  • DoofDoof I guess it just shows some bands move with the times but I liked the direction of that album, I'll give it another go and try 'In Camera' after too - probably next week as I prioritise new releases on Friday/Saturday/Sunday.
    October 18 03:36 AM
  • DoofDoof 'Nadir' was good, can't believe he's from VDG Generator who were too trad prog for me - this has more in common with Roxy Music and some art rock and glam/punk. I liked it a lot anyway.
    October 17 01:00 PM
  • DoofDoof Any particular release?

    August 26 04:44 AM
  • IcelandRevel Hey, the next time you do a review competition, would you mind shoutboxing me? Sometimes I don't check the lists for a whole week, and by then, I may miss something. Thank you!

    August 17 01:26 PM
  • SandwichBubble I was already a pretty big fan of Hair Cutter when it was released, so I'm hoping my excitement is the same for the whole album.
    August 16 03:10 AM
  • SandwichBubble So there's a leak out! I'm diving in rn, coral be my guide.

    August 7 05:33 AM
  • TheLongShot Lol I was not a fan of the production on the debut and none of the songs really clicked save for 10538, but I could see it having grower potential (same with the rest of the proggier ELO records)
    August 6 04:33 AM
  • TheLongShot I?ve been binging ELO?s discog over the last day or so, color me very surprised that you have Discovery at a 1 because I?m not finding it to be bad at all honestly lol
    August 6 04:11 AM
  • SandwichBubble I was off-site on the 28th and I didn't even think to check the new reviews the day after. Apologies :( | I will check that album out though, if you say it's his best work.
    August 1 07:42 AM
  • Papa Universe Okay, then Boko Haram it is.
    July 31 05:16 AM
  • Papa Universe Nowadays that song would probably have been labelled an extremist provocation and ISIS would have said it was their plan all along.

    July 21 11:47 AM
  • SowingSeason I don't think the new Pram was bad at all. A little flimsy at times and some corny moments, but overall pretty enjoyable.
    July 20 01:20 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit btw put out a new EP: https://millicentwaffles.bandcamp.com/album/hybrid-symbiont
    July 20 09:23 AM
  • AnimalsAsSummit her stuffs decent but nothing that amazing for me, some of her releases bored me to tears though
    July 20 09:22 AM
  • DoofDoof Nah, the Bailey solo is too formless for me, my arty credentials come up distinctly lacking again. His style does work well on the DS album though, bit more going on.
    July 19 03:34 AM
  • DoofDoof which of his albums? will give him a go
    July 17 03:56 AM
  • DoofDoof I'd listened to half the album before, not exactly easy listening but I think I've got close to that point I just like the Sylvian style so much I just relax into his musical world now, has a familiarity
    July 12 07:57 AM
  • climactic im alive bro still stop in from time to time
    July 10 04:56 PM
  • DoofDoof Throbbing Gristle? I know they're industrial but who do they sound most like?
    July 8 03:54 PM
  • DoofDoof I think i've heard a few snippets from it but never listened to the whole album so that'll do nicely, thanks
    July 8 03:53 PM
  • DoofDoof I'll take a rec though ;D
    July 8 12:00 PM
  • DoofDoof Well the other account is retired so I need a new primary account - what's your point? I have told everyone I'd be starting a new account for over a month :/

    July 1 02:05 AM
  • TalonsOfFire The back half wasn't as memorable, Humility and the middle few songs were highlights for me. The mixing was a bit odd at times, like the clarity could've been better I thought.
    June 24 07:54 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Your review of The Now Now coming along well? I agree with your rating, it's a good record. A step up from Humanz and more focused.

  • theBoneyKing Oi nice rating bump on They Spent Their Wild Youthful Days
    May 7 11:56 AM
  • TheSpaceMan there really needs to be a genre for all music with a mellotron. gonna d/l anyways even though glam aint my thing. subtlety goes a looong way (as i jam ****in shoegaze on the reg)
    May 7 03:11 AM
  • TheSpaceMan t-rex? never heard... prog? up my alley? i'm downloading right now?
    May 7 03:05 AM
  • TheSpaceMan anthem and aoxo fckn rule too, and yea i feel ya. hes your 'street' connect (;
    May 7 02:56 AM
  • TheSpaceMan those are acceptable things to purchase over the dead lol. this connect sounds like the real deal, nothing better than a good record shop owner. if you ever see American Beauty on the low you should cop, trust me its so perf
    May 7 02:36 AM
  • TheSpaceMan Oh snap just saw your shout, man nice all dead albums should be on wax. I'm personally not too partial on the debut but I know a lot of people love it. Honestly their stuff from the debut through american beauty is all so good that I sorta grade them a bit harsh cause of standards. There's just something about their vibes man
    May 7 12:43 AM
  • Papa Universe oi, so is the user review competition gone for good?
    May 6 08:30 AM
  • SteakByrnes Oh s*** nice, you should've taken it off of him and made it your own
    May 3 04:46 PM
  • Azertherion Thank you for the Seiko Oomori recommendation btw, I really dig it. Even though I really feel ashamed for half of the songs on the album, the whole thing is extremely catchy. I should try listening to more music from Japan.
    May 1 06:26 PM
  • Toad its ok if u dont wanna join the club but romeo is one of the best tracks of all time
    April 30 11:13 PM
  • Toad though fair warning the first two tracks are really odd and discordant compared to the rest of the album. lovenote is a much better indicator of what you get than who goes there or so what, which turned me completely off the record on the first spin
    April 30 11:06 PM
  • Toad dude its bladee's ambient pop/cloud rap masterpiece
    April 30 11:02 PM

  • TheArtofTheGanja 2.8? laaaaaame
    April 23 11:02 PM
  • linguist2011 Agreed. Moontan is a brilliant effort, but the rest of the albums I've heard from the band (apart from maybe Eight Miles High) seem a little weak in comparison.

    April 17 12:43 PM
  • TheSpaceMan its their best studio album, and hugely historical to the era. its worth a visit just in that its a bucketlist album everyone should hear. if you go into with your current mindset im sure youll dismiss it but at least you can say youve heard THE dead studio album and give weight to your comment of disliking them

  • TalonsOfFire I jammed all the Goldfrapp albums this past week, they're a really interesting group. Btw do you remember an ambient Japanese EP someone reviewed with 5/5 rating a while back? The cover is of a flower or something, in kind of the same art style as Another Green World. I've been meaning to check it out but forgot the name.
