Lots of lists here over the years as to the best Fax/Namlook material, but what about the bad or weak ones. The label was extremely prolific but there were quite a few that were v weak or even just plain bad. Below I list my least favorite series and some exceptionally bad CDs whether in a series or not:
New Organic Life--Featured granular synthesis. Whatever that is, I didn't like it. Noisy experiments.
Silence--Just could never get into this kind of modern classical ambient. There were five in the series.
Move D/Namlook--Probably the most oversaturated series. A few excellent ones but lots of weak or redundant installments.
Virtual Vices--Namlook and Spyra. Most of it, six installments, was weak however Volume 3 was excellent.
Fires of Ork--Namlook and Biosphere. Never understood what the hoopla was all about.
Labyrinth--Bland music, oversaturated by five volumes.
Steve Stoll--His series of solo albums were awful, lo fi experimental affairs.
Others: A New Consciousness 2. This album consisted of environmental sounds and no music.
