I always assumed that differences between promo copies and the final album were down to the promo copies being early releases of a product that hasn't been 100% finalised yet. (Just like when a demo for a computer game isn't quite the final product, because there are a few finishing touches/bug fixes to be made between the demo being sent off and gold master)

Sometimes there ARE differences in the songs when a promo is leaked compared to the final "street" version of the album. For instance, the ALIEN promo has a few differences, one of those being the track LOVE?. the promo version of the album has a much longer version of the track. The other track that stands out as being different than the actual release is the track WE RIDE. Towards the end of the track on the final version, there is a guitar solo that comes in almost at the end of the track, while the version on the promo album does not have that guitar solo. I personally love the fuck out of the promo version without the solo, so when I bought the album and ripped it to my zune, I added the extended version of LOVE? and the version of WE RIDE without the solo as 2 bonus tracks. But for the most part, I never notice any differences between PROMO & FINAL versions of albums. I'm actually curious to know if anyone else in here knows of any other differences like the ones I'm referring to here.

On the Ziltoid promo he says "Phooey, indeed, phooey" and on the final he says "Phooey, and double phooey" or something, I believe. Never heard the promo though.

Occasionally the promos have a different master. This was the case on Oceansize's Frames album. Since the band disagreed with the master a few time, time pressure forced them to send out a non-perfect master as promo.

Oh and bonus tracks usually aren't included on promos.

Yeah, I think I like the promo version, too. I think I know why it was changed, likely to cut off fat, improve the song flow, etc...
But once I heard what was taken out, I just kinda need it there. That was some great ear candy.

Hopefully Ghost won't leak anytime soon as much as I want to hear it. Devy said it was practically done. That box set will be insane. All of the fucking stems for the 4 albums by DTP, Pro-Tools and shit. And for around $50.00, according to Devin? Fantastic! No thanks to the super limited set, I don't have $1000.00 for that man. hahaha.

Someone in one of the live review threads said they talked to Devin about the box set.
