Also most classical music (From Handel to Vollenweider) and opera tend to
have incidental breaks on the Album. Afaik my Enigma album is the only
album I own where sub-track "indexes" are used to break the longer sections
- but as the only CD player I have ever seen with support for this feature
is my ancient Sony Discman, track breaks are forced upon us - so the
smaller, the better :)

2p (0.02GBP) to add to the pot :)
