Are there any albums you made SURE you got on the day of release?

Explained by astral_queen...

There are a few for me that I distinctly remember: Radiohead's "In Rainbows" and "the King of Limbs"; Kings of Leon's "Come Around Sundown", Green Day's "American Idiot"; and a few Lana Del Rey albums. How about you?

Pretty much what Howler said, except the first Boston Album.

LOL, I'm shocking myself, I never realized that until you posted this question. I have friends in the music industry, so I always had the opportunity to listen to albums before I bought them. I never had to run out and get them the day it was available to the public.

I didn't have it when it was first released, but a lot of people bought this one.

Which makes me now ask, how do artists make money if all of their songs are free to listen to as long as you have internet?

The ins and outs of the whole situation seem p complex from my uneducated perspective. I guess adverts and going on tour generate loads of revenue...?

Metallica’s “Load”, Slipknot’s “Iowa”, Machine Head’s “Blackening”. Probably up until about 6 years ago I was always getting albums by my favorites on release day. No need with Spotify.

I’m addicted to building playlists. I think the one I’m most proud of is my playlist of songs used in 80’s movie montages.

Oh it’s epic. And I have some holiday specific playlists too. It’s like being back in high school and killing time during class because writing out a list of songs is how I would pass the time lol.

Not on the actual release day, but I bought every Bealle album as soon as I could get to the record store on my bike (I didn't have my first car yet).
