5.0 out of 5 stars Not an Album BUT A '' Dress Up cd'' as amy lee says, 13 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Review COPIED From EVANESCENCE The reference origin page !!

Origin was released on November 4th, 2000, in Little Rock, Arkansas. Many different versions of Origin exist, but there's only one true track listing. Only 2500 copies of the original were made. Bigwig Enterprises stopped selling Origin in early February 2003 (a day or two before the Daredevil Soundtrack album was released) and removed it from their catalogue.[1][2]

Amy Lee does not consider this an album, but rather a collection of demos that they "dressed up" to send to different major labels. The album contains early versions of songs found on Fallen: My Immortal, Imaginary, Whisper.

The original release contained a hidden track, which is located before the first track. In order to hear it, you have to rewind (while hearing what you are rewinding) the first song and reach -0:24 approximately (yes, minus). It is an outtake of the end of the bridge of Anywhere, featuring Amy Lee and David Hodges singing and a quote from the movie My Boyfriend's Back:
Vin1.jpg There's a lot of prejudice against the undead. Vin2.jpg

The frontal cover was created by Rocky Gray.

The end of the album was originally supposed to include the song Listen To The Rain between the songs Eternal and Demise. Pre-releases of the album included this song, but the finished product did not include the song. 'Origin' differs from other Evanescence records in that it features more electronic instrumentation and the tracks are more closely linked to one another.

Artwork

The following images are original concept art from Bigwig Enterprises' production team (not scans). The disc is a scan, but only because original vector-based artwork doesn't begin to resemble the actual disc. These are as accurate as images of this disc can get. They are gently watermarked to discourage bootlegging.

The insert is a tri-folded demigloss, light-medium weight paper with one side of color images and the reverse side of grayscale. The tray insert is single-sided. The piece of plastic that the disc sits in is opaque. In the front of the front insert can be noticed a latin text from the Bible, Romans 6:4[3]: consepulti enim sumus cum illo per baptismum in mortem ut quomodo surrexit Christus a mortuis per gloriam Patris ita et nos in novitate vitae ambulemus ('Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, in order that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life').

Original Release

In the official label's website Origin was available for purchase at the price of 15$[4]. The album could be ordered both online via PayPal.com or via mail. Shipping were available for USA, and after some time also for Canada (at the price of 16$) and even for Europe (at the price of 17$)[5]. Now, real and fake copies are bought on EBay for upwards of $300.

Fake Re-Releases
Fake Release

In 2003, a "re-release" of Origin came out supposedly under the label 'Epic' although was in fact a fake. It contained most of the tracks from the real Origin, however with some tracks, different versions were used. In the case of Whisper and My Immortal, the Fallen versions were used.

The audio portion of the CD was very poorly produced, and in most cases, the songs were either corrupted or of low quality (as if downloaded as an MP3 and then burned on the CD). This bootleg has very elaborate and professional looking artwork, with a silk screened, factory pressed CD and a fold out booklet with a small biography (which mostly rambles on about the 'Christian band' controversy).

The CD contained 'Bonus Tracks' such as Missing (which is very corrupted and of extremely low quality), the Nirvana cover 'Heart-Shaped Box', and a [rather bad] trance remix of Bring Me To Life.

The CD itself has a red silkscreen with black bird design with the word "sorry" on it. The jewel case has a gothic red design with a speckled face on the back along with the track listing. The inside tray artwork has an image of the band (the one from the booklet in Fallen). The cover has a skull design that is similar to the actual album released by the band. The most noticeable difference is the Evanescence Logo, which is pointy and unlike any design officially released by the band.

On the back artwork the fine print/credits are actually copied from the back of Fallen.
Modern Bootlegs
Authentic ("All rights") and Fake ("All right")
Authentic printing vs. inferior bootleg

Recently, bootlegs are now becoming harder and harder to distinguish from the real thing. The authentic artwork, distinctive CD numbers and tracklisting--right down to the hidden outtake track--are all present and in (apparently) extremely good quality. There is some speculation that someone from Bigwig Enterprises is producing these items because of their immaculate authenticity, but this cannot be verified. Either way, these bootlegs are saturating the online auction market and making it nearly impossible to acquire a real copy of the album. They usually sell for around $40-$60 on eBay. There are two ways to tell that a copy of Origin is fake. It will have a brownish hue to the album art where real copies are pure black or when you look on the page that says "Evanescence is:" David Hodges will be spelled incorrectly as David Hodgos.

