    It is my great pleasure to introduce:

    maudlin of the Well - Part The Second (2009)

    1. An Excerpt From 6,000,000,000,000 Miles Before the First, or, The Revisitation of the Blue Ghost (1999-2009)

    2. Another Excerpt: Keep Light Near You, Even When Dying (1997-2009)

    3. Rose Quartz Turning to Glass (1997-2009)

    4. Clover Garland Island (2007-2009)

    5. Laboratories of the Invisible World (Rollerskating the Cosmic Palmistric Postborder) (2005-2009)

    ----

    It's done. Please visit http://www.maudlinofthewell.net to listen and to download (more on that below).

    It has been a truly extraordinary experience getting to make this record. It is absolutely humbling that so many people felt this strongly about maudlin of the Well! We would like to thank all of you for your support and generosity. Before I get to rambling, some things:

    There are three versions, mp3, WAV, and FLAC. FLAC is the highest quality, followed by WAV, followed by mp3. The mp3s sound great, however, so don't be shy or think you're getting something second-rate grabbing them. Each format is contained in a ZIP archive with the album artwork and lyrics in jpg format.

    We decided last minute not to do CD ISOs, and in their place have simply included a zip archive of 16b/44.1kHz .wav files.

    Each archive has an associated .torrent file. BitTorrent will be the only method (at least for now) to get the FLAC and WAV versions. The mp3 archive is available for direct download from the website.

    If any of this technical stuff confuses you or you're not sure which version to get, please just download the mp3s direct from the site, I promise they sound fantastic.

    WE NEED SEEDERS! If you are bittorrent capable, please grab the torrents and leave them up when you are finished downloading! The first few hours are certain to be rocky for torrenting, but if enough people get their hands on it and get it seeding, it will work out.

    So that's it. Please download, listen, enjoy. And thank you all once again.

    congratulations to greg for finally being able to stick a maiden-esque part into a motW song, the guitar harmony at about 6:45 of the last track!

    loving this fellas, thanks.

    So, um, apparently something is wrong with your FLAC encoder?

    Deez FLACs cannot be decoded:

    Edit: Just to be clear, that message was from the Output Message thing of my VLC player. Listening to Blue Ghost Revisited, and it seems fine. Maybe I was just being punished for listening out of order?

    Hmmm first I've heard of issues with the FLACs - if you keep having problems (or anyone else does) please let me know!

    FWIW I just grabbed a new copy of the FLACs and they appear fine in my copy of VLC. Maybe re-download it?

    Agreed. Did Byron write the lyrics?

    Toby can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe all the lyrics were written by Byron, yes. The dude, not the Lord.

    Everyone should make sure to click and listen to the album streaming on the website instead of simply downloading the mp3s...maybe I didn't read thoroughly somewhere, but I didn't know each song had its own animated/art page if you click them them all. They're beautiful!

    Sam, one idea might be to hyperlinkify the song titles in the upper right of the index page. If you're worried about people cherrypicking songs out of order, well, first of all, they can do that anyway by clicking "next" a bunch, but secondly you can just hyperlinkify the first song (it's where I naturally clicked when I looked at the page).
