    April 20 03:31 PM

  • Winesburgohio between our combined fusillade we'll be unstoppable
    April 20 11:31 AM

  • JohnnyoftheWell Aw sad, was hyped to read your take (and also more confident in your ability to land that artwork on the feature bar than mine)! Will try and knock something out if I have time though, it's fun stuff

    November 16 06:28 PM
  • Divaman That would be great. Good to hear from you.
    November 16 02:50 PM
  • JohnnyoftheWell Hi hi you checked the new Hakushi Hasegawa?
    November 16 06:48 AM
  • Deviant. I don't know if the constant change in styles is a calculated move, more just what's she feeling when she makes a new album. I like that she doesn't compromise though
    November 14 10:37 PM
  • Deviant. As for Halo - it's good that she's getting the attention. Her music has always had a dense and impenetrable quality to it, so it's no big surprise that it's taken people awhile to come around. Someone like Agnes Obel does what Halo does but it's admittedly a lot more palatable, thus more instantly gratifying
    November 13 10:28 PM
  • Deviant. See, I always say The Altar as being a nice blend of her quirky faux-gothic undertones and more broad and generalised popstar wants. III juss feels hastily put together, like she had a couple of good tracks (Gimmie being one of them) and went "best get some more and make an album. Some of the decisions she's made with that album are interesting. Some of the beats that she chose to work with are more oddball just for the sake of being oddball
    November 13 10:26 PM
  • clavier if i'm gonna be honest i gave up listening 2/3 of the way through, it does mean that any opinion i have about that album should be taken with some grains of salt
    November 13 04:35 AM
  • clavier i wish i enjoyed it, it'd be nice to have another genuinely interesting unconventional bm album but it's not a good sign when i feel like i'm hearing s***tyflute on track 1
    November 13 04:28 AM
  • clavier actually it's not good, don't believe the anti-anti-hype
    November 13 04:24 AM
  • Divaman Hi Frip. Hope you're doing well. I was wondering if you have any interest in contributing a track for November's Song of the Day list? ( This month's theme is "gifts". We're looking for people to contribute a song that they like that they first learned about thanks to someone here on Sputnik.
    November 12 03:23 PM
  • Deviant. She deserves it. She's also smart enough that she's not all the way quirky like FKA, but mysterious and quirky enough to appeal to a lot of demographics. Which sounds like I think she's manufactured, which isn't the case. But she's carefully curating herself. Shame about her last album though
    November 11 10:06 AM
  • ArsMoriendi Okay! When you do, can you tell me if you put it on Bowie's page, the Soundtrack (movie) page, or some third page?
    November 9 07:56 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Why isn't the Labyrinth soundtrack on Sputnik? Or am I missing it somehow?
    November 8 09:45 PM
  • CaptainDooRight thanks boss will def check
    November 7 06:13 AM

    October 31 01:46 AM

  • CaptainDooRight dude rec me some inspiring music, something that would impress me but that is also extremely immersive. I wanna leave this world butt it has to be palatable two
    October 29 04:03 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Oh, thank god. Strange Angels has 0 good songs on it.
    October 27 07:21 PM
  • climactic sup friendo hows it hangin
    October 26 09:27 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Is the rest of post-Home of the Brave Laurie Anderson as boring as Strange Angels?
    October 25 08:32 PM
  • DoofDoof song seems to have found the missing ingredients to turn ken's 8 or 9 out of 10 into the full 11
    October 23 06:43 PM
  • DoofDoof On what is this feeling based? I hope so
    October 22 08:14 AM
  • CaptainFluf idk i feel like there's no point in using sputnik if all i do is rate albums on both sites. hopefully i post in the forums here or something though
    October 21 09:05 AM
  • CaptainFluf mayb a bit, but idk what to do other than rate and if that's all i do then what's the point of using this instead of rym? what i like about this is it being more about community/forums but that's scary
    October 21 06:55 AM
  • CaptainFluf hi i remembered my password
    October 20 01:56 AM
  • unclereich I love jobs where you can jam and do your work
    October 14 10:24 PM

    October 14 08:18 PM
  • unclereich Car i just bought had some issues so i flipped it for profit but now i dont have any wheels and am too indecisive to buy a car. Very weird time in my life rn. Still jammin? I never listen to new music anymore

