I'm with 9Dragons on this issue, also.  If something's going to be released then do it the right way--a physical product!  :o

Well I've been wondering if "M. Griffin" and "D. Fulton" are the same interchangeable ambient entity.  You never see ANY pictures of those guys together.  The only pics you see of "M. Griffin" are usually on the back of the CD booklets and it's real hard to tell what he actually looks like, what with all the swirly psychedelic photography obscuring the faces.  Come to think of it, I'm starting to wonder if M. Griffin and Saul Stokes are the same person.  This is getting weird... ;D

Received this Monday and must say it is an excellent pure atmo work from Steve.  The Magnificent Void has come to Earth and vacationing in the Sonoran desert.  Especially effective at high volume on a good pair of closed-ear headphones.  Turn it up, feel it in your bones!!!  ;D

Should artists who are trying to make a living paint pictures and give them away for free?  This is why I hate how the Internet has f**ked up the music industry as much as it has helped it in some ways* (*by giving people more exposure to new music).  It seems some people just don't want to pay anything for music anymore and don't see it as buying a piece of art, they see it as "too expensive" so they decide to steal it (burn copies for/from friends, download illegally, etc.) instead of pay the artist.  If you were an ambient artist and spent a lot of time creating your music, how would you like it if you weren't getting paid for your time/efforts?  ???

Please shutup and post some MP3 samples of the new HSS disc by Steve Brand, or I may have to pirate it.  ;D

This is an amazing disc, seek it out if you like deep floating ambient.  Thanks to the review on Electroambient Space.  This album delivers what I had hoped the Eluder CD on Infraction would do. ;D

Thanks man! I just ordered the Uruk-Hai release, awesome sound sample.  Thanks for pointing these out.  I wish more people would post suggestions here like this instead of exclusively in "Currently Listening."  8)

The last I heard (which was quite a few years ago), Elmar was doing techno/club music.  I believe on that website there was an announcement hinting there may be a followup to "Nocturnes."  You might want to try contacting Rudiger Gleisberg via his website, who worked with Elmar quite a bit and might know something.  Very nice guy, too.   :)

Shades of Orion 2 and Shades of Orion 3 (both w/Namlook) are two of my all-time fave DID's.

Where can you buy those Japanese versions ?

You can get them at Amazon.  If you google it should also give you a list of alternative online retailers who have these.

Jon Hassell-Last Night the Moon... This is a fantastic album of quietly disorienting texture maps.  Very dreamy, surreal.  Perfect!!

Klaus Schulze-Rheingold DVD.  The concert stuff is a bit long and boring, but disc 2 with a nice long documentary and interview by Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree makes this set worth getting.  Weird to see Klaus without the cigarette in hand.  He finally kicked the habit.  Congrats Klaus!!!

U2-No Line on the Horizon.  Bloody awful (for U2), but a decent pop record nonetheless.  Utterly forgettable above it all.

1392
Am I just imagining it or is the sound quality on the Japan mini-LP replica CD's better than the digipak reissues of the Brian Eno catalog?  I compared Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks --digipak and Japan reissue--and was convinced Japan version sounds better.  I've replaced them all now, with the exception of "The Pearl."  Cannot find a Japan issue anywhere online.

Raison d'etre-The Luminous Experience.  Nice live album.

Killing Joke-XXV Gathering DVD, Hosannas from the Basements of Hell, Nightime, Pandemonium.  I've been on a Killing Joke binge lately.  They put most metal bands to shame with their nihilistic, apocalyptic masterpieces of doom.  Jaz Coleman is truly a warped individual, but I still love 'im.

"Slow Flow" sounds like a future Steve Roach album.  Guess they beat him to the name!

1395
The sound samples are excellent. I will definitely be buying this album.  :)

Yagya-Rigning.  A stunningly beautiful recording.

Namlook/Le Mar. Latest release on Fax.  Nice stuff, nothing groundbreaking.  Never heard of this Gabriel Le Mar before.  However, the last piece, a 14-minuter, is the best pure beatless ambient track Namlook has done in many years. Brings me back to the Fax heyday of the mid-90's.

Syndromeda-The Twilight Conjunction. Ltd. edition of 300 on Ricochet Dream.  A bit disappointing, esp. since the website description said "one of his greatest efforts."

Subterranean Source-Vivid Circles.  Solid dark ambient release, mastered by R. Rich.

Klaus Schulze w/Lisa Gerrard-Rheingold Live at the Lorely.  Better than their studio release "Farscape." Disc 2 did little for me, could have done without it.

Solar Fields-Movements.  Nice release, although much of it is pretty forgettable, but he manages to create a few very strong tracks.

Still can't believe this news.  Two masters are now gone (Jorge and K. Wiese) Jorge was amazing, bringing this ancient music to people with modern technology and making it totally surreal and nothing short of magic!  A true original and visionary artist.

A 90-year-old woman told me I look like Errol Flynn.  I think she was senile, though.

I finally got around to ordering Drawn from the Well, and this is a superb release.  The first looong track is a gorgeous, pastoral, serene piece that brings to mind the drones of Alio Die and the Sylvian/Czukay albums.  Lovely stuff!
