    someone mentioned it on here a while back – and I will second it (as I am currently listening to Island Tour “Piper” – let’s hope the long Piper intros find their way back. They are awesome.

  3. Selector J Says:

    Amen, @seif.

    I have a feeling that this summer is going to be massive. Seems like whenever they have an album due, they really let it hang out and search for a sound. Billy Breathes was recorded post Fall ’95. Story of the Ghost, during and post Fall ’97/Island Tour. Et cetera.

    The future is now. Or more specifically, it will be now in precisely one month.
