The great, the spoiled (btw, Henry, you did it!) Space-Dye Vest.

I got spoiled, but I didn't spoil you!  Tongue

There's only one "very special song never played live" Wink Anyway it's not like I'm complaining, just mocking - it blew me off anyway. I'm waiting for 28th February now, to see gig for the second time.

And great pic with Cap'n! Will it be framed on your wall now? Smiley

If it's gonna be a video release, they must include:

1) The live video that animates False Awakening Suite
2) Way more important, the compilation of videos that are screened during the intermission  Grin Grin Grin Grin

Well, Budokan DVD has intro on it. And yeah, me too want to see the intermission mix  Smiley

I have been in a read-only mode for a while, and not even read to avoid spoilers for some time Roll Eyes

For this time I've decided to travel somewhere to Europe to catch an evening with DT. Of course I'll also come to Moscow show, but they'll play a really bad venue in terms of sound. The worst option, to tell the truth  Undecided Anyway, I may criticize Moscow venues a lot, and that not the subject now.

For the first experience I was frozen by the cold wind, while trying to collect my tickets - it was a long and dumb process. But after all - here I'm in Gasometer Hall, already huge crowded, watching the screensaver with the DT-album artwork. My wife said I may go insane whatever I'd like to, while she's gonna to see the show from a more calm place. Luckily waiting didn't last long - the False Awakening Suite starts, with the animation based on all artworks. The next...
I've never believe that 3 hours can pass this fast! It was absolutely incredible. It was the best sound at DT gig that I ever heard - perfect loundness and balance of each instrument. I didn't knew the setlist (except for one huge spoiler) so it was even more exiting. The entire Trail of Tears was a kind of shock - unbelievable that I really see guys playing the song. The first act passed in a blink of an eye, even with all its epic tracks. I wish to hear Bridges in the Sky instead of On the Backs of Angles, but it was impressive anyway!

In the intermission they play a mix of funny videos from youtube. Good joke for all who knows Smiley
The second act start without warning with The Mirror. I'm not a big fan of Awake, so mostly I hope that the album sequence will be repeated. And it did! Lie!!! _That_ was in impression! One of my DT favorites, and you know what? James sang it outstandingly good! yay!  Cheesy
After that James had announced that they have two anniversaries this year - 20 years of Awake and 15 of SFAM, so the second act will be a tribute to these albums, leaving my WTFed. And what about 10 years of 8V, Cap'n??? Honestly, it'll be much better for me to hear more from 8V than from Awake. Including Octavarium song itself of course! But unfortunately, there weren't a single song from 8V. How unfair!
Back to the gig - after 2 more songs there were it! The great, the spoiled (btw, Henry, you did it!) Space-Dye Vest. It is really magical song. The only one which make the crown quite for a moment. Magical, heart-braking... It way more touching live than I can imagine! After that - the only new song in the second part - epical Illumination Theory. The live playing only confirm that it is the best song of the new album! And now - encore. Fully consist of SFAM. I wish it were the entire SFAM, but it was the third hour of the show, and guys have become tired. I've noticed, that singing at the end of the show not easy for James. May be that's a reason why the play Dance of Eternity. Several minutes of musical madness!

What can I say - it was the best DT show I've attend. Perfect sound, huge screen, cameras and animation. Again, to see JLB, JP, JR, JMX and MM live is a great experience. I really missed it  Smiley They all in a great form and perform they best. Can't wait to see them again in Moscow!

Listening to it for about 5th time... Less aggressive, than SI, but still very melodic and catchy. Great album, definitely worth waiting.

I think I'm gonna catch the Vienna show with my wife. An evening with format worth traveling to anywhere Smiley

Artwork looks poorly as for me. Track listing, song lengths and instrumental are sooo exciting! Can't wait to hear it

Listen to the rest of the albums  Smiley If you like even Ghost Opera (which for me one of the worst their albums) you'll like the rest. My special recommendations for Black Halo, Silverstorn, Poetry for the Poisoned and Epica.

I can't figure out why people are so worked up over 50 Shades of Gray. There are so many "erotica" books out there, and they've been around for so many years. It's not like this is the first one ever. Why is this one so special?

A good marketing, maybe?

Honestly, I've never heard about this book before, and its description didn't inspire me to read it.

In addiction to questions I send you via Facebook.

May we hope for the pirate themes at the new album cover?  Cheesy
