first staind album i ever bought was an original copy of tormented off ebay. def my favorite album which i hope to get signed one day to complete my collection. look at the copyright on the back. should say 1996 with some label youve never heard of.
I know this is a severe case of thread revival, but I too have this signed copy of Tormented that you mention below. It states that it is a 1996 Yap'em release. Wonder how many of these are out there? I have to think it can't be many because Steve is the only person I have seen mention it in many years.
Also to what CMiller05 said above, the ORIGINAL release is in fact different. I have a copy of it and it does have all of the differences he mentioned above. Pretty sweet version of a RARE disc.
I have been a Staind fan since I first heard Mudshovel on the radio before the Dysfunction album came out in 99, and still support their music today even though some feel Staind have "sold out". I just see it as a progression of their music with their age... you must remember Aaron is no longer a pissed off 20-something full of angst, he's a Daddy now. And being a Daddy now with 2 daughters of my own, you look at life a lot differently.
Not to make people mad but I bought mine off Staind.com when they re released with it with the whole band signing it. I don't know how many copies were made but I haven't seen one anywhere for sale that's been sign by the whole band.
I forgot to mention, I also posted about the autographed version of Tormented I bought from staind.com a few years ago, but no one responded. See below. It would be cool to know how many on here have this disc.
