You should all know the story by now. Little band come out of the Welsh valleys, rip a gaping hole in the current Nu-Metal scene, record a ferocious debut record and proceed to follow world domination. The band in question are the Lost Prophets and the record is ‘The Fake Sound Of Progress’. Bringing you up to the speed with the saga, the American labels fight over the band, Columbia win the tug-of-war and, instead of getting some more world-beating music recorded, decide to get the band to re-record the amazing debut.
‘What’s the point?’ You ask and it’s an un-answerable question, because there was no point. The alterations made are minimal and, if anything, they’ve watered down the original rage from the first recording. If you haven’t got this record yet, buy it this instant because the quality of the content is unmissable. If you do own the original, spend your cash elsewhere.
