Would you listen to a full album leak?

I was thinking the other night about how mtv.com sometimes does The Leak, when they offer fans the chance to hear an entire album a few days before it's released. So I wondered, would U2 do something like this and would I listen to it or hold out for the few extra days?

THEN I thought, what if the entire album gets leaked onto Kazaa, which is a good possibility. Would I listen to it? When Madonna's Music album got leaked, I did download the entire thing and while it was a temporary rush, it took a lot of the thrill out of going to buy the album the day it came out.

Will YOU indulge yourself if/when the new album leaks? Why or why not?

I won't go hunting all over the internet for it (I don't have the time to hunt and download etc). But if it were easliy accessable like the ABOY leak, I would indulge. I would still go out and buy the CD the minute it's available. I've waited too long for it.

I think if I was insane I would. My main concern going throught my mind is, when the day comes do I put it in my van cd player or do I(this whant I usually do) wait until I get home , lie on my bed with cd cover in hand and listen to it at least 2 times.

I definitely wouldn't listen to it. I've waited a long time for this, so id rather undulge after i buy it instead of downloading it. Its just not the same without the liner notes.

I don't think so.

ATYCLB had tiny 30 sec leaks on this forum, and I listened to those - and AFAIK the whole album was out on the internet a few days before the release, but I didn't listened to THE leak.

More importantly, would you listen to U2 take a leak? If it was leaked of course.

Since U2 albums don't come out often......I want to indulge myself by putting on headphones and blaring the stereo. I can look at the CD jacket and booklet on the drive home! I swear I am going to wait.

Buying the album!? Who does THAT anymore!?



J/K!!!

I'll probably buy TWO copies!

On a serious note, though, it will likely be the only major-record label album I will have bought in years due to my boycott of RIAA labels. U2 is the only band right now that will make me deviate from that.

I plan on listening to it for the first time in Central Park on my expensive headphones.

I'd download it... listen to it... get bored of it (due to repeated listens)... and buy it when it comes out...

I would listen to it after downloading it a few days before it was ofificially released. There is no more thrill of buying an album and listening to it for the first time. That thrill was ruined by having to drive through horrible traffic, going inside the store, being asked if I need a new cellphone, finding the album, walking to the register, standing in line for 20 minutes, trying to pay with my debit card, having the stupid debit card machine mess up, then getting back into my car, having to drive through crappy traffic, getting home and then realizing I don't have time to listen to the album because I have to go to class or something, eventually finding time to listen to the CD, then having to try to open the CD, having to find a razor blade to get the damn sticker off the edge of the CD, and then FINALLY GETTING TO LISTEN TO THE ALBUM.

Would I? Yerbugger I would!

One of the cooler experiences for me with ATYCLB was downloading the entire album a week before it was released and then finding out that the "Walk On" mp3 I had was actually somethinng from Salome that I hadn't heard.

Eventhough U2 has Millions... I will buy every album they release because I appreciate everything they do. Their music is the sound track of my life. Buying a cd and seeing U2 in concert is a small thank you that I can give them.

Thank You U2,
HulaShad
