"Loved it, it's good that 16B did this as I'm sure we all realise that he could have easily sold this album at full price," Lee reckoned.
But he was unsure whether Omid's following in the footsteps of mega artists like Prince in giving the album away for free would signal any changes in the music industry.
"I don't think it will signal any massive change in the industry. At the moment it is still just a marketing tool really. It's only suitable for established artists who already have the exposure, success and equipment they need," he added.
Another reader who dug the album was Anthony Grae.
"I've been a fan of Omid for quite a long time so this was something I was looking forward to for a while. It was a good deed of him to just give it away," Grae thought.
Omid 16B has been on a whistle-stop world tour to promote the new album, taking in China, Canada and Eastern Europe. Stay tuned for a review of his China dates, coming soon.
