Finally the penny drops on why they thought Be Natural was going to be the first single. They really slowed that down and messed that one up in the studio didn't they ? Bass line is great.

Never thought I'd say this either but The Everlasting clearly needed more Naismith.

is Tsunami worth all the hype Nicky has been giving it over the years?

Tsunami is probably the least interesting of the demos because it is basically the live version. Tolerate is also a bit boring as it doesn't sound much different to the single version. The live rehearsal demos are very interesting, particularly Be Natural. I guess this is how it would have sounded had they played it live back in 98.

Having sat with the demo's for an hour or so, I'm not sure how we got TIMT in its final form. Listening to the demos, while having the same structures, the songs sound completely different. It really makes me value the production on the final products. If any of the albums deserve a making of documentary, it's surely TIMT. It really seems like the band completely changed the way they approach music making between these demos and the final album. Where the demos sound like they're rushing, the recorded songs just have this endless quality where they breath for an entirely. I could easily see an album with most of the demo's where Prologue, Montana and Black holes as singles.

"I'm not Working" sounds like it's the song that uses the Coral Electric Sitar that JDB was reputed to be using at the time. I don't know why but I always saw that as a keyboard part before.

Love the drum madness in Be Natural toward the end

Listening to the demo version of “Be Natural” immediately brought this to mind. Skip to 2:46.

https://youtu.be/k9X2QtzCvBQ

Never made that connection before.

Aw, really? That’s pathetic.

Mine’s still not turned up yet.

“Prologue To History” live rehearsal just makes me want to strangle Nasmyth.

The mp3s also say that they were produced in 2013. Don't know if that's an accident or if it's been shelved a while.

Exactly why I haven't bought the physical release. Now I'll admit, I will probably pick this up in the future when it's been reduced as the artwork looks gorgeous. But really, why would I pay the ridiculous price of £35 when I can just listen to it all on Spotify? I've saved myself the cost of going to see them play it live now!

I haven't even got a CD or record player, I had to put the CDs in the DVD player and even that had to be plugged in first!

I buy the boxes mainly to keep the band in operation as I doubt Spotify pays for many mansions.
