Tiles' third release from 1999 was a blend of adventurous songwriting, expansive arrangements and soaring melodies.
Presents of Mind garnered praise from Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull and Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater, with the latter taking the band to Europe to support the first leg of the band's Scenes from A Memory tour.
Tiles experimented with additional keyboards, violin, improvisional sections, and lush vocal arrangements, while Terry Brown (Rush) delivered another stellar mix.
This 2004 Special Edition features video content from the band's European tour with Dream Theater and several bonus tracks unreleased from the original Tiles recording sessions.
