    It's past peer review, and provided everything goes through OK, the song should be up in the next couple of days.

    Can't wait. I hope it isn't too different from the original.

    I think it's the same version they used in GH:VH, which was pretty faithful, but the vocals are noticably different.

    Yeah, it sounds good. It could have been much worse. Look at Hair of the Dog.

    If you only heard the song a long time ago and don't know it very well, the vocals are pretty much the same. Just a few little differences. And yeah, I see what you mean. The instruments seem to be a bit louder.

    ive actualy do know the song well thats the thing, but your not supposed to know the song to be able to enjoy singing it in game, and i felt it was too low volune on the vocal end compared to the instruments. but i was just 1 opinion of many so oh well :)

    The mixing of the vocals was way too low.

    well, i personaly thought it was low, but everyone else said it was ok, so take that as you will

    also after giving little black backpack another listen, it didnt sound too low to me, so i dont know, wait and see i guess

    way too low, the same can be said for their Indigo Friends, but Sick and the Nick Gallant songs were great.......so its hit or miss with the WG songs

    I certainly did not notice the mix issues on any of these songs you guys mention. They sound great on my TV.

    well what i notice on things king, is because i am primarily a vocalist especialy, is when the guitar/bass/drum sounds drown out and make me miss lyrics cuz i cant hear them over the other instruments, thats usualy what is being refered to.

    Hmmm, weird. I guess maybe I have a different sound setup or something?

    I've had that experience with other tracks though so I know what you mean.

    Well when you say that there is an issue, I don't think you're lying or anything. There have been songs that I said needed obvious changes to the mix but everyone else said it sounded just fine...

    yeah, and majority rules, i got no quams there, its why 1 person doesnt control review of an entire song :)
    Some songs may just sound off when they arent sometimes, no ones perfect. Some people are going to be more sensitive at certain times then others.

    People didn't like "Hair of the Dog" because they didn't like the rerecording? I thought it was because it played like crap.

    Just curious Vedis... what is your audio setup? I'm running Dolby Digital 5.1 through a receiver. When I do vocal playtesting I run it through headphones, and the receiver displays "Dolby Headphone". I playtested or reviewed about 8 songs that day, and I didn't perceive a significant difference in the mix for this one.

    i couldnt tell you what im running as it isnt my setup, but when it was the only song i noticed it on, i dont think the setup is what matters

    Normally, I would agree with you. But for me, this song warrants a purchase regardless. Not pressuring you to buy it, just putting my decision out there for one of my favorite songs of the 90s.

    For certain songs, I have the same feeling. But since "Last Resort" I more than likely look for a preview of some sort first.

    A few exceptions would be Freezepop, "Tribute" and "Godzilla"

    Is the song unfinished? There's no album art and the singer doesn't mouth the long goodbyes.

    Definitely, I had the same fear. But I bit the bullet on this one. Let's just hope it doesn't explode in my mouth...

    You know what you should do? Record an expert guitar vid and upload it so I can see it. xD

    There is no album art because it was a re-record. I guess they chose to not put a fake album art up.
