    Excellent news.

    The album is now on Spotify.

    Highly recommended if you like bands like Porcupine Tree, Riverside, Anathema and Marillion.

    Listening on progstreaming - the final track is just a beautiful way to close the album.

    I'm currently enjoying the latest Airbag release (A Day at the Beach) and was reminded of my amusement while playing Disconnected in the car recently. Being in the car is key in this case.
    My vehicle has a multi-display on the console which can display all sorts of car functions. When a CD is playing it automatically displays the following:

    Track Name
    Artist Name
    Album Name

    So, when I inserted the CD just prior to setting off recently, my passenger was particularly concerned to see the following "warning" being displayed...

    KILLER
    AIRBAG
    DISCONNECTED

    and once the second track started....

    BROKEN
    AIRBAG
    DISCONNECTED

    LOL! I just got my Subaru’s killer airbags fixed (it took them years for a final fix for the airbag recall)!

    BTW, I just finished listening a second time to the new Airbag album. It’s excellent!

    Without me listening, is there enough difference in the Airbag albums to justify owning more than one>

    I've never really understood that argument. I like pizza and I like to eat it from many different places. Sure, they all taste similar, but I like them all. I wouldn't say, no thanks I've already had pizza before.

    Comparison of art and food does not make sense to me.

    I am not sure about that; one school of thought states that food is art.

    Example, poetry in motion:

    Okay, I have Disconnected, I like it but some bands while keeping their "style" manage a fresh take.

    Suggestions for a second Airbag, as vehicles have two.

    Identity, All Rights Removed, and The Greatest Show on Earth are great albums. Hardly a dud within all three. The latter two are what got me into the band initially. I didn’t enjoy Disconnected all that much, and A Day at the Beach was enjoyable but kind of forgettable.

    I think the new one’s really good.
