One month before the album release.

Too soon? :think:

Typically we find snippets first on some digital media site selling the album before a leak, at which time the forum divides into 2 warring parties, the “not gonna listen” and the gonna listen”

Sign me up for the ‘not gonna listen’ crew!

you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

For crying out loud! Why? Just wait for the official release. Instead, we're gonna get pestered by some blowhards who've already heard the leaks. Congratulations on ruining the experience of the excitement of buying the record and then listening to it. I'm old fashioned and won't ruin my experience.

Leaks are a thing from the past. Promos are not sent out on cd or lp anymore and (watermarked) streaming is a thing. And if they do have a physical release, people don't know how to rip them. Just look/listen to the Decide sample that was posted last week...

Rubbish. The recent Coldplay album leaked 2 weeks before release.

Some of the private music torrent sites I'm a member of regularly have albums available way ahead of official release. Not that I would ever download from them, just a member for research purposes. Ahem.

There are actually three warring parties:

25% who say they will not listen and in fact do not listen.
25% who say they will not listen but in fact do listen.
50% who download that bitch so fast their head spins and listen until their ears bleed!! :D

So if you've pre ordered 3 copies in different formats of Hotspot from the OS is it technically stealing if you download it if/when it leaks?

Moral dilemma of the day. Answers on a postcard please.

If you own a car is it technically stealing if you drive off in your neighbour’s car whilst they leave it idling on their drive because they nipped into the house to fetch something?

There's a difference between deciding or not to listen to a leak.... and actually pushing for leak.

I don't think it will leak before Christmas. IIRC, Super didn't leak until two or three days before release.

Speaking of Super, Drico reviewed it a month before release. I wonder if we'll get an early Drico review of Hotspot? He hasn't posted in a while.

Oh that would be nice

Although I'm very happy with Effen Vida's review.... as he is a fan of The way it used to be (so we align), and thinks most tracks on the new album are better than Dreamland (which I liked!) ... so promising!

EV's review is great. I guess when it comes to early reviews, the more the merrier!
