  1. Great sounds, but they can’t be downloaded on soundcloud as a group … why? Or rather, can you make it possible. Thanks.

  2. i´m still strugglin with tempest last 4 songs including scarlet town, i´ve got to listen to the lyrics closely, cause english in not my native language, but musicly i think the songs are a little boring. The good news is that bob is allowing is guitar players to play some solos instead of just licks, a very good all along the w., but it looks or sounds that the man is back with is vocal changin tones, wich sometimes gives a strange melody to the songs and sometimes take the melody out of the songs. Anyhow i´ve enjoyed it, just hope he starts playing new songs for the rest of the year. i´ve got my tickets for some november shows and most of all i´m glad the man is still playin.
