This is madness indeed. Probably even better than ubi19 (if that was ever possible).

Really getting the funk vibes on this one, that's right up my alley, and that FM synthesis is simply delicious.

Blitz Lunar just broke my jaw with that Cascade Masquerade and Torben Hansen got me barrel rolling on the freaking ceiling with Cascades.

Oh, and did I mention that the cover art is made of pure win. Props to Tsuyoshi Shimokura.

But the real shock comes from the pricetag: can't believe that in this day and age one can listen to something this awesome for free.

If you haven't already, GET THIS ALBUM, NAO! :)

ooer, i hope i'm not held to account for hospital fees! seriously thanks :) great to see that you enjoyed it.

this release blows my mind too. i've listened to it through from start to finish probably 10 times or more. such a cool thing to be part of, really, and i'm humbled by the lineup. the reactions (particularly from the japanese audience via twitter) have also been incredible.

Oh, and did I mention that the cover art is made of pure win.

haha, yep. when i first saw it my jaw dropped in disbelief, then i burst out laughing. even now i stop and gaze at it for ages. totally cool. can't wait to see the hi-res version.

no idea about shogun, tsuyoshi shimokura, utabi hirokawa or hex125. i don't know if hally has a personal site and i gather bomb boy did but doesn't at the moment.

hope that helps a bit.
