The photos for this album were taken at Lighthouse Beach, Port Macquarie, Australia - much like the shots taken
for Besidewalk Plight. This album was originally intended as a follow-up.
I started working on Twice Midnight after completing Besidewalk Plight,
intending this to be my third album. However, the album didn't progress too well.
I shelved Twice Midnight and set to work on Hidden in the Beyond. I also started
The Unravelling of Travelling. I ended up with three albums in progress at the same time.
In the end, I finished and released The Unravelling of Travelling just two months before I released
Twice Midnight. But as most of Twice Midnight was written earlier, it felt like a bit of
a backwards step.
So, I now consider Twice Midnight to be my third album proper, even if it wasn't
released in that order.
Several of the tracks are linked in some way:
- Midnight theme - this features in Midnight 1, Twilight Tide, Prosperity, and Midnight 2.
It also features in "Take Me Downstairs" from The Unravelling of Travelling - which was originally
written for Twice Midnight. As a result, it creates a link between the two albums.
- Waiting for the Sun - the riff pattern features at the start of Opposites Attract, as a
way to link the tracks together.
- Moon Eclipse - towards the end of the album, Solar Eclipse appears as a remix of Moon Eclipse.
- Woodland Clearing - Between the Trees was written as an immediate follow-up to Woodland Clearing,
with an intro intended to continue and advance the feel of Woodland Clearing. Unfortunately the
track itself just wasn't that good.
- Circumference - the original version of this track is included as a bonus track. A newer remix,
Radial Circumference, appears in the main album track listing.
- Gravity (Ben's Low Gravity Remix) - despite being a bonus track, this is a remix of Gravity from
Besidewalk Plight - thereby linking those two albums together, too.
- Twice Midnight - the aforementioned Midnight theme links a few tracks together. However, there's
a more obvious link between two tracks and also the album title - Midnight 1 is a short intro, and
Midnight 2 develops its ideas into a much longer track.
