Welcome 2 My Bonus Tracks

Post by Julio Anpacolucci » Sun Sep 28, 2014 5:26 am

Where can be found the bonus tracks "Flatline" and "A Bad Situation" from this album?! How exciting there are Coop tracks I never have met.

BONUS TRACKS

In total, there are 4 all new bonus tracks which can be obtained by purchasing different editions of the album:

Under The Bed (available on the Classic Rock fan pack edition only)

A criminal exclusion from the album and a song that everyone should possess (apparently, it was left out as it didn’t quite fit into the theme). I would draw comparisons to this song with Wind Up Toy from Hey Stoopid which just happens to be one of my all-time favourite Alice tracks.

A Bad Situation (available on the iTunes edition only)

A fairly laid back rocker with a comical edge to the lyrics. Not a bad track but not essential by any means.

We Gotta Get Out Of This Place (available on the standard/deluxe CD editions only)

A cover of the track by the same name by the Animals. Whilst the track is more than bearable, it’s got nothing in common with the nightmare theme.

Flatline (available on 2-Disc vinyl edition only)

This has to be one of the most obsure 'songs' Alice has ever done. It is basically a series of beeps and is, I guess, supposed to depict Steven’s death (as announced in I Gotta Get Out Of Here). I'll stick my neck out and say that Alice probably had little to do with this. The track interested many when it was announced in that it was only to be made available on the vinyl edition. As it turns out though it is pretty pointless, especially as it is the only track on Side B of Disc 2.

I should add that Under The Bed is also now available on the Japanese SHM CD release.

There was a time that I would have absolutely had to have any extra tracks possible. I remember paying 26 1986 dollars for the Zorg Woman soundtrack album just to get Space Pirates/I'm Flash - and felt it was worth every dollar! Now I spend time on Alice projects - got a killer one on the go, should be done in a few weeks if my home renos don't get in the way.

Good luck with your search, I'm sure those tracks are just a few clicks and dollars away.

I edited it, as his second comment broke the rules of the board and was irreverent to the question he was asking.

Flatline is basically a recording of a flatline. :yawn:
The best bonus track and one of the best songs on the album is "Under The Bed". The song is amazing!

I really like Flatline. Very unexpected and eerie.

don't forget there were a few live tracks as bonuses on some editions,which I personally thought really broke up the whole flow of the theme (unless of course you stop the album,and play the live tracks at a later time,lol. talk about a pointless thing to put on an album)

I refuse to acknowledge them for the very reasons you state :)
