  • I'm ignoring all leaks until the release date.
    I just hope that album versions are not that different from live ones!

    It is, remember? Like when you heard the entire album?  :-*

  • It's ok: You listened to the press stream privately. You heard the album preview. Big deal right?
    Nothing was recorded. Nothing leaked. No files were exchanged. Simply said: it didn't cause a leak of any kind.

  • I know so. The leak originates from somebody else who obviously does not understand watermarking and how it can lead straight back to his source or himself.

    I will listen to my (Legal) LQ stream until Sep. And then I can download the 24 bit wavs until the box arrives in Nov.

  • I think a thread about leaks should be moderated off an official band's page to begin with.
    It's like spitting in their face.

    @Vesper haha, exactly why I never listen to live versions before the studio ones.


    I think that's just stupid and backwards.




    Well most of us aren't shallow liars and take advantage of someone just so they could listen to a stream of the album. That worked out well for you anyway, I was just stupid enough to listen to it live first, stupid twat that I am , what the.fuck was I thinking.

    Take advantage? What the hell are you even on about? Get your facts straight, you little gossiper. LOL




    Meh! Alan baby, please stop embarrassing yourself it's like watching a clown car crash . I've said to your face not behind your back, gossiping is behind someone's back . You lied (and you admitted it on the forum) and if you lie to someone for gain, you.have automatically taken advantage of them (their good nature, gullibility, naivety or whatever) , a posted redundancy on my behalf but true nonetheless

    Anyway the albums leaking, I feel sorry for the band, I expect some more tidbits to officially come out
    , well hope anyway. Photo set, fingers crossed for something to set the visual mood.

    The leak has either been tempered with or they decided to go for a last minute (over)compressed sound which I find hard to believe.

    On your left: The waveform from the official (!) Alvar press preview. It sounds perfect in it's build-up and sound levels and in relative volume to the rest of the stream.

    On your right: The 320kbps mp3 leak of Alvar. The waveform is compressed. The result? It sounds much louder overall and hardly any differences between the more quiet parts of the song remain, leading up to the final build up, meaning it was altered compared to the earlier preview when at this stage mastering should long have been completed.

    I smell fish.

  • Even though they are not originals or transcoded from 128 to 320, essentially it's still the same song.

    Sure, the quality is not gonna satisfy the audiophiles nor will the leaked files replace the original album for us, but a leak is a leak, it served its purpose.

    The con: surprise and anticipation are no more.

    But I still look forward to September 9th. ;)

    Thanks, everyone. :)

  • Trust me Alan: they have been compressed to death and Drew is the video version of the song and not the album version. So this leak is compiled, reprocessed, remastered, botched mastering, dynamic compression set so high it plays back loud on all levels where it should not and it's a shame IF it had to leak that this is the first impression people get of an album that sounds so much better.
