Inconsolable Secret revisited? Why?

You cannot improve on perfection.

Makes as much sense as Yes redoing "Close To The Edge".

It's an alternate way of looking at it. We're know that some people are going to remain emotionally attached to the original version and that's great. But really, it's no more different than, say, having the live version of Knight Of The North as another way of hearing the piece. :)

Heck, it might even make a fine companion to the original, like a Nine Inch Nails remix album or The Beatles' Love album that came out in 2006. Probably bad comparisons, but still.

I will always remain emotionally attached to the original. It is one of the most beautiful albums I have ever heard. But, having said that, I am looking forward to getting emotionally attached to the new version.

Just keep putting out the soma for the the Hammerheads.

I'll also always have an emotional attachment to the original. That's partly the reason for revisiting it. Its kind of like (I speak for myself of course) a great big world we got to play in once, and I want very much to return. If only to see what else is there. Does that make any sense? :?

Coming from a C.S.Lewis fan...it makes a lot. I'm looking forward to the Revisited version too, since it's difficult now to aquire the original version, maybe I'll be able to get the improved one!

I know I personally love your Chronometree to The Inconsolable Secret sound, but I am nonetheless really pumped for TIS Revisited! But, I am really curious as to how the actual CD is going to be packaged and such. Is the album art going to be the same, a redone version of the same, or completely new? That, and are there going to be extra features as there were on the original?

Double Post Alert!!!!!!!

I know you guys are probably overworked with the new album coming out, but my brother keeps asking me to check when you guys think Revisited may come out. I think what he's looking for is "next year," "a few years" or "never." Thanks for any response, even if it's just chastising me for posting annoyingly!

Well, the back-up drive it was on crashed so... we have to start over. There were hours and hours and hours of work already into it, so it's pretty heartbreaking. All we can do is start again and try and make it even cooler than it would have been. But it's going to be a while now :? Next year is probably the correct answer.

Oh, so it was already started?! Oh, wow, what else did you guys lose with that crash?

We lost the bass tracks to Matt's solo album, they have to get redone.

WHOA! Seriously?!!?!? :evil:

You guys have the *worst* luck with losing work by failing drives!

I'm sure you guys are plenty IT savvy, but I know theres some REALLY good deals on NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices right now that run in a RAID1 configuration, giving you double redundancy ON the backup device itself...

Unfortunately, that's not a particularly viable solution for the Roland. It's my own fault; I had just deleted it off the main drive a few days before but hadn't done a CDR backup. I was going to do that from the external drive and the partition crocked. Just that one, the other 10 are fine. (Roland drives format in 11Gb partitions. Don't ask me why.) We've only really had one real disaster in the past. Sh!t happens *lol* If I had been a bit more careful it wouldn't have though. Oh well.

Ahh... well, thank you for 'splainin' that! I like these little insights, just wish it wasn't a 'bad' one!
