Realizing Rob's claim that all editions of this release have bonus tracks, I'm curious - does it make a difference whether they are included in your assessment or not?

I agree this is pretty great, but confused... is the music bot-driven as well? Is that AC/DC that I actually hear performing? Is this some kind of deep state conspiracy?
