Hey Third System, I couldn't help but notice in another thread that you're a big Black Sabbath fan and don't boycott their albums.  ;)

If Black Sabbath ever released an album called, "Get A Clue," I wouldn't buy it!   ;)

(That said, I remember listening to "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" as a kid, but it seemed campy to me.   :) )

Forest that last statement is Sacrilege  >:( >:( ;) .

Scott . Thanks for noticing that, good to know you read of others class music taste  :)

In respect of Sabbath, I think much of their music and lyrics makes one think deeply about life, the universe and everything. Both sides of the coin. This is a good thing.

Hey at the end of the day I personally was not comfortable with the 6.66. Humble apologies for mentioning it. I also felt the reply was poor. At the end of the day there has been a discussion and opinions shared. This is also good. The lad has had a fair bit of interest generated , perhaps said pricing is a good marketing tool.

Each to their own. Love , peace and harmony is the way forward  :)  ;)

The Fires of Ork 2  bandcamp stream. Namlook / Jenssen.

I have the first one which is a bit too beat orientated for my tastes. Still good though. First three tracks on this are certainly more ambient. I like. Will have to get this. (Cheers for the tip J )

The story;

Check out the members project news, as usual, to support artists who post here.
See the Obsidian topic and interested, follow the link.

Receive cryptic, dismissive, flippant reply.
Decision made.

The End

PS Folk can release whatever they want and charge what they want. Just to clarify.

Iconic artist and music,  seems to have been with me all through my life

My Heroes album , utterly superb !!! , will be on today and then Spotify for more Bowie.

Decided to go for the download just now . I will consider getting the CD also as that beautiful album cover deserves to be held and appreciated. Stunning music being eagerly devoured and enjoyed. It will be on constant rotation for a good while.

Also got the Gongland album , great stuff, thanks for that deal Forest and Projekt.

I noticed that price also. Not appropriate I feel.

If that is changed I may check the music out, but can you clarify the position Mr Diatonis

I still remember seeing Sabbath doing Paranoid in London shortly after it was released ... now I feel old   :-\

Wow, how cool is that !! I am still quite a young lad  ;) so couldn't quite make that gig.

My son saw Sabbath at the download festival here a few years back. Made my year, my son witnessing live Sabbath , the band from my very early teens , at a summer Rock festival. Couldn't quite believe it. Said they were excellent.

Now playing - Christina Vantzou No3. Have noticed several people mentioning this album on the net so today I finally get round to checking out the YouTube stream. Very, very nice indeed, drone based ambient but many more styles present. Really like it. On the list.

NP Mr Budd - Avalon Sutra.

I have been in Black Sabbath mode again,

Black Sabbath, the first one, released in 1970, 46 years old and what an album it is.
Paranoid - , current track playing "Fairies Wear Boots "  ;D
Just ordered my favourite Sabbath album on 2015 remastered vinyl- Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, to replace my worn out 42 year old cassette. Thought I had it on CD but there you go.

Last night;
Soft Machine ,   2, fourth, 5 , well jazzed out so I was.
And to fall asleep to; Thom Brennan - Shimmer.

Will have to redress the balance today with multiple ambient recover.

Yes seems to be a bit of movement on re-releasing FAX which is great. The DSOTM with Schulze and now this. I am sure the "ELEKTRONIK" release is available on Material Objects bandcamp. Rights seem to be reverting back to the artists. Now if only Tetsu Inoue would turn up safe and well.

Also hope the Dave Moufang collabs become available on bandcamp and hope against hope the full FAX catalogue. I have a lot but still much to go !!!

I was a bit gutted when all the releases were removed from iTunes UK . Sad and caused complete havoc with all my album art. I spent hundreds of ús on downloads so was slightly cheesed off about that .

Good to see some albums becoming available again from Pete's life project.

Yep it's expensive and becoming an issue. Will probably be the same the other direction also, especially with the exchange rate.

Tidal Pool order shortly though Julio  ;)

Sounds interesting Richard. New to me also. Will check some of his music out.

Thanks for the info Forest and David. Not sure if I can wait till the 22nd, we shall see.

The insured postage from the US is way too much so I will have to ponder on CD or Download. Instant gratification is winning at the moment   ;)

Pete Namlook/ Charles Uzzell Edwards - Create. Long form spacey ambient with some appropriate beats . Underrated I feel.

Forest Fang - The Sleepwalker's Ocean , bandcamp stream . Stunning !!! Urgently required.

Listening to the bandcamp stream of this, utterly beautiful. Magnificent work.

Would really love to get the CD , however having checked the postage scenario to the UK on the projekt site it is looking like $10 plus maybe another $10-$15 for the EMS. Anyone confirm the postage story to UK for projekt? I will email them in a bit.

If I can't get a UK supplier I will buy the download Forest. Really is something special.

Steve Roach - Tucson Live 2014 and Emotions Revealed

Both very good indeed and on name your price at bandcamp.

That's interesting Dave. I can see reaching that stage. I also now have ambient of every description for every mood but I am not in overload yet,in fact still hungrily collecting and exploring as much as I can. I have been in ambient mode for several years now to the virtual exclusion of all else.

Think I  bought three non ambient in 2014 so this year there has definitely been more. Also got Peter Gabriel 1 on vinyl for Christmas and I forgot about The Tangent - Le Sacre de Travail. So that's up to 8 now. A good year for non ambient then  ;)

Think I am missing quality releases from my old Prog bands like Yes/Genesis/Rush the most. I am talking Close To The Edge / Lamb Lies Down / Hemispheres quality here. Can't see anything ever approaching this now.

So I am very glad for the stimulating and thought provoking world of ambient music.

Everything and Nothing / Non Ambient Purchases 2015
« on: December 29, 2015, 02:34:08 PM »
I was thinking that this might be the year I have purchased the fewest non ambient albums ever, but maybe not.....

Riverside - Fear, Love and the Time Machine . May actually be release of the year, all genres, for me.

Todd Rundgren - Global , very good but mainly bought for the DVD of older classic Todd tunes.

Anderson/Ponty Band - very good but a murderous reggae version of an old Yes classic track thereon.

Mabel Greer's Toyshop - New Way Of Life . Chris Squire's first band. THE best bass player of all time. Made without him as he has departed earth :(

Ozric Tentacles - Technicians of the Sacred

Tangerine Dream - Quantum Key , great new Dream music with the lingering touch of Herr Froese.

Think that is about it.

FAX CDs to upgrade from downloads( ie important stuff !!)
Namlook/ Inoue - 62 Eulengasse , possibly my favourite FAX album
Namlook/ Spyra - Virtual Vices 4 , superb jazz orientated with ambient also. My first ever FAX download a few years back.
Namlook - A View to a Chill
Gate/Sol , beautiful ambient with some acoustic instruments. Underrated gem of an album.

Steve Roach - Day Out Of Time

Vinyl - Floating Points - Elaenia .
