I used to perceive albums of any artist as a whole piece of art believing that Artists/Producers created them as something unit and any skipping/reordering of tracks is some sort of a violation of creator's intention which should not be done. But when I first happened to listen to SOTU I started thinking that 'Programme' button on CD player remote control might be useful while playing the album. There is a lot of good tracks on the album but the album is too long for comfortable listening so some tracks (especially terrible 'Hole To Feed') should not be on the album. I believe this was the Producer's mistake. Therefore this year, before any details of the coming album were disclosed, the only think I was hoping for was that Mr. Hiller is replaced by someone else with new approach to DM music, so that the new album is not spoiled as its two predecessors. Unfortunately no change happened and the gentleman is here again.

So what do we have now?
Negative first. The 'Heaven' single is terribly boring. The song might be a good one to appear on single b-side but not on the album (especially on its first half). And it was very strange choice for the first single. I even thought that I'll never buy the album because of the track. And am I alone here who can hear distortions in the right channel somewhere in the beginning of Heaven (around 1:00)? All in all the sound on the album is too loud. Well, it could be justified if one plays the album on some lo-fi devices like iPod, but why on CD? Also the album is too long (58 mins) which is not suitable for comfortable listening. Why not to make great sounding 45-min album if DM have enough material for that? Worst tracks on the album (of course imho) are Angel, Heaven and Goodbye which easily might be moved to Deluxe Edition CD2. The other two ('Slow' and 'Broken') are not really bad but simply there's no room for the songs left on the album (therefore to be moved to CD2 as well).

Positive. Fortunately the most of tracks on the album is surprisingly good (unlike the bloody 'Heaven') so that it became more obvious that the 'Heaven' is someone's bad taste joke. 'Welcome To My World', 'Secret To The End', 'Alone' and 'Soothe My Soul' are just fantastic! 'My Little Universe' is weaker but I love its minimalistic sound. It all shows that DM are still (or again became to be) capable to create great music! Also, it's strange thing but few tracks from CD2 ('Happens All The Time', 'All That's Mine' and especially 'Long Time Lie') are MUCH better then the boring tracks mentioned above. So I decided to re-order the tracks on the release and below is presented my view of how the Deluxe Edition should have been compiled:

CD1 (46:40):
1. Welcome To My World
2. Long Time Lie
3. Secret To The End
4. My Little Universe
5. The Child Inside
6. Soft Touch/Raw Nerve
7. Should Be Higher
8. Alone
9. Soothe My Soul
10. Goodbye (not good track but there's no better closer for the album)

CD2 (28:40):
1. Heaven
2. Angel
3. Happens All The Time
4. Slow
5. Broken
6. Always
7. All That's Mine

Just try it and perhaps you'll agree with me.
