    I wonder why we're getting the mp3 downloads on the 14th if we're also getting the physical on or earlier. This leads me to believe that us preorderers will actually get the physical sent to us after....which is ridiculous since the whole point of preordering is to get it earlier or the day of.

    Well the thing is, anytime you do an mp3 its compressed and saved to a "lossy" format. When you do it as FLAC, its "lossless" and a direct and exact CD rip. Some people don't notice the difference, but audiophiles will.

    i wouldn't worry. I think they're just emailing the MP3's in case if something goes horribly wrong with your delivery. Just think of it as insurance. You will get your CD on the 14th, don't worry :)

    I won't be listening to the clips. The band have been a certain emphasis with it being an album, so fourteen other thirty seconds clips wouldn't judge the work properly. Besides, I have school to worry about. Time will pass just fine for me.

    Don't care for the clips, don't care for the download that'll come out of my crappy headphones, unless the CDs are coming late. I want my real CD and pop it into the stereo, and i want that to be my first listen.

    As a non-audiophile, 320 is good enough.

    I've said this before, but for those that pre-ordered, shouldn't we get it the 13th?

    no. at the earliest, the tracks will come at midnight, most likely, since now the site says on the 14th instead of on or before.

    That's only a possibility. It says on or before. I'm sure a few lucky people will happen to get it on the 13th. I wouldn't get your hopes up.

    I also won't be listening to the preview clips. I think The Catalyst clips sort of ruined the surprise for me. I'll be reading the reviews though, its good for a few laughs.

    I don't even notice the difference between 128 and 320.

    I'm not talking about the digital release, I'm talking about the actual disc. Retailers get CD's a day or two before they're actually released, and get them on a ground shipment, so I'm sure a some lucky people will get the actual disc on the 13th in the US.
