Just curious?

I think people were saying on here just recently that they had Schism like 2 months in advance. I think it did leak.

Yeah, it leaked 3 weeks early, I think I read.

*see*you*auntie*
04-20-2006, 01:56 PM
Definitely. I had it well in advance of the official release.

And just for the anti-downloading establishment, yes, I did buy it.....two copies.

why would you buy the album twice?
I understand that you're a big tool fan (so am I), but I don't see the point in buying the album twice?? (just curious...)

Lateralus leaked 8 days early. Schism leaked a few days before radio release.

Internet downloads and albums leaking wasn't that big of an issue in 2001 compared to what it is now. And still Lateralus leaked.

This is quite incorrect.

agree'd

and downloading was a big thing just 5 years ago too, lol, not just because you wernt involved in it at the time ;)

the album leaked at least a month before it was in stores. I remember this because i was in summer school and was listening to the new tool. and what was the release date for it, in late augest/early sept i think

it leaked very very early

10,000 days didn't leak early compaired to that

Lateralus leaked 8 days early. Schism leaked a few days before radio release.

Lateralus leaked on DALNet (#cmp3 i think) nearly a month before it was released if I remember. It may have been leaked even sooner. The encoding wasn't that great though; I remember that the transitions between songs (like parabol and parabola) didn't sound quite right. I remember there was a big fiasco the day it leaked there, because they only made the first 7 tracks available the first time they released it to the general members of the room.
These days, leaks start in private torrent tracker groups. In 2001, it was all about seeding Napster using iRC.

Lateralus was released on May 15, 2001. About a month or so sound right, but I think it was closer to 2 months for iRC, I'll have to check the date on my original leak when I get home today.
I think anything within 20 days is pretty much a sucess in the days when everyone has high speed connections, and knows how to use torrenting programs.

Until one of you can come up with *something* to substantiate your month-early leak claims, the answer is that it leaked 8 days before its US release.

FTP was more in use those days then iRC in my eyes. iRc is still used today but long gone is napster

edit: I may be confusing this with the Radiohead "Kid A" leak, which a month before the release. While they were released nearly 8 months apart, that was my freshman year in college, so a lot was pretty hazy...
Anyways, I don't claim this to be fact, but I got this from the forum archive...It may shed some light on the situation...
--------------------------
Lateralus leaked a slight few nights before it was officially released ... I was on mIRC while ** was leaking it with a handful of you I'm sure [**] ... half the album one night, the last half the next. It was killer, stopping on Parabola, with Kabir claiming, "Track 9 is the most intense Tool song I've ever heard ... better than Flood." Talk about a long 24 hours...
--------------------------
I do remember the album being leaked in 2 peices. I guess the theory about 8 days is probably right. Plus, Kabir posted that info on the 7th of May.

Oh, that's right! There use to be a share/leach ratio on a lot of those servers, and such. I remember those days...iRC was still pretty big, though. Or at least for me; a lot of the music I used to get back then came off those networks, because a lot of the groups that released the first leaks were members of a handful of channels.

8 days is correct. no need to look any further.

For anyone who posted on this board 5 years ago...

What was the reaction from fans when it leaked? Were there as many negative reactions as there is for this album?

insaner
04-21-2006, 04:54 PM
i didnt post on the message board here, but i did on alt.music.tool and there were of course mixed reactions. people who say tool probably laugh at all this shouldnt be so jaded. im sure they are more than happy and humbled that people would care enough to get this crazy about it.

lateralus did leak only a few days before retail....and it was leaked in 2 pieces.....tracks 1-5 (i think) then a day or so later the rest came out. I cant remember the details, but I think someone claimed kibur was responsible for it.

the PMS release was the first 'scene' release, but the tracks were flying around efnet (and soon other places) long before that.

We spread around the first rip of this AMAZING new ޲
CD early this week; now we're proud to bring you the ޲
FULL RETAIL high quality rip. If you feel the need ޲
to hate just check out the enclosed cd cover proof. ޲
޲
Gotta give credit where it's due though: HUGE thanks ޲
to vulgar for pointing us in the right direction. ޲
Oh, just so you all know, this cd came from Israel, ޲
from a special member of Team Q. ON THE MAP NOW YO? ޲
Anyway, heres the point: IF YOU LISTEN TO THIS CD ޲
YOU *MUST* GO AND BUY IT ON THE 14th/15th/WHENEVER! ޲
This has to be one of the most incredible albums ޲
ever recorded and the band deserves to be paid for ޲
every single track on it. ޲
޲
Oh yeah, before someone decides to bitch about track ޲
9 being named 'incorrectly', it seems the title is ޲
actually 'Lateralis'. Check the cover if you must. ޲
޲
OK, time for the pRoPz list: big shouts to vulgar, ޲
bq, corny, zr, gone, fusq, mav, hurlay, ions, popo, ޲
sic, johnl, rocksolid, pokey, nnitro, kilroy, #pms, ޲
you crazy ksi guys, the mp3hq crew, #eXl studz, and ޲
OF COURSE, the ENTIRE #cdz gang :D ޲
޲
Well this nfo went on long enough. Start listening ޲
now and put the damn thing on repeat, it's the best ޲
cd you'll hear for the next 10 years. ޲
޲
- TEAM Q of PMS ޲
