It's laughable to think that the same fans who are complaining and feel insulted at the carrots being dangled in front of them would actually end up paying for the songs if Javier did actually release them for a fee online.
Did you ever download the Gift of Screws files? Did you buy "Say You Will?"
I know of bands that make individual songs available for free in their sites before even releasing albums. And then the fans who download the songs go buy the albums.
Are you speaking for yourself?
