Well, since I assume you prefer his "atmospheric space" style..you have made a very good selection!

I am very eager to see what Roach will release this year.... his music is like a drug really..can't get enough of it...
I guess he could release a new album each month if he wanted too..but I think I read somewhere in an interview..that he has set
an policy to not release more then 5-6 albums per year..to avoid quanity instead of quality...
However..I still think he should do as Robert Rich has done recently, he has begin to release "internet only" releases...
Might be a good idea for Roach aswell..

Hmm "internet only" you mean download albums or CD albums only available through his webstore ? Personally I don't like download only albums as I prefer to have the physical media in my shelf instead of some files on my hard drive. But I think this is another discussion ;)

I highly doubt SR will ever release anything as a download, from what I know of his opinion on the subject.  Personally I don't like download only albums either.  I was disappointed to not be able to buy a CD of the new Max Corbacho "Breathstream." This is a download only as well.

I known how you feel, i was disappointed too at first, but hey, you can download it as FLAC, decompress,  burn your own CD as.Wav and print the artwork for yourself. I suppose this is the next best thing to a cd release. Just a bit more work (It lets you get involved with the cd product creation i suppose).

Great album by the way....

What about something released only as a podcast, any problems with that?
Take care.
