Great album thus far. Can someone answer for me why bands will stream their entire album online for free before the release? It just seems like they are creating opportunities for people to record the stream and not pay for the album. It doesn't make sense? Before the internetz people waited until an album came out before they were able to hear the entire thing and it incensed people to actually pay for the album.

My guess is because the album leaked, so people are going to hear it anyway. So their label decides to stream it.
That is what I've noticed a lot lately when an album leaks.
