    Where in the world is the cd of the month for December Dream in Blue ? I have been a echoes fan since 1997, the echoes soundscape has changed my life. I just hope echoes doesn’t change too much more!

    Yeah. That is a great album too. Whoa! Quincy makes an appearance. :D. Listening to your signature AKG Q460′s as I type. Glad to see you are a listener.
