Wider audience, yep. Mighty challenge, yep. Altered for live performance, sure, if done deliberately by a band loaded up with people capable of playing it with total immersion, at the talent level required. Can't say more, because I don't know where that band is.
If APP is remixed, what should the remix product include? I'd like to hear bandmember comments on the recording and touring of it.
I think that the sleeve should be expanded into a booklet rather like the other remastered albums and also that the whole piece should be tracked in a similar fashion to the super duper gold edition which goes for mega bucks on ebay and other auction sites on the web.
And . . . it would be great to see some photographs of the band in the studio around 1973, ones that we haven't seen before. Surely they must exist somewhere ?
And the slightly preposterous, over-the-top idea that you can cram 8,040 years of history into 52 minutes, why mess about? Get on with it – do something challenging.
I have not yet purchased any of the Steven Wilson remixes of Tull material--except for a single mp3 file from amazon--not because I'm not interested, but I don't really feel I need it.
That being said, from hearing bits of his work before, I will be inclined to get my hands on the upcoming Passion Play release. That is the Tull album I regularly come back to more than the others I notice.
mbanford: got mine yesterday.It may take some time to sort out the lyrics.The music is good, but you knew that.

steelmonkey: Am I the only one who thinks the basic Homo E. riff is absolute gold, magic, deep Tull perfection and everything else is bonus ? I can't get enough of 'Enter' and 'Cold, Dead'.

steelmonkey: drumsticks before 'banish zombies' also pure gold.
