Pre-ordering everything the moment it is available.

I saw one show on the Darkness in a Different Light tour, and two shows on the Theories tour. All three were amazing. Great run by the Fates guys. My only slight complaints are that they left off "A Handful of Doubt" (which I got to see twice, thankfully), and "One Thousand Fires," which I got to see on the Darkness tour. (Both of those tunes are in my Fates top-20.) For my personal tastes, I think they could have left out the other stuff that is on the Still Life live album to include those two tracks, but its just a minor complaint in an otherwise, stellar live release.

So glad I was able to go to two gigs in January. It was an incredible weekend of great music and meeting some good people.  :smiley:

Very cool release, almost every song on this latest tour was included! The only exceptions that I could indentify (from setlist.fm) are:
One Thousand Fires (Yes, I also wished very much that this one was in this live release!), APSoG Part III and The Ivory Gate of Dreams IV: Quietus.

Is it audio only?  I can't remember if that was previously discussed.  I know the FB post lists "CD1" and "CD2" tracks, but that alone doesn't necessarily mean there isn't a DVD/BR.  Anyone know?

Before these European shows I remember that FW announced that it would be a live CD from the tour. I guess they just stayed on that.

They did say that the release is going to be culled from something like six or seven different shows. They probably didn’t film anything.

Those, plus APSOG XI and A Handful of Doubt, which wasn't played in Europe. I wish One Thousand Fires was there too, but 23 tracks is quite a lot already, so I'm not disappointed.

Automatic buy.

Obvious statement is obvious.  Too bad it wasn't filmed, but I'm ok with them making it audio only and taking the best quality from the tour.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

I'm strongly tempted to say this is better than the original album version. Ray's vocals are stronger overall here, I think.

It's gonna be so killer. I can't wait to hear how Silent Cries sounded. Jim said that Ray had to obviously sing it lower, but that it came out really well. So I am pumped to hear it. Great track list. I still wish they would have put One Thousand Fires and A Handful of Doubt on there, but that's nitpicking. I have the vinyl and CD mediabook on pre-order. Can't wait to crank it.

sounds really good!

Yeah it does. Ray sounds great.

I got to see them on the opening night of this tour, and Ray sounded fantastic.  Rewind to the Prog Nation tour with Redemption and Ray sounded, to be kind, terrible.  Props to him for obviously working on getting his voice back in shape.

Damn, that Firefly rendition was good. As others have said, that's actually an improvement over the album version in my book. Ray seems on fire these days.

Totally purchasing this one as soon as I see it in the record store.

It's interesting to see a list that's nearly a mirror image of mine (except for the first and last albums, and my doesn't include the non-FW Arch stuff):

APSOG

DIADL
No Exit
Inside Out

I couldn't rank them if my life depended on it  :lol

With the exception of Night on brocken, I actively listen to all of the FW albums and enjoy what each has to offer.  I worship APSOG and its a top 5 favorite album of all time for me.

Yeah, I'm not sure that I could rank them, either. I've been a fan since the late 80's, and each record has special parts that I'll always love.

The debut is is probably most people's least favorite, but Damnation is an absolutely stellar track.

It's a little easier for me, because I am not an uber fan of the Arch era. I by far prefer Ray (although I have crazy respect for John and his unique phrasing).

Parallels
No Exit
Theories of Flight
FWX
A Pleasant Shade of Gray

Awaken the Guardian
Disconnected
Darkness in a Different Light
Perfect Symmetry
Inside Out
The Spectre Within
Night on Brocken

>>>The top 5 are solid. The others really vary depending on mood. The only two records I don't listen to with regularity are the bottom two. But I still like them.
