    I know LPU12 just came out and probably most of you have not heard it yet, but I'm starting this thread now anyways.

    I personally just would have made an 17-18 song album but if you were to recreate MTM having only 13 (or 14) tracks like the actual album does, what would it look like for you?

    Mine:

    1. Pale
    2. Asbestos
    3. Given Up
    4. Leave Out All the Rest
    5. Bleed it Out
    6. Across the Line
    7. What I've Done
    8. Valentine's Day
    9. QWERTY
    10. In Pieces
    11. Debris
    12. In Between
    13. Blackbirds
    14. What We Don't Know
    15. The Little Things Give You Away

    In reality though I wish It was that 15 with SOTD kept, plus Not Alone.

    Well it was a Minutes To Midnight demo. They just rewrote all of the lyrics post-MTM. So...you're right, I don't know if it would count. The finished product came after MTM.

    Blackbirds
    Given Up
    Leave Out All The Rest
    Bleed It Out
    What We Don't Know
    Shadow Of The Day
    Hands Held High
    No More Sorrow
    Valentine's Day
    In Between
    In Pieces
    No Roads Left
    The Little Things Give You Away

    there's my rough list. I don't think any of the LPU 12 demos would have any place on MTM as they are. MTM has the right amount of slickness and polish on it, while these demos are just half baked sketches (which is why they're demos).

    Hard to say, I would've kept a lot more then they did.

    MTM is a perfect work of art, but they should have had Across The Line, What We Don't Know and Blackbirds on the album somewhere. Every single b-side/demo/seed from this album I am in love with, so it really should have just had 150 tracks on it. Haha. Best LP album hands down.

    Does really matter anyways considering we're getting them through the Lpu. I guess it would means the songs would've been a little different or more polished. Doesn't really make a difference to me.

    going outside the ruleset for: MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT: ELAINE'S EDITION.


    ______________________

    1.) Pale
    A more touched up, less demo-ey sounding recording, fully mastered.

    2.) Given Up
    The song we all know and love/hate.

    3.) Asbestos
    A finished version, with a chorus, and explosive outro, building into--

    4.) Blackbirds
    A mellow transition into Blackbirds, doing away with the dulled/muted intro we have currently.

    5.) What We Don't Know
    A finished rendition, with touched up lyrics, and a more 'punchy' instrumental piece.

    6.) What I've Done
    The one and the same, though with the bridge from "Bang Three" after the bridge we have, building into the final chorus.

    7.) Pretend To Be
    I was debating putting this on the list or not as it's technically post-MTM release, but I feel it'd have been incomplete without it here.

    8.) Not Alone
    A slightly more melow version.

    8.) Wake
    Yes. Wake. Only, this time, a more interludey rendition, rather than an intro piece. Building into an explosive climax, which transitions into;

    9.) Bleed It Out
    No changes.

    9.) QWERTY
    A less grungy version, to fit more in with Minutes To Midnight's style, whilst retaining the kind of 'punch' we get from the guitars.

    10.) Shadow Of The Day
    No changes.

    11.) Bunker
    Finished, with an intense rap. However, the synth sort of begins to change near the end of the song as a transitional piece, evolving into;

    12.) Across The Line
    No changes.

    13.) Leave Out All The Rest
    No changes.

    14.) No More Sorrow
    No changes.

    15.) Hands Held High
    No changes.

    16.) Valentine's Day
    No changes.

    17.) In Between
    No changes.

    18.) Clarity
    A finished version, with a different intro that better flows from the end of In Between. An Interlude track.

    19.) In Pieces
    The song we all know and love.

    20.) Homecoming
    A finished version, with vocals.

    21.) Debris
    A more punchy version, with the strings more intense than before, an anthem track.

    22.) The Little Things Give You Away
    The closer of the album.

    23.) No Roads Left
    An epilogue track. Maybe slightly changed around to be more along the lines of this album's "The Messenger".

    I dunno, I just think for a special edition they should put all the finished b-sides on an extra disc. Swapping and moving songs about is something only LP should feel they should do, so keep it simple and make a double album :rastamike:

    Maybe replace Given Up and Bleed it Out

    with Not Alone and No Roads left.

    That's all.
