I was waiting for someone to say something about that.

Just because I don't feel like looking the other thread up, iTunes has samples of all the tracks on Tate's version

Yeah, and the samples range from alright, to meh, and the re-records. Dear god, the re-records.

Apparently the album is being remixed. And it does have some interesting guests. My guess is it'll be a decent effort. It's just got terrible cover art and would be easier to stomach if it was released as a Geoff Tate solo album.

Yeah the solo stuff is usually solid, I'm interested to see what happens since they'll apparently be 2 mixes of this record, I'm 5 tracks in and haven't heard the rerecords yet

I'd say do yourself a favor and don't listen to them, but you're curious, and you will. They are awful. I think some of the songs on FU sound promising (maybe like "Cold" or "Slave") and I'll be interested to hear them outside of the crazy low-fi iTunes previews. But the re-records are just fucking terrible.

My guess, and I think it's a fair guess, is that the label demanded the re-records. It's a low budget outfit and those re-records can draw attention to the album, or be packaged on other compilations later. I'm guessing considering that GT and Co. probably put minimal effort into them. At least, I hope, because that's what it sounds like.

Figured that, makes sense


and having now heard all the samples there's a few promising songs

About the autotune thing:
http://www.anybodylistening.net/brea...p?topic=3964.0
It's being said on the last few pages that Century Media used compression on the song before putting it on youtube and that makes the vocals sound different and gives the impression that autotune is being used. There is an actual rip from the radio program of the song without the compression. The owner of the site can't post it on there because it breaks a rule so if someone on here could find that version and post it, that would be great.

Well, we are within 2 months of the album release and it's in that time that bands announce full album details and release a first, official single. I'm so excited!

Also, this is pretty interesting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bY0IZbaRH3Q

It was never actually called a single and hasn't been made available for sale either. The only reason it was made available is because that radio show played it.
