on the deluxe edition is O supposed to be shorter than it is on the standard edition because of the inclusion of O Part Two as a bonus track?

I had the exact same question, why is the itunes version so much longer than the other versions of the song! even if it included part 2 it is too long

Does anyone else who purchased the iTunes version have the same problem? "Fly On" finishes at the 3:50 mark and then it's silence until about 6:20 when "O" kicks in. Not sure if it is just me hence I'm checking, but if it is supposed to be like that it's a right pain the neck especially as it's my favourite track and I can't listen to it on repeat!!

That's cause it's a hidden track, leaving a long gap, however annoying, is not an uncommon practice. Many, many bands have done it. That being said, yes on the deluxe version they cut the long gap, probably cause 3 more songs follow and it probably wouldn't make much sense

Makes sense, I was only surprised as the gap wasn't there when streaming the album from iTunes the week before. Seemed to work fine without the gap there but I understand why it's included now.

For the Viny l version it is too. I haven't timed but I'd say it is the same length than the regular CD version.
