Re: 2018 Remixed, Double CDs / LP

Either a site error or some editions have already sold out. The demand for vinyl editions must be pretty high, so that's possible. Especially for Imaginations and Nightfall.

Re: 2018 Remixed, Double CDs / LP

About the next 3 Albums, IFTOS, NiME & ANATO. I was about to pre-order but I noticed there's way fewer color options for these LP's than the last albums. Especially on the US site. I'll probably get just black, but I don't wanna miss out on a cool splatter. Has there been anything said about the co...

Re: 2018 Remixed, Double CDs / LP

Yeah, that would break the flow of a classic record, such changes are rarely accepted easily by the audience. That would cause a lot of controversy I think. Although they could experiment a little bit and modify the tracklist on the remastered CD while keeping the original one intact. That would mak...

Good job! The pictures of the hall are quite breathtaking... I wonder if they actually had to commission another orchestra for the project, like they did with the last album. Perhaps the one from Budapest, once again.
