ATLAS SHRUGGED - Full Leak Discussion Thread **NO LINKS, NO ASKING / HINTING FOR LEAKS**

That's what I was wondering! Right before the cellphone clip cuts out, I swear I heard a lil guitar riff that sounded quite nice in that part of the song behind Axls vocals. Good catch with the synth, too. I didn't notice it. Headphones make it much more enjoyable and easier to spot the difference's. 

This drums up version is quite good!  I didn't even really care for the song at first, either. It really does grow on ya.

Particularly When Axl jumps into second part of the song at the 1:41 mark there is a pretty kick ass/kinda pretty synth thing going on that I really dig, and sounds wonderful as Axls singing the line "To be half as strong, to still belong". Man. What a difference this version and a few additional listens can make.

So it doesn't really sound as we, or at least I expected it to. But I say that's a good thing. We can't expect art to work around our expectations. Atlas drums up = 9 outta 10 for me. 

This is most likely from the rough mixes cd, this version has not leaked apart from cell phone snippet.

Where did the version that leaked come from if not the CD's?

The standard mix and drums up mix are from the CDs.

Drums down isn't from the CDs, because it's imsorry's mix (fanmade). The real one hasn't leaked.

So I’ve decided I fucking love this song. Such a groovy tune. 

I really like it too. Overall I like HS and AS equally.

Yeah, this new version and a few listens really did the trick. I hope they record it properly.

Also: someone figured out the lyrics?

Yeah, it's not something that would stick in the mainstream, but whatever, those of us who dug Chinese tend to like weirder more experimental music from Axl anyway so win win for us. Freese's drumming is amazing in this one.

And  Hardschool is just a rowdy little rocker that goes exactly the way I hoped it would after first hearing the clip years back. Heavy rasp from Axl, catchy chorus, what more could you ask?

Axl mentioned that they were still trying to get the mix right back during his 2008 chats, so I imagine the final version (if there ever is one) will be pretty different. For better or worse remains to be seen.

The Atlas Shrugged CD from the locker contained 3 versions. Drums regular level, Drums up, and Drums down.

Drums Up mix is good; the song still feels like it's missing something like a verse or an extended guitar solo, but it has potential to be a classic.

I know. The drums down mix from the CD hasn't leaked, the one that is circulating is imsorry's mix.

I can't tell a difference between the first leaked and the drums up versions beyond the first version is (very, very) slightly louder

The vocals sound clearer and more understandable to me on the drums up Version, but that could just be my mind playing tricks on me.

Can someone post again the 2002 clip of Axl doing a live piano solo that’s supposedly atlas? Don’t feel like digging for it and forgot to save it last time.

At first this one seemed kinda strange song to me but the more I have listened to it the more I'm liking it. The part which starts "I'll be the last to say..."  is probably my favorite part of the song (plus the melodic intro). The vocal melodies remind me of Catcher for instance. It could be interesting to hear a fully mixed & mastered version of this with Slash & Duff!