September 13, 2009 - Confirmation from a graphic artist who worked for BigWig is that BigWig did reprint Origin after the original 2500 copies. The original 2500 copies have the BigWig code BWE0002 X0A21C and the IFPI code on the inner ring of the CD. The reprinted version only have the BigWig code BWE0002 X0A21C on the inner ring. Also, the reprinted art and CD are high resolution scans of the original CD artwork, causing them to be less sharp and the brownish hue. These reprinted copies, like the original 2500, were not released wrapped or sealed, so you can still distinguish many of the other counterfeit copies of Origin on the market if they are being sold as 'sealed'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Apocalyptica Worlds : Collide Deluxe Edition Cd/Dvd, 28 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I only bought this album because i collect limited or special or deluxe editions of cd albums

also i bought this album purely for the song ( I don't care ) because it features Adam gontier Of Three Days Grace on it as I'm a Hugh fan of Three days grace the album it self is great it's totally different from the other types of music i tend to listen too but i like this album i also like the songs - I'm not Jesus featuring Corey Taylor of Slipknot & Stone sour and S.O.S ( Anything but love ) Featuring Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil .so if you like any of these bands it's worth the money just for more music by them :)

the others songs are also awesome but like i said I'm not a Hugh fan of this type of music but still it's a good album to listen too

also it has 2 bonus track songs

Ural
Dreamer

the dvd features

I'm not Jesus ( Music Video )

The making of I'm Not Jesus (Music Video )

Interview of Apocalyptica and Corey Taylor but mostly apocalyptica

photo gallery

all in all not a bad album

BUT IF YOUR NOT A MASSIVE FAN OF ANY OF THE BANDS I MENTIONED ! OR EVEN APOCALYPTICA then i would recommend just buying the regular version

BUT IF YOU ARE A MASSIVE FAN OF APOCALYPTICA THEN IT'S A MUST BUY :)

Last To Know :
It has a different feel to anything else they have done with a much softer sound and voice one of the best song's by them in my opinion it also has piano playing which you haven't heard from them in previous albums but it's still got the Guitar Sound and drums Adam makes this song his own and just an amazing song .

3.0 out of 5 stars Steps Gold Greatest Hits, 9 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gold: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Steps is an old band that accrued in the 90's. Although they were quite popular mostly for kids they are no doubt one of the
best pop groups of the 90's apart from the spice girls of course. I brought this Cd because i had a load of old Cd's .which included a few steps albums . So i thought I'd by the greatest hits .so i could throw away those albums so i end up with just one CD of steps .The album it self is quite good it has most of the bands number 1's including Tragedy , heartbeat 5,6,7,8 ,
better best forgotten , one for sorrow , stomp , deeper shade of blue , it's the way you make me feel , say you'll be mine ,
here and now and other great songs . This would be great for kids if your buying for your kids ! perfect for children's parties

5.0 out of 5 stars The X Files - Complete Collection [ Dvd ], 29 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The x Files was truly one of the best sci fi shows of all time , Special Agent Dana Scully & Special Agent Fox Mulder are two iconic on screen parnters of investigation in television history.Focusing on cases such alien abduction ,hauntings , monsters
, the weird and strange .All thou half the story's are based on mulders younger sister samanther who he belives to be an abductee . but saying that it goes well with the story lines based around half the alien investigations they investagate.
The dvd box set it self is not to large so no worries about finding a space for it , the outta package is a standard box with pictures from the show all thou it's not that brilliant . The dvds are in a standard cases that fit into the box .whicth is handy for carrying around .One more thing when they say the complete collection it does not come with all the x files movies just the tv shows and a dvd rom that you can play on your computer .
