Heh I thought I was the only one who'd purchased Shadowlands. I simply adore the first disc but haven't really gotten my head around the second - felt a little too..erm docile/ambient perhaps? A revisit seems in place methinks.

Btw have you ever checked out Steve Moore's (one half of American electronic act Zombi) solo output? I think you'd dig his two most recent albums. Light Echoes sees him moving away from composed material and into a looser and ultimately more Berlin sounding palette with both nods to TD and Schulze (although he still retains his own 'voice' if you will), whereas his newest 'Pangaea Ultima' is a move towards a more original and modern expression.


I'm doing good thanks. I just spent a fortnight in Copenhagen, and while it was a lot of fun with friends and strangers, I still am feeling the aftermath of too much fun/drinking. So much so that I'm pondering just where the hell my summer vacation went. I start my studies in 10 days. Time to hit the water-wagon perhaps. 
Aside from that I'm just thrilled to lay around in my folks garden watching bumblebees flicker about like small fury drunk insects - listen to FSOL (like today) and just breathe ever so slowly. I love when time slows down to an ooze.




Dave, I finally got around to checking out Steve Moore.  Wooh!  Very impressed.  I like all 4 off the new album, this is something I will definitely get.  Thanks for the recomm my friend Clap.  This also means Zombi are next for me to look into (seriously how have I not heard them yetEmbarrassed).  I guess there is a lot of music out there so I have an excuse LOL.

I love cd 2 of Shadowlands though it is exceptionally reserved.  Where I work music is a no-no, however between Christmas and New Year when there was hardly anybody in I was playing this in the office (I was alone in the room, there'd usually be 4 of us).  A girl popped in from another department, heard the music, apologised for interrupting me and left!  I saw her later, she apologised again for disturbing my meditation LOL.  Classic.

On the subject of FSOL have you ever heard Environments 2?  That is an amazing album and light years ahead of their other releases.  I'd put it pretty close to Lifeforms, it's that good.  Right back to their old style and approach.  I think a lot of it may have been composed back then but just tweaked around and released a couple of years back.

Today so far a further listen to Radio Massacre International's Frozen North, my most recent purchase of theirs.  Safe to say I am enjoying this immensely.

Good to know, I'll give those a listen later Thumbs Up

5/5 in my book.
I'm going to listen to it again soon. Maybe then my rating will change. But I like The Bedlam in Goliath better.
Hmm...funny how taste works, Bedlam's my least favourite TMV album. LOL Still good though, of course. Thumbs Up

Great music. Some of the best Non-Magma Zeuhl and italo-prog albums.
Yup! And a little Spanish gem at the end there. Approve

Maybe I should start something similar with El Paraiso Records. 
We could end up as two Scandinavian music pushers - hell I already feel like oneLOL
LOL Yeah, I've seen you push a lot stuff from there; Causa Sui, Sktt, Psicomagia. Still haven't taken the plunge on any of them (although I did hear a CS album once, "Euoptide" or something like that I think it was called, and I seem to remember enjoying it, too), but it's been on my mind to do so for a while. Someday...

Speakin' of Rune, made a couple of RG polls I while back, the one with the cover art you can perhaps see where I got the inspiration? Wink

How did you find that Material album? I wouldn't immediately think that it was something to your liking, but I've been wrong before. 
It took me a little while to open up to it - mostly because I was expecting a hardcore fusion album with rap tendencies.....and there's a loooooong ways between that and the ethereal and ethnic fusion found on here. I entirely blame the 'Parental Advisory' sticker for that. I used to buy a lot of 90s hip hop and every record that ended up on my shelf had this sticker on it. 
Anyway, the second or third time I span it something magical happened, and I haven't looked back since.
It's good, borderline very good, IMO. Yeah, I like it. Nah, I'm still developing my taste, I think, it's not set in stone yet, and perhaps, or should I say, hopefully, it never will. I'll say this much though, thankfully there's no rap on the album. Wink LOL

Yeah, I got the same impression myself. Still found it pretty good though, and interesting, most importantly. Requires several listens those albums, methinks.

So they're moving west, slowly but surely closing in on you. Wink LOL

How did you find that Huntsville album, btw?

Yeah, there's a few box-sets with their first six studio albums, I think I've seen, but as I've already got L.A. Woman, I think I'll go for the remastered and expanded version of their other albums, unless I find a box-set for less than the total cost of those, then I could be tempted.

Spending all one's money on music, sounds familiar. LOL Sadly, I can't say I share your enthusiasm for miRthkon, can't get into them, however hard I try. Ouch
I hope so. elephant9 played here last month, so who knows... Smile I think many people would enjoy their music, if they would play here Big smile
