Yes - Astral Traveller
Riverside - Love, Fear and the Time Machine
The Doors - Strange Days (I've been listening to their albums regularly for the last six years and I still can't pick a favourite. They are all great and very different.)
Gentle Giant - Octopus
Michael Garrison - Prisms (Really good album. It has a good balance between accessible melodies and dark atmospheres)
Camel - s/t (Finally not on Youtube Tongue)
Peter Baumann - Trans Harmonic Nights (It's not a bad album Michael, but it's not really good either. It's a messy album: it seems to go in very different ways but doesn't go anywhere. The vocoder vocals are only on three tracks and I didn't find it annoying since it's mostly used on background.)

It's what you hated about the previous album, multiplied by 10. I actually liked the previous album and I could hardly finish this one.

I remember seeing a vinyl copy of Bundles two years ago, but I didn't know it back then.

Happy listening, all together. ;)
Systematic Chaos was the last one I heard and I'll start again the discography after I finish the ones I have. It's a lot of music to listen to.

^  Replacing the sleeves really is a lot of work because it's so boring and repetitious that I do it a little at a time. I'm about halfway through but that still leaves over a thousand to go.

^ I know a few but each one has many records that others don't. This one has a lot of 70's electronic, which is not common here. There's also a store where I order new LP's and it's generally cheaper than anywhere else.
That seems like a lot of work.

^  That was great finding a local seller. I've ordered quite a bit from a couple of US sellers and the shipping is so reasonable that spend a few extra bucks for priority 3 day shipping.
I've have several orders from Bandcamp and Discogs that are taking two to three weeks to arrive (a few even longer).
I started using plastic covers back in the seventies because my local record store started selling them. I'm in the middle of a long project of replacing the old sleeves with new ones. They've gotten pretty dirty and dingy after forty years.

^ I mentioned two pages ago I found a Portuguese seller on Discogs with many great records. I bought 13 LP's this week and received the huge package yesterday Tongue I'll post it on the vinyl thread later.
I only started buying outer sleeves one year ago, mostly because the local store started selling them. I also put the sleeves right after I open them.

^  What opportunity was that?
The jacket condition is similar to some of my earlier albums that were not put into plastic sleeves for several years. I didn't even know about plastic outer sleeves when I first started buying albums.
I've been buying quite a bit of new vinyl lately (about 125 with about 25 more on order) and they go into a plastic cover as soon as I open them and verify the vinyl color.

^ That's great! About the condition, you also have to consider that it travelled half the world to get to you Tongue I was thinking about buying it this month on Discogs but a much more interesting opportunity appeared Wink

^  Yes, I received it a couple of weeks ago. The cover has shelf wear but the corners are sharp.
The vinyl is clean with no skips or hairlines so that's the important thing. It was very difficult to find on vinyl so 
I'm satisfied with the condition.

^ It was the second time I listened to the albums, so I can't pick a favourite Tongue The first one is much heavier, pure Fusion madness Cool The second one has a laid back vibe most of the time, and there's a lot of lovely Solina in it Approve Apples and oranges Tongue

Did you receive your copy already?

^  Hi Sam, those are my two favorite Soft Machine albums because of the guitarists Allan Holdsworth and John Etheridge. I'm curious to know which one you liked best.
I tried for some time to find a copy of Visitor 2035 and ended up ordering a used vinyl copy through Discogs.
