Colin Murray's Album Track Guide

A single MP3 containing recording's of Radio 1 DJ Colin Murray's comments on each SOTWH album track as he plays them on the Black Hole segment of his show throughout early 2007. Well, Requiem Aeternam and Several Thousand Years comments are missing as he played the first one long before the others, and never played the later. Why not download the album for free and listen to each track inbetween comments?

Each seperate song's comments are separated by a 1 second gap, if you open the file in an audio editor like Goldwave you'll see this easily and can make cuts as you wish.
