Also, 9 tracks seems like JUST the right amount to make a fake album but still seem semi believable.  I mean, it's only 34 minutes long.

34 minutes for 9 tracks is a pretty long album there.

That is true.  However, what I meant to say was that, assuming that Cologne, YDKM, and Hiroshima are legitimate, which I believe them to be, that leaves a little over 20 minutes of "fake" material.  Even less if the title track is also legit.  Which is not that much for Ben to bullshit to make a fake leak.

For those wondering about Cologne in relation to the DVD shoot, have a listen:

the choir part is the same.  and, in the leak, the lyrics mention the astronaut who drove to kill in a diaper, which somebody had mentioned being part of the lyrics after being in the studio.  sounds pretty legit unless ben got these people to participate only to put them on a fake.  that would just be wrong...

That album cover is surely genuine. I recognise the skull to be Bens.

Free Coffee is making me laugh so hard I actually shot cupcake icing out my nose.

Also, Dr. Yang is my new favorite song.

Hiroshima, You Don't Know Me, Way To Normal & Cologne will be on the album, the others not so much i think. If this is the case, pretty good effort for some fakes!

You know, for a leak, I'm surprised it had absolutely no tags on it at all.

I just opted to listen to them in whatever order they loaded into winamp with. Which was completely random.

Normally leaks come with track numbers and all that. And I've never seen the album artwork as a pdf and not jpg. That just even more makes me think these came from the source.

There's a noticeable difference between the three songs we know are real (You Don't Know Me, Hiroshima and Cologne) and the other tracks. Ben's voice sounds distinctly different, as if those three tracks were professionally produced and the rest were recorded and produced quickly at home.
