I took the cd with me also on a 2 hour drive I had to do for work this past week. Such an awesome soundtrack for a long drive. I was really sucked in the the music.It really is an album I always wanted to have without even knowing it existed! Took the stereo CD on a brief road trip this evening and even that proved to be comfortably crank able! Great record that only grows...

I experimented further. I changed the LFE channel back to "out of phase", so now it's like the "corrected" disc.Still even after the correction of the two channels, I have a problem with the bass drum sound, it is in the LF, LR and LFE. This is a bit too much, at least on my setup and in my room.
If you like the drumming on this one check out Watershed. That album has phenomenal drumming. Shame SW didn't mix it.I like this album, it is again a change of style, but still comparable with the previous one (Heritage).
The mix, by Steven Wilson, is nice with excellent sound and good surround. It is noticeable that the drums are very much in the foreground. This might have helped Martin Axenrot to win the title of Best Prog Drummer in the World Today.
