The 2-CD set will be under the tree come Christmas.
Apart from hearing a rough live version of "Love Can Heal" from the Paper Scissors Rock tour many years ago, I have avoided listening to the monthly releases and so will come to the album (I prefer listening to an entire album as a whole work) 'deaf' as it were.
The only thing I'm asking myself is should I listen to each disc as it is, or listen to both versions of each song side by side and so on...? Would I be prejudiced against whichever 'side' I didn't listen to first? Or that I did listen to first...?
Or will I just be bloody grateful that after 21 years (and 24 days) I'll actually have his new album in my hands, as a little over 2 years ago I posted:
"Only when I have a CD of new original PG material in my hands
...and only when I have listened to the CD for the second time (because the first might be a dream)...
...will I start to believe his new album might be nearing release."
...or actually has been released...
