Is it feasible to get in touch with Dan Britton to ask if there is any update? Has anyone been in contact with him?

Ah, I guess I found the appreciation thread! 

This is pretty much been on my player consistently since 2008 when I first heard it. Also it is the basis of my main IHeartRadio station that consistently produces the most interesting mix. 

I guess we can only be patient for a second album.

I emailed Dan last year and he said it was coming early this year. And it has shown up in the bottom of the wayside music weekly e-mails:

"-Coming Soon (or not soon, but eventually, so please be patient!)-
(For updates of new items in stock, watch these mailings or check the NEW ARRIVALS section!) :
...
BIRDS AND BUILDINGS-Multipurpose Trap (second album! finally)!
..."

I'm liking the song by Deluge Grander, "The Form of the Good."  It's melodic
in a soulful way, which I think pretty much all good music is.

Maybe I didn't listen enough to Bantam to Behemoth yet, I find it very good but somehow it falls short of what one feels it could have been.
Great musicianship for sure, Birds Flying Into Buildings is great, but for the most part it's like it's too busy, I never get to feel beautiful musical ideas developing into a coherent theme and structure, the music doesn't stick in my brain.
And I don't fancy the vocals either, sure they play a minor role but for that they should better have kept it instrumental.
 
And it feels to me (I could well be wrong) as a bit too much studio overcooked, it does not sound like a live recording, ok no album is a live recording nowadays but I hope you get what I mean.
 
Having said that, hats off because there's some great musicianship in there too.

Ditto. I'm sure he's a great composer and sh*t... but honestly, his music lacks something.
