2350 Broadway 4 is similar in warmth and style to Inland. I like it very much. I think the 2350 Broadway series is one of the best on FAX.

Tonight's plays Julio's new album. Wonderful. I love it. And Ozric Tentacles latest, yet again, great stuff !!

Tetsu Inoue - Inland
Bought this on iTunes; Discog prices seem steep. Thanks for the tip, thirdsystem. @#$@#$ so amazing!

So glad you like it Chris. Beautiful, warm ambience from Tetsu for his last album, hope there will be more. Wherever Tetsu has gone I hope he is in a good place.

Just bought Brian Eno - Another Green World to check out his pre ambient work. Interesting album. Bit of a Canterbury prog feel at times with hints of his ambient future direction. By chance I have discovered that I recorded a BBC documentary about Eno ages ago which is on my Sky HD box, entitled Another Green World. Totally forgot about this so looking forward to checking it out.

Peter F Hamilton - The Naked God
I have just finished the final book in this trilogy. An epic tale if inter galactic worlds, wars, lifeforms and technology. This series is one of the most amazing things I have ever read. It seems I have been living and travelling in these worlds for over a year as I ploughed my way through the astounding, mind boggling existence in these three massive books.

Now onto Red Rising - Pierce Brown which is reminiscent of the Wool trilogy. Possibly even better. Loving it.

Robert Rich - Trance and Drones

As I continue to work my way through Robert's and Steve Roach's discography decided to purchase this one. Reading Richard Gurtler's excellent review on discogs sealed the deal.

Robert was only twenty years old when he recorded this. Astounding music for one so young. Beautiful album.

The Ambient Gardener - Spring. Just received this disc, a collection of beautiful ambient music from the FAX label compiled by the great man himself. Wonderful. I will be surrounded by Pete Namlook's music tonight, quite literally, DTS mode will be activated.

Disc arrived in Caledonia today Julio. Beautiful music, enjoying it very much.

Nice package also. That is a beautiful beach photo btw, it is so like my stretch of beach here it is unreal, could have been taken there ! Yours will be a tad warmer though  ;).

Cheers.

To be honest you cant really go wrong with the new one. Another solid album from the Ozrics, 2 CD for 9.99 and I bought it in a High Street store....... that doesn't happen often !!

The last two albums are equally strong Paper Monkies and The Yum Yum Tree. My entire CD collection is packed up and inaccessible now due to a looming house move :-\ so I cant check my other older discs. I think one of my faves is Waterfall Cities.

I started with the Eternal Wheel compilation when I saw their very cool name  ;D it is excellent but might be difficult to get hold of now. There is this one on amazon at a very good price though http://www.amazon.co.uk/Introducing-Ozric-Tentacles/dp/B00BQ3K172/ref=sr_1_4?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1432404524&sr=1-4&keywords=ozric+tentacles

Impressive hippy space rock with stunning guitar work and excellent synth play......The Ozric Tentacles  8)

Beautiful album cover Julio, I will check this out tonight whilst partaking of a wee dram of Edradour  ;)

Looking forward to both already.

Ha , glad my claim has borne fruit  ;)

2350Broadway, Shades of Orion, From Within. All wonderful, definitive FAX ambient collections. Silence V also, masterpiece. Tetsu Inoue - Inland..............could go on but better stop there  ;)

Currently wearing out my Tensegrity CD from ...txt. I am not really one for compilations, this however is one of the most beautiful collections of music I have ever heard. Gorgeous, relaxing ambient works that for me sum up the wonderful music of  ...txt.

Just had an email from Lee .....on sale for 8 along with others on http://www.txtrecordings.co.uk/

pre ordered Motionfield - Luftrum so listening to the download. This is excellent. Melody orientated, chilled ambient with subtle and appropriate beats. A real cracking album.

Now playing - Picture Palace Music - ReVision. TDs Thorsten Quaeshning's band. Good stuff.

Certainly agree about "Lilith" pressings.

Bought two of their Tangerine Dream releases. The "Mysterious Semblance at the Strand of Nightmares" vinyl was very poor quality. Surface noise was obtrusive for a brand new record. Doubt I would buy any of that labels output again and it certainly wasn't cheap either. Having said that their other TD release "Run To Vegas" was fine.

I mainly buy second hand vinyl......70s Prog addiction :) However all the other brand new pressing I own are excellent, especially the Boards Of Canada stuff.

On constant play for the past fortnight..........

Autumn Of Communion 5 . This is a grower. One of the best in the series.
Blake Gibson/ Robert Davies - Quiraing
Igneous Flame  - Opaline

All of these will be in my top albums of 2015, no doubt about it.

Andy Tillison Diskdrive - Fog . Best purchase of the year so far. What a stunning but obscure album. Ambient,Berlin School, Prog, Jazz. Absolutely love it.

I think I have finally settled on the Vertex theme. :)

The gray was not for me  ;) I am trying out the vertex. Quite nice this  :)

Any word on the download store Mike ?

Hope it will still be happening.

What an excellent review Richard, with which I fully agree.

Really is a cracking album and it's great that Robert is still producing music of this caliber.

This will definitely be a top album for me in 2015.
