    How's the bass? After all this is Talk Bass.
     
  3. i downloaded it, and i think a lot of the songs are forgettable, except for a few such as My Life Story which i really like.

    i'm not a big MxPx fan so the only songs i can compare to the rerecordings are punk rawk show and chick magnet. the new version of p.r.s. is much better, but the new version of chick magnet is slowed down and the voice is drenched in reverb, sounds pretty lame in my opinion.

    Easiest bass line ever. :p I like chick magnet only coz it has a catchy bass line as such. I have heard a few others and they are bordering on better than the originals. I think its a sign of desperativeness if you start to redo your own songs onto another album.

    But hey, Blink did it with Buddha and Cheshire Cat and look what it did to them! (no pun intended).
