So is the trackilsting on the new cd the same as the original? That’s what I understood was happening, but that the vinyl has Nigel Godrich’s preferred sequence. Find it a bit weird they have done it that way tbh, and as I have the original cd would have been quite happy to get the reissue in alternative form.
Have refused to listen to TT because it didn’t have a special edition to spend a summer with. Farewell Horizontal will be with me in a week. Really hope they call the tour that like they refused to before.
Going to see them with my mate in that London (3 bucket list gigs this year, tempted by Macca as well) and we cannot wait - both expecting it to be shit and it hasn’t affected our enthusiasm one bit. Don’t know if this is normal.
I’ll move the reply over to the new thread. That end section is where the remaster really lifts things. If you enjoy it as much as I did, you’re in for a treat.
I really don’t understand where Godrich is coming from with that preferred sequence though, it’s just so fucking weird and the flow doesn’t work for me at all. Spit On A Stranger is already a great opener.
I enjoyed a first listen through some of the demos and extra tracks mind. I knew the Major Leagues demo already as it was on the EP of that name, but the Carrot Rope one is cool. Had always assumed that most tracks that didn’t end up on TT became the basis of the first Malkmus solo record
