This is awesome news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A 77minute track? Are they trying to break records here?
But I can bet it wont be boring, and hopefully they break it into several pieces in the CD.

Whoa, that's great. I guess they have reunited now; that is great news as well. THe fact that they are doing a 77-minute track really makes me respect these people. I would like to get this sometime.
