Great news that this album is being remastered, though I hope it's not a compression-fest of loudness.

Massively disappointed that the remaster doesn't include B-sides

What the Track List should look like (if this were a well thought out Remaster), but instead it ends as the original album does on 21st Century (Digital Boy):

  1. Incomplete
  2. Leave Mine to Me
  3. Stranger than Ficiton
  4. Tiny Voices
  5. The Handshake
  6. Better Off Dead
  7. Infected
  8. Television
  9. Individual
  10. Hooray For Me...
  11. Slumber
  12. Marked
  13. Inner Logic
  14. What It Is
  15. 21st Century (Digital Boy)
  16. News Front the Front
  17. Leaders and Followers
  18. Mediocrity
  19. Markovian Process

Wow. That is a disappointment!

I could see myself spending money on this if B-sides were included but this feels kinda pointless. To hear the guitar solo in Mediocrity in high quality would be a fucking treat to say the least.

This release will be brickwalled and clipped, prove me wrong Warstub. Please prove me wrong Warstub!

On Amazon.co.uk there's Deluxe edition remastered as digital download http://www.amazon.co.uk/Stranger-Than-Fiction-Deluxe-Remastered/dp/B0788H9JL9/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1516714595&sr=8-2&keywords=bad+religion+stranger+than+fiction+remastered Which has 3 b-sides but no Mediocrity. Fucking lazy and stupid not to include all b-sides on disc.

That's still missing Mediocrity, so no.

Considering how much bitterness, or fighting, over the song list occurred with this album, this remastering seems like the perfect time just to get everyone's songs on the album once and fall all. All four of the B-sides are so good that they deserve a place on the album.

STF is my favorite BR album, I might've bought it again in order to own a vinyl copy but eeeh...no Euro release tracks? I'll pass.

I'm poor as fuck but I would have bought it with merc if it had all B-sides remastered as part of the tracklist,

It's my BR fav too. :)

Brett has stated, and I'm pretty sure Jay has also said, that there was a lot of arguing over the track list. There were objections to 'Hooray For Me...' and Brett was pretty disappointed that 'News From the Front' didn't make the final track list. 

"Bitterness, or fighting..." may have been an exaggeration, but it sounds like there was definitely some hurt feelings going around at the time because of which songs got on and which didn't.

I never listen to STF. I think it's one of the worst BR albums and I don't think a remaster will make me like it more. I do like infected, 21st century, better off dead, slumber and what it is.

This album and the word 'master' are an oxymoron as long as Infected and 21st CDB are involved.

Yeah i get what you want.. the answer does say the same.. usually i am Not to crazy About remasters since i am Not that audiophile.. ans i grew up with the Europa version so the original lp always felt cut Short, even anticlimatic to end with a so'n that originally was on a precious Record.. but i would have spend my Money on a complete Edition without Second thought! Plus i always felt the Sound in stf was turned down too much..
