So i was excited when i read that he is working with Incubus. Then Skrillex came, and you all know the rest of the story. So i hope that one day we will hear the Dave Sardy version of "8". I'd like to. Maybe on a 10th or 20th anniversary bonus disc. :D

I think skrillex was both hit and miss. Some songs benefited whereas others didn't. I'd like to know how much impact he had on every track to get a good feel for what he did.

I don't get the Skrillex bashing, the only song we know his influence on is Nimble. Which is surely not enough to bash his whole impact on the record.

I really like this album. It also challenges me to run 5 miles before it ends. Also, has anyone actually listened to 'Undefeated'? That song is extremely inspirational.

People call me crazy for saying I like that song more than SOTA, but I do. Is it my favorite song on '8'? No, but it's a beautiful track. It pulls on the old heart strings.

After hearing Nimble Bastard live, I definitely prefer the original mix... The guitar just sounds more full.
I have to be leaving, but I won't let that come between us.

Just noticed this but the beginning of undefeated sounds like the whales at the beginning of the warmth ... am I alone in this?

Does anyone here have the original Nimble Bastard track still? It seems to have been scrubbed out of my library and I wouldn't mind giving it another listen. PM please.

This was the version that was first released, then the band went back into the studio and re-mixed the song (and most of the album) with Sonny/Skrillex.
