ALTERNATES/ MIX DIFFERENCES:

  • Look Around - Rock Band DLC
    On the Rock Band DLC, the recording of Look Around contains its original intro - which is also played live by the band (which Josh will sometimes incorporate some interesting teases into).
  • Ethiopia - Unreleased
    Prior to release, Ethiopia had a saxophone solo performed by Joshua Redman, most likely during the bridge. This was either deleted or the song was edited down.
