Was this ever uploaded anywhere else? It was on Megaupload according to some links I found searching, but they're all dead now because the FBI took Megaupload down. Is there another place to download this from? I was excited to listen to it when I found the thread and it sounds like it's worth a listen but the link is dead :dammit:

In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court
for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a
maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today,
still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune.
If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
them - maybe you can hire: The Monty (MonteIT.com*).

there's on the first page. at first, when you click it, you might think you have stumbled across some horror of horrors involving the 'lemons' of aged nude men.

ignore this ignorant reaction. if you keep staring at the screen for several moments, a new link will pop up which will lead you to vault of tsp gems, including but not limited to: the metro dvd, the chicago songs, pre-gish senescentness, an adore with jimmy, etc etc.

high-quality m4a's, for what it's worth. differences are pretty subtle unless you're a/b'ing, since the mixes themselves have quite a finalized sound to them compared to some. but if you compare even one with its mastered version you'll notice the distinctions pretty quickly

Tracks:
1. The Everlasting Gaze
2. Raindrops + Sunshowers
3. Stand Inside Your Love
4. I of the Mourning
5. The Sacred and Profane
6. Try, Try, Try
7. Heavy Metal Machine
8. This Time

10. Glass and the Ghost Children
11. Wound
12. The Crying Tree of Mercury
13. With Every Light
14. Blue Skies Bring Tears
15. Age of Innocence

Notes:
* On the CD-R, track 6 is missing the last several seconds. The missing
portion has been replaced with the requisite segment from the album as
commercially released.

* Tracks 4 and 7 (and possibly others as well) seem to be missing maybe the
very last 1 or 2 seconds (when compared to the album as commercially
released), but these are at the very end of fadeouts, and thus nothing has
been done to them. In other words: for all tracks except track 6, what you
have here is what is on the CD-R.

* Tracks 5 and 15 are different mixes than on the album as commercially
released.

so this version is just the master mixes, without mastering, is that correct?

listening to sacred+profane now. i remembered it as one of the most compressed tracks on the record, and this mix does sound like it has a little more headroom. some elements are clearer than what i'm used to.

Shallowed
08-28-2015, 04:51 AM
Basically, except for Sacred and Profane and Age of Innocence.

Mals Marola
08-28-2015, 12:13 PM
sacred + profane is still the same mix that's on the album, isn't it? just with that extended intro which was presumably just cut off post-mastering

despite it being very close to the final product, somehow on this promo glass & the ghost children is more of a welcome listen for me
maybe something to do with the less compression benefitting the more dynamic songs on here (it & stand inside, for 2)

teh b0lly!!1
08-28-2015, 09:42 PM
it's all pretty much identical to the album, upon some more listening

i can't really spot a difference. i thought the premixes will be somewhat clearer, but if there's a difference it's negligible as far as i can tell

Mals Marola
08-29-2015, 12:54 AM
a/b it at least once, the difference is more obvious than mellon collie and its remaster - though obv it won't be that apparent just listening to one without the other, since it's purely dynamic/master eq'ing diferences & not really anything taken or added on the production side of things

i have heard masters where the drums sound pretty notably different from the pre-master mix tho

teh b0lly!!1
08-29-2015, 08:45 AM
the mcis reissue was great to me, i heard the difference right away.
more clarity at the top end, no question. i was surprised so many folks complained about it.

Mals Marola
08-29-2015, 12:31 PM
there are some tracks that benefit more than others

i guess i'm still just remembering the first time i'd compared any of 'em & it was bodies and any differences in mastering were very subtle
