shocking that the Olympics allowed a band with the name Fuck Buttons to be on the soundtrack.

How does the iTunes top albums charts work? Is it daily or for the week? On the US iTunes page, it currently says 11th, but it had got as high as 7th from when I was looking. Which is pretty impressive for what is basically a double CD of music.

It's been number 1 on the iTunes UK Album chart for the past 2 days.

So, interesting discovery I just made. "Caliban's Dream" is based on "Dawn of Eden" from Frankenstein, as its foundation. If you listen carefully to the choral part in the background (for example, from 2:10 to 2:40), and to the soprano part (Esme's singing, starting at 4:18 and again at 6:34), it matches "Dawn of Eden".

@Troy McClure Have you found a solution to your problem. If you have I'd be interested to know what the cause was. I've never got anything off itunes but I thought all the files were AAC. I'm going to take a wild guess and say that because they have been purchased from Itunes they are protected to play with only apple products i.e itunes, ipod, iphone etc.
@negative1 Yes it is odd but that was the problem. Can you provide a reliable online source regarding the music conversion thing. This is news to me.

Re: Isles of Wonder - Music for the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games
Found an article here regarding 'Caliban's Dream' with quotes from Alex Trimble, the male vocal singing lead. Alex in particular has some positive comments for Rick:

"I'm really proud of the performance. I have so much respect for the team that put it all together. Danny always made time to sit with me one on one and go through things and see how everything was going and with Rick we worked one on one too. In the studio, on the phone, it just felt so personal. Not like something that's gone out worldwide! I'm sure it'll take a few months for the reality to fully sink in", said Alex Trimble.

No I haven't yet. I have a 120GB Zune player. All of the files minus 'Rez' transferred just fine to it. The odd part was that 'Rez' plays perfectly fine on the laptop through all the different audio players I have. I'll keep searching though for a solution.
