I really like the “Demos” series from Ytsejam. It’s very interesting to hear what our beloved songs sounded like when they were first conceived. In most cases the songs were better before they were torn apart by the producer(s). I am glad, however, that they removed the puking sounds from the original ending of Burning My Soul. Weird.

After listening to these older versions I found that Lines in the Sand is one of my favorite songs by DT… that is, before they added those horrid backing vocals to the studio mix. I also enjoy Hollow Years much more without the country sounding slide guitar.

The big draw to this bootleg has got to be the original raw version of Metropolis Pt 2. It’s surprising to hear how much of the original music made it into the final release and how much better Jordan is at composing music than Derek. This is truly the gem of this bootleg.

Packaging:
There’s so much information packed into the liner notes, you can really tell that Mike spent a lot of time working on this project. I, for one, really appreciate being able to read about each individual song in such detail.
