    It tends to happen more and more with the revival of vinyl.
    Your comments make me think of Echolyn's self-titled album from 2012 which was conceived as a double vinyl. On CD it makes for 2 very...

    Don't worry about it, your review has fully convinced me to buy it! I was just curious about the pics.

    Thanks. It's still likely that the b&w pics are of better quality than in the first edition where they looked like photocopies.

    I'm seriously thinking of buying this thanks to John's review even though I have the first edition.
    I'm still interested in knowing if it includes color pictures now that people are starting to...

    It's interesting to compare that excerpt to the original edition. Most of the text is the same with a few parts added but also some removed as well.

    John,
    I know your advance copy is digital but do you know if the pictures included are colour or still black and white like in the original edition?
    Thanks,

    It's not just a question of artists singing in a language that is not their own. Opeth and Beardfish don't have nearly as many mistakes in their lyrics as Stolt, and I've never had issues with them.

    Fair enough, I wasn't aware of this information. It still seems weird not to separate both discs at the halfway point. It makes the second disc seem like it's less important because of its EP length....

    Me neither, that format is just weird: the short second disc doesn't hold together as an entity and seems like an afterthought. The Spock's album didn't really need the extra tracks, and I agree The...

    Judging by the track lengths, it looks like this is actually a regular-sized album with a 20 minute second disk of extra tracks. This is not different from the last 2 TFK albums (at least in their...

    This album is quite enjoyable. The new arrangements are less radical than on Less Is More, the versions never move too far from the originals but that's obviously not the point here. There seems to...

    That remix does not sound spectacularly different from the original although it obviously has a different drum track by Mason and an additional Hammond organ part by Wright.

    Funny how this band can polarize opinions. The new album is right up my alley but I most definitely won't be seeing them live because I see they are still playing many old death metal tunes.

    True. When I said there was nothing new I was referring to the whole story about Steve leaving during the mixing of SO and Phil crossing him in the street on the way to the studio.

    Seriously? I always found his lyrics rather appalling. Full of English mistakes and mostly using metaphors and catchphrases lifted from other songs.

    Well, another track to confirm that the cheesy high-pitched twiddly synths haven't disappeared with Tomas at all. Guess I'll pass on the album. Yet this sounds like vintage TFK so I'm sure many will...

    I'm surprised by this statement since the arrangements are the same. Is it the audience that changes things for you?

    Who knows, maybe that might shift the balance a bit to more Stolt and less Morse? That would definitely change the band's sound somewhat.
