Ruk, Håkon - I'll have a talk with my wife and see what she says about it. Thanks for the love, I'm going to have to make a sequel!

This album has been on my playlist ever since its debut on iTunes and it just keeps getting better.
Channels, Hexadecimal, Scarlet, Washed Out... truly great stuff with just that perfect portion of melancholia.

Archmage: He's already spoken for =)

I love every bit of it. And it keeps growing on me every time I listen to it. Full notch, you are awesome Stellan!

The only thing I'm missing here is a nice interface. Surely the guys at Booze -from whom we are used to see amazing demos- could have given Dane some help with this. He already had his hands full doing code-music-gfx. Such wonderful SID tunes deserve a better treatment than this simple selection screen.
For the music I give a 10 but as a whole (lack of interface) drags it down a bit.

Stellan, you make greatness happen again!
Nocturne must be my favorite here, followed by Goldie, I can listen to those for hours.

Amazing release! I really feel the efforts behind these tunes shine through! Excellent melodies, variations and good arrangements.

As a favorite, besides the extreme end-solos in Scarlet, Hexadecimal is the tune I enjoyed the best at first listen.

Will surely drop back to listen more to this nice musicdisk while working. I heared rumours of Spotify release as well, so I'll probably be playing it even more often from there ;)

Glad you seem to like it, as I think the tunes are quite solid, both from a musical and technical viewpoint.

For the C64 version I left out most of the previously released stuff (Channels, Alpha Bitch, Melonade and Revolved) that ended up on the album release. All in all a nice bookend to the last 12 months.

Having said that, it's time to continue working on tune #4 for the next album/collection. :)

Thumbs up, esp 4 a "mono" version of the best stereo .SID tune I know. Both versions of Hexadecimal (no matter if 2 or 1 SID) are ubergreat listening to, great material to loop for ages :)

Awesome prod! Top notch music as usual, but you forgot to implement an automagic jump-to-next-tune-mode it seems..

Great music collection Dane & Hcl . the sound with a lot of passion and inspiration like always expected from Dane . your bring your music to master level. did you have thought to make your music on musical instrumens like Piano or organ ? think could be really good for more public to hear your music not only in Sid

Great collection! Too bad the release was a few days delayed, but.. now we can forget :).

Where is Jailbird? Yepp, you tell me :(. But we don't necessarily need Jb for a music disk..
