    This is very cool; Stormwatch is an underrated album and deserves this level of treatment. The second side is a thing of beauty from beginning to end.

    On a quick first listen, its main difference from SB is Boegehold's more synth-heavy keyboard sound, and Leonard's different-sounding guitar. I don't think this could NOT have been a Beard record,...

    Unless you didn't mean "dead," Mort Drucker and Sergio Aragones are still with us. A friend of mine even sat with the latter at a comic convention!

    There's still a fair amount of strings on "Time." I like the little violin run between verses in "Yours Truly, 2095" and the strings add a lot to "Rain Is Falling."
