Missing tracks are apparently an accident, should hopefully be uploaded soon.

I'm assuming "44?" means there's a hidden bonus.

I'm still not spending £30 for one or two bonus tracks.

Yeah, that’s not tempting me. Up to 49 tracks now, still saying 44?

The only track I don't have is "ext tx". Looks like you can buy them individually so might pick that up to complete my E7 collection

I'm going to hold off on getting anything from the E7 Trilogy for now. The track times for e7.001 are all messed up and the track Far Seeker is playing Sand to Ocean...
Looking at the track times below, looks like the upload was messed up after track 4.

1. Hopiate 07:31
2. Triple Circles 04:02
3. Somewhere Outside 01:36
4. Ritualised 04:51
5. Time Cone 03:33 (short)
6. Solar Signal 00:47 (really short)
7. Sand To Ocean 02:29 (short)
8. Far Seeker 03:18 (plays Sand to Ocean)
9. Slowly Slipped Away 03:35 (short)
10. Visibility Accumulation 02:13 (short)
11. I Am Error 04:31 (longer)
12. Colour Primary 02:19 (longer)
13. Time Passed The Sun 01:27 (very short)
14. Ebb Flow 04:58 (longer)
15. Avoiding Mirrors 02:41 (short)
16. Clone A9 03:12 (short)
17. Only in Memories 03:22 (longer)
18. ext tx 02:01 (new???)

Something is not right there and I am not going to pay to find out what.

The runtime from 'Time Cone' to 'ext tx' is exactly the same as the runtime from 'Time Cone' to 'Only in Memories' on the earlier release, so it's the same material just indexed differently. The synth environment at the end of 'Time Cone' has been given its own index, which basically means every track after it has the wrong title. 'ext tx' is just 'Only in Memories' renamed, so there's no bonus track.

Thanks for clearing that up Ross! I'm actually glad to hear that there wasn't any additional material on the bundle!

The outro to Time Cone has been renamed Cone-Seq9, making everything else line up correctly again.

And removing the mysteriously titled 'ext tx' - so I guess that was just a mistake. So it looks like there are no bonus tracks at all. It's just the tracks from the trilogy, with Time Cone somewhat strangely being chopped into two separate tracks? I guess there's no reason to buy, other than for people who don't own the individual releases (it's slightly cheaper than buying the 3 separately).

Yeah, it’s a fiver cheaper so anyone who doesn’t have any and wants the digital will be better off picking it up than the separate ones.

I’m not sure how well it hangs together as a single listening experience. It’s so long, around three hours, and I’ve listened to them all separately so much that it’s hard to take in as an individual thing.

I had a chance to listen to the entire trilogy on a long train ride last month. I personally found it to be a surprisingly cohesive listening experience!

finally listened to 7.003. I like future testaments, kwahuu and I'm eating here, desolate stretch of night road and where all is ending are nice, nothing else really grabbed me though. a lot of it kind of sounds unfinished to me. like there's some beats and then that's it.

on the whole id definitely say the e7 trilogy is my least favourite environments and probably my least favourite fsol albums other than 2020 calendar. especially after how good 4-5-6 were, this has been really underwhelming and disappointing. hopefully 8 will be another big change and have some big tunes and stuff on again!
