Strays early version?

#1 Post by coffeepotman » Fri Nov 20, 2015 4:37 pm

I readon the .org site that Leaked early versions of this album have a much more rough and natural sound that Jane’s Addiction is known for, and some fans prefer the leaked recordings over the final product.

Is this true and why didn't I know about this? can someone shed some light and a title or maybe even a download?

yes there is an early version. i like it better. back when xiola was around some guy came on and said that he had the album early. sonny called bullshit and the guy sent it to him. sonny made the famous post and review that "you guys will fucking love this album". he shared it with dain and told him not to share it. of course dain gave it to everyone. i don't have it on my computer anymore or i would upload it. i'm sure someone has it.

Yep. That version of True Nature is the best song any of these guys has done in years.

i know there are two versions of the leaked album.

these also have martyn on them before chris chaney came in and re recorded them.

one of them also had "bring the mood" on it.

Ive got it somewhere. True Nature end is really good. The version of To Match The Sun without that shitty voice over at the start is much better also. Forgot about that. Good to listen to it again.

the riff in True Nature is still pretty lame no matter what version it is, but the breakdown guitar in that song is very very good. Very cool chordal work

I've never liked TMTS. That's a True Nature demo right? With different lyrics. I thought the Hypersonic leaked version was the same as Strays but it the longer ending?

Wow! Thank you for so much information. Well I've basically put strays out of my mind for years, many years, but I listened to it the other day and it was just what I remembered, pretty lame and generic. If someone has the early version I'd love to hear it cause anything has got to be better that the released version.

TMTS sounds similar to the more dreamy airy parts of RDLH at times.
What could have been...........

Same here. Although that excitement was quickly tempered by the "meh" '02 NYE show where they played Hypersonic and at least one other Strays album song that didn't exactly indicate the new album was going to be anywhere as good as the previous stuff.

Also, I don't recall the Chipmunks/Etty spoken "pillow" bit though that's in this version of the holiday greeting.