  • unclereich how's it been man
    October 14 06:33 AM
  • theBoneyKing Yo someones gotta review All Mirrors boi
    October 13 10:50 PM
  • Sowing The only time we enforce reviews is with a label promo, otherwise it's all on a volunteer basis!
    October 10 12:20 AM
  • Sowing Also, if you think you might miss the chance entirely, you can offer it in Olympus. Otherwise just do it wherever.
    October 10 12:17 AM
  • Sowing Take your time. I don't think I have enough background with Olsen to write about her confidently, or I'd say yes.
    October 10 12:13 AM
  • AnimalsAsSummit ooooh boy can't wait!
    October 7 11:22 AM
  • Sowing lol I'd pos. also: Lark, All Mirrors, New Love Cassette, Spring, and Chance are all 5/5 songs that deserve SOTY playlist consideration
    October 4 07:57 PM
  • Sowing excited for that glowing angel olsen review. album's a beaut.
    October 4 07:15 PM
  • JohnnyoftheWell Oh damn, imma get on that. Wonder if they play the Saijiki songs in full, or just stick to the core parts
    October 3 09:55 PM

  • Dedes Big dick Kirby takes on many forms and lives through me as I am one of his many vessels.
    September 19 10:10 PM
  • Winesburgohio if it's any consolation my chart has brought shame upon my house and ancestors
    September 19 05:01 AM
  • Dedes You and I both know nothing will come of it What are you gonna do? IP ban me?Big dick Kirby lives
    September 18 01:55 AM
  • Dedes It'll only come back stronger
    September 18 01:11 AM
  • Dedes What you know of Kirby is only a portrayal of societal ignorance, for underneath their lurks a terror you do not want to know...
    September 16 11:23 PM
  • Dedes Your darkest nightmare realized
    September 15 01:50 PM
  • Xenophanes From what I?ve heard so far it feels like a retrospective album?I hear a bit of several Boris eras. But I?ve only skimmed it. They?re one of my faves so I?m excited l.
    September 12 11:35 AM
  • Xenophanes I?ve only skimmed the new Boris but I?m loving what I?m hearing?also your rating has me pleased.
    September 12 02:29 AM
  • NorthernSkylark Also, in the recs department, you should give Peter Silberman's Impermanence a go. It's a subtle stunner of an album.
    September 8 08:27 AM
  • NorthernSkylark late reply, sorry for that. just moved to a new apartment... I really liked the Ichiko Aoba album. I'll definetely give it another spin! As for the country album, it sounded just fine to me. As for the prefab album, it's an album I really have to be in the right mood to play. I will rate it when I'm ready. Haven't heard the last rec yet.

    September 4 01:31 AM
  • SitarHero What's up with the deleting comments Fripp?
    August 29 08:57 PM
  • NorthernSkylark In a bit of a country mood atm, but anything for rainy nights spend in solitude would be appreciated!
    August 17 08:26 PM
  • deathschool The evidence that proves to the contrary has beend.
    August 17 08:17 PM
  • TalonsOfFire That's probably my least favorite song too. I can't believe 3 years of waiting, and after some of their best music, they make this. It sounds like a cover band doing a Kayo Dot parody album in places.
    August 17 01:43 PM
  • deathschool It is much more immoral to play god!!
    August 17 04:59 AM
  • kris. frip............
    August 16 12:51 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Yeah I'm hoping it grows on me but I'm doubting it
    August 13 10:44 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Hey Fripp, you listen to the new Kayo Dot album Blasphemy yet? If so, what did you think? You weren't a fan of PHoBoS, correct?
    August 13 06:52 PM
  • NorthernSkylark I need recs fripp, do you have something for me?
    August 13 08:26 AM
  • NorthernSkylark lizzy mercier descloux - mambo nassauit's even better than press color, which i see you liked quite a lot.

  • Aberf haven't replied to your latest shoutbox, but I've been unironically studying one of the divine books (Qur'an) and found it to be truly divine in itself. I'm truly convinced that this might be in fact the 'word of God', just from looking at it through a literary perspective. Yes, the divine book through literary perspective. It's really fascinating, to the point that I've been putting off music for myself. And I'm actually planning to make a discussion about it here in the future.

