is that it does bring back memories of the days when records didnt leak at all. anyone remember hearing the first few tracks of kid A played on the evening session, and then the first listen to the whole thing on the monday night after? that was wonderful. leaking also destroys the tuesday morning 'what do you think' discussions in playgrounds, workplaces and colleges/unis/whatevers around the country.
its nice for everyone to be able to hear something for the first time around the same time. stops bragging too. except for SOME PEOPLE.
