Oh and btw Sagi, if you're out there buddy - would you be so kind as to start a new one of these? We're over 500 pages now and I think it should be you, ie the original poster, that gets to set sail on the new thread

This I have not got around to hearing yet.  Shame on me.  Does it come recommended?


Mjello Roj Nice to see you again!
I actually prefer it to the 'debut' ie Lost Themes pt 1. It feels more varied and flows together like this sonic river tapestry. Great for either training or chilling on a lawn (I've used it for both).
Oh and as a properly enlightened prog electronic head as yourself, I'd get my hands on Sinoia Caves' incredible soundtrack to the Canadian sci-fi thriller Beyond The Black Rainbow
One of the best Berlin school albums in recent times...and it manages to do this without brownnosing TD - at least not as much as one would expect from the genre

First time hearing it, Nick? I honestly think it's the best solo album he ever released. Superb beginning to end, very modern sounding yet intelligent and subtle at the same time, and he's far from being some tired, uninspired old man with nothing to say on it.

Heh, now I'll have to go and dig the CD out!

Coming home to my pile of music is just the best after work.

Tonight's recharge.

Lacuna Coil-- Delirium ( all kinds of crazy. It's growing on me. Bit of a bright recording but clean all together. )
Python Blue-- A Change of clothes ( great way to mellow out. )
Peter Gabriel-- Up ( holy crap. This is really quite good!)
Disturbed-- Indestructible ( feeling that itch to feel strong is bottled in this album. I love it. )
Threshold-- dead Reckoning ( special album. Mac's last. )
Oceans of slumber-- Blue ( EP) - absolutely amazing covers of on the turning away by pink Floyd and a 13min cover of Led Zep's Kashmir. )
Raving and drooling I leaned on his neck with a screeeeeeeamm! ;)

Shub Niggurath - Les Morts Vont Vite. This is really dark, ominous, and unsettling music! Again, it is more on the RIO side of zeuhl for me, but those female opera-like vocals make it zeuhly. Don't listen in the dark! Really, sometimes it seemed to creep on me.
Tangerine Dream - Electronic Meditation. I've been enjoying early kraut works recently (Organisation, Kluster etc.), so I thought I'd give this one a listen once more. It is probably as experimental as TD ever got. I like how that experimentation does not overshade the... emotion? Yeah, I think it does have a lot of emotion, this album.
Tony Conrad & Faust - Outside the Dream Syndicate. This was recommended to me by my dad and because I had remembered it had high ratings on here, I had to listen to it. It is very unaccessible, I think. But I see the point. This constant rhythm passes the borded of being boring and becomes interesting, making you question the subjective meaning of time. Pretty nice!
Eider Stellaire - Eider Stellaire I. This is how I like my zeuhl - it really highlights all of the genre's elements that I like - electric piano, rapid jazz-rock improvisations, overdriven basslines. Really well composed and well performed music. Love it!
Kraftwerk - Ralf und Florian. I feel like Kraftwerk is often dismissed around these parts due to their commercial approach, that they picked later in the seventies. However, their first three (even four) albums are just pure krautrock. And this one is the best of them (or is it their debut?). Very good music!

Also parts of Affenstunde by Popol Vuh to correct some of the mistakes and improve my new review on this album.

Cheers, Sam, I've made a note to keep an eye on that Electric Orange one. How does it sound compared to the previous album `Volume 10'?

Yep, that Mo-Du one is really quite Berlin School, if in shorter bursts. I feel it's well worth buying!

Today's choices, an accidently all-modern day:

Porcupine Tree – The Sky Moves Sideways (original version)
FEM Prog Band – Sulla Bolla di Sapone
Hard to tell at first listen but I think it's similar to "Volume 10" in some ways but different enough to be an interesting follow-up. I know it's a really vague description Embarrassed

I'll have to give it another listen, the Berlin School influences didn't seem very evident to suggest it (not that there's anything wrong about that).

Contrarily to "Up the Downstair", I never heard the original version of TSMS, although I know it has many differences as well. I have the 2CD reissue, it was the first modern Prog album I bought and it came with "Close to the Edge" if I'm not mistaken. Hmmm, that's probably why I have equal appreciation for classic and modern Prog Tongue

They seriously need to put out another album, I still can't stop listening to that one Embarrassed

Is that the latest Electric Orange album, Sam? I was considering buying it, pretty sure it's only on vinyl at this point?

How did you go with thet Mo-Du disc? I'm definitely going to jump on one of the CD's of that one.
Yes, it is and it's really good. They have it on CD on Bandcamp:
https://electricorange.bandcamp.com/album/misophonia

It's great, very relaxing although not really ambient.


Triumvirat - Mediterranean Tales
Nektar - A Tab in the Ocean
