Heh!
I'm really enjoying it though it's a shame the quality on the stream isn't fantastic. At least it's not long til the real thing.

I was expecting the quality to be like absolute crap, but it's actually pretty decent. And yeah: only a few more days.

*flails for Ben's attention*

Say, who's the mezzo on "Boxing?" She's got a nice timbre.

I'm really glad we can listen to them in their full length for free. I was curious enough to really want to hear the songs once or twice, but beyond that it's not something I would really want to pay to listen to all the time. I'd rather listen to the real tracks, personally.

I sorta feel the same way but these are some extremly talented peeps and they've came up some very delicious arrangements. Overall, I say the album is pretty tasty.
HOLY CRAP!!!!

I like You Don't Know me and Effington a lot. I'll think I'll get those. I would like Evaporated but it bothers me how slow they sing it.

Figures. I've been waiting two weeks hoping that a leak like this would crop up so I could have a listen before deciding to drop ten bucks. It's only fitting that I find this the very day after ordering the cd :P

I like what I'm hearing. I can't imagine I'll listen to it very often, but I've wasted money on music that was much, much worse.

An interesting listen - thanks for finding that! Not sure about Evaporated though... sounds a bit like 'Away in a Manger', and the duet-style kinda negates the isolative message of the song a bit?

Sounds good. Would have to agree about Evaporated. Fair is definitely my favourite.

I agree about Evaportated too. It sounds like an old church hymn having what little life is there squeezed out of it.  

I'm really liking all of the other arrangements though.
