I pre-ordered the vinyl single and received my mp3 download of Solitary Man from Cherry Red on April 20. I'm hoping that Tunnels of Darkness will follow once the single is released.

That is good news. Personally I'm hoping it turns up on Qobuz so I can get it in flac. I downloaded the free mp3 from Cherry Red, but to be honest haven't listened to it. At 80kbps they really are spoiling us, I suspect ripping the audio from the youtube video with some dodgy shareware would produce a better resolution...

I got an email about it saying I'd been added to the mailing list. The album has a specific website though there isn't a great deal there:

http://www.the-machine-stops.com/

There is a link on there to the download there.

i did not get any email. maybe because my brother used his paypal for the purchase and they messaged the his email. i did get a thank you for your purchase message from them a few days after the purchase though and my bro got a confirmation as well.

edit - i just downloaded the mp3 in that link. it's 80kbps thats poor quality. hopefully a better quality version will be available soon.

My thoughts exactly. Would love a flac option for the eventual single.

"a solitary man" was the only track on the album i didn't like ..
"yum yum" spliced into "tube" sounds way better for the flow..
all in all a top album, ..
only shame is the clarity of the vocals as i just cannot make out what is been sung on half the tracks ..

I luv this cut & the service from 'Cherry Red' was ace. Cannot fault it. All in all a very tidy package :)

yeah i got my vinyl copy a few days back but i don't want to open it unless i have to. i would prefer to download the tracks and keep the vinyl intact.
is there any news on when and where the digital downloads will be available?

I've meanehile been informed that I am to be confronted with the same dilemma, whatever day or year Smugdruggler and myself make our moves

At such time I suppose I will get at it with a razor blade and make love to it with my HUGE stylus if nobody else has taken the plunge or spread news
