Becky, we NEED to set up a forum, for sure!
I agree with the previous comments.
Like Howard, I'm very impressed with the performances in this update. I also really enjoy the stutter-gater effect. I perked up immediately as it was very new and different sounding.
I'll second Becky's desire to hear all the different performances either by sharing or by having an "all performances" tier (even if I could only chose a limited set of album choices that are unique to me).
And the artwork continues to impress.
So much goodness. So many hard choices.
Oh wow, that RKF painting.
Wow, reading all these variations in performances *really* makes me hope that we can set up some kind of forum or something to exchange copies, because I want to hear them all! (Is there an All Versions tier? �)
The variations in emotional tonality in both the performances and the artwork is amazing. Looking forward to the voting on the Canon copies, and I really hope that the final choices ending being highly distinct from each other, reflecting these ranges of interpretation. Likewise the underlying music should be culled from the most evocatively different renders as well. I really like that "stutter-gater" effect, it definitely creates a certain kind of vacuum noise that contrasts well with an emotive performance.
