Yes. There are previously released songs on this album. Seven of them. Got a problem with that? Wanna take this outside?
Let’s talk about this. Sure, that’s 7 brand new songs we could have had– and everyone feels a bit of a sting at the thought of having lost seven new a.b.s songs– after all, we want as bloody much as we can get our lace-gloved hands on! Much as I respect you all, I must make this point: probably what you’re really upset about is the fact that you bought all the singles and now you feel like you’re getting ripped off.
Of course this isn’t the case. You wouldn’t be proper fans if you didn’t collect the very collectible limited and first-press editions (or any editions, for that matter) of all their singles. And then there’re the B-sides. Excellent songs unto themselves– Freedom, for one. So suck it up– a full length album full-stop is an incredible gift of music from the boys, not to be understated.
Oh– and if you have first-press limited editions with external bonuses that you’re such a punk you don’t want, there are a few I’m bummed to be missing, so we can take this to the other room and talk business. +g
Tracklist released for a.b.s‘ much-anticipated (at least by me. Shaking in my boots here!) new full-length album, to hit shelves (or leave the warehouse, in the case of us foreigners) on January 27th, ’10. I’m pumped to see the track selection– all the new stuff has funky and promising titles, and all the old stuff were obvious picks (all the hits of the year). All I freakin’ wanna know is what the heck BLADE CHORD is doing on here. It has, in my personal experience and opinion, absolutely no business being on this album.
Limited edition includes bonus DVD featuring footage from their performance at “Inazuma Rock Fes” on September 19, 2009 in Shiga (prefecture near Kyoto). DVDs are region-2 encoded (Japan, Europe, and Middle East), and carry no subtitles.
