Well, sure - I'm just asking if you can shed light on how that works in a general sense. I'm surprised any band is allowed to sell the same product on a different site. Is that common?

Can you explain how that works? How does the band have the ability to sell different options? Does the revenue share change? Are they required to promote one or both?

Basically, I have questions.

What's with the dual pre-order pages with different options? Same thing happened with Anberlin.

Geeking out at how cool this is, social-media-wise.

And the song's badass.

I wonder what the reasoning could have been. Initial reaction is always vinyl, but I believe the band had already said vinyl may come after release.

Very odd, but nothing with change my excitement...

I've enjoyed all the songs. I think within the context of the full record, they'll grow even more.

Beats were originally marketed as a high-quality headphone. Regardless of whether it was true or not, that's how they were marketed. So yes, people bought Beats because 1. they were/are trendy/cool,...

I completely agree with your assessment of their product - like I said, I don't have a pair, and I would never buy a pair.

But your second sentence is exactly my point. Pre-Beats, normal music...

Regardless of the press release, you have to assume this is about buying the brand name and the product - the programs and services are duds.

This song's cool, but it didn't completely win me over. That said, it did show elements I was hoping to hear - I'm assuming I'll really enjoy everything else that comes out of this.

Dammit, it's on a Thursday. Grown up Jack can't skip work for this. I'll stick to Nokia and watch Instagram photos of the blood and bruises and chaos of the Chain show.
