Hope it sounds better on the final cd, but I am afraid that this is the 'new' AV sound. A pity for those beautiful songs....
The vinyl will sound better. At least it did with CROG. And the vinyl features early versions of four songs including Handful and they are supposed to be very different.

I hope that the old versions of Handful and Universe still have the original arrangement. The more emotional/ballad approach fits mutch better than the new style based upon the audio clips.

Will there be a special cd edition as well with those bonus tracks?

Where online are you guys finding low res clips to sample the album?

Anxious for the US release- Did some searching and could only find that sneak peek pic from a few days ago.

Also- Anyone have any info on a tour now that Universal is behind them? Would love to see AV back here in the States.

Strange Attractor - New Album

Be assured that StrActor is an awesome piece of work, bringing you everything from the essence of alphaville up to experiments beyond the new horizons. There's so much to discover, you'll be amazed. And no, some low res snippets won't even give you an idea of what's ahead.
Here’s my plan for a journey supreme, board the ship of your follies as soon as U can

Hi 7ven, I already love the snippets I have listened, but my main concern is that I don't own a turn table, so I wish we could buy the LP edition on CD

Don't worry. I am sure rips will be available in the usual places. You won't miss out anyway. Just be sure to buy the CD (I am sure you will). I have the vinyl rip of CROG on my music player.

Song samples can be heard at https://www.jpc.de/jpcng/poprock/det...r/hnum/6436183

might reveal me as a noob, especially as CROG/Vinyl sits in my record collection since a few weeks (and i didn't play it yet): do versions of the songs on the vinyl differ from the cd?

re the bonus tracks on the vinyl: I assume the will not be digitally available (but i might be wrong)
