Absolute disaster. There's 13 year olds on the GGD Facebook forum putting out better mixes than this.

 

Anders, 2019:
"No. I will never go back and do another 'The Jester Race' or 'Whoracle' or 'Colony' or 'Clayman'. It wouldn't be right. It wouldn't be true to that album. That album is perfect in every way. If I try to go back 20 years and try to recreate something when I'm in a whole different state of mind, that wouldn't do it justice. It would just only be bad.""

In Flames announced that we would get the four re-recorded songs (and that interlude) as a standalone EP before the 20th anniversary edition drops on July 24th, hence the leak

Alright, here's my opinion to these re-records...

 

First of all, the re-record of Only For The Weak sucks. Yeah, sorry, I was thinking it might be better than that, but here I gotta agree with people that will soon say so - the original is superior.

Secondly, Bullet Ride. It's a cool re-record, I like it just as much as the original song. This is probably a very unpopular opinion in the end, but I dig it. 

Third, Pinball Map. It's fine, but here again, I prefer the original way much over this. This just doesn't feel as powerful as the OG anymore. It does not suck, but it's not good either.

And finally, Clayman, which is my favorite song from the OG album. Both versions are just equally good to me. The original because of it's crispyness and heavyness, the re-record because of the melodicness. 

 

Overall, I think this was not really needed to re-record these songs and they could also just have scrapped Pinball Map and Only For The Weak's re-records. Many will probably say this entire thing was not needed and I can understand it, but it exists now and at the very end, you can also just ignore this and go listen to the OG's. Which might be the better way to go honestly for many. 

 

Dunno what to think of the interlude though. It's there, I guess.

Not bad, looking forward to the remasters. Thanks for posting.

 

After comparing to the original tracks though, gotta agree with the majority here.

I still go an original album from 2005, and let me tell you, it is way more powerfull sounding then this re-recorded stuff. Why was this an good idea is beyonf me.... (money).....
Go buy original 2005 Clayman album, and forget this ever existing. An tell exevrone else who don't know where this abomanation came from... tell them it was already there in 2005, in their true form and true sounding....

Clayman came out in 2000. What are you talking about here?
