How can we review the album now, when the album is not yet and only a few sources (those at the listening party, and other media sources.) has heard it?

No. I don't want to take anything away from the people who prefer not to be spoiled. And nothing beats a busy TABN when the album is legally released. If we all reviewed the album right here, there wouldn't be much for the people who didn't manage to obtain it to judge.

So I got the Best Buy link to work. They limited me to 3 copies for preorder though so I had to do 2 orders of 3. No biggie. Now I just hope they don't cancel one. I've already promised 5 people overseas I'd get them a copy and ship it out. :/

I strongly encourage for everyone to read my posts with that reaction in mind.

It's a lot of work to make a separate section of the forum and add people one by one to have access. More work than I want to put in. Got enough on my plate. Y'all can wait a few more weeks.

So we poofed some posts.

For now, we'd like for you all to refrain from talking about that thing we all know happened.

We're going to consider the BCD thing and see if any members of our team have the bandwith to take that on/set up permissions for it, etc.

In the mean time, the album is out in a few weeks and those other things people suggested before posts got poofed are probably an okay idea :-) Thanks for your help guys. You're a huge part in allowing casual fans to find this band and purchase their music to show Alter Bridge that they can be successful in any market.

We're the best man. I just can't pat myself on the back enough. Myles should come to my birthday party.

You could have edited my posts and left the whole "I did not look at reviews, loudwire streams, did not listen to previews/singles, so that I can form my honest opinion on the Fortress album after I bought it and it was worth it in the end." Everything else, I was fine with that being deleted.

Ashlee can I have mod powers because your post comes across as against AB23's rules.

As you can imagine - it wasn't practical to go through and edit posts in their entirety.

I'm actually on your side on this one - but I'd be less inclined to reward sarcasm with a BCD forum. :-)
