    Default Electric Drums on the track "Crossing Over"?

    Sorry if this has been discussed before. Just listening to "Crossing Over" and after all these years I just noticed the drums at the beginning sound electric, very similar to the 5150 album drum sound.

    I thought it was odd that Alex would use Electric drums in the mid 90's.

    Any thoughts?

    I'm not a musician, but they don't sound electric to me.

    But again, I am not qualified to ascertain whether or not they are. But even a hack like me can hear that they are electric on 5150.

    Yes they are electric and it's Eddie playing them !

    This tune was done many years ago with Eddie playin the electric drums and singing the vocals on it as well.

    It was redone later on during the balance sessions, but keeping Eddie's drum track on one channel and Alex added his drums on the other.

    You can also hear Eddie's vocals as well in the background throughout the whole song.

    I think it was on the Japanese version of Balance, additionally I think I have it on an import single as well. I'd have to check, that track has been on my computer for years.

    Not a great tune but not bad.

    'Crossing Over' was the 'B' side on "Can't Stop Loving You".

    Great song IMO.
