Today I went an easy route and listened to the Angel Dust by Faith No More. But yesterday, or actually today early morning before bedtime, it was Wind and Wuthering by Genesis. Ah, I love to reveal/promote what I am listening to at the moment :D

Sam, I've listened once all the way through to `Tyger', and I think it's generally very good! The female vocals over the top are striking and evocative, but the arrangements and the playing are instantly recognizable as Tangerine Dream. Honestly, I am shocked at how focused and inspired the band sound on this! Quite happy with this one!

`Open Your Eyes' is not nearly as bad as some people make it out to be. OK, so it's frequently overproduced, it's really just glorified AOR with proggy playing behind the commercial arrangements, and Jon Anderson often sounds quite shrill, but there's traces of quality stuff throughout. Chris's bass still sounds great, and tracks like `Fortune Seller' and `Universal Garden' are really rather good. I'd give it about a three out of five!

TD with female vocals? That seems nice! I'll listen to it tomorrow Smile

I never understood why AOR is a synonym for bad music for many people here. Its not a great album  but it's not a bad album either.

Last two days:
Yes - Open Your Eyes
Klaus Schulze - Moondawn
Roxy Music - Siren (I'm enjoying very much discovering their music Big smile)
Bill Bruford's Earthworks - Earthworks
Atomic Rooster - In Hearing Of (Awesome album! Cool Only one more to go )
Mostly Autumn - The Ghost Moon Orchestra (Very nice album Nick, although it's too soon for me to choose favourites yet Tongue)
Return to Forever - Romantic Warrior

LOL I surprised myself with how much I like this album, too.  It's not really epic or anything, it's just very enjoyable and it makes me hopeful for what could be in store for the future.

That'll be a great discovery I hope (I'm sure Smile)

Too melodic to be hypnotic, IMO. Anyway good luck Wink. The movie was not too bad.

Antarctica is just thw main theme of a movie soundtrack repeated several times with few variations so to fill an entire album. So one excellent and one bad...

Ha, I just noticed your review of `Antartica' now, Luca!
OK, I'll approach with an open mind...I'll either find it very atmosperic and hypnotic, or tedious and repetitive. I will report back soon!
