I dunno how else to tell you this, but delays usually mean a drop in quality, not the other way around. In almost any industry, when a product takes significantly more than a reasonable amount of time to produce, that's typically a sign the project has been mismanaged or just failed entirely in it's goals.
I still remember the yearning and insane antecipation for Tool's new album only for them to *finally* present an amalgam of old ideas and boring jams that were kept in a hard drive for years and turned into songs with lyrics (let's not forget the useless interludes). Of course the AOTY accolades rained down on it, and I guess the same thing would happen with Jari's stash of recluse material.
That being said, The Way of the Fire has been played live since 2011 and I really like it. I don't know why they picked that one for live playing so long ago, but if it's finished, everyone knows it and the backing tracks of synths, orchestra and vocals are already there, why didn't they release it as a single? And then repeat the process for the other songs
