A Heartfelt Symph Prog Rock

This is a quite successful attempt at presenting previously released tracks in a slightly new and different way. Three long tracks about technology (common theme), one of them completely re-recorded (with the exception of the late David Longon's voice), the other two re-mixed and/or partially re-recorded. All three tracks feature a 17 piece string ensemble, and together with an entirely new short track that links the slightly older East Coast Racer to the two newer tracks, it all results in a really homogenous suite. Symphonic Prog Rock at its finest!

Tracks

1.

The newly added string section really works well, as does the outro guitar solo by Dave Gregory.

3.

A really nice track, but on this album it is the least significant.
