I don't know how I feel about the plot changes. I loved the whole original Razia's Shadow because of how the plot was complete enough to follow but vague enough to still feel kind of foreign and mythical. From what I'm hearing and reading they're filling in a lot of details that might ultimately weaken the story/experience because honestly the story itself isn't super strong. It's strength wasn't in the actual story itself but the world it was set in and the music bringing all that to life.
I'm totally basing this off of some live videos and tweets so I'm well aware I could be very off. But from what I love from the original and what I'm seeing now this is how I feel.
I'm not as big of a fan of this version of The Missing Piece or It's True Love compared to the original (I really don't like the male vocalists on either track), but Make Believe is amazing. I'm a huge fan of the album, if my username didn't already show that, and I would love to see this if/when it reaches the stage.
