"Can you see them riding. Riding next to you!"
I plan to listen with headphones late at night when I have time to myself.
…unless you’ve already pre-ordered the album, in which case you’ve “stolen” nothing.If you're listening to a leak you're intentionally stealing from the band.
So are Spotify-only listeners not real fans then, since the streaming revenue is a pittance compared to record sales?Unless you're actually paying for their music then you've got no right to call yourself a Maiden fan.
I think it is a given that we have all pre-ordered the album. The obsession with maiden in this forum is next levelAfter work, with beer and headphones. But I will probably also listen to leak if quality will be ok. I have preorders so band have my money for more that one copy already.
It's been more than 20 years since the Napster days with low quality 128kbps mp3. For many years now, leaks are at least 320kbps, as well as lossless FLAC, and even hi res 24/96.
Born in '81 so I'm technically a millennial. I'm from the last gen who grew up with the concept of buying and owning music. Zoomers grew up in a world where all music was free and easy to acquire online and therefore place little real value on it and expect it all to be made free and available to them. Hence why some people see no issue with pirating.No skin off my nose, I still buy CDs and rip them. But it sounds like the millennials and zoomers may be due for excommunication if we follow your rule…
for TBOS i sat in a dark room with my headphones on, think i used the CD for that as I still had a disk drive
I use Sony WH-1000XM3. Can't go wrong with Bose Quiet Comfort 35 II or SonyI definitely prefer to listen to new music in my headphones. However, my headphones are very cheap, so I want to invest in some which are suited for heavy metal and rock in general, but I have no clue what to buy. Can anyone please recommend me a good pair at a decent price?
