Suzie is definetely on it, not sure about Flo-but I don't think they could coordinate their schedules with her. Guys-the cover looks great, and the samples on myspace sound awesome! Can't wait to hear the whole thing. We're all in for a TREAT!!!!!

Enticing-now there's a great word-you may be able to get away with that one on PE! We already know that exciting is too self-indulgent apparantely!

:shock:

Bonus DVD feature! Jon Anderson Lost in Chattanooga (destined to become a collectors item!)

Watch as Jon Anderson "sees Rock City" painted on the side of every barn and truck stop along I-75 between Knoxville and Chattanooga.

See the magic as Fred breaks an old oath just to share a laugh with one of his prog heroes, as he takes Jon to the RiverBend festival if only to hear Jon say "so they call that a music festival?!?" and the two laugh like hobbits who have had too much Old Toby.

Witness the wonder as Glass Hammer takes Jon to see Lookout Mountain and they stand at the base of the it with Jon asking "so the mountain... it's behind that big tree covered hill??" and the Glass Hammer choir sings in unison "the mountain, well... err, it is the big tree covered hill!"

:D :P :twisted:

edit/footnote/credit where credit is due
Yes, I'm paraphrasing stuff from Bruce Bledsoe's obscure book entitled "Growin' Pains", which pokes fun at Chattanooga.

Ditto! :D

Since college is cracking the whip, I haven't gone forum-iing lately. But the at the first sample of COA, tears of ultimate joy welled up in my eyes . . . :twisted:

Well it looks as if this Album is getting treated fairly well on PE at preorder time. I hope this continues.

But what happens if we post glowing reviews of the album? If this is as good as I think it will be, I will say so, and no pun intended, will get hammered. It should be as fun as usual on PE.

So can't wait for this new album after hearing all of the samples.

Are you guys also doing an iTunes release for this record? Just curious.
