Alan Parsons Art & Science of Sound

Anyone else stoked about the Alan Parsons 'Art & Science of Sound' series he's doing at the minute? I personally cannot wait to see it as an insight into how this legend works, though I am begining to get frustrated at the wait for the 3 DVD set itself. It has been pushed back so many times now and i've had it pre-ordered for ages! Has anyone else pre-ordered it for that matter and what do you think of what you've seen so far and what are you looking forward to seeing?

I've also pre-ordered the dvd set but am being patient at the moment...hopefully they have everything recorded and are just editing at this point. Isn't the next installment of downloads supposed to be this week (the week of the 12th)?

I really liked the first installments of videos. I learned a couple pretty damn cool things and they were entertaining at the same time. I also don't know too many people that wouldn't pay $100 to listen to Alan Parsons talk the sh!t for a couple hours. The other cool thing is he's getting the cream of the crop of people to interview which is awesome. I would rather them do it right than be pressed to put it out too quickly IMO.

At the same time though they have to know that the delay is going to piss some people off and they'll be losing money because of it. Hopefully Alan can get off his tour long enough to throw a bunch of time at this at get it progressing a little faster.

clips look like it would be fantastic for newbies.

looks like it was really well filmed, solid narration (Billy Bob) and doesn't appear to be too overly serious (i.e., it seems both interesting and informative)

should be a great resource. can't argue with that price either! ($0.99 to stream each section)

I am downloading them from the ASSR site and am loving it. Unless the DVD versions are different I think I'll keep to getting them a few at a time. For those that have Apple TV or something similar this way you can get them now. It would be nice for the extra interviews on the site that you can stream for free to be available for download. Maybe through the podcast?

I don't mean to sound condescending, but can somebody who's purchased the material make some sort of qualitative statement regarding the target market of the DVD's?

Meaning, are these going to benefit people who have worked in professional studios for years, or are they geared more towards people who have no prior knowledge of recording? Somewhere in between? Beginners? Intermediates? Experts?

I'd love to throw down the money for the DVD set and call it a day, but I'd hate to waste a C note on something that wasn't going to constructively add to the skill set I already have. No offense or disrespect to Alan Parsons, of course.

Eye In The Sky was such a classic, a masterpiece. It was really expansive WRT lyrics, melody, harmony and rhythm. Then, it was doubly expansive WRT the art & science of mixing & mastering. I'm very enthused that some of the older artists who put out great stuff during my favorite era (British Rock Subgenres, 1978-1982) are still involved in songcrafting.
