Are Compass tires any more prone to sidewall punctures? They just look like soft bouncy balloons...

I've never ridden aluminum before but the big difference I feel compared to my older (modern) steel bike is that the ride feels more muted on a titanium - if that makes any sense at all.

They have 2 versions - regular and extralight. The regular is suppose to have a tougher sidewall but it's not as light (obviously) and less supple than the extralight. I've only ridden on extralights and i've never had any problems with punctures - and i've gone down on some really gnarly roads aka dry, rocky, river beds.

Difference between Ti an Al is like the difference between a German Sedan and your grandfather's old Ford in ride quality.
