Agreed, unfortunately. I've listened to it a few times, and there hasn't been anything that's made me want to return to it. Just feels very uninspired.

I checked out the new Cheer-Accident album yesterday and loved it, though. Not a band I've heard before, I'll definitely have to look into their discography.

Agreed. So 'normal' and not terribly musically focused. The last two tracks are really the only ones of note IMO.

As for Cheer-Accident...I'd recommend Sever Root, Tree Dies and Enduring The American Dream. (Most people will point you towards Fears Draws Misfortune, which should probably be heard, but hasn't really enamored me.)

Cheer-Accident Reco's
1. Fear Draws Misfortune - consistently recommended as a start point, along with Miriodor - Avanti! opened the door to modern avant for me.
2. Introducing Lemons - their classic
3. Sever Root, Tree Dies
4. Enduring The American Dream
5. No Ifs, Ands Or Dogs
Ian

My problem with Introducing Lemon is that it is too inconsistent. ETAD and SRTD are really the only two I listen to all the way through without skipping anything. (Fear... may also make that list, it's been forever since I've heard it and really don't remember much about it)

Garlic helps the memory Phil. That's why tzaziki is so popular with elephants.

I may be a bit late for my mid-year's update. The best listens so far (in order of release date, no ranking):

Djam Karet - Sonic Celluloid
Nooumena - Controlled Freaks
Cast - Power and Outcome
Jean-Pierre Louveton - Le Livre Blanc
Steve Hackett - The Night Siren
Big Big Train - Grimspound
Il Tempio delle Clessidre - Il-lūdĕre
Dean Watson - Sum of Parts
Big Big Train - The Second Brightest Star
Discipline - Captives of the Wine Dark Sea - Not the masterpiece I hoped for, nevertheless a charming album
