That's a nice one - thanks. Reads more like a 5/5.

Hi people, I've never posted on here before, but I just wanted to make clear that the record has leaked, it's out there. I'm not sure if I can post the link which says where it is, so I won't do it.
But with a bit of search you can surely find out on the web.
Enjoy!

P.S.: I swear this is not fake. Just use the right words on the search engine, you'll find it.

Reviews are looking very promising. And I agree Neal Zeal, the independent review in particular reads like a 5/5. Seems like reviewers these days are hesitant to go further than 8/10 or 4/5, perhaps I’m wrong. And perhaps 8/10 is what this album is. Based on the snippets I feel like this will be a 9/10 album for me… sounding like a real masterpiece and one of damon’s best records ever, not to mention best of the decade. But tomorrow (and time) will tell! Can’t wait!

Also, I’m hoping a similar snippet strategy will be used for future damon projects. I prefer it to getting 4 or 5 entire tracks before the album is even released. It’s really built my excitement up!

Since it’s the last day to do rankings based on snippets, wanted to throw in mine so I can see how hearing them in full changes things.

1. The Poison Tree
2. Ribbons
3. Lady Boston
4. The Truce of Twilight (this sounds like single material)
5. 1917
6. The Great Fire
7. Drifters & Trawlers
8. Gun to the Head
9. Merrie Land
10. The Last Man to Leave

The only song I’m lukewarm on is The Last Man to Leave. The rest all sound so stunning, and both Gun to the Head and Merrie Land have been growing on me ever since I’ve first listened to them.

I’m trying with all my might not to download the leak, but this big pile of paperwork might just be a bit less painful with some heavenly music playing over it.

I’ll just say one thing... “The Poison Tree” is beautiful.
