  • 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 :/

  • Rowan5215 might sneak in on it if you're sure
    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
  • Toad also also have u not spun eversince?
    April 30 10:52 PM

  • TheArtofTheGanja well we aren't those high school kids anymore, so i get that. i just personally have done so much growing up in that period i find BPBF hard to listen to now
    April 25 06:01 PM
  • TheArtofTheGanja i'm guessing you didn't like the lyrics? understandable if that's the case, i live life on the edge
    April 25 12:29 AM
  • TheArtofTheGanja it's only reactionary bucko
    April 24 06:32 PM
  • MadKungFu Contact High With The Godz was such a wild ****ing ride. Gonna try to throw out a review in the next few days
    April 24 05:07 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 23 06:35 PM
  • TheArtofTheGanja the world needs a review of ganja gaiden
    April 21 11:22 PM
  • TheArtofTheGanja brother i entreat you
    April 21 11:22 PM
  • linguist2011 Nice to see someone else on here liking Golden Earring. I consider them very underrated considering the material they put out, especially during the 70s.
    April 20 02:40 PM
  • theBoneyKing Fripp likes Father John Misty again?? Im gonna wait for the official release, kinda hilarious that it leaked within hours of announcement though. Apple f*cked up.

  • SteakByrnes you, a BIGGER dweeb, mad that 02 besto and you know it ;]
    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

    April 5 12:38 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Right thanks, and yea I'm gonna jam their essentials after listening to some YMO cause I liked Pacific so much. Susumu too, since that was the main influence on Plastic House by Kayo Dot.

    April 4 11:42 PM
  • 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.
    April 4 11:13 PM

    March 23 10:17 AM
  • Rowan5215 not huge on the track listing that got made for the 2000s Amile. it makes sense live to end with Good Vibrations but the studio album was obviously meant to finish with Surf's Up, so it bugs me that they modeled Sessions on the solo version
    March 23 02:34 AM
  • Rowan5215 lmao dennis. yeah maybe so but they're all placed really well in the context of their albums. just wish Chaplin had sung more Brian songs cos Sail On is a slapper.
    March 23 02:33 AM
  • Rowan5215 and I realise its the benefit of modern boxset releases but shuffle the tracklist a little and I have no problem with listening to the Smile Sessions version of Smile. all the songs sound as close to done as they're even gonna get to me. (Good Vibrations is a terrible closer tho)
    March 23 01:22 AM
  • Rowan5215 Yeah the spoken word tracks are all pretty awful on the early albums lmao. mono, I think I have mono for everything up to Friends? Leaving This Town was fine but dragged on a lot. feels like they just sort of put a few Chaplin Fataar solo tracks on those albums rather than fully integrating them with the band. shame
    March 23 01:16 AM
  • Rowan5215 how ****ing good is The Trader tho
    March 23 12:22 AM
  • Rowan5215 I only listened to CATP yesterday for the first time, to be fair. dug the second half (Dennis' stuff espesh) but the first half is pretty trash. Today's kinda the same, the second half is absolutely wonderful but the first is decent but basic Beach Boys (with some terribad lyrics). the high score for that one surprises me
    March 23 12:21 AM
  • Papa Universe I am en train de digging into more of Taeko soon. Subsequently I am planning on expanding my ambient knowledge with more or Alva Noto. Any other classic ambient recs?
    March 20 04:44 PM
  • Rowan5215 o s*** didn't even know he had one
    March 19 06:26 AM
  • Rowan5215 Goddamnit I just want a whole album of Feel Flows. smfh
    March 19 06:17 AM
  • Rowan5215 the soft piano tracks were ****in amazing tbh. coulda done without the porno horns on the other tracks but ye. my real question is are Carl's solo albums good

    March 15 04:29 PM
  • Gyromania Oh lmao. Will check it out
    March 13 10:24 PM
  • Papa Universe Imma say, Romantique might not be Taeko's best album, but Dawn of Rain is one of her best songs. Period.
    March 13 07:08 PM

    March 6 11:09 PM
  • TwigTW Great--looking forward to it!
    March 6 08:19 AM
  • Arcade yeah i gave it one listen and it was okish. definitely nowhere near as good as any EBTG album but it's inoffensive enough.
    March 6 01:47 AM
  • TwigTW Hey there Fripp, I noticed you gave the new David Byrne a great rating. Here are some still shots and videos from the ?American Utopia? tour in NJ you might find interesting - http://www.brooklynvegan.com/david-byrne-debuted-untethered-american-utopia-tour-in-nj-video-pics-setlist/

  • DoofusWainwright Tick tock what - I?ve listened to both of your boys albums. Remix album is decent for a remix album, I don?t think any of the artists are supplying career best sort of stuff but it flows well for a compilation. The ambient thing I need to listen to again. Haven?t managed to get to your downloads yet so forgive me, give me and Boney one more day, don?t take him from me
