Just got my UK limited edition CD/DVD in the mail today.  For people's 
information "Quietus" and "Mnemonic" are the edited video versions 
which include the extra samples and fuller mix from the videos.  
"Waterphone" and "Chimie du Son" are also edited down.  And be sure to 
check out the full track on the title screen to the DVD.  So, two of 
the best album videos "Luminol" and "Waterphone" aren't here, only one 
of the 'Penultimate Tests', and if I had known the "Totally Together" 
video was going to be on this, I wouldn't have purchased the video 
download from Metropolis.  I think next time Jack&Co should make it 
clear to whatever label their working with in the future that these 
kind of bizarre multiple releases just piss people off.  I put up the 
info on these releases on discogs if people want to know what their 




I don't understand why anyone thinks there needs to be releases 
tailored to different countries.  It's not as if a Meat Beat Manifesto 
fan in the UK would have refused to buy 'Autoimmune' because 'Solid 
Waste' was on it... MBM fans aren't that fickle.  So why would we 
complain about tracks being shorter?

I am also pretty disappointed with the 'limited edition packaging' of 
the UK version - there's nothing special about it (although the sleeve 
looks beautiful) and I really hoped the dvd would have the three 
'Penultimate...' tracks; they're better than some of the tracks on the

well UK versions came out today, although the promised 12 track deluxe 
download isn't there, just the 10-track version. not only that, but 
looking at the track times & comparing to the US release, 3 of the 
tracks are edited versions! so not only do we have to put up with only 
having 10 tracks out of 12 on the full album, but 3 tracks aren't even 
the full version - there is no way i'm paying good money for a cut-down 
version like that. seems impossible to buy the US version for download 
 from the UK as well, wherever i try to get it from won't let me. this 
is so frustrating, what's the thinking behind cutting down the album 
like this? does Jack have any say in this or is it all from the label? 

so i guess i'm going to have to pay out for a US CD copy shipped over 
 from a US retailer - although i'm likely just not to bother i'm 
afraid. i was waiting for the UK CD since it comes with a DVD - but it 
seems you only get 5 videos on it anyway, would have been nice to get 
all the 11 videos that Jack's uploaded to youtube on there, but no. 
disappointing again. just wish there was one format we could buy that 
would have all the material on it - i don't know if this is designed to 
get us buying 2 different formats to get all the material but the only 
effect it's going to have on me is not buying any...

An acknowledged and celebrated innovator in the electronic music scene. 
Jack Dangers continues to stretch sonic boundaries and influence new 
generations of sound activists. As a premiere remixer, producer and 
sound designer, he has played a seminal role in defining tomorrows' 
music today. Past production/remixing projects include: Public Enemy, 
David Bowie, Orbital, Nine Inch Nails, David Byrne, Bush, Depeche Mode, 
and Tower of Power.
Answers Come In Dreams is minimal, textural and cinematic in scope, 
this album follows sound sculptor and music innovator Jack Dangers into 
more experimental territory. An artist who sees the very fluid 
connection between audio and visual, Jack has been creating videos for 
each of the twelve tracks on the record - 5 of which feature on the 
bonus DVD packaged in the CD-pack.
