Ah yes. Welcome to the DTF abbreviation world, HCE!   :lol

HCE, after TRTRTS and GFD. I don't think Insurgentes ever had an abbreviation, did it? I mean, unless you count the use of NSRGNTS, but at that rate, you might as well spell out the whole word. NSG looks fine, or ISG, the first letter of each syllable.  :lol

One-letter words don't normally need abbreviating. I mean, we never abbreviate Awake. 8VM is an exception, because Octavarium is a small handful.

I suppose, but Insurgentes is one letter longer than Octavarium, yet we still abbreviate it as 8VM. I impose a new abbreviation for SW's first full solo album as being ISG or NSG. Whichever fans like more.

The title is like one of those cryptic lines you hear a crazy or traumatized person repeating in a movie, where they're punctuating every word for emphasis just to hold on to their sanity, and only towards the end of the story that you slowly realize just what they were talking about.

Whatever I've experienced, my hand cannot erase it, guys. My hand! Cannot! Erase!

Joking aside, that's what I pictured. It gives each word clout and impact. I really like it. Even with the exclamation points it's not the same, it seems wily. The simple... Hand. Cannot. Erase.

It's like something out of a horror film. Just what I want from an SW album.

So, we're briefly talking about it in the PT-thread (but more to the PT side of things), but I'm curious, what songs would you guys hope to hear live, apart from the obvious new ones?

As much as I love Raider II (one of his best solo songs for me), I think it is time to retire it on this tour, because it is very long, and it would leave up a lot of free space for other, more interesting surprises.

Salvaging would be my biggest hope. I love that track, and it's a bummer that he hasn't played it live yet. Puncture Wound, Untitled or Collecting Space from the Insurgentes bonus disc would be really nice surprises, and I would also be really happy if he played Home in Negative, which is a really nice little gem from the GfD bonus discs.

Yeah, I actually really like the title. A bit quirky, but not in a bad way.

The more I hear the title the more I like it to be honest. I think it's just my preference though, I prefer shorter and more "to the business" titles rather than long & drawn out thematic names. I mean there are exceptions (like with everything), but "Hand Cannot Erase" feels very catchy and memorable.

That's the thing though, I think "Hand Cannot Erase" sounds and reads great as a title. "Hand. Cannot. Erase.", not so much.

It looks weirder, but I would still pronounce it the same way so it makes zero difference apart from what it says on the cover, for me at least.

Same. For me, it's an artistic thing. If I'm actually talking about it, of course I'm not going to take the time to pause between each word...that's kind of ridiculous. But while reading it, in my head it'll have more of an impact. Yes, preferences and opinions and viewpoints, oh my!

For me, I just give each word a little more space, Hand   Cannot   Erase, it really doesn't sound that weird to me to say out loud.

100%  We all know it's Steven Wilson.  There's a reason for this.  I approve of it.  It's thought provoking.

I've just never liked the trend (or whatever you call it) of a period after each word, for emphasis.  I get it; when you say it out loud, there's a pause, to stress the importance of each word, blah blah blah.  I just think it looks kinda dumb when written out.

Watch the title be what it is because the album itself is in three parts all titled "Hand", "Cannot" and "Erase", so he just took the chunks of the album and made it the title.

I hope I'm wrong, but it would be neat. I'm sure the title will also be used as a song for a title track.

To get back to album speculation (rather than title overanalysis), I can genuinely imagine the music at the beginning of the AIR Studios Part 1 video being an Overture-type piece at the start of the album.
