1. Breathe 4/5
It sounds like a mix of Shadow Zone and WDT songs.
2. Deliver Me 5/5
With addictive lyrics and awesome music, this proves to be one
of the better songs on the CD.
3. Anything But This 4/5
Double bass drums and pulse-pounding singing create a rather
4. S.O.M 2/5
One of my least favorite song on the CD, mostly because
Wayne's voice overpowers all the music.
5. Down 5/5
Definetly from the age of WDT, this is a great song.
6. Head 4/5
It kind of reminds of newer Slipknot music. That's about all
to say for Head.
7. So Real 3/5
It is one of Static-X's more techno-sounding songs.
8. Crash 3/5
Not one of the greater songs, partly because Tony, Tripp,
and Nick aren't in it.
9. Push It (JB's Death Trance Remix) 4/5
Major techno stuff here. Overall, it's just...different.
10. I'm With Stupid (Paul Barker Remix) 5/5
Truly an addictive and awesome song, it's even heavier than
11. Burning Inside 4/5
Fast-paced and really cool, Burton Bell (Fear Factory) does
a really great job.
12. Behind the Wall of Sleep 5/5
While I'm not a fan of Black Sabbath, I'm when they did this,
it sounded nowhere near as good.
13. Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment 5/5
It's kind of funny to hear Static-X do a Ramones cover, but
this is a really great song, and also the fastest song on the
14. I Am (Demo) 4/5
It's great to hear Static-X in the studio, and that's what
this (and the other demos) deliver.
15. Love Dump (Demo) 5/5
This is probably the best-sounding demo on the CD, and one of
the best songs from WDT.
16. Get to the Gone (Demo) 3/5
A good song, but it is also a little dissapointing. But, it's
17. New Pain (Demo) 4/5
In my opinion, it sounds alot better than the actual song.
18. Otsegolectric (Demo) 4/5
Once again, better than the original. It also includes an
appearance by the guy from Monster.
Overall, next to Wisconsin Death Trip, this is their best CD, truly for the hardcore X fan.
A reasonable amount of the CD is similar to the style of "Wisconsin Death Trip". "Beneath Between Beyond" is the perfect addition to any Static-X fan's collection and is solid enough to serve as an introductory album to those unfamiliar with this powerful force of trance-metal.
However, it still only gets 3 stars. Why? Because it's not really anything amazing. The B-sides are good for B-sides, but they're obviously B-sides for a reason. The completely original songs, eight total, are a bit varied, and sort of fit into four two-song sections. The first two tracks, "Breathe" and "Deliver Me" are mediocre suncooked metal tracks that remind me a bit of the Pantera side-project Down. "Anything But This" and "S.O.M." are two of Static-X's heaviest songs and are actually probably my favorites on this album. "Head" and "Down" most resemble Static-X's album tracks and could have fit on Wisconsin Death Trip or Machine, although I'm kind of glad they didn't. Last, "So Real" and "Crash" are largely electronic, harking back to the band's days as an unsigned band when they were more techno than metal.
This part could have made a good little EP by itself, but to satisfy the completionists, they included cover songs, remixes, and a few demos as well. The covers are decent, except the Ramones cover which I don't like because I don't like the Ramones at all.
The remixes aren't very good... all they do is bury the songs under a load of extra electronic noise. I like remixes that completey warp the song and make into an almost entirely new song. These remixes don't accomplish that exactly, and could have been left off without any complaint from me.
The demos are also pretty much worthless. They're just low budget recordings of basically the same songs you hear on the albums. This would have interested me more if it was recordings of their old songs from their formative techno days, but the songs are 100% recognizable. The biggest change is the feel of the drums in "No Pain" (a bit slower) and some parts that are missing (including the death metal intro) in "Get to the Gone."
I would be just as happy with this album if they had dropped the demos and remixes, and even the covers wouldn't be a big loss. If you're not already a fan of the band, this is probably not the place to start. However, I feel it is worth it for the 8 real B-sides in the first half of the CD. Just don't expect anything that compares to the albums.
