Steven Wilson's Gentle Giant remixes from the first three records. Such a beautiful thing.

Kath and I are jealous. Hopefully this means CD/5.1 versions may happen in the future. This is incredible music and deserves to be presented in the best light it can be, both vinyl and non-vinyl.

Beautiful but a missed opportunity!
The multitracks for the first album do exist!

Arabs in Aspic - Syndegenes Magi

Norwegian psych proggers’ 5th album. Ok-ish but they seem to get less appealing to me with each passing album.

Missing the sublime sense of melody which David Longdon brought to the group but nonetheless a damn fine album.

This album has been a favourite since it was released a year + ago and it still sounds fantastic.

A modern prog masterpiece.
