    Default Is anyone surprised Chickenfoot's album hasn't leaked yet?

    I'm not advocating the sharing of illegal content protected by copyright law. But...

    Is anyone surprised the Chickenfoot album hasn't leaked yet? In this day and age with the release in a little more than three weeks it's a little strange there hasn't been more than a few reporting they've downloaded a leaked version.

    Maybe the band has this thing sealed up in an Internet-prone bubble? Does the exclusive Best Buy tie-in help?

    Discuss.

    (BTW, I'm a long-time lurker and intermittent poster who is digging the new Chickenfoot music A LOT! New music with a classic-rock flair: what's to complain about? Especially since it's GOOD.)

    I wonder that myself also, maybe so BB has it locked up tighter then a drum...I also wonder how the presales are with the band booking 6 months worth of shows later. Interesting indeed.

    Most albums only leak because the band wants it to. Its good Publicity (disguised as bad). It generates interest in the album etc. Notice how rarely ever do you hear of a band firing or prosecuting anyone inside their organization for an album being leaked? no, because they do it on purpose. The band knows once it is released it going to be all over the internet for free anyway, so who cares. So why not "leak it" and see how strong reactions are and see if they need to change their marketing strategy in anticipation of the actual launch.

    I'm surprised and more than a little disappointed. The new Wilco album isn't set to be released until June 30 and I already have it on my iPod. I'm DYING to hear the Chickenfoot album over and over and over again. I haven't been this excited for a new album since .....probably Balance.

    For the record, I will still buy the new Wilco disc on June 30. I vote for the kind of music I want to hear with my cash.

    I was talking to Belliot5150 yesterday, and he made a good point about how it can sometimes spoil a release for you to have MP3's of it too soon. Don't you want to hear it for the first time blasting in your car after leaving the record store?
    Actually, what makes me happy to wait is knowing from the 30 second clips that the best songs haven't been released yet. Don't get me wrong, if they came out I'd download them immediately, but I am buying the album on the release date regardless and it will sound much better then anyways.

    Ahhhhh....the good old days. Showing up at the record store waiting for it to open...hoping the punk working that day understands why he needs to open up those boxes in the back. "Huh...what album is being released today?" And then you wait for the little shit head to check the price list so he doesn't under charge you...but then things get good and you race for the car and pop the cassette in....then there was the awkward time period when CD's first came out and you had a CD player at home but not in the car so you had to do some stunt driving to get home and listen to it only to find your mom watching The Young and the Restless in the same room as the stereo and you had to wait some more. Of course now the CD player in the car issue is no longer a concern. Ahhhh....the memories.

    HA! I'm with you jetguy - I have the same memories. When OU812 came out, my parents' car didn't have a cassette deck so I had to race home anyway. Admittedly, I haven't been waiting for the CD store to open for any release since Balance.

    Hell, at first I was surprised that 5 tracks have made it out, but after thinking about it, since this is a new group (with established musicians), it makes perfect sense. Personally, what I really question is the June release date for the album...should have been at the beginning of this month, at the latest.

    I've had the CD for just about a week as I work at Best Buy corporate headquarters (as you know, we're distributing the CD exclusively). It's weird being a long time VH and Satch fan and having the place I work afford me the opportunity to listen to one of my most anticipated CDs early. I consider myself very lucky to be rockin' out to the record to and from work everyday. It is truly a great collection of tunes. I'd say 1/3 of the album is off the charts great, the next 1/3 is very good and the last 1/3 is OK. For me, being able to say that I don't dislike any song is a big deal. In general, no song skipping. The song that I can't listen to enough is Sexy Little Thing (followed closely by Get It Up). Those two songs just feel like the VH music that we've been missing since '95. Anyway, it's a great record and it will definitely be worth the wait...
