We're heading away from our usual song approach with this episode and instead devoting this podcast to "At The End Of Paths Taken" to mark the 15th anniversary of the album's release in April 2007 - where did all those years go...
Rather than look at specific songs, we're taking an overview of the album as a whole, one where the band went in for radical change as far as the writing and recording of the album went, introducing a new producer and strings to the overall mix, both to dramatic effect.
With the help of Michael Timmins and Alan Anton - plus some rare recordings from the writing and recording sessions - we'll chart the album from its conception through to its release.
As well as that, we talk about a possible live future for a record that is something of a hidden gem within the band's catalogue.
If you haven't heard it in a while, hopefully this will give you a reason to dig it out again. You really should, it's one of the band's very best records.
