Just ordered my copy yesterday. Now I will wait patiently as the combined efforts of the U.S and Canadian postal services, rushes it to my mailbox.
I'm really looking forward to spinning this one.

Thanks for the welcome

Laser's Edge is where I first saw your disc. I put in a bi-weekly, pay day order ( sometimes more, if something comes out that I desperately need ) and when I read the description of your new project from Mr. Golden and a search of the web, it sounded very interesting.
From the lyrical content, coupled with the musical style AND the top-notch musicians that are on the recording, it seemed worth spending my hard earned cash on. Really looking forward to listenning to it. It usually takes about a week to get my order from New Jersey, so I'll definitely give you my impressions, when I've thoroughly digested the disc.

Cheers
Kevin

Oh, it's tempting to click on that 'listen' button, but I have a strange love affair with hard copies.
As a kid - living in Toronto - I used to take the bus and subway downtown, to Sam The Record Man or Music World, wander around for a few hours deciding what to buy and then head home, slap on the headphones, open the albums and get lost for the rest of the day in the music. I read every liner note on the album.
I'm still like that today, although my discs come in the mail. The wife and kids think I'm a little obsessed, but it's music :-)
Didn't mean to be so loooooong winded, but that's why I won't listen to the stream as much as I'm tempted. Guess I'm old school.
I'm expecting the order today or tomorrow - I also ordered 'The Inner Road, Visions' - and as I have 2 night shifts left, to work this week, I'm counting on it and your disc to keep me company.

Thanks
Kevin

Grrrrrrrrr. Looks like I have to wait until Monday - snail mail lives up to it's name again!
I've been noticing all of the stellar reviews though and it just hightens the anticipation of finally hearing the cd. It sounds wonderful!

Hey thanks again, man, it really means a lot to me that people are listening to our album and enjoying it.  And it means even more, obviously, when they actually buy it instead of downloading it.

I purchase all of my music and have ticked off several people, with my stand, and verbal lashings against illegal downloading.
As I say, 'you may as well walk up behind the artist, club him over the head and steal his wallet. It's the same thing'.
I've purchased over 60 new releases this year, all through research ( reviews etc. ), reputation and - once in awhile - a shot in the dark and am probably only disappointed with 1 or 2 purchases. And those were of bands that I knew and liked that just didn't live up to expectation versus thier previous output.
I love my music and am proud to contribute my hard earned money, to folks like you, who use your talents to make the world - and my life personally - that much more enjoyable!
In other words, no no, Thank you! :-)

I got it!!! Bless the mailman!!! He's back in my good book.
Gorgeous packaging for the cd ( isn't this part of the whole experience ? ). I know I'm going to get alot of enjoyment from this. I'll listen tomorrow during the day and give you my impressions, sometime tomorrow night ( it'll probably be later in the evening ).
Again, the packaging is beautiful. A 5 star package! I can't wait to hear the music.

Yeah, sorry, I never got around to changing the text editor here.

You can add an attachment, though

I absolutely love it!!
Sorry I took so long, but I've been a wee bit busy. I'm giving the disc a 3rd spin, as I sit here and it gets better, every time I listen to it.
Ya know, one of the reasons I miss the album experience, is the packaging, but you've managed to recapture that with this package. The booklet and artwork are beautiful!
The music? Incredible! Progressive rock can and sometimes does - in the quest for intelligent and meaningful music - lose sense of melody and, to me, become kind of irritating and ridiculous. No danger of that here! Not only complex but lovely to the ears, that still love a good song.
The lyrics? This, is what vaults the disc into the upper echelons! Smart and thought provoking, the tug between the ancient and the modern leads to a great listening experience. I love history, so that helps .
Isn't this what music should be about? A visual, audio and intellectual wonder.
I love this disc and you should be proud of what you've accomplished in the creation of it
Easily some of the best 12 bucks, I've ever spent. More than worth it!
Thank you guys. This one won't be collecting dust, in the years to come. I'll be eagerly keeping my eyes and ears open, for any news of more to come!

Wow, Kevin, thank you so much!  I'm really glad you are enjoying it.  And just an FYI, but the guy who posted in this thread, maninthemountain, is the artist who created our booklet and cover.  It's such a compelling piece of work, isn't it?  Martin is a very dear friend of mine, and an incredible artist, you can check out more of his work at www.maninthemountain.com

Anyway, thanks again for your very kind comments.
