Just wake up and the first thing I do is check the site and it's there. Awesome.

Looking forward to the other album more than this one, but this is still great :)

did no one noticed that there must be an error?0=2 and 0 have been available as stereo-mixes before,the new are,along with the rest of the album,all mono mixes.compare your 0=2 gsl-version with this one,it's a different mix...and it sounds awful,I guess all the other track are also wrong

--> here you can hear the old 0=2 and now go listen to

i'm pretty sure Omar did it like that for a reason, i personally am enjoying this album, it's different then his other releases, i appreciate his albums just changing and changing.

where's the (changing) point in re-releasing old material in mono when now certain parts are barely audible?
I mean you can barely hear the second acoustic guitar on 0=2 now...

Yeah I noticed that the whole album is mono. I originally assumed it was just supposed to be like that but it's possible that it's a mistake. Someone should ask Cathy about it. The original versions of at least three of the tracks weren't mono.

Edit: I just asked about it.

It is with such great pleasure that we announce the release of this special album through Rodriguez Lopez Productions. It was made quite some time ago between two very close friends and two amazing musicians. When Omar and I talked about releasing this he had always said it was something he did not want to sell, that he felt strongly about having it be free as it was never done for any kind of commercial reason, nor was it recorded in some big studio or mixed and mastered by some big expensive place. It was an honest release of music amongst two people who share a bond and love for making it. I love that thinking and feeling. I asked him if we could do something that reflected this honest love of creating. So we decided to use our digital store system so we could make it free for anyone, but also offer people to be able to donate what they could and to then give any money raised to something we all find to be so important here and that is the continuation of art and music to be nurtured, exposed and available to all people. So you can go and download this album by Omar Rodriguez Lopez & John Frusciante for FREE in any file size by entering $0.00 when prompted - it will ask for your email but you don't have to stay subscribed to our mailing list if you don't want to either. Or you can fill in any amount you might care to donate to benefit "Keeping Music In Schools" programs. We will be donating all the proceeds to different schools and organizations that help provide instruments, and teachers, supporting great mentors that will encourage creativity. This release is just one of more to come that will be charity albums from Sargent House and Rodriguez Lopez Productions.

Each one teach one.

This is a great album! I have listened to it about 15 times since I downloaded it last night and this morning. Another masterpiece from 2 of my favorite musicians. Was exactly what I was thinking this was going to sound like. The quartet albums going to kick ass as well!

I simply LOVE the knocking on the door and the chirping birds (4:17; 5:45). Nice little cozy album. Pretty personal, and a little sad, as always.
