Booklet liner notes and layout in progress. Architecture is plotted but not actually programmed yet. Band commentaries yet to be 'married' to the structure. Runtime 3 to 3.5 hours.

Blue Album Special Edition notes: Both music content and packaging layout are in progress. This will be a 2 disc set in the Universal Deluxe Edition series. Lots of cool and unseen photos have been selected for the booklet and packaging and the bonus tracks are in the selection process. Extensive liner notes and all lyrics included. Besides the blue album songs, it will include all blue album era b-sides, a selection of special rarities, and some never before released material. No release schedule known yet.
Album 5 notes: no major changes yet since last update. Pre-production continues: acoustic rehearsals and demo recordings, lots of killer new songs. Rick Rubin to produce album. No start time set yet. More details to come as known.
