And I'd pay for a 256kbps AAC iTunes Plus rip as anything is better than 128kbps.
I must be a internet n00b I can't find the track which is annoying. I want to listen to it in my car tomorrow! Odd that you can't download it once the game is completed. Will have to have another search in the morning to see if I can get.
I wish I could give them my money to buy the song. I have no quarms about buying it at all! And even if I get a d/l I'll still buy it on iTunes.
Yeah I'm sorry. Even with the above knowledge (knowing that you have the game and would buy the track separately if you could), posting a link to get the mp3 is just asking for WBR to send us a cease and desist notice. We just cant risk ruining our relationship with the band/wbr since we've worked hard to gain that trust. Sorry.
I have 320kbs... it's not that hard to find it
It's a trans-code. The direct version from Artificial Life is only 128kbps. No other version has been officially released.
Really? Oh well... but it does have better quality than the 128kbs version that leaked initially
It might seem like it's better quality but believe it or not, it's actually worse. With a trans code, every time you re-save an mp3 on top of the original mp3, it compresses the file and loses quality. There's no way to actually make a compressed file uncompressed. While some people will never notice the difference, there are audio purists out there who will only listen to FLAC files (uncompressed, direct from cd rips) because mp3 files lose some of the fidelity of the original recording.
yes, I know about all that music file encoding stuff, I'm actually one of those people who prefer lossless files over mp3, lol (btw, offtopic, Creative is releasing a media player that reads Flac! ) . But right now I don't care about it because, trans-coded or not, the "320kbs" version I have sounds waaaay better that the first file (128) I found
Fair enough lol. I wonder if Creative's player will be better than VLC's. Right now VLC is my player of choice for FLACs .
the song would be so much better if the last chorus had distorted guitars as ATL did.
Can't find a decent full length version
I can't get my version of 8-bit working
I'm waiting for the full 8-bit soundtrack, lol (Am I the only one?). If only I had an iPod, I'd be able to play this masterpiece of art.
What's happening with it?
I play it and personally I don't think it is a masterpiece of art - It is good but there are a lot of better iPod/iPhone games in the iTunes Store.
I recorded one version by myself. The quality is good if you watch the video in HD (nothing in comparison to a real lossless version) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ox2bZFNLhGg
Crash to Menu when I try to use an account.
Working now, started playing without making and account then converted over to one, dunno why it wasn't working...
Fun so far
Lemme alert Adam of LPU here and see if he knows of a tech support email for 8BR. He might not but it's worth a try.
Working now, guess I didn't edit fast enough
Still wouldn't hurt to tell them though.
I revise my earlier impression that the lyrics have improved (maybe except for Mike's part). It's just the same LP lugubriousness we've known since forever. I do like lugubriousness, but some stylistic changes wouldn't hurt I guess, especially since musical progress is so important to LP. The image of Blackbirds is completely missing in the stanzas, in a literal, metaphorical and allegorical way.
And while the imagery in the chorus is pretty cool, the last line pulls it back into the same old lyrical plainness: "The pain, it comes in waves". If they needed a rhyme so badly, why not "My pain is what they crave" or something like that, this would at least directly relate to the blackbirds.
Just my 2 cents, overall a song I like listening to anyway.
