View Full Version : Dirty Magic versions

02-02-2006, 02:30 AM
I decided to make this a thread (started in Woodstock 99 Videos thread)


What do you think about this live performance of Dirty Magic? I reckon it sounds really cool possible better than the normal one.

Its faster
Bass sounds different (they're both good)
Guitars sound different (they're both good)
Vocals sound different (similar too acoustic version but not as strong accent, they're both good)


Your views...

I voted original, but this live version sounds also great, good quality.

02-02-2006, 02:52 AM
Yeah and I think they might have cut off the audience when the song plays (they can do that right?).

02-02-2006, 03:06 AM
Oh my god... that live one is friggin awesome, it's so much more powerful live, i want to see it live in concert now!

02-02-2006, 05:40 AM
yea me too. sad that dont play older songs anymore. But hopefully they will play dirty magic live in the future, now when they have revived the song with the dualdisc

that live one is waaay better, is so......fast

02-02-2006, 08:30 AM
Exactly what i ment, it's got a really powerful feel to it.

I have this version on MP3

I love the orginal, live and acoustic..

02-02-2006, 12:11 PM
same i love all, but dat 1 Rocked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

02-02-2006, 04:30 PM
Yeah I've got the mp3 of that one, too.. the live version is really great, but I like the slow, almost dragging depressing sound of the original. It's not like everything else in the original... the live version sounds a lot more like typical Offspring. I love it when they break their own norm. :)

02-02-2006, 06:14 PM
dude the live one fuckin rocks, its way more faster and better

02-02-2006, 07:11 PM
Woah, thanks for posting that, the live version was amazing there, the acoustic version is also great....and the recording is a master peice...I cant decide :o

02-02-2006, 07:14 PM
Could someone upload that to savefile for me or something? It is really awesome, but i still think the original is better.

they're both good but i like everything better live

02-02-2006, 10:15 PM
why didnt anyone include the acoustic version in the poll???

the live one is pretty cool....but my vote goes for the acoustic version :cool:

02-02-2006, 10:22 PM
Yeah sorry, I didn't think of that at the time. But mainly I wanted to compare the original against the live one.

02-02-2006, 10:47 PM
ooh someone should post the acoustic version. Love to hear that.

02-02-2006, 10:51 PM
Do you mean give a link to the acoustic version or make a poll with it as well?

02-02-2006, 10:57 PM
sorry, post a link to it, please :)

02-02-2006, 11:00 PM

There you go, it's also got a lot of other rare songs by the offspring.

02-02-2006, 11:17 PM
oh thanks. yeah this acoustic version trumps as my favorite version... I think by a lot...

02-03-2006, 01:49 AM
I've finally decided :p that the live one is better. It get's me pumped because it's heavier and faster. Guitars and bass sound awesome. Vocals are cool.

The Live version It's really cool and kick ass hehe. But I still prefer the Original :D

03-05-2006, 01:50 AM
OMG, this rocks!! It makes the first one seem, well it doesn't but i prefer this one by quite a large margin

I've got the live video of that mp3 (the first one we are voting with). It's even better (although the sound isn't as good). I may have to download that whole mp3 concert. Dexter plays the electric guitar and noodles the acoustic in dirty magic, just incase you were wondering.

EDIT: What a scam, they only have about a third of the concert in mp3. They play heaps of rare songs there, like "problems, rivers" by who i don't know, and pretty much all smash, with about 6 songs off ignition and smash it up.

The live version is better to me. Its faster and sounds different. The original version I love but.....It's alittle slow.
