"The intent behind "Inversions of the Colossus" lies halfway between the classic in-between albums EP, and an instrumental version of "the Colossus". So there were 7 vocal songs on "the Colossus", and I knew that releasing instrumentals of these would be smart. After all, a lot of people buy rjd2 albums for the production, not for the vocals-just being honest here! :) SO-all of those 7 songs become instrumental versions of themselves. then, there are 7 "new" songs. 2 of these new songs are vocal, so it's not ENTIRELY accurate to call this a completely instrumental album, but it's very close.
All in all, its 14 tracks long. The title was chosen because I want to make sure it's not seen as an entirely new album, but at the same time "Colossus-Instrumentals" is not an accurate title. so, "Inversions of the Colossus" is about as close to an accurate description as I think I can get."
