El Culto - the "extreme" comment is about David Sylvian, not Steve Roach.

Sorry, Ive misread the post. Thanks for the clarification!

Yes, we deleted the abusive posts.
Please don't take any offense that we deleted your post with them. You were right to point out the problem.
The el culto thread is still there, just farther down than you were looking. Remember it got bumped up because of the posts, so went back down when we deleted them.

U2--Songs of Innocence.  Much better than No Line on the Horizon.  Some really good tracks on this.  I am torn, as bono alluded to once, whether the band should keep going or call it a day.  This is no Boy or October, but  still worth checking out.

Yesterday someone posted in this thread a nasty message against Tomas Weiss about making money off dead people.   I hope they are kicked off this forum.  In the meantime, can you please reinstate the thread, because I keep up with the label this way.  Thanks.

Steve Roach - Mystic Chords and Sacred Spaces 2 ie parts 3 and 4.

Listening to the free download whilst amazon deliver the CD. It is wonderful.
I use Bandcamp for purchases frequently. I also check out stuff I would never otherwise hear or consider purchasing. Many of these listens end up in purchases of the download or CD. This also goes for Spotify which is a superb resource for listening and again often ends up with folk getting sales of their music.

I have seen some artists restricting the amount that can be available for "streaming" , as it is referred to , by maybe say having half the album only available after purchase. This seems fair enough although personally I prefer being able to check out the whole thing.

If it was my own music not sure how I would feel, depends on what you want to achieve, ie get your music out there for folk to hear or achieve maximum pounds/dollars. It is a small genre we are into here, so it is a difficult balancing act for some.

At the end of the day there is absolutely no comparison quality wise with this streaming and listening to a quality download / CD on a proper hi-fi system.

Reminds me I need to get that new track you put up there Pete, will do soon.

Like Dave, I don't need one (have a Roku 3 on both TVs already) but ordered one for the $19 intro deal for Prime customers. I'll probably give it to my mom, so she can be introduced to the wonderful world of Netflix streaming.

I pre-ordered one as well.  I don't really need it as I have a roku on one tv and a PS3 on the other, but I couldn't resist at that price.  My college age son will be moving out soon(I hope) so he'll probably take the PS3 and then I get some use out of the fire stick.

Opfer is a new project by Dutch artist Ian Martin and Belgian Artist Sebastien Crusener and Monument is their first album. Ian Martin needs no introduction to fans of adventurous electronic music. His versatile style allowed him to release on illustrious labels such as Bunker, Abstract Forms or Further Records. Sebastien Crusener has provided all source material in form of field recordings for their project and Ian modelled an abstract, minimal and dark ambient album that showcases a bleakness and almost disturbing coldness but yet makes you feel safely encapsulated in a world of comfort and strange beauty. Additionally Sebastien has kindly provided some wonderful poetry that gives you more insight into the world of Opfer. Dark ambient at it's best.
150 manufactured hand numbered CDs in slim line dvd case. The first 100 copies include a limited sheet with poetry by Sebastien Crusener.
Digital release to follow 5-6 weeks after initial release.
