I looked every day also. Found a site that previewed 30 second clips but you could choose any part of the song. Clipped em all together. spent like 4 hours yesterday doing it hahah. So when I say it leaked, it didn't really, but I have the whole album.
you gotta understand I'm a massive coheed fan. order number 10007 for the deluxe set.
Also calling bullshit on this because "on par with SSTB"... I'm sure it will be great but lets not get carried away here...
I love SSTB. From a foundational standpoint I don't think any other album compares. Overall though, Ascension is an evolution, and a damn good one. I think there are enough memorable moments to warrant it being on the same level, at least in my opinion. It does not touch IKS/GA1 though.. maybe Descension will change that. I want to hear Gravity's Union..
