The Sirens of Time - Redux

Interesting release to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of The Sirens of Time. I like the idea of remastering some of those early releases. While I think they are solid, obviously after 25 years, there will be room for improvement. It’ll be interesting to hear how it flows with all three stories mixed together.

Very interesting! I love the idea of a collector’s cassette even though I would have literally no way of playing it - feels like a lovely callback to the past. And the idea of remastering it seems like a very good idea indeed :sweat_smile:

shame I don’t actually care for the episode enough to want to buy it again :sweat_smile:

I’m interested to see how they do the re-cut, and I’m a real sucker for a cassette tape, so I will probably buy this. Sirens was the first BF I listened to when they went free on Spotify, so it holds a special place in my heart even if it is a bit pants.

If I were to get this, I’d only be interested in download. What isn’t clear, is whether or not the download only version comes with the interviews or not. If not, that feels almost like a cheat for those who are interested in the interviews, but not any of the physical media.

I was just about to post the exact same question!

I’m pretty sure the download has the extras:

The Sirens of Time – Redux is due for release in November 2024 and is now available to pre-order in four pricing tiers – bronze, silver, gold and platinum – each of which includes bonus extras, exclusively here.

(Bold highlight is mine)

I can’t think of an example when the download hasn’t included extras.

Okay. Cause I was seeing this in the pricing guide:

So the way I was reading it that the bronze edition didn’t have any interviews.

Those two sentences do seem a bit contradictory. Best guess would be cut down bonus features on the download.
