Hello all,
Now that MOTR is out an loved by all, can we expect the deluxe Amarok any time soon?

Discovery, Killing Fields, Islands & Earth Moving to be re-issued first before we get Amarok!

Amarok is on the way no doubt, but we do have a few other albums to look forward to first, all the fans I would think are really excited about Amarok in 5.1 I think it does really lend it'self to that format, I think Mike is excited about the prospect too :) It will also be great to get this amazing album out in the world again, it's such a great album but hardly anyone knows about it outside of Mike's fans which is a great shame, so I hope the deluxe version gives it the exposure it deserves. I also hope Mike makes a documentary about the album, which is something I think could have (Should have) been done for all the re-releases.

Any news on Amarok 5.1 ?

Really hope he has found the original tapes ? This is one album that would lend itself to surround sound.

Amarok is a very good album for 5.1 audio

Yes it is, but we are still waiting for the deluxe Islands :/ album The Wind Chimes would also be great in 5.1 Maybe this is why Mike has been so quiet, aswell as making TB4 he is doing the deluxe release of Islands too. I suspect that is wishful thinking on my part!!

Given that Mike has gone through financial problems in the last years, he is probably focusing on work that will bring him money.
So, unfortunately, I doubt that a 5.1 mix of an album which sold (?) 10,000 copies is a priority.

I personally disliked MOTR (a lot), but a "pop" album is the one with the highest chance of commercial success.
