Otavan Veret-s/t.  Recent release on Cyclic Law.  Another slice of gloomy thick and atmospheric dark ambient from Cyclic Law.  I'd describe this as cosmic ritual space ambient.  Very nice album.

I haven't bought them.  I am waiting for more Hypnos releases and then I'll probably place one big order.

Been waiting 20 years for this and sadly found out over a month too late.  Their show in San Francisco on November 7  has already sold out.  Geez, I hope some greedy scalpers will take my big bucks, if I can find one by then.  There's some video footage on YouTube of the reunited group and while they don't sound quite as visceral as I remember when  they were all around 24 (back in '94 opening for Catherine Wheel), they sound pretty good.  Hope they make some new music.

I can't remember seeing any discussions or comments after the last couple Hypnos CDs were released.  This would be Antonio Testa and Subradial.  Just wondering why ?.......

Just like the music?   ;)

Just received these in the mail:

Mick Chillage--Saudade
Miss Garden--In the Silence of the Subconscious
Lee Norris/Porya Hatami--The Longing Daylight

All on the Carpe Sonum label, started recently by the guy who runs Ear Rational and was the US distributor for Fax records...

I think Peter was at his peak with Security.  The live album Plays Live from that tour is amazing and so powerful.  I agree that So was a step down and too commercial.  I saw that tour and he was great, as he still played many of the older solo material.  It's puzzling what happened to his songwriting and creativity over the subsequent years.  His last solo album was weak, and these recent releases of cover songs and symphonic performances are just awful...

I listened to Trick of the Tail yesterday and boy what a mediocre album.  The first track is good but the rest is meandering and totally forgettable.  IMO, the next one Wind and Wuthering was so much better. 

I've been enjoying all the interviews posted on YouTube from the reissue CD/DVD sets.

Led Zeppelin I-111 (reissues).  Great live disc Paris 1969 on the first one. 

The Fixx--Live 1982 King Biscuit Flower Hour.

Sonic Youth--Daydream Nation deluxe 2 CD.  IMO their best album.  An excellent live disc is included on this release.

Velvet Underground--At the End of Cole Street (2cd live 1969). 

Structures from Silence
Dreamtime Return

Yes, all these projects can be confusing.  Actually Amir Baghiri appeared on two Solitaire albums, which are Nocturnes and Fearless.

Every album on the txt website is "Sold Out".   Hmmm, maybe because you only pressed 100 and they sold out in one day.  Seems like an ego thing to me  ;)

That's funny, I think my favorite album is Wind & Wuthering, with the amazing Afterglow and Blood on the Rooftops. 

Question:  post Gabriel, who wrote the lyrics?

Any opinions on Gabriel vs Post Gabriel, favorite releases, etc?  I just got Seconds Out, excellent live album where Steve Hackett was still in the band.  How about those 2008 reissues which many fans condemned for remixing the music, however slightly?

It's overrated.  I was disappointed when I received it back in 2003.  I found it hard to get into. 

Maybe nothing beats it after release, although I think pretty much everything beats it which came before  ;)

Grassow never appeared on any Solitaire album with Gleisberg.

Experiments in Silence--Hidden Harmonic.  Just got this two days ago, excellent disc.  This was sold out but I found it on the Databloem website.  I always check there as they tend to have copies of the sold out stuff on Silent Season and txt labels.

Re: txt label.  Not sure why they keep pressing so few copies when the demand is so obviously high. 

Lately it's been $100-$150 per month, which is crazy!  Been going hogwild with used rock CDs at Amoeba and the sold out txt label stuff.  Oh yeah, also spent $40 on Blue Mosque 2-CD by muslimgauze.
