    Yes! Thanks for the correction. It's been a while since I listened to Vol. 2 and you're absolutely right.

    "Fragile Dreams" is (arguably) the most essential song from that album, but it's also on Hindsight, Homecoming, Universal and (the original) Alternative 4 so plenty of other places to get it!

    i am surprised that no-one has commented on the weird ending to the optimist. Complete silence for a considerable period of time. And then weird singing, talking etc. Thought something was wrong at first. Anyone care to explain?

    It's the lead up to a hidden track. Courtesy of wikipedia for more details:

    The song "Back to the Start" ends at 7:35. After 3 minutes of silence (7:35 - 10:35), a hidden song begins.
    Without music to decorate it, TIME is just a bunch of boring production deadlines, or a collection of dates by which bills must be paid. - FZ 1984

    This album is considered a follow on to their 2001 album "A Fine Day to Exit" or, more accurately, was inspired by the cover art of "Exit."

    "Exit" also features a "hidden" acoustic track "In the Dog's House" which follows five minutes silence at the end of "Temporary Peace" (which is an Anathema classic, btw, so if you haven't heard it get a copy now) so I guess they're acknowledging that.

    [Edit]: BTW it was missing from the first BluRay test pressing that I got during play testing, so you can thank/blame me for it's inclusion on the final, released version!
