    Default What was reworked and what is new(spoilers)

    I thought I'd create a thread for what is reworked and what is new

    1. Tattoo-Reworked from down in flames. Completely rearranged though and sounds very different. The main riff from down in flames is actually played on Wolfie's bass through much of the song with Eddie just jamming over it and playing the riff every so often.
    2. She's the Woman-She's the woman
    3. You and Your Blues-completely new to my knowledge
    4. China Town-Completely new?
    5. Blood and Fire-reworked from Ripley. Most of the guitar is taken straight from it. Music written on top gives it a whole new dimension.
    6. Bullethead-Bullethead
    7. As Is-Completely new. Eddie's inspiration striking from two and a half men though. But seems like a new riff he came up with in the last 4 years or so. Also played at namm 2008 when he was just noodling.
    8. Honeybabiesweetiedoll-Main riff taken from DLR's flex
    9. The Trouble with Never-Modern track. Seems like it was taken from the gary era to me, but completely new to my knowledge. May be newer than that.
    10. Outta Space-Let's get rockin. Sounds awesome though. Much better or more modern with the new lyrics.
    11. Stay Frosty- New. The main riff is Led Zeppelin Friends just played higher though.
    12. Big River-Big Trouble. Almost identical. The music and singing. Just different lyrics.
    13. Beats Workin-Put out the lights. Very similar. Sounds better I think.

    So 5 never before heard songs(you and your blues, china town, as is, trouble with never, stay frosty). And 8 reworked songs with a lot of new stuff. I think it all sounds better. I also like how they arranged the album. Chinatown is a classic song #4. As is at 7. Tattoo kicks it off.

    The new stuff is really strong which helps. And the old stuff is really strong as well and reworked to perfection. Makes the album better than expected. I haven't heard the whole album and I'm sure there are parts that are pieced together from old noodling and just weird stuff like the beginning of some of these songs like Beats workin and Honeybabiesweetiedoll. From old tapes Eddie might have had laying around or they might have just been inspired and come up with on the fly. Most of the solos and breaks in the songs are also totally new.

    You are both wrong. Find a good pizza place that delivers. All that stuff is cookie cutter.
