Let us know in the comments. Remember, the record hits stores on May 14th and you can pre-order it via iTunes here.
It's 2013 and no one that wasn't supposed to have our record got it until we mailed them out. It's shocking and really a nice feeling that a bond of mutual respect with everyone who had the press stream kept the album where it belonged.

Now, the record is streaming so you can listen guilt free. Like I said,...
