until nov 23. It's gonna take a lot of effort from me, but it's the best thing to do.

I'm debating whether or not to take the CD with me in the car. I'm afraid my 15 minute drive to work might have to be extended to 50 minutes because I won't be able to stop listening midway.

same here. we've been waiting for four years for a new album, but the band wanted us to wait, so a few more days can't hurt.

Sentimentalists

This is creazy we all swap songs all year long, most still available in shops and don't feel a thing. A new album comes and you all of a sudden get this sentimental morality based on zip!!

let's be consistent not Pharisees!!!!

Well, I could wait for a coupla week till the official release.

But since this will be the only CD I'll listen to the next 2 yrs, what's a few extra weeks on my playlist.

7. Limit yourself to a dial up connection and take an hour and a half to download 3 tracks from that bloke's dodgy web site (I got MD, LAPOE, OOTS only)

Waiting 4 years is long enough. The smell of the CD booklet is just not all that magical to me, I prefer the music.

I listened to it yesterday, and now I can't find the files on my computer. I guess I needed to take an extra step and save the files - I'm an idiot when it comes to downloading music from the Internet, I do it so seldom. I guess I could download again since I have broadband and it's not a huge bother, but I think I will just wait until Nov. 23 to hear it again. If I get really desperate, there's always the streaming on Nov. 16 at the NME site.
