I like Leaving Your Body Map, though I do not to regard Maudlin of the Well as highly as Kayo Dot. I used to love Red Queen to Gryphon Three, and I like all Gryphon albums (especially Midnight Mushrumps), but it comes across to me as too formulaic -- the tracks following the same structure over-much.  I prefer to listen to the music of that album mixed up with other Gryphon's tracks to bring more variety (I'm not one who values consistency as much as others) -  especially with my fave Gryphon adaptation:



Anyway, Red Queen, especially for "Lament" and "Opening Move".  I love each track independently, though.

Wierd match, but Red Queen is a superb album and better than anything MOTW ever did.

I think I'm reading you right.  A little more input and a little less output, I guess.  I do suffer from verbal diarrhoea.  Hope you liked the vid if you didn't know it, though. I was a little sad to see no one responding to your topic....

Red Queen is a solid album but never hit me as hard as I expected. Leaving Your Body Map is perhaps Toby Driver's most definitive output, IMO. Not a Toby fanboy like many here, but MotW gets the nod.

You are quite a fine person, and I am very fond of you. But you are only quite a little fellow, in a wide world, after all.
