If it is a real dvd-a is uncertain these days, but we will know soon enough.2 Disc media book edition of Anathema's acclaimed full length Kscope debut. Anathema returned in 2010 with their first collection of new material since the 2003 album, 'A Natural Disaster'. A multi coloured, multi layered work of unbridled emotion, passion and intensity the album was acclaimed across the globe. Anathema have been at the forefront of the UK rock/metal movement for many years. They began their journey as pioneers of melodic heavy music, influencing a myriad of bands to follow them, before outgrowing all genres and limitations as they fearlessly explored new territory and new ways to express feeling through sound. This 2 Disc Media book edition of the album comes packed in a rigid digi-book with a 16 page booklet and features the album on CD plus a DVD-A with a 5.1 surround mix of the album, which comes courtesy of Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree).
Think you have hit the nail on the head here, Patrick. This album was a *very* long time in the making; several tracks appeared in different forms years earlier and there were times when fans thought the band had disappeared. I strongly suspect that there may have been little or no scope to control some aspects of the production.Hey- I kinda agree here. But I have to imagine the recording quality from the get-go wasn't as top shelf as Steven is used to be working with. IMO. Thanks.
Came across this new edition at a Media Market store. It has a new catalogue number, kscope251, in the same media book as the first release. And it IS a dvd-a/v, nice!While searching for the Anathema live BD, which did not show up in the search results, I did see that the We're Here gets a re-release as a cd/dvd-a set. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Were-Here-Because-Media-Edition/dp/B00B5DLCGC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1362334376&sr=8-2

Still a great album. It was my first SW mixed album I bought without knowing the band or music. And I never looked back
Agreed. One of my favorite albums ever. The SW surround mix is fantastic. I really wish he would've done the surround mix for the other Anathema albums.Just picked this up off eBay and received today, came with a CD, DVD-A and to my surprise a 7"LP. But what really surprised me is how great the 5.1 mix is along with what great character the music has. On my second listen now.
