Such a good listen.
It's really cool to think about the progression of things...the creative process is amazing. These recordings show the start of some truly great songs, yet in the actual execution, they are somewhat unrefined and unsolidified. Like in the Lack of Color demo - when I learned that song on guitar (so long ago...), I always hit that nasty open string by accident. Lo and behold, the same mistake comes out loud and clear in the demo (1:02, 2:56, eg.), even though it's never heard in the final recording, which is, in my mind, perfect.
