By Brian Lumley at Rumblings From The Man Cave

I just read an unsettling article that talks about how, literally, our future is up for sale.

Friday analysis - plenty to ponder in China
Posted at

Under Friday's very overcast skies the teams focused mainly on learning about set-up, actuation of their drag reduction rear wings, KERS and how the hard and soft compound Pirelli tyres behaved on the Shanghai International Circuit. The track remained slippery throughout the day, and generally tyre degradation levels seem to be between those in Melbourne and Malaysia, with Pirelli expecting most to pit twice on race day. We take a team-by-team look at progress...

Mark Webber Q&A: KERS is vital - we need it to work
Posted at

After a KERS failure bogged his Red Bull down at the start, last weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix became an exercise in damage limitation for Mark Webber. Although the RB7's inherent pace, some canny strategy choices and Webber's own determined driving eventually saw him just miss out on a podium place with a strong fourth-place finish, the Australian is targeting much more from this weekend's Chinese race - if his KERS works...

OK, a lot's been happening with Born Again this week. First the news came out on Apr 10 that it was being released on May 30th. Then on Apr 11th, I had an additional post with some track details and cover art. But there were still a few issues regarding this. Primarily whether or not this is the famed "proper mix" or a remaster, as the news didn't say, and the formal press release (shown below) didn't have info on it. I've started looking into a lot of the fiddly details regarding this release...

More Details about Born Again 2 CD Deluxe Edition
By Joe Siegler at Black Sabbath Online

Last night I posted the news that the long awaited 2 CD Deluxe Edition of Born Again is to be released May 30th. This came from a track listing at Amazon UK's site.

I was sent some artwork for the album, which clearly shows the source and content of the tracks. Here's an update on the track listing for the album...
