  1. Unless you like the song alot, is there any point to downloading it?
    Like, is there and clues or anything in it?

  2. YES! I've been waiting so long!

  3. There's no clues, just a kick @$$ song!!

  4. Hey the song is #10 on the top albums, a lot of people have been wating for this.

  5. This is really great - except it only available in the US. Curses...

    Still a good piece, though.

  6. There may be something more to this than just a cool song. Try opening this file on another computer's iTunes program, and you'll see what I mean. The info is completly different, and no artwork is avalible. The song is apparently Cookinhot Styles Volume 2 Drum Skills by Ueberschal. Strange?

  7. Where is this located in iTunes? I searched all over and found nothing with this title. The link in the post only told me that it wasn't currently available in the US?

  8. Yeah, I just looked too. Where did it go? Oh, well. I have it already!!
