    Coming Home sounds like a cross between Navigate the Seas of the Sun and River of No Return, with a splash of Out of the Shadows.

    Enjoying The Alchemist more now than previously, which also sounds a little like Bruce solo, but specifically like something from Accident of Birth...kinda reminds me of The Magician maybe.

    Still finding it hard to find a really weak track personally, maybe one in the middle somewhere there is a little weaker, Starblind or The Talisman, but it is very strong album IMO

    Right, so I finally have the internet back and wanted to check out the special features on the album... but how does it work? I put the CD in my PC, nothing special happens, just plays the music. Hmm?

    Why couldn't they just include a bonus dvd like last time? I want to watch a behind the scenes doco on my tv, not my pc, and what happens in ten years when I want to check out the bonus content again and the link is broken? Bah.

    Totally agree, I guess it is a cost saving exercise on management's part

    Methinks I'll need to re-rip AMOLAD now to see what the fuss is about, or Spotify it (I do own the CD, no idea where it is though:))

    So were you just twiddling your thumbs during the two gigs on the AMOLAD tour, Mark? I thought you were enjoying yourself.

    I had listened to it before the gigs; don't think I've listened to it more than twice since (and that's been in the last week!).

    I enjoyed Starblind alot more during todays listen, but had to turn it off when I got up to The Talisman.

    There was a thread on the IM boards regarding the same problem you mentioned Southy about it getting stuck at the 15 minute mark.

    As for myself, I gave up trying to get the thing to work due to needing a Java update, or some shit. When I tried clicking the update it directed me to a dead link.

    Even without that I dont like the case, or the fact that cover doesn't state band name and album, but that's just me being anal.

    Great album though.

    Yeah, I was really enjoying the interviews until it cut out. Hopefully it's fixed.

    Annoyed that the game is the one they already had on the website. Grr.

    I like the tin case and the booklet without the logos etc, makes it look as though you are looking out a shuttle window, Is cool. That said, they really could have made it better. DVD inclusion would have made me happy.

    I will watch the doco at my parents place sometime, I don't like wasting bandwidth at home.
