away from my phone and hard copy (ta for signing it when you visited Dublin) so i'm delighted to have this version to fall back into, like the arms of a well loved armchair.

Listened to your album last night via the free version you posted, went back to listen to it again today... then I broke down and ordered a physical copy of it. I suppose more proof that artists offering their material for free doesn't discourage people from eventually buying a physical copy. Sometimes it's just the hook that's needed to reel us into a sale, no? Thanks for the music, and Cheers!

I have Fifty Stories stuck in my head now - I'm only worried that it's "stickyness" will eventually degrade my love for it. Though Everything Alive Will Die Someday is definately my favorite. Can we get George on the next America's Got Talent? I'd totally pay to see him in Vegas.

INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!

Finally got a chance to hear it all the way through. Absolutely amazing. In addition to thanking George and Ms. Information, I have to send a "here, here" to the amazing Slau for a wonderfully awesome production and mixing job!

Totally awesome music.. as always! have back ordered the cd, cant wait to get it! (is small comfort supposed to end so abruptly mid word?)

downloaded the album off CDBaby on the 16th... haven't commented before now because I've been too busy listening to it on repeat.

I'm loathe to pin down just one favourite but... well.... it's between Fifty Stories, Atlanta, and Death from the Skies.

(I must have heard DftS a few dozen times now, and the Phil Plait contribution still, *still* makes me happy inside. Which is really weird, considering the subject matter. Er.)

Whoa, longest comment ever. Anyway. I adore the album. Thank you George (SO MUCH). Thank you Donna. You guys are seriously the most awesome people on the planet.

Joseph K

Great! Loved many of the versions more than any versions I've heard these past few years (you can put the others on the box set).
Waiting for the physical one, which I'll be buying for the designing.

jaranath

For some reason, "Sviatoslav Lobster" is currently my favorite. I keep thinking I oughta prefer "God is Not Great", especially with that astonishing intro, or "Small Comfort", 'cause, well...it's "Small Comfort" fer cryin' out loud! But...nope. Red plastic crustaceans float my boat, apparently.

J. D. Mack
nine and a half years ago

Yes, Greg, you did. And I laughed heartily when I heard that just after the use of the word "sun" in the lyric!

Only got to listen to this once via a coworker's iPod (long story - my computer's an old POS, no audio/visual): out of the songs I hadn't heard before - "Death from the Skies", a riot! Loved this! "Atlanta", oh my, you made my heart quake; your voice was perfect, there was a moment where your voice faded into horn (sorry, I have no idea how to get across what I mean in "musical language") that was stunning; just lovely. Looking forward to the physical CD and getting to know these songs better.

Bryan

Thank you for this George! definitely going to get the album.

GregB

Awesome Awesome Awesome!

Looks like CDBaby only has the download at the moment. But as soon as the physical CD is available I'm getting it and the 4 other George CD's I don't have.

Wait, did I just hear "Heart of the sunrise" in the middle of Happy Birthday Baby? Coolness.

Marvin

Saturday morning, 8:40 AM CST. Woke up humming "It's the great equating factor in the world."

While I'm waiting for the physical CD, (I want that ticket!), I've been having fun cutting the MP3 into separate tracks and adding the tags and album art to each file.

Karin
nine and a half years ago

Thanks for podcasting this! Pure awesomeness. I haven't bought an actual CD in who knows how long, but I'm buying this one when it becomes available.
Thanks again George, you rock!

Josh R.

I enjoyed the album. When I Was Your Age is going in my "daughter playlist" for car trips.

Ken Larson

Great Album Geo! I really enjoyed it.

Have you considered doing a deluxe version on iTunes with a PDF of the 20 page booklet? I don't know if it's possible for independent artists yet, but I'd pay extra for something like that.

I'm trying to keep away from physical media (no more room!!) and it would be great way to get the extras.

Perhaps you could sell a PDF on your site...

Thanks again.

Jessica

Terry Whelan
