Eraserheads The Reunion Concert 08.30.08 CD
I went to the province yesterday November 1, and before that day we received a news from Odyssey Live about their early distribution of the Eraserheads The Reunion Concert 08.30.08 CD ALBUM, and I went crazy after knowing that they will release it two days early of the target November 3 official release date, or maybe they just printed a few copies to see and check on how hot the cake is after 2 months when the real concert happens. Odyssey just released the copies at 12nn of November 1, 2008 and they have 50 pcs of the CD in stock every store, Mark Cerbo texted this to me and just got his copy in Megamall, the CDs are already on display of October 31st, but they are not yet allowed to sell it to the public. The CD is available today in all Odyssey record bar for a price of Php 305. ( read more story and see photos below)
The cover of the cd is sporting a black color theme and dotted matrix text font, the inside of the inlay cover is a page spread of photo gallery of the concert and Eheads, layout done by Arnold and Cynthia Arre. For me the Cd album is like a time capsule were they stored the Philippines greatest and memorable concert of an ultraelectromagneticpop band. Grab it if you missed the concert, Grab it if you love to go back to memory lane of lining up outside the grassy lot of The Fort and kicking butts with bouncers who refuse to let you in if you have a bag of Chippy and mineral water bottle and lastly dying to get a VIP pass care of your networks and band members, and falling in line in front of the ticketnet booth and trying to produce a thousand bucks for two days before the concert. See that? It’s a memory capsule ahahahah., it’s a must have item for all Eheads fan.
The CD album contains 15 tracks, all live and nicely edited. It will be better if they included the whole countdown instead of starting from 5 to 0 countdown. But all I hear is a great mix and balance audio of the music, vocals and effects. This is my 2nd time to hear a live recording of their concert, one of it was the California concert 1999 which I downloaded in schizo’s website, and this is the 1st official of the live Cd for Eheads, just correct me If I’m wrong and I just don’t know if there are other Cd of their live acts.
Many people are still expecting the DVD version of the concert, I’m not sure if they will really release that, but let’s hope that we can open up a Christmas present with a boxful of Eraserheads concert DVD, let’s wait and see if we can hear a news at Odyssey live about this DVD, because people want the video rather than the CD, but the bad side is that I already converted my CD into mp3 and transferred it to my laptop and mp3 player, the CD will be in my library or in my sister’s bag ahhahaha. Let’s just hope that the local pirateers will take advantage of the CD and sell it for only P35 in bangketa’s. Don’t buy pirates and if you saw one, report it here by posting a comment below.
Here's a preview of the music
My favorite tracks in this album are Harana and Lightyears, I just don’t know why I like it, maybe it was given an extended version during their live performance. It’s funny that you can hear the voices of the audience shouting “group hug! Group hug!”, and you’ll listen more of it on track 11 – Kaliwete. The back up vocals and other special effects for the music will be clearly be heard, and when I’m in the concert, I didn’t know that there is such other music effects, or maybe it was added in the editing of this album, or my ear is too weak to capture everything hahahah.
