This little guy was finally released earlier today for everybody who pledged for it during our recent Indie-Go-Go campaign.

Let me know your thoughts on this one :)

Cheers!

I really, really, really liked it.
These versions sound like a half way between demos and official songs.

Anyway, the compilation took me back to the first time I heard R.I.S., even if these mixes taste like different - but interesting - flavors.
For now, my favorite seems to be Knokk 'Em Down. I can't explain why, but it seems to have a sort of "punky" vibe that I can't feel with the official song. Might this be caused by the extra reverb on the verses? Haha, I really don't know.

I probably have to spend more listens with my headphones on, but overall I'm really impressed.

In all honesty, I had forgot that I bought this. So far these are an interesting insight into the original ideas for each song! Awesome job, IMO!!

These are very interesting to hear! I've heard demos here and there over the years and to see the songs change and grow over time is a very surreal experience. This is just one more step in their creation unheard by us fans I suppose! :o

-I'm guessing all of Dave's vocals are the final cuts as they sound almost identical to the album? Hearing him so clean and 'on top' of the instrumentation adds a whole new layer of freshness to the songs and respect for that man!
-Sooo glad Back on Trakk was included <3 I really dig the bass guitar higher in the mix and a few subtle guitar alterations are cool. Always LOVED the acoustic guitar on this song and it's just so damn neat to hear it a bit differently mixed!
-Queen Obscene has gone through so many changes, don't think I've heard that intro guitar part before. Speaking of guitar parts, I never actually noticed those few notes right before the choruses ("I swallowed..") on Miracle... just made me love the song even more!
-Breakin' the Chainz sounds heavier, I'm not sure why but it just sounds dirtier and grittier. I dig it.
-I've always said Peter and Martin's backup vocals are some of the best in the business and just hearing them more prominent in some spots is sick. I can't say enough good things about this album xD
-I think the handclappy-sounding drum things fit a little better on Needle than on Knokk 'Em Down, but they're overused. That's really the only detracting thing I can think of. Gonna have to listen with my good headphones yet so I may add more to this post when I do :)

Thank you again for this nice treat, boyz!!

What a TREAT! :woohoo:

I have so many questions but need to listen a bit more to them first :P

Right okay, let's make a start perhaps Martin would be the person knowing this stuff

1.) Are these the final mixes of the songs right before mastering? eg. Were those the takes that we hear on RIS?

2.) I always found it odd that RIS sounded quite patchy in terms of production. Most notably the drums (they sound different at almost every song). There is also a big difference between the songs produced by Chris Laney and Anders Ringman (Knokk 'Em Down, Needle In Your Eye, Tikket, Straight Outta Hell, Back On Trakk) as opposed to Grizzly and Tysper (Riot In Everyone,Queen Obscene, Breakin' The Chainz, Out Of Line, It's A Miracle). Let me just say that I prefer Laney's productions as they sound crisper and more modern. But as I said the most confusing thing is the recording of the Drums. According to the liner notes we have:

-BoBs Recording by Andreas Bauman (Knokk 'Em Down, Needle In Your Eye, Tikket, Straight Outta Hell, Back On Track)
-TEN Studios and Little Big Room (Riot In Everyone, It's A Miracle)
-Rommarö Studios and TEN Studios (Queen Obscene, Out Of Line)
-Little Big Room (Breakin' The Chainz)

As can be seen, the BoBs recordings are also the ones that Chris Laney and Anders Ringman produced and they sound the most consistent. How come the other songs were scattered about in terms of where to record them and with whom?

3.) Amazing to hear all the details in percussion elements and other effects that got lost during the master.

4.) Do you have more instrumentals like Miracle you could publish? It would help immensely in figuring out what the guitars doing ;)

5.) Any more of those? ...TIKKET?...:whistle:

I don't think I have anything original to add, so instead of repeating what everyone has already said I'll just reiterate one point: I absolutely LOVE the instrumental version of It's A Miracle. It's probably my favorite song on the album to begin with, and I'm a sucker for instrumentals in general. They give a completely different perspective and connect on a deeper level to me. I've found myself just listening to this track over and over.
