Hi there non-listeners!
I though that we should have place where we can talk about our feelings while we are not going to listen RAFRAG before buying it. So how do you feel about that?
I heard Hammerhead and Half-Truism on 6th may. I hope that the rest of songs will be at least as good as these.

Ps. Sorry for mistakes.

Oh fuck, I was gonna start this thread. You were first :D
So all the non-listeners unite! I only heard the first 4 tracks and I'm not gonna change it until the 16th.
Let's stay the hell away from "omg nothingtown is teh shitz" for this week! :p

I think it sounds fucking stupid.
It has never taken so long for the band to produce an album. We have waited 5 years. Why postpone it another couple of days if they let us listen for free.

Its like when the actual record comes out, im going to wait another week before i actually play the record. Ive waited 5 years. I can wait another week just for fun.

Moronic.

It's not just for fun. It's for the feeling when you have the cd in your hands when you buy it and put it in your cd-player for the very first time. I'm not sure if you understand.

It's also about patience. It'll be fucking hard this week.

Don't discuss if you are NOT non-listener and you don't understand us! We want to listen it with CD rom in our stereo! I feel difference beetween listening to the mp3 and listening to original record, reading lyrics etc...

Exactly. The feeling is so much better when you hear all the songs fresh from the CD! It would just ruin it to listen to plain mp3's on some radiostation.

That wasn't my point if you buy or not buy the record.
But believe me, the excitement is 100% more intense when you have the physical thing in your hands.
Dammit, where are all the fucks which wanted to listen to it on the official released date? C'mon, there are more of you, I'm not good at arguments:p

Totally agree! i remember emotions when i bought Splinter. I opened box and i was shocked! I was affraid that the record is broken because of scratches on it! :D Later i realised that its just graphic... :D

RAFRAG - 15$, listening it for the first time using cd - priceless ;)

Do you remember how did you listen to your 1st Offspring album for the 1st time? 2nd Offspring album? all of the Offspring albums? And you will remember that you listened RAFRAG for the 1st time on PC from band's official stream, then download some rips and listen to them or you could wait for CD and remember how you've been waiting for RAFRAG for a week longer but the first impression wasn't messed up by bad quality or cheap youtube watching or whatever. Your call. That's the difference, for someone it's big, for another it's little.

Amiralanal and 6661., I don't want to sound rude or anything, but would you please shut up?

What's the problem of us not listening to the tracks before the CD comes out? We all gave planty reasons why we don't want to listen. We've all respected your opinios about listening to the CD today or the leaks. Come on, can't we have our preferences?

Yeah. I already heard the first 4 tracks before though, in various versions, so I might give them a listen if I don't resist. But that suits it for me, from "A Lot Like Me" til "Rise And Fall", no listening.
6661 is really provoking us, btw. Give us proof you creamed your pants!

Give in and listen. It's the same you will get with the CD maybe even better. It is perfect quality, amazing music, new Offspring. You can't ask for much more, stop testing yourself and give in to it. It's not a sin I swear.
How old are you? Cannot you respect our preferences as Camilamazed said? We have no doubt that these songs are amazing! But WE DON'T WANT to listen it. So leave us alone (or behind if you wish :P).

The stream is in stereo. The booklet? All about the music for me, which is why I'm enjoying this so much. But I can say, you have a treat coming when you do actually listen to the CD, because it rocks.

Nothingtown is really catchy, and has a nice bass tune

Stuff is messed up... WOW, is pretty cool, listen to dexter singing pretty fast

Oficially fix you is pretty soft

Let's hear from rock bottom is kinda reggae- not lame like worst hangover ever- and is pretty catchy

sarcasm :D just wanted to see your reaction ;)

but there is a part that's true in my statement..

it's great, there are great songs. For me, after a few songs it gets really boring and starts to sound too much like green day.

I 'm a fan since 1998 and I can say this album is really dissapointing for me.

Anyway, that's just my opinion :p

I think many girls at the age of 13 will like it, and the album will get TO back on the map..
But I'm not a fan of this album...
I think it's great they're going into new musical-directions, but in my opinion they failed.

Yeah I know I'd better go to the Whining thread ;)
Girls at the age of 13? Uh, wtf?
98% of the fans in this forum LOVES the new album. It has some good old-ish songs, some new stuff, some of it is HARD and punk rock, some of it is soft, but all of it is THE OFFSPRING. This album is great.

p.s.: already heard hammerhead as "premiere" at kroq. that was awesome. and half-truism live, part of trust in you.

"It's not something amazing or anything" - I think that's kind of the point, to get into that special mood or atmosphere where the music will feel more amazing. For example, I love to listen to cd's for the first time while focusing on the music 100% and reading through the lyrics booklet.

Another thing I enjoy doing is taking a peaceful walk with my iPod and the music there with me. I find it hard to concentrate on music if I surf the web or am doing something else while listening to music for the first time.

And wtf is wrong with wanting to decide for yourself how you listen to some music? It's our choice, after all. Hell, I could wait a year to listen to this album if I chose so (I doubt I'll be largely exposed to all the songs on it).

I think a lot of it's got to do with the anti-instant gratification idea. When you buy a CD, you can't listen to it straight away. The anticipation of travelling with the music to your home and then getting to hear it is all a part of the experience.

Camilamazed
06-10-2008, 03:07 PM
Thanks, Vera.

If you don't know how it feels to wait till you have the CD I'm very sorry for you. Internet can be great, but when it comes to music it is not so nice for me.

I grew up waiting desperately to get a brand-new CD and stuff, so I really know how it feels.

And I do not regret. I did the same with Alanis's newest and was teh best desicion I had. I guess it will be exactly the smae when I get my RAFRAG.

It's not that hard after all. I have a Hammerhead video to keep busy my mind with. And it's our self-esteem and respect to the band (especially for showing some respect to us with non-mainstream single) that makes us wait for cd. That's the way we love The Offspring, the band doesn't mind to share their music with us for free, but we don't want to remember RAFRAG premiere as sitting in front of monitor and reading some bitching about how shitty the hammerhead video is or whatever.

I don't know. I would download the Amazon dl and then buy the CD once it becomes cheaper but the dl is for only US citizens so I basically have no legal means of getting the full album and I don't like streaming music online (except online radio). For me it's more a decision to obtain it legally (and not do the "download + buy later" thing I sometimes do), and desire to hear it for the first time once I have legally obtained a copy.

I have a huge desire to listen to it, of course, but if I avoid this particular forum or its on-topic parts it's not so bad. I'll catch up with you guys come next Wednesday. :]

To me, there's very few things as amazing as music:) I've only heard the studio version of Hammerhead once, and the live (bad quality) version of Half-Truism a couple times, and that's it. Only 6 days to go....

I can't avoid the forum. It's second nature to type it as soon as I come online.
I will wait. I've tried to not even look at my Offspring playlist to keep my mind off of it, but I failed that miserably. I bought a Sum 41 DVD with some extra cash I had and tried to distract myself with that but it's not working, either. Eventually I'll go to my friend's house (she has high-speed internet, unlike myself) and listen to the songs.
Self-control is hard. I never noticed that before.

Pre-ordered the album on amazon.com 2 weeks ago, and after recieved the mail saying that my cd was sent on 15th June and approximate arriving time will be 3rd July... I live in Europe, not North Pole so I find that shipment time very unacceptable. Not another 2 weeks.
I hope none of you would have the same experience as me!!!
