MRG232 | Release Date May 6, 2003

Formerly known as The Third Eye Foundation, Matt Elliott's The Mess We Made is indeed something worth changing your stage name for. At turns dark, beautiful, plaintive and frankly rather lovely, this 8-track enchantment is, we are sure, a seminal change of direction for our man in rural France.

Using the ambience and electronics of previous Third Eye Foundation recordings as a backdrop for his contemplative and dark songs, Elliott delivers his most beautiful release yet.

What is the difference between MP3 and FLAC files?

Merge offers the highest quality MP3s possible. They are encoded without DRM using the LAME version 3.97 encoder at non-variable rate of 320 kbps. At this quality level, the sound is essentially indistinguishable from a CD.

We also offer FLAC digital music files. FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an uncompressed audio format. As such, FLAC files provide a perfect digital copy of a given piece of music.

MP3s eliminate audio data in order to reduce file size. FLAC files are by definition 'lossless' and are a perfect digital copy of the original source material. Because of this, a FLAC audio file is much larger in size than an MP3 file. While FLAC audio is ideal if you listen to your music on a higher-end home stereo, or enjoy close-listening on headphones, it does not have as widespread playback support as the MP3 format.

*Note: FLAC files do not work in iTunes.
