Hi folks

Received the 2 long awaitet CD singles today (thanks PEJ!!)

Now I will try to write a short review. Comments are very welcome.

1) SOTA (live version)

a) SOTA live
I am very dissapointed. Really.
This is the live version from a gig at the Astoria on 25.05.2005.
The originally played song was about 8 mintutes long. A very good version
with lots of interesting moments.
Unfortunately this CD live version was cutted to a less than 4 minutes piece
that has nothing to do with the
great version from the live gig.
The sound quality is bad. Daves guitar solo sounds like it is comming out of
a telephone connection.
Why not a superb sound like on the YULE RITUAL CD ??

b) PARADOX studio
Very good studio version. Well done. I really like this song !!! Good

2) SOTA (studio version)

a) SOTA studio
I am very pleased. Awesome version. Great mix. Unfortunately to short.
Will the CD version be longer ?? I hope so!!

b) AOA live
No idea from which gig this version comes from.(help is very welcome!!!)
Do not know what to say about this song. Not bad but I know better versions.

c) AA live
This version comes from the Astoria gig 25.05.2003.
Very good version. The band in top form. A highlight !!

All in all 2 very good single CD's with a very weak SOTA live version
because someone did to much editing on that one.
If the original version were chosen, well, it would have been a FANTASTIC
