Even more impressive considering they don't sell any John Cage.

So what's the sound of one hand clapping? I don't know, but the iTMS is charging .99 a piece for it. hahaha

Amazing. I bought one of these (Guster) when I purchased an album last month. I had to do a double take after I listened a few times, that one of the tracks was actually silent and called "silence".

Is the iTMS encoding the secret hidden track silences as a separate track accidentally?
