Hypothetical = Definitive Edition = (CD)
There is very little difference between this new edition and the Limited Edition version from 2001 on Inside Out. However, for those that only had the regular first pressing of this release you will want to get this Definitive Edition because it has the expanded 24 page booklet with more photos and producer notes. This new one contains the 3 live tracks from Hypothetical that were included on the now out of print 2002 Concert In Paris as bonus tracks.

There may not be the gut wrenching riffs of power, yet the power that emanates from the speakers is formidable during the heavier sections. This is soft and lush on the ears because the vocal harmonies, much like with Shadow Gallery, are so omnipresent and divine. The velvety production quality doesn't hurt either. Amazingly, despite all of this, West's keyboard runs are more dominant, majestic and bombastic than ever. Just about every song has an ethereal intro or outro or bridge that has been electronically enhanced by West. On previous albums we have not heard the drummer play too much o
