I'm just curious if I'm the only "Grandpa" here on Queenzone when I bring this up.

Given all the reviews, blogs, whatevers about the new album, is there anyone out there that's going to listen to it the old fashioned way? Listening to the single when it arrives and then waiting until the album is released to play it in album form? We don't have radio stations that play good new rock tracks where I'm at, by the way.

i'm gonna listen to it the old fashioned way, i'll buy the actual cd (or maybe cd with dvd version of the album). i'll buy it when it comes to my local cd shop and i won't downloaded it from torrent sites if it appears there first, i wanna hear it from the actual cd





I watched as fear took the old men's gaze

Hopes of the young in troubled graves

I see no day, I heard him say

So grey is the face of every mortal

Surely there's no "old fashioned" way of hearing it.

You either want to hear it as early as possible or you don't.

I took a CD player with me to the record shop in 1989 so I could listen to The Miracle on the way home instead of after I got there. (and I didn't see people running from the room at conventions when new tracks were premiered either - would you have?)

Actually, P_G, I disagree. I could have listened to a leaked copy, but would that be the final mix? Would it be an audio source that I would question?

Sticking a CD in my player, or vinyl on the turntable for that matter, is the "old-fashioned" way of listening to a new album.

Downloading, pirating leaked tracks, etc, all that stuff is hardly old fashioned.

So what are you going to do? Or have you already done it?

I list to leaked tracks. My curiosity always gets the better of me :)

I know 2 songs, SINT and C-leb... both for obvius reasons.

I´m driving me mad trying not to hear anything else till I got the Cosmos in my hands... and cd player. I´ts very hard I tell you...

Some of my friends say to me that I´m mad because they can´t understand why on earth I didn´t try to get the album in any way... because I can.

Well, I expected this for years... a couple of more weeks should be easy.

hehe.


Queen rocks!

Your lucky, you only have 11 more days. All of us over here in the states have to wait a month & 11 days.

No American has to wait, just buy the import.

I'll be downloading it asap, and listening to it immediately thereafter.

Given that 4 tracks are already available, I don't see this as being a tricky undertaking.
