Great idea. This is works much better as an album than either of its parents and is a very worthwhile exercise as both contain rewarding songs but fail to ignite in their original forms.

Funny the degree to which the weight of expectation colours judgement though. I had a spell of listening to each of these albums last year; Around The Sun in a bid to give it a second chance and Accelerate with all the expectant excitement of the much touted "return to form". Inevitably I was pleasantly surprised by Around The Sun and disappointed by Accelerate.

Revisiting Accelerate this year, without any preconceptions, I found it a much better album than I first thought.
