I will admit pre-orders could be better and arguably I loved the album (probably my second favorite SA album). I think the problem is too much emphasis is put on the digital product these days. The physical pre-orders carried 1 unique thing and that is the Flag. That I did want so I went for. They do have a CD with a bonus track but does not really change much cause a Japanese or UK release of the album is likely to have the bonus tracks as well. I wish the pre-orders made a bit more sense (especially with the leak) regardless of the majority opinion of the album so far.
Fair play man, i'm not going to be THAT guy who tries to get his opinion forced on other people. Heck, my favourite Say Anything album is 'In Defense of the Genre'. I just think it's entirely unprofessional that no one has acted upon this and it's clearly going to affect sales.
I was really stoked when I first heard "Burn a Miracle" but, after downloading the album, I just can't get into it. It just seems forced. "Admit it Again" started out incredible but it became something awful.
