I think this CD was definitely worth the wait. Whats really cool is you can see the hints that the Cassino concept was in the works even before Northstar disbanded. Broken Parachute (alternate version) The alternate version of Broken Parachute is awesome, it really shows what a difference a little production and guidance can do, the sound quality alone makes it seem like is could have been on Pollyanna instead of ITTL. My Ricochet (alternate version) This is actually an acoustic version of the song, and I find it interesting taht they decided to call this an "alternate version" instead of simply an acoustic version because Nick has been quoted as saying that the Northstar songs were being lost in loud distorted guitars. This song really shines acoustically. For Members Only (alternate version) Antoher acoustic version, and a perfect example of what Nick mean when he said the songs were being lost in the loud guitars, this song takes on a whole new light acoustically, the once energetic album opener is now more of a soothing ballad. This really reminded me of what Cassino eventually ended up being. Chesterfield King This is actually a Jawbreaker cover, and Northstar take the abrasiveness of the original and turn it into another beautiful acoustic ballad, Nick sings the song like it's his own. Actually my favorite track. Piano Jam - instrumental This is just a great little piano piece that shows that Northstar were really talented musically as well and can move you with just the music alone without needing words. IITL Demos (Take Not a Giver, Is This Thing Loaded, Broken Parachute) These are basically almost identical to the versions on ITTL with the exception of the production (which is surprisingly good). What stuns me about these demos is the consistency of how the band plays the songs. Sometimes demos can be just crappy under underproduced blatantly unfinished songs, but these really show the band's attention to detail and perfection in their songs. Black Heart Valentine - instrumental This is actually an instruemntal piano only version of black heart valentine, again proving Northstar had a lot more to offer than just loud guitars and energetic shows. Really beautiful. If you liked Northstar at all or Cassino now (chances are you probably like both) then you really need to pick this up, hands down, it really shows that transition and kind of closes the chapter on Northstar and opens the new page to Cassino, it did for me at least.
