Will the live stream be available in the UK too, and if so, what time?

Breathe! Have you listened to it yet?


Of course I have. The ONLY thing I'll say is that it wasn't worth the 12 year wait (for me, anyway) and it definitely sounds like a b-side. It's a decent song overall, but definitely b-side.

What was your impression of the 1 minute preview? Or did you miss that and was the full song your first impression?

I think in the UK you can watch it, unless Youtube has some weird region-blocking policies regarding live streams. In terms of time, they stated 7:50 PM PST, which makes it 3:50 AM for those in the UK?

I heard the preview once, so I didn't really put much thought into it, so basically the full song was my first impression. It sounds more like Mayfield Four instead of AB, so that may appeal to some of you.

How long was it by the way? Like a 3 minute or so song?

Watch Your Words is probably a top 5 AB track for me. Dead serious. That song is beautiful.

Compared to the rest of ODR that is somewhat on the short side, but it's close to the fairly common track lengths for AB. Thanks for giving us this information. I'm still really looking forward to hearing it!

I always thought UK time was eight hours ahead of Pacific Time, no?

I wonder how many of us have actually listened to AB since day one. I can remember going to Walmart on my 30 minute lunch break that day in August '04 and instantly falling in love with Metalingus before having to go back to work.

Ok I usually agree, but you're going to get on someone for talking about a CD he/she preordered and received legitimately? People receive their pre orders early literally every album cycle. That's a tad much in my irrelevant opinion. I mean it's not my forum, so rules are rules, but jeez.

I find it slightly sad that many are looking forward to Breathe the most. Kinda writing off TLH before we've heard it in its entirety :( Don't get me wrong, I can't wait to hear it either, but not as much as the new album. It's like the cherry on top of a new cake.

I apologize for breaking the rules earlier - I obviously didn't read them through entirely. Anyway, can't wait til Friday!
