White Crosses/ Black Crosses is the extended version of 2010’s “White Crosses”. The album now comes with the four songs that were previously only included on the limited edition of the original release. While “Lehigh Acres”, “Bob Dylan Dream”, “One By One” and “Bitter Divisions” are not bad songs at all, I can understand why they weren’t included.

The most interesting about this release is the second disc which comes with acoustic versions or alternate takes of the songs before Butch Vig got his hands on them. It’s hard to say which version I prefer but the acoustic versions of songs like “I Was A Teenage Anarchist” and “Because Of The Shame” are definitely worth a listen.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
