Comment[edit]

This reads a lot like a review of the CD, more than an encyclopedia entry Earl Andrew 05:37, 9 Mar 2004 (UTC)

I very much agree :P I wrote this when I was very very new to Wikipedia. I'll rewrite it, I promise :) Sarge Baldy 09:01, Mar 9, 2004 (UTC)

Orchestral Intro on White Flag[edit]

Does anyone know if those few seconds at the beginning were written for the song, or lifted from elsewhere? - Darkhawk

A Bonus Track[edit]

I've heard of a bonus track on some editions or promos. Can anyone confirm this and name the song?

answer[edit]

The 12th (last) track on LIFE FOR RENT is a "bonus track", it seems; I am not sure of the name but it seems a continuation of 11th track. I found it by accident after seeing what appeared as a scratch on CD, which I assumed caused the 2-3 minutes of silence. Today, after splicing the tracks together I found realised that it may have been a "bonus track."

Enjoy! --Shelli

Yes, the song "Closer" follows "See the Sun". The minutes of silence are deliberate, though they irritate me greatly. By the by, I just noticed it's not on the "List of albums containing hidden tracks". Adding that now. Octavo 04:55, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Closer[edit]

Closer is the bonus/hidden track, but what's the background of this song? It doesn't sound like a high quality studio recording to me. Does anyone know?

copy protection[edit]

does it contain sony's rootkit thing?

Orphaned references in Life for Rent[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Life for Rent's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "guardian":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 04:16, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

Sells in week vs. 5 days[edit]

'It sold one million in 5 days, on the way there it sold 102,500 on day one and 400,351 in the first week on its way to the record.' Err, what? It sold 1,000,000 in 5 days, but only 400,351 in 7 days (a week)? 82.141.125.162 (talk) 00:51, 17 August 2010 (UTC) Fixed TbhotchTalk C. 01:00, 17 August 2010 (UTC)
