    Re: A Note Re: Leaks and Traversing

    TheRuleofThree, for the second time today, my point exactly. I know that probably 100% of people here will download it without any harm to the band. But lots of people are just lazy and when they have a high quality leak, they won't bother to move and buy it.
    Totally agree about the preorder as well, I hope they will do it in the next few weeks like they did with Fillmore CD (and even sent a signed poster!). That really will get the most of the excitement!
    To be able to download it AFTER it is already officially out, I don't really bother with that, because it's almost the same to download it or buy it (I don't think $12-15 are really big deal). But with a leak, it's different and you said what I feel about that.
    Many friends yet still a loner...

      This is the correct logic. The only albums I buy now, are ones that are out of print...or ones that are poorly ripped/encoded. Then when I obtain them I put them on the internet. While we still have a choice between a physical copy of an album, and a digital copy..the only one you should be paying for is the physical. All of you on this board love dredg enough to go beyond just listening to them. You attend their shows, you buy their shirts...and you post/read about them here. The majority of dredg fans have not bought their cd's. They have downloaded it, illegally.
      This is a record I think all of you will be satisfied with. Go buy the cd. Any of those fans that were "pushed away" from the content of CWA, welcome back.
      I did not get to listen to this record from any sort of leak. I don't know when it will leak or how. But, I can assure you....however long you have to wait to hear it...it will certainly be worth the time. A punch to the solar plexus.

        What makes you think that the majority of dredg's fans don't own their CDs?

          Because they don't. There are more people who obtained their records by downloading them...instead of actual purchases. dredg has more fans than records sold...how is that possible? Do you think dredg has more than 100,000 fans? They haven't sold that many records combined. Internets...the internets. On another note.....dredg's biggest fanbase is not in the states..it's in Germany. They are more popular there than they have ever been here.

            look kids, it's your choice whether or not you wanna download the studio version of "i don't know"

            it's out there.

            i didn't post it, therefore it's not my problem.

            i'm not sharing the link because i'm a giant asshole.

            but it's out there.

              apenguininthedesert,

              i may be in the minority of those here, but i would like to hear a little bit about the record. not a play-by-play of what's on there, but things that jump out, if you feel like doing that. something to whet the appetite. hearing about instruments used, styles, etc. tends to keep me engaged and thinking about the album before it hits my ears.

              so, impressions, i suppose, not spoilers. if you have the time.

              glad you are enjoying it though. that in itself is a good start.

                It's not a studio version of I don't know. It's actually a demo version of a song that didn't make the record.

                    The drums on the record sound incredible.


                    This is also "one" of the biggest surprises on the album for me.

                    Oh..I'm sure there are other links...the "Studio" version of I Don't Know has been going around since early this afternoon.

                          yeah, i don't know if i want to hear 'i don't know' on its own.

                          i want the first listen to be the whole thing.

                            I don't know how many fans they have or whether these fans actually have listened to more than a few songs. 100,000? I doubt it's that high.

                            And more fans than CDs sold does not make a "majority"

                                I just don't see how that is even possible. dredg even has an Oceansize-like song on here....for the first time.
