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.

Autumn Of Communion 5.

Just received this as my first disc went missing in the post !!!! This is a grower, I liked it well enough first couple of listens but now it's burned into my world......I really like it. As expected from the cover, a darker offering but some beautiful moments also.

Blake Gibson/ Robert Davies - Quiraing , has been on constant play also. Really beautiful album that will be up there as a favourite in 2015.

Need to go and check out Pixells II

Very nice looking, new bandcamp page for DataObscura, will prove very useful  :)

Off to check it out right now.

Opaline is excellent Pete. Congratulations, a really beautiful piece of work.

Another new addition that is on constant play this week Andy Tillison Diskdrive - Fog ....... The guy from prog rockers The Tangent (ace band btw !!). Electronic/ambient/berlin school with a wee hint of jazz and prog rock. Fair few genres then :). Absolutely superb album. They have found a couple of boxes of this hard to get CD and it can be ordered from The Tangent's website. Highly recommended, something a wee bit different.

My CD from Robert arrived today.

First listen. I like it a lot. Fair mix of ambient styles. Beautiful artwork. Second play imminent, looking forward to it  :D

Just listened to Opaline on Bandcamp. Absolutely beautiful work, quite stunning actually. Congratulations on that Pete. Deserves a CD release that does. On my urgent download list.

Away to check out Iris now  :D

I seemed to have missed this release.

What a stunning album cover that is. I have been there. Awe inspiring place.

The soundcloud sample is excellent, hope to get this very soon indeed.

Robert Wyatt - Rock Bottom.



Just managed to get hold of this 1974 album today. Non ambient obviously but there are some ambient elements to it. An acquired taste Mr Wyatt possibly ! However this is a beautiful , melancholy slice of Canterbury Prog. Love it.

I am hoping to order Filaments next week. Just listened to the samples on Robert's website again. Like it.
In addition the artwork is absolutely beautiful.

Have to say I really like "Nest" also. Beautiful album. And Morphology on Anodize, just listened to that this morning actually.

No probs. Well deserved praise indeed.

That's a damn shame putting a neg review on for that. Is there not a way you can respond to that pointing out the error by the user in a post or comment ? I thought I had seen that on the app store with other developers. Maybe not though.

Need a few positive USA users to cancel out such a stupid negative review.

Yes Richard I will do that. Thanks.

Would love to go and see Robert and Steve Roach live, however from a family perspective I can't justify the cost of the journey over the pond etc . Hope you enjoy it.
