I'm happy to see that even though you've already heard the album, you're also going to purchase it. Everyone that downloaded the leak needs to have that mentality.
thank you melissa, thats for damn sure. but you and I both know that people who can get the album for free are going to refuse to buy it. I do it mainly in support of the band, and i dont want to get fucked if my hard drive crashes. haha.
i also understand the concept that for bands like the graduate, sound the alarm, etc... need to have really good album sales if i want to see them be placed on great tours. (even though the graduate has it pretty good right now, touring with bands like the fold, punchline, the audition, my american heart, and lets not forget some warped tour too.)
