I think it's interessant to know what are the best versions of SB songs.. According to me :

- songs better in SB :
Locked Away, Saturnine, The Mirror Waters, In Motion part II, Eléanor (I hate the original), Like Fountains

- both :
Amity, Red is a slow colour (but I prefer the final of SB version), Stonegarden.. the other are too similar with the original

I think no songs are bad, except maybe the only unpublished, Sleepy Buildings..

I think all the pre-Anneke songs are way better.... I prefer this version of Locked Away as well! :)

Saturnine is my fave SB tracks.. but it is no way as great as the original one (my opinion).
I feel the same for any SB songs.
They are just semi accoustic ones and they don't sound authentic.

So, ass kisser or not, I do prefer any TG originals (any music era, enjoying Always and oldies very much)... and live!

I go for Sleepy Buildings album only when I'm in the mood for it.

Locked Away gained something to be stripped I think.. it's the only htmap? song that I may skip while listening to it...

And well Like Fountains was probably the best song of Almost a Dance and this way it became a pearl...
Alwyas songs also are the most surprising metamorphosis due to the fact their were really death/doom songs.. but they're as good as originals.. but I'd understand someone who's not into grunting would prefer those ;)

I agree - except I prefer the original version of Locked Away, though there's not a lot in it.

I voted for the three pre-Anneke songs on Sleepy Buildings. I've listened to the early albums, but they just don't work for me. With the SB treatment, it gave me the chance to revisit the songs - and "Like Fountains" is particularly brilliant. (Early fans may hate it, but that's cool too.)

I don't know if I prefer some of those versions... SB is an acceptable album anyway... except for a big thing... they simply destroyed the mirror waters and stonegarden... there're some live versions of these songs with anneke but with original doom-metal music arrangements, and it sounded great to me.... but sb versions are horrible.

ok.. it was a semi acoustic album, that's true... but I had preferred they were not including these songs then... since when they played them in their later concerts, they used sb version :-? ... this way the whole essence of "Always" got lost definitively.... that power and darkness are not there anymore....

whatever... :wink:
