I figure someone has got to do it, so I have taken it upon myself to review every one of Senmuth's 78 (and counting) albums. For those who don't know about the man's work, Senmuth is a one man band whose work crosses ethic, industrial, and metal boundaries. The guy makes about an album a month, for the past six years.

I dare you to take the Senmuth challenge with me! All of his albums are free for download, in a few different places..

Half the challenge is figuring out the download sites. LOL

He'll have released six more albums before you've finished. It's a logical impossibility.

Well... 6 more reviews in an overall scope of 80+ doesn't seem that much of a daunting addition!
 
Yeah... thanks for your support guyz! LOL

It is possible to catch up with him, unless Conor is Xenophanes, but I don't believe that you will maintain the will, that's a lot of frickin albums.

You might do it. I've thought  about it. I might listen to some of his mid-period just so I can get some "First Review of This Album"'s before you. Tongue

That being said, I've listened to a couple and while I like them, nothing about them made me want to listen to 80 more. So I'll watch your reviews with interest to get an idea of which ones are worth listening to from now on. XD

Well... it's listenable enough, and I'm definately starting to get a bit tired of the same INDUSTRIAL METULZ with ethnic sounds even after reviewing 3, but part of the appeal is to hear the gradual change of sound.
 
I listened and reviewed two today. Each school day, I plan to listen to a new one.

You're right Jon, I've put these reviews off for too long.

Life's too short and there is too much other music around to even try.

According to the commonly accepted Egyptian chronology, that was about the time when the guy he named himself after lived.
 
I vote for Never. Maybe I take some time to listen to his music later, but then there might be a few more handsful of albums to choose from. Confused

What happens if he doesn't release any albums? Does his head explode?

When you are done with Senmuth you can tackle Sebastien Gramond who has 62 albums.  http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=5663

All released for free? Purchasing 62 albums would probably be the equivalent of a small car in price

Most of them are here on Jamendo.  Not sure if all are here or not.  http://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/Sebastien_GRAMOND_(2)
