I didn't listen to the leaked version that much because I didn't want to become too attached to what may have been unfinished. But I guess we'll never know the whole true story about the material and why it was altered before release.
hmm, no i don't think so. i'm so absolutely pleased with this album, it's been on repeat for two days now. the leaked version of the title track did pop up on my shuffle this morning and i realized that i *might* just lean a little towards that one in preference, but only because i like the pacing of her vocals better in it than on the cd.

i never thought of the material being altered so much as polished before it's release. it all had to do with sony not wanting to release the cd at all.

we do need a tour, badly. i have never seen her live and would love to.

Hey Bonosgirl,

How can I tell if I have the leaked version or the finished version? I just downloaded one (I want to listen before I buy) and I want to make sure its the finisished version.

I am hoping to love it because my wife and I lost a lot of love for Fiona after seeing her live. Hoping it was an off night.

the finished version that i have hasn't been released yet. the release date is october 4th. i just happen to have a very close relative who works for the ceo of sony and was tired of my begging so she sent me an early copy.

there was a very good article in entertainment weekly this week (thank you, zu42) in which fiona explains a lot of where she was coming from before and where she hopes to go. i think we'll be seeing a whole new fiona this time. i completely envy anyone who has seen her live, even if it was an off night.

i love the fact that in her liner notes she thanks "everyone from free fiona."

I saw her live.

In my podunk backwater Pennsylvania hometown, no less. I think it was on the When the Pawn... tour. I really enjoyed the show.

How different is the finished product from what I am listening to? This version seems to lack a bit of her "magic".

Solid - but not spectacular. (of course, this is after two times through. I withhold the right to completely change my opinion at any time. Fickle)

i kind of talked about that in some of my other posts here in this thread.

i can't believe that anyone who hears it won't love it completely.

K - I went back and read the rest of the post. I can't wait to heare the official release. I agree with Laz on this one, its a good solid album, but as of right now I don't think that it is as strong as "When the Pawn". Though my wife (a pianist) is thoroughly digging the piano throughout.

It will be very interesting to see how much the album has changed with a new producer.

wow...ok

earlier this week i had a very long conversation with the very dear HeadsOnSticks (older posters will remember him well), and he insisted that i hear the leaked material before i go around proclaiming the new cd to be "fucking brilliant" and then sent me a copy of the leaked songs.

well, i just finished listening to them, and i'm (not so) sorry, but he was right.

the cd, compared to these eleven songs that i am hearing now, is like, Fiona Lite. it's good - it's very good - but these songs are incredible. the sound is much more raw, less produced, less slick. even window which is my least favorite track on the cd sounds amazing.

lol, this is crazy. now i'm not sure what to think.

plays The Hives: "Hate to say I told you so"...

I'm still dying to hear the "official version".
But as is usually the case, an artist's first instincts are usually their best (e.g. POP new mixes).

Usually, a raw version like this getting over-produced leads to a BRILLIANT live show (you get to hear more of the rawness). Let's hope so at least.

don't get me wrong, i'm not saying i don't still absolutely love the cd, i was just really surprised that there was such a big difference in the sound. i think it's all really quite cool. it's almost like having two cds.

i also like the version of please, please, please much better on the cd.


sweetest, it was leaked on the internet. maybe someone still has a link for her?
