When I chose to buy this CD I already had the Ocean avenue album but because it features Way away (acoustic) and an unreleased song called Firewater I thought it was worth checking out. I'm a pretty serious fan of the band and have all their albums and Ocean avenue is one of my favourite songs of theirs so it made sense.
Way away acoustic was a disappointment for me. Everything about the original recording has been taken away for this acoustic version. It's super mellow and really soft sounding. All the angst and frustration, the heavy sound and attitude has disappeared into what sounds like a soppy, drab ballad. I can't understand why bands feel the need to take all the energy out of original songs when they decide to do acoustic versions. Firewater is not one of their best songs but it's worth a listen. It really does sound like a B-side and not the type of song a band would put on an album because it`s not strong enough. The CD is enhanced and also includes the Ocean avenue video if you put into your PC.
Worth buying if you are a serious fan but in my opinion if you aren't then check out these extra songs on Youtube and save your money.
