Overlooked Albums

More than in recent memory, the lists section seems a bit tedious in terms of music. Many of the lists posted everyday are saturated with Sputnik's all-time favorites from any given genre. Honestly, I feel like I have seen Jane Doe and As The Roots Undo listed at least a thousand times in the past three weeks.

shiver / And shimmer and shake all around me / And all the world light was piecemeal / And peaceless / This
is the atomic pain of the worlds / The molecular tears / The final crystalline structure of misery"

Secrets Of The Beehive

From fireaboveicebelow's review: David Sylvian is what you would call the genius in the shadows... [Secrets Of
The Beehive] is the epitome of conscious depression, and basically started the sound of Red House Painters
and the like before 'slowcore' was even a genre.
Metaphorical Music

To define this album as 'superlative excellence in beat composition and production' would be an
