I'm somewhat a collector of hats anyway, though I would have preferred to be able to wear this one rather than just put it in my closet considering its TWY. Had it been mesh / trucker style - that would've saved it a bit.

So it's not as ugly now that I have it, but it's still pretty tacky. Don't think I'll be wearing it around.

If I can find it when I get home from Europe I'll send it to you since I don't think they make it anymore.

Will I ever get this shiiiiiiiirt?

Any idea why the bitrate is so low, but the file sizes are so big?

Because whoever encoded this is a complete idiot. They embedded a 7MB artwork file into each song.

EDIT: Here's a compressed artwork image for those interested in seeing the new artwork

Huh. Maybe we'll get a 320 download when the actual book arrives?

Yeah, really hoping this is just a "Thanks for being patient, here's an untagged low bitrate encode of the deluxe." If that's the case, then it's cool. But this better not be what they consider the digital download part.

I wasn't aware that 'basement demos' and a 'numetal jam' meant all new songs.

I also wrote a bit more info about the demos in the book. They were all just quickly recorded, obv. The one of Coffee Eyes was recorded live a few days after we started writing. I really wish the book didn't have all these delays. I'll look into the low bitrate shit.

Appreciate you looking into that. Like I said, if this is just to hold us over, then it's perfectly fine - but I was actually just as excited about this deluxe as I was having the book, so I'd like it to be decent quality if this is what the digital download is going to be (yeah I'm an audiophile). Maybe also mention to them to tag it correctly (actually just to tag it AT ALL), and remove that 7MB embedded PNG file. I mean, 7MB x 24 songs = an additional useless 168MB.

As far as the demos, I think they are awesome. And stoked to have a decent version of Me Vs The Highway since my split didn't come with a download card.

I'm told there will be a proper download code with the book with high quality files and all that.

Woot! Jawsome. I can be patient a bit longer. Thanks man.

There are high quality downloads of the 24 track deluxe that can be puchased from here. http://www.qobuz.com/album/suburbia-.../0790692075768

Also you can listen to clips of songs there too.

Haha yeah, I saw that over on WHAT. I wonder if that's a legit retailer - like does Hopeless know they are already offering this unreleased material in full FLAC for ~15$.

So yeah, I'm basically quoting you to get your attention because I had a question. I had an old buddy Brian Moss (formed The Ghost, Olehole, Hanalei) who started a band back in '99 if I remember correctly. His band was initially called The Wonder Years but was like immediately approached and forced to change it to The Wunder Years. I was just curious, how did you guys manage to get away with using the name The Wonder Years. You ever run into any legal stuff, or royalties, or shit like that?

I just got mine today. Cool book, but the download included is only 192kbps. Guess I'll go pirate the FLAC off of WHAT.CD
