You're the idiot if you had to do DNA testing on discs to tell if they were used or not! In Lloyd's defense, a lot of the imports were never shrinkwrapped and when they made it to the US they weren't always perfect.  Also I have opened plenty of sealed CD's only to find the disc had a big nasty scratch on it.  It's all relative.

I don't even bother with pre-orders anymore.  Inevitably there's some kind of snafu.

What a shocker.  I did not even realize she was that young!  A sad loss for the ambient world and especially for her husband, my most heartfelt condolences to Will Long.

Everything and Nothing / slow (like molasses) music mailorder
« on: July 09, 2009, 06:30:51 PM »
Although it's unreasonable to expect every mailorder/online music company to be as quick as Amazon, I've run into some recently that really do take their time in getting out items, and I really don't understand this.  The worst offender: RADIO MASSACRE INTERNATIONAL.  These guys proclaim all orders will ship within 7 days of payment, yet my last order shipped 16 days after payment.  Another RMI order I placed before that was similar, took almost 3 weeks to get my item...  I finally received a LOTUSPIKE order after almost 2 weeks, which was shipped from the same state I live in.  I placed an order on a Monday, and that weekend received a message stating my order had shipped.  When I finally received it at the end of the following week, the postmark indicated it shipped two days after it had supposedly already shipped.  Music mail order with speedy delivery: HYPNOS, DiN, Rapoon--they are consistently excellent!

I LOVE Redshift.  I think their website is still www.Redshift.biz, they have a shop to purchase CD's, prices are kinda high but all their albums are totally worth it.  My personal faves would be Redshift Wild 2 and Toll.  The new one, Turning Towards Us, is excellent as well.

Whoa, I definitely did not know that.  That piece that opens the movie is just the most chilling thing I've ever heard.  It was doombient before there was even an "ambient"!  ;D

There was some great "dark electronic" music by Wendy Carlos in the 1980 film "The Shining."   :-*

Would you accept the tag "creepy ambient" for Distance to Zero?

Still like this one a lot after a few more spins.  It should be said, though, this isn't what I'd call a space drone release, it is more "electronica" sounding, with subtle melodies, samples, glitch elements, and definitely more "upbeat" than anything previous by Oophoi, so if you're looking for "Athlit" part two, this isn't it.  Nevertheless, I think it was an experiment with very good results.  Should surprise a lot of fans.

Wow, that was a very "analytical" review.  Male/female, yin/yang, mental/sensual, you covered it all!  ;)

Just finished my first listen and this is a VERY NICE disc, it should not disappoint those who ordered it. Reminds me very much of Rapoon's excellent "Time Frost" release on GM. Nice mix of glitch, ambient drones, and interesting samples.  Also another wonderful cover artwork here.  Buy without hesitation...

Just got this today...The first track uses a sample from Genesis' "Watcher of the Skies" on the Foxtrot album (??!)  Strangely, no credit given here but there is acknowledgement of a sample taken from Penguin Cafe Orchestra....

I'm disappointed.  I thought there'd be AT LEAST five more releases this year.  ;)

"Flow" is a hella old disc, dude.  Came out in late 90's(?).  Get "Beyond City Light", from several years back, it is much better.

I was just going to mention this one in "now playing" but this is just too great to mention in passing.  My expectations of "Mirrorball" were not that high after the recent Foxx collaboration album with Steve Jansen (ex-Japan, Sylvian, etc.), which was so disappointing (a bunch of ambient noodling with no soul is how'd I'd describe that one).  Guthrie's guitars are chiming and gorgeous as usual, but it's Foxx's Gregorian chant-like vocals a la his "Cathedral Oceans" series that really shine and bring everything together.  A very beautiful, spiritual album, and highly recommended.  Definitely a high position on my Top 10 list for 2009 so far.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Rapoon "Dark Rivers"
« on: June 07, 2009, 11:52:54 PM »
To those who "gave up" on Rapoon releases, this one's for you.  I decided not to order this one initially from the short sound samples I had heard, plus the last couple of releases were pretty uneven and too experimental for my taste.  Dark Rivers, however, is one to get: dark, very droney, and much more like his earlier music, but with a more hi-tech (i.e. not "lo-fi") sound.  No weird female vocals, no overuse of spoken samples.  He got it right on this one.
