Shouldn't "I AM" be the first track? Just curious.

Nope. International releases sometimes have changed track lists. Best example I can think of is Extol's Undeceived. I got it while here in Thailand, turns out it was the European release. So the song 'Undeceived' is before 'Inferno' (which opened on the American release).

I don't suppose we'll be able to get the bonus tracks without buying the import?

Someday down the road (just like with Wages of Sin). The tracks have to be exclusive to Japan for quite a while or else you can't release an album in Japan. That's just the music business reality.

I thought as much. Oh well.....shortly after the release, I'll have a disposable income again (summer job), so I'll see what I can do about an import.

I guess in a year or 2 this version will be released here in North Anerica as a digibook with the 2 extra songs and I will probably get it. I am interested in hearing the Neal Morse tune though. He as some good stuff out. I need to get me some Neal Moerse tunes as I don't have any.

Funny...I googled the Neal Morse song (Neal Morse's version, that is), but couldn't find it anywhere.

It's part of an epic track called "The Separated Man."

Ah, I found it now.

It sounded good, but it didn't sound like Theocracy's style. I assume you guys made it somewhat heavier, right?

I like this tracklisting a lot better. For me at least, I AM seemed a natural answer to As the World Bleeds.

Can't wait to hear the bonus tracks.

Agreed. The piano at the end felt like the perfect ending. I was kinda disappointed that it was first. Maybe I'll re-arrange it to match the other "official" track list.

I personally liked the track listing for the other one. I Am is a pretty epic introduction, and As the World Bleeds is a good one to leave you with to think about when it's over.

Not saying this one is bad, just saying I don't/wouldn't mind it either way. BUT (lol) I do like ours for the reasons above. And just to add, i'm happy to have all those songs on one CD =D like i'm sure every one else is.

I'm looking forward to them other songs too!

I can hardly even look at the new tracklisting. It's too painful and I'll just drive myself insane...I can't even bear to think about people experiencing it that way.

I like the original one better, personally, but I think for fans that maybe aren't already familiar with Theocracy, The Master Storyteller is a better introduction than I AM. So I guess it has functionality. Lol

I don't know, FABT; I AM is one of only two Theocracy songs that nobody I've showed it to has ever not loved. My mom liked it, and she doesn't like metal at all. An online friend in her 60s likes it, and she definitely doesn't like metal at all. I AM is one of those songs that everyone seems to like. It's a wonderful introduction to Theocracy.

For people not looking for metal, I'd agree......but if I were to try to get someone that's already a metal fan into Theocracy, I AM isn't the song I'd use.

100% agree. It all depends on the audience. When I'm introducing the band to non-metal folk, I'd go to I AM immediately. But for a typical metal fan who doesn't know Theocracy? There's a lot of other songs that would be a better introduction. Now for a Christian metalhead who looks for Christian bands? Yeah, then I'd probably be back to I AM

I have VERY FEW friends who are metal fans, so I rarely think with that mindset.

I have very few friends who like music that isn't pop, so I rarely think with the mindset of actually introducing Theocracy to any of them :P
