    When you first tear open the shrinkwrap, open the case and pop in the CD (after smelling that new CD smell, of course), how are you going to listen to Paradise Lost for the first time? What are you going to be doing? Where are you going to listen to it? I've never anticipated an album as highly as PL before, so it has to be a great moment... but I'm not quite sure what I'll do yet :)

    I'll probably first listen to it in the car. Then I'll rip it the computer and listen to every time on it.

    Nice thread btw.

    I hope to be listening to it in the car while on my honeymoon. Hope it's out by then.

    Step 1: Unwrap cd
    Step 2: Sit for five or so minutes trying to comprehend the fact that it's finally done
    Step 3: Put it in my computer; Upload it to my itunes
    Step 4: Play the album
    Step 5: make Live Human Sacrifices to the gods of Metal
    Step 6: Repeat from Step 4

    well, i guess it's a good sign that we're all assuming we'll still be using CD's when the album finally comes out.






    before i get crucified.....JUST KIDDING

    I will probably die on the way home on the bus out of town, knowing I have it in my hands but can't listen to it (though I'll probably rip off the plastic and look at the liner notes...)

    Then I'll get home, chuck it in my cd player in my room, crank it up, and just lie on my bed and listen to the whole thing right through... it shall be bliss...

    I'll probably do the same thing, except for step 5. I'll sacrifice whole emo bands instead.

    I will listen to it all the way (with lyrics) through my stereo, as I do with all of the cds I buy.

    I'll put it on while making love to the most gorgeous woman I can find on the day. And then when my paradise is lost i'll put it on again........if my head not aspl0d3.

    :) I'm gonna try a way of listening to a new album that I've never tried before:

    I'll listen to the first 10-20 seconds of each song, just to give me more anticipation/nearly drive me insane.
    Then each day, I'll rip one song to my itunes and ipod, and I'll listen to it as much as I want, as well as all the songs from the previous days.
    After I'm done that with the whole album, I'll listen to the album all the way through. I'll probably be sitting in bed eating cookies or chips and drinking some kind of fruit juice (I love apple juice). Or maybe if it's in August or later (probably won't), I'll be drinking beer cause I'll be 19!:kickass:

    Yeah, I think that'll make each song have a special place in my heart.:worship: It'll be hard not to give in and listen to the whole album before the appointed time though. It'll be the ultimate resistance test.

    :lol: good one..

    i will first maybe avoid the forum for 2/3 weeks till it arrives in the mail so that im not cast into a deep depression of envy over how everyone else on the board has it before i do..

    then i will hug and kiss it, the same way i do every cd/dvd i get that i have really anticipated..

    then i will listen to it on my stereo, then upload to the comp and if i have a new usb cable for my ipod by then (lets hope i do), ill put it on the ipod and probably spend time just laying down somewhere quiet and listening to it..
