I can wait. Since the album will be up on the torrent sites within the next week or two anyways. I'll have before it's time for me to go out and buy it.

Not with the way things have been going for the last 4-5 years. Nowadays, we're lucky if an album leaks a week ahead of time. And usually that's because the band streams the entire thing on their myspace. Damn, I miss the old days. :(

No, I miss the old days, when leaking and piece-of-shit mp3s didn't exist.

Depends. This year alone, I've seen albums leak 4 months in advance, and some that leaked 3 days in advance.

The difference is watermarking. When pre-release copies were given to journalists and radio stations on CD they would just rip them and "leak" them. Now everything is watermarked, so if they do that they can be traced and prosecuted by the label.

EIGHT SEVEN SEVEN CASH NOOOOOOOOOOOW

:lol:

Regarding leaks:
I experience everything from 2 months in advance to 2 weeks after the first release date, haha. The Maiden album probably won't leak until days before release, due to severe crack down on it. I wouldn't expect to see it anywhere before the Thursday or Friday before release. I have no problem with this being that Maiden are one of the few (if not only) bands I have a strict "no leak" policy for.

I can wait, I'll buy it when FYE has it for 9.99 (probably first week it's out given Maiden's popularity) but then probably won't open it until who knows when. I would say 20% of my CD collection is still sealed. :eyes:

I'll buy it several months after it's released, when the price has halved.

Does Maiden release new stuff on vinyl anymore? I'm trying to get away from CDs.

I will, in all honesty, download, youtube, or borrow it from someone else. Just like i do every CD nowadays.

AMOLAD and Flight 666 were released on vinyl, so FF has a good chance at it

Well, I got the new Megadeth about a week and a half ahead of time and the new Nevermore a month before the release date. So it should be up somewhere before it's released. I'll still buy the album but there's nothing wrong with taking advantage of it being available to listen to before the street date.

I can wait, I'll buy it when FYE has it for 9.99 (probably first week it's out given Maiden's popularity) but then probably won't open it until who knows when

Damn, FYE is still in business where you live? Three out of the four in my area have closed within the last six months. Besides Wall-Mart and Best Buy i'm not gonna have too many places to get CDs anymore around here.

I don't really care.
El Dorado wasn't anything special so that certainly didn't bring my hopes up. It took me more than a year to get around to listening to AMOLAD, I foresee the same with this.

Me too. I don't do downloads in any way. But I don't buy them in shops. They just don't exist beyond the charts, and the prices are terrible. I have to buy everything online.
