Does anyone else make custom versions of albums? If so, share them here!

What I mean by this is removing the "filler" from a double album, reworking the track listing, adding in b-sides, cutting an album down to an EP, etc. To some this may be blasphemy, but there are many times when I'm listening to an album and think "they should have done this!" Anyway, I enjoy doing it. Here are some examples of some that I have done:

Say Anything - In Defense of the Genre
Track listing1. Skinny, Mean Man
2. No Soul
3. The Word You Wield
4. Surgically Removing the Tracking Device
5. Vexed
6. This Is Fucking Ecstasy
7. The Church Channel
8. Shiksa (Girlfriend)
9. Baby Girl, I'm a Blur
10. About Falling
11. People Like You Are Why People Like Me Exist
12. You're the Wanker, If Anyone Is
13. Spores
14. An Insult to the Dead
15. Sorry, Dudes. My Bad.


Taking Back Sunday - New Again [EP]
Track listing1. Sink into Me
2. Lonely, Lonely
3. Cut Me Up Jenny
4. Catholic Knees
5. Everything Must Go


Taking Back Sunday - Tell All Your Friends
Additional track11. Your Own Disaster


The Early November - The Mother, The Mechanic, The Path
Part 11. My Lack of Skill
2. Money in His Hand
3. Hair
4. The Rest of My Life
5. Decoration [The Mechanic version]
6. A Little More Time
7. Little Black Heart
8. No Good at Saying Sorry (One More Chance)
9. Driving South
10. This Wasn't in Our Plan

Part 21. Runaway
2. The One That You Hated
3. The Truth Is
4. Outside
5. Decoration [The Path version]
6. Make a Decision
7. Never Coming Back
8. The Car in 20
9. Runaway II
10. Figure It Out
11. 1000 Times a Day


Thrice - The Alchemy Index
Track listing1. Firebreather
2. The Sky Is Falling
3. Digital Sea
4. Come All You Weary
5. Burn the Fleet
6. Open Water
7. Moving Mountains
8. The Arsonist
9. Night Diving
10. Digging My Own Grave
11. The Flame Deluge


Not really mix tapes, but I figured this was the best forum for this. And I apologize in advance if this thread has been done before.

Looks like a fun idea. Though I haven't thought of doing something like this as often as I used to.

Good idea. The label forcing that song onto the album is what's wrong with the music industry. I wish they had recorded "Uphill Battle," too.

First time I appreciated "Uphill Battle" actually. I must've confused that song with another one for a long time. There were some great ideas that were left off the album (the last track of the instrumental demos, for one).

This is a good idea, but there were still a couple more good tracks on that album. How about if SYG had made Burning At Both Ends, got rid of the filler, and then added the two songs they just did with Chad Gilbert

Set Your Goals - Burned At Both Ends 2.0

Such a cool idea to share custom albums and EPs. I can dig what you did with it by the way.

I've got one like this where I tried to trim the track listing up and make the "story" flow a bit better. Only managed to cut two songs though. Like what you did.
