Hold it, you don't every download from blogs, or um from other people when they have a link?

Yes, yes you do.

You skipped the last part: "However I understand your point about bands we love and want to support."

Ok I've read this whole thread and my opinion is this. I think people are starting to feel it's business as usual to download leaks before release dates. I admit to doing it myself. I'm not going to get pissed if I get beat to the punch by a band (Martin and co.) who have figured out they can get it out there for sale before it's leaked. I think power to him!! If people want to pout about that, wait a few days and I'm sure it'll be available on your peer to peer. Duh. The thing will eventually be available in many formats, vinyl, cd, and mp3. It's your choice. If anyone's saying a band should not make their work available on itunes and, etc, it's absurd. It's another format to choose. So fucking what if it's available as mp3 first before the other formats which go through the more traditional channels of distribution.

Actually, it's not a matter of being angry because of being "beat to the punch." I don't think albums should be leaked at all. This should have been provided as a free download to those who preorder the actual CD or vinyl. It is unfair to those who are unwilling to accept mp3 as the main format.
