I feel this is a controversial release. Bless them for releasing this again, I hope I can trust their judgement that the improvements justify this album.

I already have the original release, but unless something's terribly wrong with this one, I'll probably will get this too - the fact that the Encore was missing from the original release always bothered me.

Have they remastered this? The original's peaks sounded extremely muddy.

I understood this recording originates from a more recent concert than the previous release, although with the same tracks, so this can't be a remaster... Or maybe I misunderstood it... whatever

(Orchestra is different, that can't be the same concert, idk...)

Like Efendija pointed out, this is a re-recording.

We got © (plain ol' copyright) & ℗ (phonogram copyright) by Merregnon Studios.

So I'm putting MAZ Sound Tools in the publisher field for now (catalog 'MSP' also helps).

Packaging scans added.

Fans of these composers should read the notes. It's like, required reading for fans. English liner notes from the four composers, as well as a lengthy intro from Masashi Hamauzu, who attended the concert but had none of his own music arranged on it.
