Dream Theater: Mike Portnoy Explains The Deluxe Box Set.

May 10, 2009

In the latest money grab scheme venture, Dream Theater and Roadrunner Records are releasing a special “Black Clouds & Silver Linings” Deluxe Collector’s Edition Box Set.

Mike Portnoy explains why hardcore Dream Theater fans (suckers) should spend their hard-earned money on the box set. Watch the video here.

The box set includes the “Black Clouds & Silver Linings”3-Disc Limited Edition, Limited Edition Audiophile 180-Gram Double LP Set with Exclusive Artwork from Hugh Syme, exclusive Dream Theater mouse pad (WOW! – endsarc), BC&SL Litograph and BC&SL “Producer’s Edition” Disc Includes Isolated Audio Tracks of the Entire Album.

The “Producer’s Edition” Disc contains separate audio tracks that can be mixed and re-mixed. Just like what Nine Inch Nails had given their fans, but Dream Theater and Roadrunner Records are making the fans coughing up some money for the tracks.

OK, that’s enough wisecracks from me.

“Black Clouds & Silver Linings” is available on:
