its much different. reason being doug mann (a member) had a huge influence over the side project which had BIG plans its also an important fact that brainchild began as a duo not a full fledged band. the re-release lost "musical quality" and you can hear the passion Scott and C.O.D members had just re-playing an album instead of re-making the album. everyone interested should check their page out here http://www.last.fm/music/Brainchild
i agree with silverlage, i also suggest that you listen to the (once) side project, brainchild along with metamorphosis as the album under that side project was called Mindwarp and it was forcibly re-released by R.E.X under C.O.D as an album called Brainchild eliminating it from being a side project so if you never heard the non-re-released version it deserves a listen.
Disengage is least favorite. Songs like Yurasuka? What? One of the most talented creative artists I know can only come up with that for a title of a song? The album was overdone and not nearly as raw as ummm Onenemy and Exploration, which are two of his best songs ever, including Celldweller. Argyle Park is his best work to date. Even if it was a collaboration.
In many ways this is genre-defining Industrial metal and totally underrated. Amazing combination of gritty guitars with electronics whilst respecting the relationship between both. Although 'Disengage' isn't their strongest album, I love how you can hear the roots of Celldweller taking place back then.
The original release of the COD S/T debut is still one of my favorite records. The re-release was Very good as well but I liked the production on the original release better. I finally got to see the video for Telltale Crime on dailymotion-good stuff (It's now on my phone). COD rocks-but every project Klayton touches seems to satisfy his fans. I was way late to Celldweller.
