                    ******* ONLY A MATTER OF TIME *******
                   
 "When Dream And Day Unit" has a particular charm to me; and unlike many DT
fans, I do love all those songs ( Afterlife, The Ones Who Helped To Set The 
Sun,...).And Myung plays as a mad (he seems inspired by Iron Maiden's bass
but his way of playing is really much more difficult).
 Here is one of the easiest "When Dream And Day Unit" songs:

 I m not able to listen to what Myung plays from now on,
because my "when dream and day unit" tape is too dreadfully recorded...
 I ll give you the rest of the song when I buy the CD...(or send it to me if
you find it).
