I may just go ahead and get both. You know about Supersilent then right? Lofthus also plays with them plus the keys man from Elephant9 as well. Freejazz electronic krautrocky and atmospheric. Pretty unique stuff.

Yes.  Grindstone is IMO their craziest album, certainly the most eclectic.  Less "extreme" than Blackjazz, but more extreme in a way

I need to get me some Shining. It's with Thorsten Lofthus on drums right? The guy from Elephant9.

I actually got that Popol Vuh album very recently, it's quite pretty but also fairly spooky for them.  Also has some sweet funky grooves.  Like it a lot, but Grindstone is still Grindstone.

Right on, John. The Os Mundi album is a very close second choice for me, my kind of music, tooThumbs Up

U Riguru  is an excellent album and I've been back in a very Zeuhl mood of late.  I was a tad surprised to see it voteless.

Thanks for the welcome back, John, I appreciate it.  When I saw that Think album, I immediately thought  "Sounds familiar, I wonder if I have it?" and then I quickly realized that I was thinking of Zyma's Thoughts.

Of the ones I haven't heard (the Radio Massacre International, the Think album, the Os Mundi and the Popul Vuh), the Popul Vuh would probably be next on my list.

My other top three was THINK's album that Sagi mentioned. And as he says this german band had 3 Germans, 2 Hungarians and a Czech. There is a Floyd flavour to this Krautrock band and the song "Drops" is incredible. 4.5 stars from me.

Welcome back Greg !
Thankyou for voting for that one, i gave it 5 stars. These guys are from the French island of Corsica and they sing in the Corsica language as well. An excellent Zeuhl record.

Doug, Michael and Sagi have made it clear that Wallenstein's Blitzrieg is one to get. Dollase and Groskopf the keyboardist and drummer both were part of The Cosmic Jokers.

BLITZKRIEG!! Hell yeah I like that sh*t!! sorry I couldn't help it.
Love pretty much everything about it wild guitars and excellent energies, recommended for harder edged symph prog lovers.

I really like that Think album as well. They couldn't come up with a better name for the band and for their only album. The band plays a pretty varied prog. Jazz, blues, rock and some classical too. Remind me of some Floyd sometimes and maybe Out Of Focus as well, definitely great stuff. I remember the musicians are from Germay, Hungary and from another country too, I can't recall.

BLITZ!!

It gets my vote...unless that's NOT the album I'm thinking of?!
"Lunetic" is a song off the Wallenstein album Blitzkrieg. It's definitely got my vote, a really great album, pretty well the group's best. The guitar/keys work is brilliant, reallyTongue

Doug!

I took out my ratty old vinyl copy, and it's got a totally different cover - a purple and black space scene, with the band/titles as purple letters as `Wallenstein - Lunatics'. Other than that, seems to be the identical album!

Either way - I stand by my vote!

Man, I don't think I've ever dressed so rapidly in my lifeLOL Fun times....
You win.  I don't know that feel. LOL


Hell, I'm not even sure that was what Scott was referring to, but I sincerely hope so nowLOL
Only as a metaphor for stopping by a thread in PA in which I know nothing from the poll, but I stumbled in anyways and made myself a virtual sandwich.  I suppose making my post could be an equivalent for getting into bed with a strange man in a strange house, but I certainly didn't want to go there.  LOL

LOL Man, I think a little wee actually came out there....

I agree David and that was my pick as well. Nothing like being drowned in mellotron while the guitar is giving you the final send off. Wink


I love the mellotron as well. S'got that effervescent feel to it that I've always liked. Close to the Moodies actually, and then not really...
