I want some artwork and imformation for my money..... sorry ..
You may find it grows on you. But one thing about Tim is that he never makes two albums that are too similar. I sometimes wish he would, but on the whole it's maybe better that he explores different areas.
No, there aren't any vocals from Tim, but there are some superb female vocals on the last track, Fire Dance.
I agree with you about the lack of a CD. I'd definitely prefer one as well, as it seems many of us would. But this seems to be one of the grim realities of the sad state of the music business. There's talentless crap being released on CD in bucketloads, but people like Tim and many others have to eke out a living on the edges of things. Still, Tim's making good use of the opportunities available and finding the best ways to get his music out there.
Having said that, a more high quality file format would be preferable, and I hope Tim can offer that later. Regarding "you can rip them from youtube so whats the point?" - there's a very important point that if people rip things from YouTube instead of buying them, Tim doesn't get paid. But I'm assuming you mean people will do that if they don't have the incentive of a better quality format, and not that you'd do that.
Anyway, a good album and it's great that it's available at all. If Tim could offer a higher quality format, and even some artwork as well, that would be even better.
