    Just listen to the previews. You'll see the differences for free.

    LOL who would think that ATL was completed in 2008/2009 after because the fans wanted to hear ''Japan'' from the MTM DVD? That's just silly to think. NRL, ATL, WWDK are all ''2007 DEMOS'', it clearly says so. The other tracks like Pretend To Be, Debris, Not Alone & Blackbirds were the tracks finished in 2008/2009 from the MTM sessions. I assume that at some point ATL, NRL and WWDK were all going to be on MTM, but were scrapped last minute.

    :shoopdawhoop: Why did they do that to SOTD? Kinda ruined the song for me. The drum beats were unnecessary in "no roads left".

    It shouldn't have ruined the song for you... You always have the original version to listen to...

    These "new" versions of SOTD and NRL are demos, definitely.
    The strings on SOTD aren't really strings, they're done with a keyboard, as written in the booklet of MTM:

    "The keyboard loop in Shadow Of The Day went through many different changes during the song's creation. Dozens of options were created on piano, acoustic guitar, marimba, xylophone, and even electric banjo before finally writing the reversed/edited keyboard version that appears here.".

    And they really sound to me as unfinished strings.

    The drum loop on NRL make it sound as a "work in progress" version of the song. The drum loop was later removed to make the song more "progressive" - the version we already have from MTM Tour Edition.

    EDIT: on the other hand, I hated the previews of these songs on itunes. Now that I listened to the full versions, I even like them, specially NRL.

    No, there are live strings on SOTD. The keyboard they are talking about, it's the reversed keyboard on the intro of the song, that plays throughout the song.

    No, he isn't.
    They are talking about the reversed keyboard, yes, but there aren't live strings on this version of SOTD. They are played on a keyboard for sure. Like BTH's strings were before the finished version, for example.

    No, there are definitely live strings. It's the same strings on the original release. They just added a second layer of strings (that might be synth) to counter the MPC piece

    Hands Held High sounds different as well. The group vocals are more distinguishable, the strings are clearer and the bass guitar is louder as well.

    ... I should be studying right now, fuck :lol:

    EDIT: Well, I might as well say that I think My December also got a "facejob". Sounds a lot clearer imo

    I think most of the songs sound clearer. But that's normal for remasterings.

    How many times have I felt that way in the last past weeks... :lol:

    Btw, digging the new mix of SOTD...I feel like the new synth give the song a more 80 feel.
