Do you like that Camel album, Sam? I think it's rather underrated, not really a too bad disc at all. It only suffers when comparing it to so many of their better albums! It's a fine pop/rock album with fancy playing from Latimar

It was Joγo, he played one of the songs on the radio a few months ago. I might follow you on that.

I had mixed feelings about it, some songs are great but others really bored me (mostly on side B). Andy Ward's drumming is what I love the most about Camel and seeing that he was replaced by a very dated sounding drumulator saddens me.

Los Canarios – Ciclos - such an ambitious - if a little dated - double album, so much going on in it, and it's a bit of a Mellotron beast too!

^Nice picks there mate!
Gotta love those gelatine plates (who names their band Moving Gelatine Plates?!??) and the delicious fusion of Six
- an album I only recently warmed up to. I entirely blame the vinyl copy I got.

Me today:
Kelly Lee Owens - s/t
Solaris - Martian Chronicles ll (I'm throwing in the towel on the Hungarian spelling...but damn what a fine album. Prog by the numbers but done extraordinary well. Love how the electronics and flute somehow compliments each other on the title track.)
Elder - Lore
Jonas Munk & Ulrich Schnauss - Passages (delicious floating electronic album that has Jonas' particular sound signature written all over it. More like a solo outing with backing synths if you ask me.)
Bobby Beausoleil - Lucifer Rising (fans of Solar Music Live and Embryo-like Floyd should dig this big time)
LCD Soundsystem - American Dream (one of the best albums I've heard this year and I've heard a few.)
Gaudi - Magnetic (ditto)
Ariel Pink - Dedicated to Bobby Jameson (double ditto)
Com Truise - Iteration (every synth outta Tom Cruise films from the 80s put to good use. Uplifting and somehow sends me back to my childhood years.)
Eloy - Planets (that bass...)

Due to certain circumstances I don't get to engage my stereo too much anymore. Not even my beloved headphones.

So what music I do get is often from your suggestions and the material you provide here. For which I am very grateful. Thank you, all!

I heard it once a few years ago and didn't feel like giving it another listen.

It sure is. Takes me to this sparkly gelatinous dreamworld every time I put it on. Sorta like if Cocteau Twins were instrumental and enamoured by the German electronic scene from the 70s.

I may just have to give that LdF album a second (seventh, eight, ninth?) try. People always seem to praise it on PA and I often go back thinking 'yeah damn I must've missed something because this thing is going to be absolutely gorgeous' and then I get the Italian CamelLOL
Did you hear yourself in those bubbles btw?

I really like "Caffeine Blues", that cool electronic Bossa Nova.

There's nothing wrong with Italian Camel to my ears.

Nah, not really. I forgot to tell him that.
