I enjoyed Tarcisio Moura's review of NICE BEAVER's latest. It makes me feel good to see so many positive reviews for this Dutch band. It blows me away that the DPRP hasn't reviewed it. Not that I even go on there anymore(I checked their AOTY lists recently) but I was just a little shocked that a Dutch band wasn't reviewed from a site out of The Netherlands.

I enjoyed it as well. But I am not surprised. In general, Dutch people have a tendency [1] to look beyond the borders of their small country and [2] to underestimate the value of what comes from the Netherlands. I made my fifth contribution to the AotY list this year and it is the first time that I included a Dutch album.

Thanks for that, I think here in Canada we often don't value our bands as much as we do international ones, for the most part.
Off the top of my head I don't think I have a Dutch band in any of my AotY lists but I'll check.
Oh and Fragile King's review of Ocean 5 was cool.Big smile

Hi there John

Just wanted to say that I've been enjoying your recent reviewing stint immensely. Great bunch of albums too - made me revisit that VAK album and I now I can't believe I left it off my AOTY listOuch

Canadians know their Zeuhl? Not sure about that, isn't Hugues Canadian(ducks and runs for cover).LOL
Thanks Bamsen! I have a problem apparently when it comes to Fender Rhodes driven Zeuhl. I even gave Caillou's debut the album of the year in 2013 although they are more like One Shot so Zeuhl flavoured I suppose.
I was just thinking the other day that David the Dane influences me more than no other these days. Nik Turner's new one, Hedersleben, Baron, Circle's new one and on ad on, so glad we have similar tastes man.Clap

I think Hugues is French Canadian which means that he isn't French nor Canadian - kinda like Lars Ulrich who isn't Danish anymore yet a far cry from an American tooLOL

I too have an affinity for Fender rhodes driven Zeuhl/fusion. There's just something about that sound! It also happens to be my favourite part of In den Gärten Pharaohs - y'know on the first track after the looooooong percussive feast and things suddenly open up like a flower with that Fender rhodes? Rrrrrraaauw!

Oh and I'm glad to be of service m'ludBig smile It's only fair when I consider how many titles I have bought after reading your reviews...so yeah Quid Pro Quo buddy.
