    Koenjihyakkei should qualify on merits of the name alone. That's an 'evolved' name there! ;)

    Do you mean since the length of cd is much longer (and FK albums always are) is there material that won't fit on the LP? Which is a good question. There's no way their earlier 2-fers could fit on 2...

    I think Hasse's voice works well in certain songs, such as when he sings in 'There Is More To This World' and 'Stardust We Are'.

    So I wonder if this will be just solo acoustic guitar like Field Day, or with multiple overdubbed guitars?
