Downloading it right now.  Can't say thank you enough to everyone involved. 

I think I even figured out this torrent stuff.

If anyone is having a major issue with the torrent (say, your ISP has blocked torrents for you because of 'questionable' transfers') drop me an email to rai (at) hourglassdreams.com and I'll link you to a Dropbox share.

It'll be done in about 10 minutes. Thank you guys very much for the kind gift! Perhaps it's time to introduce my neighbors to a band called Dream Theater...

For all of those feeling iffy about the whole torrent thing, I have never used torrents before, and I got going immediately with no research whatsoever.  Simply download and install the free version of the torrent software Wey linked to, then down load the DT torrent Wey linked to, then double click on the dt torrent , click on one more button, and the software starts downloading it right away.  It really is that simple.

Thanks to all involved!


Downloading.... but I don't think it'll be done by the time I leave for work.  :sadpanda:
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

First impression: the snare & the toms sound way better and thicker (the kick is still weak) and the keys are a lot more prominent than on LALP. The mix is much more pleasant to the ear. James is amazing. Thank you, DT.

I have to add that this is the first time MM's cymbals are mixed properly. For me, that makes a huge difference. This mix blows the ones of DT12, ADTOE and LALP out of the water.

Oh my god, James is so perfect in Endless Sacrifice.

He sings everything the way I actually wanted him to in the studio. Best example is "You long for love's em-bra-a-ace".

This sounds like it will be great!!!  Unfortunately, I'm in Chicago with my family, and won't be able to get a hold of this until Saturday when I finally return home, but you can bet this will be one of the first things I take care of once I get in.

Except for when he belches instead of singing burn @3:15, I'm sure you didn't want it to be like that in the studio. :biggrin: Otherwise, it took my completely by surprise how great he was in the choruses. Budokan, eat your heart out.

Big thanks to all involved in the production of this, amazing treat to get :)

I've downloaded it and I'm going to let it seed as much as I can. I can only really do 250kb/s upload rate but every little help and I won't be around my computer as much for the next week so I can just leave it on to seed.

I found that bit really funny...also, a new noteworthy low-register note from James :P

By the way, would someone care to explain to me what the hell is going on with James at the end of EVERY PERFROMANCE of Endless Sacrifice throughout this tour? He keeps going nuts on the mic, saying either "fice...fice...fice...fice...fice..." or "sacrisacrisacrisacrifice" :P

I found that really hilarious. At Moscow he did "fice" only twice, but still hilarious.  :lol

Thanks again for this wonderful gift, Wey and everyone else involved in making it happen!!!

Didn't have much time to listen to all of it, but I did hear "The Great Debate", "Another Day", "To Live Forever", "Learning To Live", and "The Count Of Tuscany" and I have to say, the last two are AMAZING! TGD is pretty damn good, too. I will have to listen to the whole set later on tonight!
