LOL Well said Steve. David has a unique way with words for sure.
Nice review of Honeyelk Sagi. I gave it 4 stars but felt I was rounding up. I enjoy it a lot but it does have a lot of non-moments if that makes any sense.

LOL Exactly. Non moments is a fine description. Of course I read your fine review, and like I said I think a lot of people would appreciate this album if they gave it a little more time, it is a grower, and just a tad short of 4 stars.

The EP version from 79' , as I mentioned, is actually a different mix so the outcome is a little different too. It's rougher and a little louder in parts, and I know you like that  Tongue. Have you ever had the chance to listen to this version?

Embarrassed Well I consider those flattering comments - just so you know!
 
Kind of intrigued by the Honeyelk album - especially those no-moments sound like fun.
 
I just ran across Jonas' (UMUR) rather short review of Clearlight's debut, and it never fails to make me chuggleLOL I couldn't be more in disagreement with him about the rating, but I do think it's a pretty cool description of the music he provides. Personally I feel this is a masterpiece - Jonas awarded it with 1 starLOL http://www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=155243

Nah...I wouldn´t write reviews like that today. The description of the music is still valid LOL, but I don´t use terms like "How this album got a score right now that says 4.28 is unbelievable to me" anymore. I´m actually in the process of slowly going through each of my reviews, either completely re-writing them or doing major or minor edits, so this one will get an overhaul too some time in the future Smile.

Lots of my reviews and bios or parts of them frequently appear on youtube blogspots and other sites. It's kind of weird reading them ouside of PA because it takes me a few seconds to realize that, hey ! wait a minute I wrote that! Not that I think my reviews are any good but it's rather flattering. They're just a fun pastime for me. Some bands have even put my reviews on their websites such as this most recent one. But I'm wondering why it says that PA is a Scottish site????

"The Trip by Djam Karet is a manifestation of ideas and concepts that tingle, capture and numb everything that has ever occurred within the inner mind and then some. This baby would have Timothy Leary running for cover. The sonic images conjured here make the Jupiter sequence from 2001: A Space Odyssey seem like some sort of kids amusement park cheap tunnel of horrors. Pure frightening brilliance."
5 out of 5 stars

I think a lot of guys and girls who write reviews here are much better than anything that any professional reviewers have written.

Vibrationbaby, I was just looking at that `The Trip' review earlier on, as I'm about to review that album myself, so thanks for some pointers lol! I plan on writing some pretty rambling stream-of-consciousness stuff about it too!

Funny you mention about your words, I've started noticing my reviews ending up on all manner of dodgy download sites in google searches too lol!

Why don't they write their own sh*t. When I review something it comes from my heart. The Trip is well... a trip. Look forward to reading your review.

Cheers, I'll be posting my review for it either today or tomorrow, and man do I pile it on thick for this one! I'm sure it will baffle more than a few people, and get a laugh from those who pick up many of the references in it! Knockout album but.

No it was made from  sheet music recovered from the Roswell crash. Penguins live in Antarctica. They don't come from space.

Excellent review of Lucio Battisti David Clap
As always your descriptions are spot on! That cover art and music go together like flannel shirts on a lumberjack.

How do you like my sig BTW? Wink

Thanks you guys. 

and hey Sagi, it was actually your sig that kept reminding me about this gemCool I've been meaning to review the album for ages, but it's become such a personal affair that I never know where to begin. It's often I feel this way with fave albums, and yesterday was no exception to this. I think I used 2 hours on the bloody reviewLOL Man.....that is not normal for me.

Gabe! I'm not sure how you feel about psych pop and Italian flair, but let me say this: I've never met anyone, who didn't like it. I've played it to my metal homies, prog affiliates and those like me who like just about everything - and it never fails to make people feel good. Maybe a little corny (so was my review), but it genuinely works.
Oh yeah, JuuhToob s'got the whole banana:

Funny you say that, Dave, wait until you read my self-indulgent and corny review for Djam Karet's `The Trip', I'll put it up later today/tomorrow, but I'm sure you'll appreciate it's sense of humour!

^ Like most albums, this one needs a few more spins to let the melodies sink in.
