And the second track just ends abruptly -- not necessarily a bad thing, just surprising.

Still, this is a fine investment. I'm finding something new with each listen.

BTW, are the vocals at the beginning of track 2 actually saying anything? If so, I can't quite make it out. Then again, it could just be some nonsense syllables spoken through a vocoder or something similar.


I can't wait for the DVD personally. The title track with guitar on top is perhaps more what you'd been expecting. The moon going pop track has grown on me enormously. I didn't get it at all at the gig. But now it reminds me of "Without a bad Conscience" on Blue Dawn insofar as it's big and ballsy saying "well this is what I am - like it or no"


Trouble is, TD is releasing their DVDs only on the PAL format, which is not available here in the States. Come on, Edgar, you've got lots of fans across the sea, too! How about a Region 1 DVD of, well, everything! :D

My DVD player had to be "reprogrammed" by hitting the right combination of buttons on the remote to play all regions. Found that out by trawling the web. I also bought a very cheap DVD player for the bedroom and that plays everything; all regions, NTSC, PAL, DVD-R, DVD-RW, etc.

perhaps Edgar could re-work all of the EP's into a massive suite?

TD could easily make their DVDs region free as it's not a legal requirement to region code them. The bigger issue is whether it's worth their while producing an NTSC DVD from the PAL footage. Maybe the cost of getting two masters made isn't financially viable.

The obviosu answer of cousre is to get hold of a region-free DVD player and TV that can handle PAL as well as NTSC. This is always handy as so many DVDs are release in one territory but not the other. Good luck!
