I'm undecided. I have it downloaded but haven't decided yet whether to listen or just wait for a high quality version of it next week.

I've listened to this leak once and I won't touch it again until I can get hold of a 320kbps MP3/FLAC or the vinyl arrives. I liked what I heard and I'm even more excited about the album now.

I'm sure I can handle waiting one week. ;)

It's just one week. Seven days. Almost six now.

The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

Haven't listened to any of the officially released stuff so far or the leaked stuff bar a small bit of the best thing or whatever it is called (and the less said about that the better)

Taking an old fashioned approach of taking in the album as a collection of songs that are entirely new to me on release date.

That will stay the case until Dec 1st when i'll download the album from google play to my phone and if i like it i will then buy it...if i don't like it i won't buy it.

I'm waiting... I have read a couple track by track reviews and I am super excited cause it sounds like a good album...but I am waiting...

I have listened to the songs the released on Spotify (Best Thing, GOOYAW, American Soul) and heard Little Things in concert....so I really want to hold off to hear the album when I get the CD in hand.

The sound quality of the leak is poor and that won't help people's impression of the album.  If this recording starts spreading it might be better for them to bring the digital release of this album forward.

Yeah this is a whole other reason - the leak is obviously not how U2 intend for us to hear the album - i just feel like it would be counterproductive to listen to it if it's bad sound quality.

And it's only 6 days till we can hear this in pristine quality.  So this leak is only for the really impatient.

The issue is that song review threads are starting to populate the forum - I'm going to probably have to step back to avoid it until release date.

The sound quality is good enough for me.  There are some intricacies I'm looking forward to pick up Friday.  It will only enhances the amazing feels now
