Open Your Eyes (Alternate Version)

Postby TomiT14 on Mon Oct 06, 2014 9:58 pm

Deryck has released an alternate version of Open Your Eyes on his website!

(Seems like it doesn't work for me on Firefox, but Chrome is good to go!)

I can see why the solo changed. This solo doesn't have the same vibe as the rest of the song.
Also funny how Deryck says he has a pile of unreleased stuff, yet when I asked him about it a while ago he said he doesn't have much of them left anymore. Luckily he proved it otherwise! :glad:

It might be because I'm used to the old version, or should I say cd version? I agree this solo feels out of place here

I love how obviously raw the mix sounds like. It actually makes the final Open Your Eyes version seem over processed.

I can't believe that the March of the dogs solo actually were that solo! The songs are so different to me >_<!

For some reason Open Your Eyes has always been one of my least favourite Sum 41 songs. The demo helped me see this song in a different light, although I feel the solo definitely fits March of the Dogs better. Had they kept the original solo in Open Your Eyes, however, maybe I'd have enjoyed it more.

Once again, I hope Deryck keeps posting these kinds of updates, or better yet, demos/parts of new Sum 41 songs!

Is fucking amazing dude, I love this demo the raw mix it's so perfect, and the solo part from March Of The Dogs, really this is a good demo. I hope he keep posting more old/new Sum 41 demos, we need this kind of stuff.

It's funny. It was always one of my favourite sum 41 songs. Don't know what it is though...something about the melody of the chorus.

Anyway the demo is awesome. I need more!!!

Can't agree more, this solo almost feels out of place in this one. But I like this 'raw' mix. Now I understand what Deryck means when he says he is using ideas from previous albums. ^^

Remember this from 2012?

I knew there was more excitement and heaviness in that record that didn’t come through on the final mixes. So once we figure out the business side of it I would love to put that out as soon as possible with a bunch of extra shit, like photos, demos, documentary, etc.

So maybe more demos are coming! :glad:

By the way, can I post a download link of the song in the media section or isn't that allowed due to copyright infringement or something like that?

Kinda late for a 10 year anniversary re-release. It's been 12 years already LOL.
Well we know what soon means in Sum 41 terminology :winkwink:

That should be allowed since the file is publicly available on Deryck's site, and because it technically gets copied to every computer it's being played back on.

I can agree with that. The chorus is my favourite part of that song too.

Wow, I'm not sure what I was doing when this was originally posted, but I had gotten super excited when I scrolled through and read a portion of this post. Too bad it's from 2012... A remixed Does This Look Infected would be amazing. I agree with Deryck about the sound of that album. The instruments just didn't sound "authentic" and almost too polished. Fingers crossed this is still in the works and hasn't been put on the back burner indefinitely.

Open Your Eyes is one of my top tracks from Chuck. It's definitely a better fit for March of the Dogs than it is here. As mentioned, it doesn't suit the rest of the song, as if it's seemingly out of place. It's cool how we got some unreleased stuff seeing as tomorrow marks 10 years since this album was released.

And someone needs to remind Deryck about remixing DTLI again. I need it, but more so all the "extra shit".
