I'm currently feelin: curious curious

I have been listening to some of the (pretty bad quality) leaked u2 songs.
I am intrigued as to how people have gotten them.
In one of them, love and peace or else, it sounds like someone is standing recording this from a croner of a street. All I can hear is what sounds like passing cars. :\ I'm a bit more exicted about this album now. Still hate the album title though. :D

They're not passing cars, they're actually waves rolling in and out by Bono's beach house in Eze, southern France. From what I understand, Bono was playing the new album very loud, loud enough for those on the beach to be able to hear it, so some Spaniards and Italians were quick on the uptake and recorded the leaks. Must say I prefer the work of the Italians, considering that there's no annoying chatter over the top of their clips (the short and long leaks of LAPOE).

No problems. I was really unsure what they were at first (initially I just guessed static), but when I concentrated on them through my headphones and recalled that the leaks were from the beach, I realised they were absolutely, 100% waves.

Although I don't think that's true for the All Because Of You leak. That was recorded at Hanover Quay in Dublin, so it was the wind, not waves. Just thought I'd clarify that. :)

Ah-ha! I thought they were taken from sneaks in a studio holding the recording devise in their pockets or something.

Well, I believe All Because Of You was actually recorded from the wharves outside U2's Hanover Quay studios ... that would also mean that you can hear wind rather than waves on that clip.
