Nah man, not at all. I just think both Whats good for me and girls on top don't really live up to any of the other b sides. E.g. Approaching by stealth, banner, alpha signal five, doll fin, victim, no exit wound, stealing is easy, etc. Just for starters.

They are both good songs, just not amazing

However, I was under the impression that it would never be properly released as Guy didn't agree with the lyrics? Or so my friend and I were informed by Jon.

Loving the single, all three tracks is wick... but does anyone think the production on the two b-sides is a bit... well, rubbish? Snare sounds really thin and empty, the distorted guitar sounds really hollow, the whole thing just sounds a bit iffy to me. Shame, weight of the world is especially awesome.

EDIT:

Any suggestions?

Yes I thought that straight away the guitar sounds like a home recording.
Weight of the world is pretty good but nowhere near the album tracks IMO. Push is still a tune but it's almost exactly the same as the racecar demo one, i had hoped for a more reworked version. But o well there only b-sides.

After having bitched about the production I've looked at the credits and realised I actually know the guy who did the B-sides... whoops...
