Hell was intended to be the rabble-rousing singer’s latest album, but his label rejected it (reportedly for being too depressing), instead releasing the fun-but-undercooked ”Rock N Roll.” ”Hell,” meanwhile, has been split into a pair of EPs.

In fact, the only real disappointments are a pointless cover of ”Wonderwall” and the fact that we have to wait until Dec. 9 for the rest of it.
