Linn: Studio Master Downloads: Limbo
For many (well, a few) 'Alaska' and 'Limbo' are Miracle Mile's finest moments.
Both albums have been lovingly remastered by Marcus and Peter Beckmann (of Technologyworks) for Linn's 'Studio Master Downloads Series'.
The downloads are pricey but Marcus and Pete say that they sound 'fantastic'.
'Limbo' is now available alongside 'Alaska'.

Limbo was Miracle Mile’s 7th album. It received massive critical acclaim upon its release; indeed The Sunday Times made it their ‘CD of the Week’ and nominated the lead track ‘Lights of Home’ as a ‘Sunday Times ‘Song of the Year’ 2007 noting: "Trevor Jones finds the poetry in real life; Marcus Cliffe anchors it in the sweetest pop. Gorgeous as ever. You may cry "
“Songs that rival those of Prefab Sprout, the Blue Nile or just about any other grown up pop group you could imagine” Hi-Fi News *****
"Its evocative lyrics and melodies take the listener on their own journeys into their past and future. Miracle Mile have released yet another superb record; how much longer will they be in Limbo?"
Americana UK 9/10
"Classic pop songwriting, gorgeously realised" The Sunday Times ****
“An album overflowing with sensitively wrought melodies and heart-fluttering lyricism. If it's possible, this is even more passionate than usual, deliciously understated and tear jerking." Hi-Fi News *****
