The Bootleggers Strike Again...




Gnarls Barkley is the latest music industry victim of wide-spread leaking/bootlegging that has significantly affected a release date. According to Billboard.com, The Odd Couple LP, originally scheduled for an April 1st release date, is now being immediately released to iTunes and physical copies will be O.K.'d for sale when they arrive in stores beginning today.

As someone that loves music, I am curious as to why you illegally download? I can admit to occasional downloading, but I rarely download a complete album. Is it all about getting it for free or is it the insatiable access to new music at any time? I still buy albums by artists with music I truly respect. That being said, I will be copping that Gnarls - If you didn't check out the first album, St. Elsewhere, you are missing out.

Please Comment !!! Why do you download?
