I got mine from the local WalMart, last deluxe version available. They had several of the standard cd’s, no TShirt versions.
I was gonna get the itunes version, like I do for most new stuff I buy (which is rare) but wasn’t gonna settle for mp3s on this one!
This cd sounds incredible on the home stereo through my polk audio speakers. MONSTER bass!

OK, VHStore has the vinyl so I bought it. Thank god, I really didn’t want to give my $$$ to ticketbastard.

I fucking knew this was gonna happen AFTER buying it from Live Nation.

Absolutely……I was just thinking that to myself earlier today…..I really like the music and can’t believe it is here. After all the speculating and rumors over the last 8-12 months (or even couple years) it is so great to have new music, not be disappointed or find myself scratching my head on some of the tracks like I did on VH III. (See New world, Once, How Many Say I )

Are you saying you were not hoping to see a reworked version of How Many Say I. :o

Vince G.:
I didn’t realize until about an hour ago that in all my excitement I failed to notice that my deluxe edition didn’t come with the bonus DVD as I had originally thought. Guess that means on payday I’ll be forced to buy yet another ADKOT disc. Darn the luck.

It’s too bad that you couldn’t get the Deluxe Version with a Shirt. :(


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

Got it (audio version) @ wallyworld and listened on the weekend. I was not surprised to see four tracks from their demo days with no credit given to Micheal Anthony for his basslines used on those tracks! Kudos to Mike for those.

Maybe Mike should sue them.

I don’t think he could as those may not have been published.
A good record nonetheless.

The way I understand it is that Ed laid down the intricate bass lines…and Wolf learned them in rehearsals. I don’t know that any of the bass on the album is (or isn’t) Wolf. On the flipside…I haven’t taken the CD outta my car since it got released…except to put in my own mix of VH classics…which I listen to a few times…and then back to ADKOT. Live? They need to drop The Trouble With Never…and replace it with Blood and Fire…which they played at The Forum…that song was made to be played live! I also wanna see Stay Frosty and Honeybabysweetiedoll work their way into the set.

Right on. Blood and Fire is my favorite tune on the album.

I like Stay Frosty but there’s no way in hell Dave could get all those lyrics out live – it’d be a disaster. They are messing up by not using Blood and Fire and stopping the show with the house lights on while Dave does his “look at all the people here tonight” shtick. I thought for sure that was the plan with that song. Great guitar solo too.

Haven’t listened to VH’s “A Different Kind of Truth” in about a month, maybe a bit longer. Listening to it again here at the hotel through my Bose in-ear headphones, and it sounds just as fresh and exciting as the day it was released.
