I just listened to the EP and...oh my god, what the fuck is this? Leads are way too loud in the mix and should have been brought down by at least a few dB. The vocals don't sound like they were properly blended into the mix either, they stick out like a sore thumb. The songs themselves are just...ugh. Totally neutered and full of changes or reworks that don't serve to elevate the song. Drums sound flat and lifeless, but the performance is good for what it is assuming that they're not just MIDI tracks. The S&A portion of the medley was nice, and the new lead part Bjorn plays before the pre-chorus in OFTW is the only positive change to the original. That's about the only nice thing I can say about this. I'm starting to find the theory that Anders and Bjorn were roped into re-recording these tracks more credible, because this seems like a very calculated effort to make these songs sound as shitty as possible. I literally cannot think of any other reason why these songs sound as bad as they are. Either that or they are hilariously, ironically out of touch.
