Everybody knows that Mike himself doesn´t like the way that TB was recorded and its final result,in terms of quality.
This new version,IMO, means a lot to him...tecnhology has improved a lot since '72 and now he can record TB the way he WANTED WAY BACK THAT TIME. We can expect to see him saying that the new version will be the definitive version of this masterpiece.
Of course there are many people who is not going to be happy ,saying 'another damn Bells album'. Think about the 30th anniversary thingie, and if it is like him releasing a TB version for the 21st century, or a live version of it.
I´ve had the chance to hear some TB versions around,and some things I´ve heard would be great to hear on the new version.I like the orchestra in the Exposed version,especially on the TB Part 1.
I remember Alan Parsons(the sound engineer for Dark Side of the Moon from Pink Floyd) saying that when he did a remix of his first album with his band,The Alan Parsons Project,he loved the remix than the original...and I´m sure Mike is going to say something like that too next year!
