LOL No, never made an album....but I've waited for loads!!

As for track count, on the making-of DVD, Rich Mauser (I think his name is) who mixed Transatlantic's Whirlwind said they gave him the whole 76 minutes on 150 tracks. Shocked His setup couldn't play it all at once, he had to boil it down too. Smiley

Hearing the "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" guitar bits in Track 6 of The Whirlwind - love it.  Smiley

I've just bought the new Transatlantic album as well and I'm listening to it now. After that I am going to watch the DVD that comes with it. An evening of prog that will make (and continue to make) me smile.  Smiley

I've said it before but I think the Whirlwind DVD is a really good example of a making-of offering. You see the meet-up, the playing with ideas, the working out of arrangements, the creation of new stuff, the recording of the different parts, the mixing, the mastering and a little bit of the promo work.
As happened with Pendies' Pure, watching the DVD really helped me to get deeper into the music than I may ever have otherwise.
Love it.

I watched it last night and it is indeed a great watch. Following on a similar style, I'm currently watching Muse's The Making Of The Resistance. I love learning about how bands record stuff and this shows it all. It's good food for my production hungry mind. Lots of DI recording, which I didn't expect.  Smiley

Although the number of guitars and basses they use is ridiculous. They must try about five on every bar of every track before recording it. I am impressed by their gigantic synthesiser, though. Mmm, synths...  Cheesy

Hearing Neal Morse on the Transatlantic DVD saying to a German Festival steward that he was here to replace Frost* on the bill. Just so freaky hearing our Mr Morse saying the name of my bruv's band.  Grin

I do worry when people post at 3 o'clock in the morning.  Unless of course they have a time difference.

I just couldn't sleep last night. I'd had a row with the missus and the foxes were howling in the back garden. What ade it worse was the fact that I had left my alarm clock on which meant I was woken up at 7.30am this morning and couldn't get back to sleep.  Angry

I just become nocturnal during holidays. Sometimes I hang out with the foxes. Last night we were watching The Fast Show in this bloke's back garden and couldn't stop howling all night.

...the foxes were howling in the back garden.   Angry

Yes, many a facebook status from me berating those flaming animals.

You should be able to sleep tonight.  Thursday was my bad night, read til 4am and was so delighted to be up again at 8  Sad so had no probs last night.  Apart from Steve had two of his friends staying and at 1am they thought it would be great to play with K's very noisy Peppa Pig toys.   Angry
