new order had a similar issue when 'waiting for the sirens call' came out.
they had left over tracks, and it took a few years, and legal issues to clear up.
but an EP called 'lost siren's' made it out. it wasn't that good, but at least fans got to hear it.
i suspect, with all the hype, even it did get released, it wouldn't be as good as people expected. so that's another reason for it not to be released. there might be a couple of good songs on it, but probably not all of it.

It could go either way. Look at an artist such as Prince that had an amazing vault of material that was not released or is just now being released. Amazing tracks. I would be shocked if there weren't at least 2-3 bangers on Reportage that are worth hearing.

Thanks for the pics links so I can read the article. I always imagined the album as dirty rock tracks, but this makes it sound like they were making Astronaut 2. Why would Sony trash the album if the songs were on the same vibe as Astro? I must be blind, but I cant see the wood for the timber.
