    Most curious – I have all the previous Tunng albums so I was pleased to find the tracks from the new one available to download. I downloaded initially from the e-mail link via my netbook. This isn’t the way to hear music at its best so I copied them to my media PC. MediaMonket wouldn’t play then properly at alI – tracks jumped, other played for just a few seconds. Bizarrely I can play them from the Media on the netbook (ie.e across the neetwork) on MediaMonkey.

    I downloaded the tracks afresh on the media PC – same result. The LSO sample was also very iffy.

    Charlie Winston and Creole Choir downloads absolutely superb. Peter Gabriel also OK but despite being a fan of PC from his Genesis I’m bored to tears with this album.

    Hi David,
    Thanks for letting us know and we’re looking into this, as these tracks should work perfectly well, just like the other ones.
    Kind regards,

    Not to be pedantic, but it’s their third album.
