Curious though, I always thought that the Quicktime and Standard Windows Synth were in fact a dry versions of the Sound Canvas.

Some disorganized thoughts:
- For the most part these sound sufficiently true to the originals.
- I like the more upbeat tracks like Fat Man and Freedom, but then that's always been true.
- The strings in the second half of Flippant are still 'slow on the draw', giving it an anemic waa waa sound.
- The vocals on Aliens Again seem more processed. Also, for some reason I remember the rhythmic soprano line from Rushing in this song, but I am mistaken.
- What About Bob particularly benefits from the added reverb.
- In Splash, some of the melody gets indistinct in the low register, though it's probably the slow attack I hear in Flippant again.

I suppose my main reason for posting is so you know people are listening to this and appreciate what you're doing. I hope more people weigh in with comments, since we surely have better music critics around here than myself.
