    If someone, somehow gets a hold of the new music, or as soon as it is released, and puts it up on Napster, how many of you would be tempted to download it without waiting for the release? Do you plan on buying it as well? I, for one, would probably be tempted to download it and buy it as soon as it comes out.

    That would be "on the fly" thing for me downloading it from napster. I guess I support it if that's what your'e saying. It would be a given me buying it so they wouldn't be losing any money from me.

    I've definitely given this some thought. I love the whole experience of buying the CD and checking out the booklet while I listen to it for the first time. But if it comes up on Napster before it's released, I don't think I'd be able to hold out, I'd have to hear it. Especially because there would be people here talking about the new songs, and that would drive me over the edge for sure.

    But no matter what, I'll be buying the album the day it is released.

    I would download the whole thing, listen to it day and night, and then delete them after I buy the album the day it is released.

    Glenn,
    I agree with you. I haven't been excited about buying new music in a long time. And this defintely qualifies as one of those "experiences".

    I would have to hear it from Napster, no way I could wait. But regardless I am buying the album the day it comes out

    In fact, I will probably buy it at the Midnight Madness Sale a local record store offers the night before big new releases come out!

    Honestly, in this case, I would NOT d/l from Napster. I would not support (by having those songs available on my hard drive) other people taking away from what van halen has produced. I'm not at all trying to pull a holier than thou thing here really. I just feel that out of respect for what vh has contributed to me and my life with music, it would be in bad taste for me to do something like that. Hey, its just me. I download all sorts of shit from Napster. And Bootlegs? Oh yeah Thats not gonna stop at all.

    The other part about cd vs. Napster is that I totally enjoy the whole routine of purchasing a =VH= cd (I wish we could have the possibility a little more often). I like the anticipation prior to the purchase and during the ride to Tower Records in the car, finding it on the rack (like it just has some sort of glow to it), finalizing the purchase (now it is MINE!), waiting to get home and put it in. First time I play it will be just all the way through, with no interuptions. Second will be rewinding certain parts to try and comprehend just exactly what the fuck happened at a particular spot and analyse what eddies fingers are doing. Third time, I repeat the favorites I have aquired. I will also be checking out the cd cover, back, pics, linear notes etc..

    I like this routine, and I wont give it up for the price of free off Napster. Thats for myself mostly, and secondly out of respect for the band and what they have given me.

    Thats just me.

    Im gonna attempt the Seenbad route myself... get the whole experience. It'll probably be easier for me as the album will arrive here several hours before the US (at least thats the normal routine), so the songs will only JUST be hitting napster by the time (unless theres a leak)

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I agree with what you and Seenbad are saying, but I was talking about if it leaks say a week or two early. If it's one day, I can hold out, but if leaks a week early, and there's a weeks worth of topics here about what a great song "A" is and how "B" reminds people of Runnin' With the Devil, I won't be able to wait.

    It's going to be damn difficult to resist the urge to grab what little snippets I can before the album comes out.

    Ideally, I want to pick it up at the store, then scurry home to a dark room and just listen. Unfortunately, I think y'all are gonna ruin that little experience for me. I'll know the names of all the songs before I get the CD, and probably a bit about each and every one.

    It's tempting to go on a little hiatus once we have some firm dates!

    That would make it tough for sure. I got some doubts wether its gonna happen though.. Im sure given the veil of secrecy they have happening, they'll be able to keep the album under lockdown until the final few days

    Hahahahaha, you guys are hilarious. After all that's gone on here in the last few months, everyone badgering everyone else for any kind of scrap of information. I'll bet within 15 minutes after the first release is announced Napster's gonna be flooded, but you guys'll sit back and wait? That's a good one.

    If its a simultaneous world wide release (as most albums are now).. It'll be a foot race between the east-coast aussies to get to the record shop and back and post "I GOT IT' first in main. Unless some sneaky New Zealander gets in first! Damn their feathery hides!

    And Tribb... LOL... we can try and kid ourselfves, but theres no kidding the Tribbman
