I will start on my exercise program tomorrow.  Tonight, however, I will order another pizza and veg out on the couch melting my brain with Hypnos CD's, which make me not want to move except lie perfectly still and gain more weight.

Is it just me or is the state or current rock music incredibly sad??  Am I just getting old (41) and just not "hip" anymore?  I've been playing a lot of "old stuff" like early/classic Journey, Genesis, Yes, etc. and DAMN it makes you wonder where the MAGIC went in rock n'roll.  Now playing: Journey "Captured".  What a f'ng KICK ASS band they were!!!!

Thanks to Mike and Lena for sending me the CHILDREN of Alcyone disc with correct title, without requesting a replacement. Nice! You are da ambient bomb...

Siouxsie and the Banshees reissues--"Hyaena," "Tinderbox," "Kiss in the Dreamhouse," and "Nocturne."  Definitely worth getting if you're a fan, they sound great w/some very good bonus tracks.

Seren, are you working on anything new these days?

1546
Chidlren of Alcyone will be the followup to Children of Alcyone, followed by Chidren of Alcapone.  ha ha

Regardless of typos, this is another great Brand disc.  Highly recommended to all space chidren and chidlren of ambient.

There's a typo on the disc label: it reads "Chidren of Alcyone."   :-[

Barry Craig=Barry Andrews from Shriekback? Look closely...

But seriously, I got this Garcia disc today.  I think this is far from the best thing he's done.  The first two tracks were pretty ho-hum.  The third piece, "From the Bottom of the Sea," is great (maybe my fave Garcia piece) but it is NOT new, this was on the "Maybe Forgotten Forever" 2-disc retrospective several years back.  I was really looking forward to the 18-min. "My Minimalist Life", only to find it overly long with a repetitive and quite annoying theme. Nothing worse than a bad idea extended to almost 20 minutes...Trance Port could take some tips from Hypnos Secret Sounds on how to do a CDR release right: don't use sticker labels (the one on my copy was somewhat haphazardly placed on the disc, and I can feel a "bubble" between disc/label, it also overlaps slightly over the center spindle); don't use cheap paper for the booklet.  Overall, a decent release but musically the pieces are really different.  I would say this is more like a collection of tracks than a cohesive, flowing thing.  I would recommend "Maybe Forgotten" over this one.

Oh, NOW I see--Stokes is really A Produce!!!

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

1555
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

1556
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.
