Like a lot of people I get a little tired of remixes/remasters/alternate versions of songs/albums unless there are genuine improvements like VT remix.I have decent audio setup and I am critical of what I hear but I couldn't be bothered if there is a hidden triangle part in Xanadu or something like that.What gets me is the cost of these reissues.I bought three of the Led Zep deluxe box sets and they sit on the shelf having been once looked at and played and now blending in with all the other collectables gathering dust.I think sometimes my money could have been better off spent at the pub.There is one upside to this reissue nonsense is that people are off loading their perfectly fine previous issues of their favourite artists to charity shops in which I scored nearly complete collections of King Crimson,Steely Dan,ELP,Till,etc all for about $40 .Perfect to whack on for weddings,parties,anything.I do hope that that the live disc gets a separate release in the future.

Wait . . . there's an extra triangle part in Xanadu?  At what point in the song??  I MUST hear that!  And I'm more than willing to spend a 150 clams for that alone.

Disappointed in the lack of new material, the 4 tracks left off of Different Stages are the only exciting thing here IMO.

WAIT a second, there is something else! An unreleased studio track! "Cygnus X-2, Eh" unfortunately it's apparently just some sound effect outtakes from Cygnus X-1 but this could mean that there's more stuff in the vaults!

I believe theres tons of stuff in the vaults they could release. so I think they will do so every year. give us a little here a little there, but make us spend tons of  cash  for stuff we already have, with just a few extras tacked on. you kow they could have put out a full TFE 97 Toronto show by now..

Steven Wilson commented on his remix Facebook page;  he explains the "Cygnus X2 eh" "New song"  (it's not really a song but extended sound effects from the intro.)  Still not worth $150 as far as I' concerned.

Quote

Earlier this year, I was asked by RUSH to remix their classic 1977 album "A Farewell to Kings" into 5.1 surround sound for its 40th anniversary, and it now appears on Blu-ray as part of a deluxe box set that also includes 3CDs and 4 vinyl LPs to be released on 1st December. The remix was done with feedback and final approval from Alex Lifeson. I also made stereo and 5.1 mixes of a 4 minute instrumental sequence found on the original tapes. This is basically a longer alternate version of the electronic music used at the start of Cygnus X-1, so not a new Rush song as such, more a piece of sound design, but hopefully interesting to hear if you're a fan of the album. Pre-ordering and full details of the contents of the set (which also includes a complete 1978 concert recording) can be found here - https://lnk.to/AFTK40th

Painting easel seen from the side with a wide paintbrush balanced on top?  Painting is one of his hobbies. It's hard to see but that's all I got, I'm not positive though.
