    Default ADKoT: "A Different Kind of" running order -- try it out!!

    The other day after work I was putting around with ADKoT and stumbled on a running order that makes "A Different Kind of Truth" sound like "A Different Kind of" album to me...

    Let me know if you like it!!

    1. As Is
    2. The Trouble With Never
    3. Bullethead
    4. Blood and Fire
    5. China Town
    6. Honeybabysweetiedoll
    7. Tattoo
    8. She's The Woman
    9. Outta Space
    10. You And Your Blues
    12. Big River
    12. Beats' Workin'
    13. Stay Frosty


    In other words, (in order track 7; track 9; track 6; track 5; track 4; track 8 track 1; track 2; track 10; track 3; track 12; track 13; track 11

    It's the same album, but in my opinion, it has a whole different feel... I suggest trying it out if you have time.

    I do something similar like this to several albums that I think that songs were placed in the wrong order. I can remember doing this to A Bigger Bang by the Stones a few years ago. I thought there were several strong songs on it but the album didn't flow very good at all until I re-arranged it and even dropped two songs and replace them with the B-Sides from that album...LOL. I haven't had to do this with ADKOT though, but I will listen to it this way to see.

    I still think of albums in terms of 2 sides, so "Stay Frosty" - in this imaginary running order - would have ended side 1 and HBSD would have started side 2. I also thought it would have been a lot cooler if they opened ADKOT with the 3 fast, short numbers to rip our heads off as opposed to the way it actually started. Lastly, generally speaking, my list is front loaded with my favorites (not really a big fan of China Town or Trouble with never; I wouldn't have thought any differently about the album if they had left those 2 off or made them B-Sides).

    I've been doing this with albums for years also, and although I'm OK with ADKOT's running order I thought I'd give it go:

    1. She's The Woman (An obvious album opener and "we're back" calling card for me)
    2. China Town
    3. Tattoo (works better further in IMHO)
    4. As Is
    5. Outta Space
    6. Big River
    7. You And Your Blues
    8. Bullethead
    9. Stay Frosty
    10. Honeybabysweetiedoll
    11. Blood And Fire
    12. Beats Workin'
    13. The Trouble With Never

    Pretty cool ideas might have to mix up the running order myself.
    Janie Liszewski did the IMPOSSIBLE she helped Eddie Van Halen get better. Deal with it.

    Yeah, it gives the whole album a totally different vibe.

    When you finish the project, send me a link, too?? I'd love to hear it!

    when I listen to the CD in my car I always start the CD on track 4 (ChinaTown). Then I listen to first 3 songs last. Seems to rock more in that order.
