    it's really tough to make list of favorites, it is bound to change so quickly. right now among my dearest ones are - sky limits - in escaping lakes - vestiges of an inherent melancholy - engaged touches - zigzag

    I wanted to ask that too because I love seeking out new Celer albums that are really good that I may have not otherwise heard before!

    My personal favorites are the less known albums: 'When You Fall Out Of Love With Me' , 'Poulaine' , 'Nichibotsu' & 'Perfectly Beneath Us' ..that's it for know.. but it can change in a few months. That's the thing about Celer Albums.. Every time there is another new favorite..

    I haven't heard 'Ceylon' or 'Levitation and Breaking Points' but I might have to download those next! Also I think some restrictions have been lifted on the Celer bandcamp/more songs are available to stream now before buying (yay!). My favorites are probably 'Sky Limits', 'Continents', 'Discourses of the Withered', 'Engaged Touches', 'Panoramic Dreams Bathed in Seldomness', 'Vestiges of an Inherent Melody', 'Scols', and 'Sunlir'.

    Some of my favorites are 'I Love You So Much I Can't Even Title This', 'Engaged Touches', 'Capri', 'Levitation and Breaking Points', 'Lightness and Irresponsibility', 'Discourses of the Withered', and 'Ceylon'. Haven't listened to 'Sky Limits' yet - will do soon! It most likely will become a new favorite by what everyone says.

    okay starting to think that Sky Limits might be the best Celer album now, it's tough to decide. What's everyone's favorite Celer release? or maybe like a top 3 or top 5?

    I'm pretty sad about his decision to not have the albums streaming. While it's generally true that I know exactly what I'm getting into with any given Celer release, I'm currently in a position where I'm not going to blindly (deafly?) buy an album, ESPECIALLY digitally. Oh wells, it be what it be.

    Why does this music resonate with me so much? 'The Insignificance of Destiny' is gorgeous.

    Ironically in Kyoto right at this very moment and listening to Sky Limits. Its amazing to feel in real life and with your own eyes what this album was inspired from and made in.

    Wish I could download it from Bandcamp, but only the physical album seems to be available for purchase.

    Sky Limits is absolutely fantastic.

    I think this might have been the longest time between Celer releases. Usually there's at least a half dozen a year. The wait definitely paid off, the new album is sooooo good. If you are on the fence about whether or not to listen/buy it, definitely do!!

    another good reason to buy vinyl at any means possible (i.e. beautiful new album sky limits, also the cover art is awesome)

    @Celer: wow that's terrible, only 9 buys and 3,500 free listens? no wonder you stopped streaming, Bandcamp blows. And hopefully those people who would regularly stream it and realize they cannot anymore decide to purchase it now!

    So in the end, it isn't going to help with sales, but it's not the musicians that should change, it's the industry. I'm grateful for everyone that listens to my music. Thank you.

    @neckermanncj Yes, here's why: First, Bandcamp doesn't pay royalties for streams - but Spotify and iTunes do, even if it is very small. In fact, you have to pay Bandcamp 5% of any sale (even physical sales). Second, Bandcamp doesn't allow limited streaming (clips). It's either 100% or nothing at all (an option which you have to pay them for monthly to control). It's fine for albums that have many small tracks, but if it's one track, anyone can stream the entire album. It's possible to upload a clip, but then if anyone buys it, the clip is included in the download - so that creates a problem. While I want to share my music with people, with the accessibility of music such as the Bandcamp app, anyone with a smartphone is able to stream without limit from anywhere, which cancels out the need to buy a download to hear an album. In seeing 3,540 full track streams vs. 9 digital album purchases in the same amount of time, I think it's easy to see there's a problem.
