Record companies need to get their heads out of their asses and realize that there is no stopping the behemoth of file sharing.
They need to tame the beast, not try to kill it. Give the reviewers only half of the advance album to review, make them listen to the rest in a listening room.
The half lent to the reviewers will find it's way to p2p networks and create a buzz and people can read about the other half but not hear it until release day.