    April 22 06:13 PM
  • JohnnyoftheWell Sweet thanks - will check!
    April 22 04:52 AM
  • Jethro42 Hi Fripp, have you heard The Claypool Lennon Delirium? I really think you would dig it. Pronounced psychedelic surrounded by great melodies. Only 2 LPs and one EP so far, but also some live stuff on Youtube.
    April 20 01:22 AM

    March 31 12:09 AM
  • neekafat Nice Us rating, it really grows on you over time tho
    March 28 08:26 AM
  • granitenotebook cool, have fun man
    March 27 12:02 AM
  • DoofDoof It is a bit suspicious it came out right after Hats and sounds little like the previous album. Willing to give the benefit of the doubt, it works and has a different flavour to Hats. Less a specifically late night imagery album.
    March 26 08:33 AM
  • granitenotebook also sorry to hear about scott walker. idk how you react to celeb deaths but hope you're doing ok.
    March 26 03:40 AM
  • granitenotebook listening to something, anything? and it?s really good. thanks for rec
    March 25 04:01 PM
  • DoofDoof Yes, the CD arrived earlier than expected from the good ol? U S of A
    March 25 09:46 AM
  • DoofDoof The rating is immaterial no?
    March 25 09:45 AM
  • SandwichBubble I liked Inner Monologue off Panda's newest, so maybe one song on the new album for him. Like Ringo
    March 23 02:01 AM
  • SandwichBubble I feel like they're on the upswing, aside from Panda, but I'm not the biggest fan of his solo stuff anyway. Avey killed it on this one though.
    March 22 02:36 PM
  • SandwichBubble Rules as expected, I knew I'd see you with the correct rating.

  • DoofDoof Didn't like the It's Immaterial debut album too much but I tried two songs off the one you rec'd and they were so good I have ordered a cheap second hand copy I hopefully the rest is as good. Seems like the sort of thing I like to pick up on CD ;D

    February 20 10:10 AM
  • ArsMoriendi Nice Love's Secret Domain rating. Great album, especially that closer.
    February 20 03:52 AM
  • ArsMoriendi Thanks for the White Noise rec by the way, it's as me as music can get lol.
    February 19 04:09 AM
  • ArsMoriendi Olympus? Is that a discord group? I'm only in Vex honestly.
    February 18 12:29 AM
  • ArsMoriendi I'm kinda surprised. I've chatted with him on discord once (like with mics) and he was super chill and stuff. Is he like bipolar? Also, if it really is Aiwaz, that's extra embarrassing cuz he's supposedly in his 40s.
    February 18 12:21 AM
  • ArsMoriendi Sorry, I tend to guess the more hostile ones are him because he's had a history of that. Who is it then, Ghost? idk
    February 18 12:13 AM
  • SandwichBubble Thing is, some of those that only had one review were a lot older (2005-9), so he'd probably want thosed if he's trying to cover his internet footprint :(
    February 16 05:15 PM
  • SandwichBubble Even though I think that sounds like a fantastic idea, I don't know if he'd appreciate the thought the same way we do. | I really hope he doesn't everything, cause there are albums with like 100s of comments that'll just be wiped completely.
    February 16 04:48 PM
  • sixdegrees
    February 14 02:59 AM
  • DoofDoof Yeah, I'm not sure I'm invested enough in one dude with a record contract's opinions on such to have no musical worth supporting it - sure he is an interesting chap and some of Xiu Xiu's early songs were intriguing. New 'sound art' thing they just released sounded like sub-Prurient stuff given to a drama class to 'interpret' and was a bit obnoxious for me - maybe that is the point but I am mainly in the listening business for some entertainment.
    February 10 06:32 PM
  • DoofDoof The point of Xiu Xiu if not musical is?
    February 10 09:49 AM
  • TalonsOfFire I guess because there's no bonus tracks that's true for the Megahertz remaster. My review is essentially information about it right now, so I might just add it to the bio section for Paddy. If you have a review for it ready you might as well post it. I might write something for Crimson Red, I've been digging that one a lot lately.

  • TalonsOfFire Does the new one have a release date? And I thought you or I or someone would add a new entry for the remastered version, since it's a new release under the Prefab Sprout name and not the solo one from 2003. That's what I meant when I said I could review either one.

  • TalonsOfFire Did you say you were gonna review I Trawl the Megahertz? If so, the remaster coming out today or the original? I'm writing something for it at the moment, but so far it could apply to either one. I can take whichever version you're not doing if you're reviewing it.

  • DoofDoof It?s there...but I have seen people say a little David Bowie ?Low? is in the mix and you can definitely hear that. I think it is somewhere between HD and FF in terms of their sound and is solid (if a teeny bit by the numbers)
