Ohhh my giddyod that was awesome! Loved it.

So is there not going to be a special edition for this one?

They've stated in interviews that there is pretty much no material outside of the tracks on the record, not any completed tracks anyway (they were required to have extra tracks for B-sides and special editions on the record label they were on before so they purposefully overcompensated). So no, no special edition, B-sides, or any kind of extras. Sucks, but I'm hoping this means we will get more quality songs.

Jim said that InsideOut encouraged, or required, that bands have material for a bonus disc.  But Metal Blade doesn't ask that.

Sadly the interview never came together, but around the time of new Fates Warning I do still hope to ask Jim a little bit about this.

I listened to Blood today, and while OSI was a band I've usually been underwhelmed by, this was pretty good.

BCII is a better track from the album I'd say, but I probably prefer the first and last track to anything else on the album.

I friggin' love those lyrics. I have a feeling I'm going to fuck this album when I get it. Just...rip it's plastic off, spread that sexy case open and just make sweet, musical love to it. Mm.

I'm kind of bummed, to be honest. Cold Call and Big Chief II have done next to nothing for me. I hope the album is better than the sum of its parts.
Orion....that's the one with a bunch of power chords and boringly harsh vocals, isn't it?

Cold Call wasn't as great as I thought it'd be, and I have a feeling it'll be my least favorite on the album; but BCII has rocked my socks off, I absolutely love the lil jam. Short, sweet and to the point. It's different than what I expected though, and while that isn't a bad thing, it's also got me somewhat nervous (more anxious) about the rest of the album. Either way it'll be an interesting ride.

My order has shipped! I also finally picked up their first album in this order (it's surprisingly difficult to find for a reasonable price), so I am quite excited.

Got an email from Metal Blade today - my FMT T-Shirt/CD package is shipping! Should be here Saturday or Monday! PSYCHED! I haven't listened to ANY of the songs posted in the last couple weeks, so this will be really fresh for me when I get it!

Same here, I'm hoping to get an email in the next couple days. Never had a problem with Amazon before so...fingers crossed. It would be just my luck though for the one order to screw up be this one, the only thing I've ordered in years and one of the most anticipated albums for a long while. ::)
