So did the new Terminator.
Hot Fuzz - my wife and I both loved this movie. The perfect combination of dry wit, directing style, over the top brutal violence, mystery, did I mention humor? Great.
I also think 'sublime' doesn't mean quite the same thing to people anymore, so the sense of opposition between beauty and 'the sublime' wouldn't necessarily be apparent (unless somebody was already familiar with the content of Burke's essay.)
Martin's website is still active and has some sound samples of his more recent work which you can find here:
Listening to Spirit Dome right now...that pounding imminent sacrifice epic tiki drum sound is so great...this album truly conjures up some powerful and terrible beauty...for some reason puts me in mind of a sonic interpretation of the Egyptian book of the Dead...
Maybe there should be an anti-Steve Roach thread alongside the pro-thread...I think it'd be funny...
Do you know what you're saying?! This website would spontaneously combust with all the hatred and rage that would be generated. I DO agree with you though, that Mantram and Trance Spirits are both lame.
