I agree its time he did something new, is he really going to re-release all his old albums upto and including Amarok?(maybe more)I can't take all this negativity and criticism each time he re-releases an album, Its also questionable if any more albums really need to be re-mastered after Incantations!!! the recordings thereafter are all good in my view. It would be far better for Mike and universal to release one big box set of extras/rare tracks, etc.
And no matter how many times Mike says he's semi retired, he isn't, he will never stop making muisc, its in his blood, he can't do anything as well as music, and he knows it, the only difference is he can have a gap of how ever many years he likes between albums, we know he has been writing with Don Black, and he said he has had recording sessions via the internet, so has won't stop making music.
