  1. Ohh ok - I think I found out how I got them now that you mention they weren't there to begin with. I wanted just FLAC (no MQA stuff) and I had bought it fully from TIDAL - thank you for that link to buy all of the alternate version with no MQA!
  2. Thanks for the information! I asked with HDTracks because I could no longer see them [even with a VPN] either but did find something interesting going into my own collection - I have a "MTM" deluxe with the "NRL and "ATL" as bonus tracks. The majority of the album is in 24bit 48khz FLAC except those last two they're just regular 16bit 44.1khz FLAC (I tested the whole album and it's real FLAC as far as I can see. It's definitely a digital purchase too) so maybe I bought it when they were originally released back then on HDTracks. I compared each of the three songs to the ones from the YouTube links that were posted and these are definitely the alternate versions! Regardless of the quality of the changes I still like to have them as a collector in lossless form... just didn't realize they existed like that and only through lossy tracks on iTunes 😅 Where they only on HDTracks (NRL & ATL) for a very short amount of time? Before the whole "Mastered for iTunes" stuff happened?
  3. So if I had the Tour Edition of MTM I'd still have the original "SOTD" and "NRL", same with the LPU9 CD and Across The Line? Then I could purchase the alternate versions of all 3 of these songs on HDTracks to have both the original and alternate versions?
  4. But did they stop with the sole purpose being "no more demos ever" or was there any actual reason given? It's understandable due to Chester's passing and It might not happen directly like Blue said, however, charity isn't a bad idea. Given enough time really anything is possible - I don't know why there'd be little to no chance of that ever happening when a decade ago everyone thought hearing Pictureboard at all was in the same boat.
  5. I really enjoy the Xero era for some reason. Before the Rapology leaks we hardly had anything to go on, except the demo tape. The era was so mysterious! Now, post HT20, there's been so many Xero demos released, both officially and unofficially, that we have a clearer picture of the band and their sound from 1996-1998. Personally, I think that's really awesome - regardless of the actual quality of the songs. It's just nice to have examples of their history and roots. I know some don't like most of the Xero demos (the band included lol) but I don't think that should really determine whether something gets released or not and in the past it hasn't stopped glorious bangers such as "Dave Sbeat feat. Joe," Mike's 2002 Breaking the Habit demo, and (as others have said) Pods from being released. I'm not complaining either because even though those songs don't sound amazing they're still nice to have, especially for hard-core fans and collectors like many of us here. Now that we know about Deftest and Spark Marker(?) It gives me something to look forward to leaking one day because I do genuinely think Xero is fun to listen to and that it's good for that type of history to be preserved! Plus there's speculated demos such as Slip w/Mark, Stick N Move (Studio recording) w/Mark, and of course a better quality rip of Pictureboard w/Mark that have a pretty solid chance at existing and hopefully being leaked one day.
