You don't get many of those these days. I remember when you used to get loads. One album my friend had, you had to put the CD on and then rewind track one to get to the secret track.

I hate it. I've started collecting Pop Vinyls, and the amount of people on there buying up all the special editions to jack up the price is insane.

Shame on me for forgetting that though.

I got a SDCC Westworld special through from Pop In A Box yesterday, although they don't have many. I get a lot through EMP though, I got my Gold Lemmy from there. The NYCC ones look brilliant.

Making of coming on release day! Presumably that's a song snippet as well.

Actually I think that probably is the making of.

Got it preordered and I can't wait. I'm listening to "Run" over and over. Wasn't too sure about it at first but it's really grown on me!
Honestly jonesing for this album. Avoiding listening to any other songs from it. Just wanna hear the whole thing.

Nice catch on the timing either way (as we grasp for clues - albeit kinda pointlessly with days to go lol )
Another thing -- Wikipedia (sure, anyone can update it) has been updated with supposed running times for each song, which seem to match both the general length of the album and the running times of the live performances of new songs. Listing the closing track around 5:31...doesn't really prove that there could be a secret track within the closing song, as it's not even the longest one on the album, but doesn't disprove it either necessarily.

Also, those running times put it well over the 46:57 runtime provided by Kerrang! but somewhat under the "49 minutes" provided by Amazon, so...take it for what you will. Tinfoil hat removed!

Does anyone else notice that when you go to the info section for the The Line on iTunes that it doesn't say the number of songs on the album? I downloaded the song from the pre-order on the site. It just says song 10, but in the box where it's supposed to say the total number of songs it says nothing.

Running times for all songs are on Apple Music / iTunes now, they match what's on Wikipedia (Happy Ever After (Zero Hour) is one second out!!! ).

This is really sad and petty, but I'm peeved at iTunes.

I bought Run when it first came out and now it doesn't count towards buying C&G as a whole. Buying the Line and TSIAN both lower the total cost of the album when it comes out but I'll have a 2nd copy of Run.

Petty....but I hate money grabs of this sort.
