So far it's only 2 MB uploaded, so it may take a little while longer than I first thought... maybe an hour or so? But I don't know how big this file will be :-)

This is really exciting!! :-)

wonder how big it is? The last one was around 7 meg. Hope it is bigger now. Very slow upload Mike must have. Is he using a 28.8 modem?

Over 5 megs now - must be bigger than the previous demo and yes, Mike must be using a very slow connection!

I think it's great that the new album is finally close!

And I also like the frontcover. Reminds me a bit of Amarok, those letters Tom Newman carved. smile

I like the cover! looks cool. nice optical illusion effect. hopefully the back of the cover will be just like it. it's dark, but i think it will fit the mood of the music.

wooohoo!!

As a whole, I find the titles quite nice.Taken individually they might be too naive. They remind me of the atmosphere of Myst (I'm a fan of this game) and other video games I like ('Turtle Island' makes me think of Nintendo - I'm also a fan of Nintendo).
I think Mike tried, and probably managed (well, we'll know soon) to capture the best elements of great video games. Video games might not be the main theme of Tres Lunas, but after all, it comes with a game, so they have their importance in this work.

I think it was a pretty nice cover!
And I think the demo is good as well.
So now I've just have to brace myself until the 27. of may...

All the music in the new demo is in mono (the first demo is all stereo), and it's slower (doesn't run well on my TNT2 M64). Maybe it looks a bit better, but it's still ugly for its time.

The moons on the cover look great, but the text is sooo cheesy. It looks like a computer game (well, in some respect it is, but...). There shouldn't be any text on the cover, just the moons, and the title should be on the left, vertical, like on TB3. And no cheesy 3D text..!

Glad to see that Mike has gone back to his 'TSODE look' - http://www.mikeoldfield.org/news/010202.htm
He looked like a hundred years old with white hair.
