Update 1: Audio boost.
With a little mixing magic I was able to undo both the fade-in and fade-out. The song should play at a fairly constant sound level.
"Impossibly soft (so much so that you cant hear the first 35 seconds of the studio version), impossibly heavy (the 2:12 mark blows many a speaker)"
"If you're going to call a song Porcelina of the Vast Oceans, it damn well better be a nine-minute, multi-part epic with Rush-worthy sprawl and guitar grandiosity, and a legitimately swooning chorus. We'll give it to 'em." -A.U.
