    In truth, if this was about generating funds then it would have been a physical release in a big fancy package to try and lure collectors back to the well.

    I think I saw somewhere that within the last week, every song from Fear Inoculum was in the Billboard Top 100 or the like.

    So did I, although based on a few recordings I heard on YT I don't think I have an issue with what he did on Echoes either.

    OH YES...Manic has been their default encore/closer for a couple of years now and it NEVER fails to put a smile on my face. They are just so much fun.

    I'm most fond of Goblin Rebirth ... and that lineup's setlist when they came through on tour was FANTASTIC.

    But, I'd say all three are pretty solid overall.

    I'm honestly shocked to see Simonetti release genuinely new music. He seemed to be caught in a fairly endless cycle of re-releasing new versions of old songs (IMHO to seriously diminishing returns)....
