^Nice breakdown Ian, although I don't entirely agree with everything you said. For some inexplicable reason I've always loved the drum machine on Journey. Name any other album where it features, and I'll happily scorn it with the fury of a thousand mothers. On Journey though it works wonders for me and gives to the proceedings a dangerous yet kitschy feel.

Oh and talking of collaborative efforts then what about the stuff he did with Klaus Schulze, Michael Shrieve and Vincent Crane in 79 - back when Schulze didn't want to be Schulze and released this baby called Time Actor under the pseudonym of Richard Wahnfried
I just got Time Actor in the mail yesterday!  I've heard the first half and it's weirdly cool.

I also just got Strangelands yesterday too, though I'll be listening to that later today.

While I'm here, I'd also like to voice my "yay" for Arthur Brown's early 80s synth albums "Speak No Tech" and "Requiem", which are now available together as a 2 disc set.  Once again Arthur was on the cutting edge of new technology and seems to have had fun experimenting on these, while creating some groovy tunes as well.

I've had the first two Wahnfried albums for a while now - just never gotten around to giving them reviews. They sure need some love on PA. Time Actor is currently below 3Cry Not that I pay that much attention to the ratings, but they do reflect what most people think of the given album - especially when so few have rated it.

That 2 disc set sounds delicious. I'll be off to plan my next balloon heist then...

I like his stuff with Klaus Schulze which is free form and crazy, but not "rock" music per se. I think it is in "Dig It" or "Dune", but have to look at it. It's actually very good, but not anything like his previous incarnation, and in many ways it was a pre-cursor to the much later thing Klaus did with Lisa.
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now try finding your own mirror/art!
