From the bands website: http://www.kamelot.com/news.htm


12 February 2008 | "Ghost Opera" reissue to include bonus features

Kamelot will reissue it's classic "Ghost Opera" album on March 28 (Germany), March 31 (rest of Europe) and April 8 (USA/Canada) under the title of Ghost Opera - The Second Coming, enhanced with lots of interesting features. The album will be released as a double CD limited edition slipcase design. This sophisticated and comprehensive package includes the CD featuring all the songs from the regular album, plus ten additional live tracks recorded live in Belgrade, Serbia during the band's 2007 World Tour, plus the bonus tracks Season's End, The Pendulous Fall, Epilogue and the remix of Rule the World. Additionally the two videos for The Human Stain and Memento Mori (live) and on top of that, the package features new artwork and a comprehensive booklet.

Ghost Opera - The Second Coming track listing:

CD 1: Ghost Opera
01. Solitaire
02. Rule the World
03. Ghost Opera
04. The Human Stain
05. Blücher
06. Love You to Death
07. Up Through the Ashes
08. Mourning Star
09. Silence of the Darkness
10. Anthem

Almost certainly, but I dont have Ghost Opera yet (probably a good idea to get it before we go to see them as GH will make up the bulk of the set list) and I do like the idea of having a (largely) live disc with it. Certainly a better deal than the two radio edits that came with the digi pack version of The Black Halo.

^^oh, by all means get it if you haven't got the album...I just think it is a rather cynical marketing ploy to milk what is a decidely mediocre album for all it is worth.  This phenomenon is becoming increasingly common, and is largely down to the record companies...

I guess it's not bad if you don't have the album, but this seems to be a worthless buy for owners.
