Ever since The Incident by Porcupine Tree was leaked there have been 7 ratings already. I don't think it's good that this site has people who opinionate on leaks which were not in the good intentions of the artists, in this case PT. I don't know if you should remove them or just warn the raters, but I just thought something had to be done.

Dealt with. Prior to the release date, all ratings without reviews and reviews based on leaks will be removed. Cheers

No problem. I suggest checking 2032 and The Whirlwind for other possible ratings.

New one for The Incident, and not only is it not a rating, but a review, it is also stolen from another user, and not only that, from another SITE!

And the rating itself is inappropriate, he said  "I may require more listens, but so far... is not even close to other good albums." but still rated it 4 stars. There are now two ratings on The Incident, btw

There should be an announcement on the front page during times like these of anticipated prog albums that are about to be released.

The most visited album (as seen on homepage) is exactly this album. I wonder what are people seeing there. No reviews, no ratings ... Oh crap, there are ratings. And quite high ones.

So either lock unreleased albums, or constantly delete rats/revs. Or leave them rate/review it, there's no other choice :-)

8 ratings, for god's sake

There's a point where "avant-garde" and "experimental" becomes "terrible" and "pointless,"

The issues about "locking unreleased albums" are that we cannot forget to unlock Embarrassed it and also that the release date vary from one country to another: sometimes a band choose a country (not always USA or UK) and make a test there to feel the pulse, things like that.

  EmbarrassedEdit. Apologies - I may have jumped the gun on this particular release. However, it would still be great if some of these ratings could be better monitored and dealt with accordingly. Smile

I don't see  any ratings also, but two hours ago, they were there. About 4.56 average (maybe) and 8 ratings. Maybe 4.5, but now, nothing.

Which is good of course.

what about some tiny application in admin panel which would serve as time lock (IE-would open album at day of its first release date, so DE-21,US-24,UK-27 = unlock on 21), but that's just suggestion, nothing more. If you'll find it impossible to do (after all, you woud do all the job, I'm just advisor, just words, no deeds), I'm happx with current state.

I must admit that I wasn't counting with that unlock thing, my bad. But these dates should be included on album's page.

I was able to get a copy of "The Incident" ten days before it's official release. I won't tell you how.

It is possible that these people did the same thing I did.

If it's illegal, please omit posting it, because Prog Archives doesnt support or admit illegal downloading.
 
Please if you like Prog Archives and want to keep it open, avoid comments that could place us in risk.

Ivan is right. 

Just an inconsequential note: aside from promo copies, sometimes bands and/or PR people deliberately leak the music to create a buzz/ advance interest.
