Me too! I'm in France and I tried but everywhere they say that in my area not possible to listen Grrrrr! I also have a UK IP addy and that's the same - not possible. How frustrating. Does anyone have an address that we can use to listen to the album? I've ordered the CD but another week to wait is sooooo long !!!! thanks

The northcountrypublicradio.org link does not work any more, perhaps it was just a 24h stream.

For those who have regio lock problems:
Use Firefox, download the Hotspot shield (free VPN proxy) extension, set its virtual location to US and use the link for the US/Canadian users.

Thank you majmumka. That worked great. However, I'm on Mac and it worked with Safari. This is the link I found, if it helps

JudasPriest wrote:Sublime piece of work. If I Didn't Have Your Love the only one not quite hitting the bullseye for me (yet). A little too sickly sweet perhaps? Early days though. The album as a whole I'm reasonably confident is at a minimum as good as Popular Problems which I love. Whether it will pull ahead remains to be seen with repeated plays but it's distinctly possible...
IMHO, this album is his best one since The Future, by far.
an astonishing piece of art for a man of 82 years old.
best production ,best voice, best singing.
treaty is already a classic, one of his best songs

There are so many great lines from the songs, but this is one of my favorites from "Treaty":

I heard the snake was baffled by his sin
He shed his scales to find the snake within
But born again is born without a skin
The poison enters into everything
