Re: New Album Cover..?

Ha. I've got it. The single is Dreamland. The tour is Dreamworld. So the album must be Dreamcontinent.

Re: New Album Cover..?

I could deal with Turbulent as a title. I'd prefer Rhododendron but you can't have everything.

Re: Weak production

I’m no expert at all but this pm I listened to the instrumental Elysium songs and they sounded incredibly rich. Perhaps now the boys don’t have the backing of Parlophone, they have to economise a bit. Also, by having such dud mastering now, gives multiple opportunities in the future for re-masterin...

Mainly remember that because it popped online during a dismal weekend trip to Ikea and I was looking at my phone to avoid a Christian evangelist who was explaining to me how Jesus felt about homosexuality.

Re: Keeping An Open Mind on An Open Mind

"An Open Mind" is the kind of gift they give longtime followers, and I'm pleased they are still giving us tunes of this quality on EPs.

The Lost Child?

Its actually called "The Forgotten Child"
The lost child is in the forgotten room. It's all rather confusing.

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

No Boundaries is infectious and an instant ear worm although it does have a hint of Living On The Ceiling by Blancmange about it, although that's not necessarily a bad thing. Funnily enough I never thought of Blancmange. I find it turns in my head into It Can Happen by Yes, and then I see Christoph...
