Re: Isn't it "on the edge" instead of "at the edge"?

At the edge sounds proper to me, as a native English speaker. On the edge of time would also be correct, however I don't think its the way someone would actually choose to say it.

I would have been disappointed with that setlist. For me the only song I'm really crazy about on there is In The Name of God. Dance of Eternity is good but not at the top of my list for DT instrumentals.

Just realized also there wasn't a single awake/I&W track on that setlist, a big shame imo.
