Was 2001 a slab of light hearted entertainment?  Hmmmmm...

I think so, well ahead of its time but still light entertainment based around Sci Fi writings, maybe some are more factually correct than others but they are just slabs of cinema designed to entertain to one degree or another:-)

While not wanting to appear too outspoken and the fact that I haven't seen it (not that seeing it would make any difference to me anyway) but do people who watch Sci Fi movies always look for something in it more than just a slab of light hearted entertainment:-)

The words Science followed by FICTION tends to give it a bit of a clue as to its content, this not being Science FACT :-)

Analogue kid--from Dynasty (1979) onward, I totally lost interest.  Got to see them on 79 tour with original lineup.  It was pretty mind blowing.  I think even my Dad enjoyed it (one of the best presents he ever gave me, namely because he knew how much I loved them and was willing to take me ).  I'd have to say Dressed to Kill from '75 is my favorite album, with Destroyer and the debut self titled one close behind. Not to mention Alive, a legendary live album.

You gotta give them credit for spending two hours putting on the makeup for all those years. 

Looks like we're in the minority here.  I can understand most negative opinions.  I'd call them a guilty pleasure these days.  Cheesy,  yet oh so good.....

 I am not surprised we are in the minority on here, its an ambient music forum LOL but I agree with all your comments above :-)

I thought they were brill, saw them quite a few times live during the early 80t's with and without the make up (them not me LOL) and even went on a weekend trip to the Phillipeshalle in Dusseldorf to see them was and still is the only time I have ever gone from the UK to Europe to see a band live :-)

Its a strange one for me this is, as I tend to only listen once, to something that is streamed, even if I like it I don't generally go back to it, I think its because of time restraints. There is so much music available these days that it is hard to make a choice as to what to spend the hard earned cash on.

I brought a CD at the weekend after listening to clips a couple of months ago prior to the pending release date, this is in my opinion the way it has always been with me, although the promotion is slightly different in todays market place, that promotion comes before the album is available and that promotion tended to be the "single 45 vinyl or single CD". Although that in itself was sometimes not considered, because if you were a fan of a particular group, artist, etc. you brought their latest release without question.

In days gone by everyman and his dog taped the chart show from the radio on their trusty cassette player, I even used to record tracks direct off the TV from forward thinking shows like "The Tube" or "Rock goes to College" here in the UK. This is no different to ripping stuff from You Tube, SoundCloud, Bandcamp whathaveyou. In my opinion its not down to if the whole of the music is available or just a few clips, its not even about supporting a particular band, artist etc. its about if you really want to own that product, to be able to do whatever you want with it and listen to it on various devices in its "best quality".

Obtaining the music in its best quality is the only way to get the most rewarding experience from it, this goes for music of any genre and as such any music that is available to hear via an internet stream should never the best quality available, if your happy to listen to music in substandard quality then that's your bonus, you will always be able to get free music and nobody on this planet will be able to stop that happening. There are too many people fretting about HOW we get music these days instead of remembering why we used to buy it, why we had to have that latest released gatefold sleeve LP with all the info, the pleasure we used to get from putting it on the player and hearing most of the tracks on it for the first time and then not taking it off again until we knew all the tracks on it like the backs of our hands. The physical product in all its glory, and in its best quality, will always win over a downloaded PC file as far as I am concerned.

This is a 28 minute dark ambient drift I recorded live last night on to stereo tracks in Cubase on my PC. I used my Korg Volca keys, MI Shruthi 4 pole mission and a Nintendo DS lyte running Korg DS10 going through a Boss ME50B pedal, Boss DD20 delay and Boss PS-2 pitch shifter/delay. It is uploaded as a wav file so sound quality should be good, its also downloadable so wont tie up your PC if you have other things to do on the net whilst listening to it on your preferred media player. :-)

Hello Andy, thanks for having a listen and yes it was a live recording improv, I just hit the record button and play the synths, all hardware apart from the Cubase as a recorder :-)
