Love the cover art! I didn't like the original, but you managed to turn the idea into something pretty nice.

Thanks! I wasn't a huge fan either, but I thought it'd be cool to connect my art to the original.

I haven't had the chance to mess around in Garageband with these tracks yet, but I've been following this thread...a lot of these mixes are brilliant, especially the Naked mix and the Ben-only mix.  I burned my own version of WtN mostly using tracks from these two, a couple from the Seeds disc, and the fake songs...and it's ordered like so:

1. Effington (Drew's solo mix)
2. Way to Normal
3. Dr. Yang (Seeds disc...I like the bass in your face...though the official WtN mix has too much)
4. The Frown Song (Benfolio's naked mix)
5. Bitch Went Nutz
6. Hiroshima (Benfolio's naked mix)
7. Lovesick Diagnostician
8. Free Coffee Town
9. Errant Dog (Benfolio's naked mix)
10. You Don't Know Me (Drew's solo mix)
11. Bitch Went Nuts (Drew's solo mix)
12. Free Coffee (Benfolio's naked mix)
13. Brainwascht (Benfolio's naked mix)
14. Brainwashed
15. Frowne Song (Feeble Anthem)
16. Kylie From Connecticut (Drew's solo mix)
17. Cologne (Piano Orchestra...no other version compares imo...the solo mix comes close, but I can still hear the drums and it annoys me)

This is definitely replacing WtN in my CD changer.

Same here, but it's only noticeable a few times before the strings kick in.

Me too. I always bugs me if I can hear another instrument in the background of a track.
HOLY CRAP!!!!

well that's the nature of the beast with how ben recorded this. many of the tracks were recorded at the same time but not completely separated from one another so the bleed constantly into one another.

Makes me think the album was rushed.  Did they really decide it was best to record the drums in a NON-sound-proof room?  :-\

The bass bleeds onto the piano on Errant dog as well.

ben did say that Herring only gave them a certain number of chances to get it right.  even if ben didn't like the "final cut", they went with it.

It works well on the album, or if you put it together with piano/bass/drums/vocals, but I just HAD to cut the drums out of Cologne. Big fan of the DVD version, sorry.

If I did it over again I'd try and mute the drums, make them not so drummachine-y, something. Or..... cut Ben's vocals...... yeeeahhhhh.....
