David Sylvian - Beekeeper's Apprentice



Ambient guitar with frequent pitch bends, soft bells and chimes, soft drones, ephemeral guitar fuzz, occasional feedback and something that sounds like bowed strings.

Museum quality!

A Pete Namlook discussion is surely in order under this topic later
but right now, a fellow on the Quadrophonic Quad forum (which is excellent)
is selling about two dozen of the Namlook DTS surround discs (without the CDs & cases)
for $10 each which is excellent for this OOP music. I paid way more for my collection.
Here's a link to his thread. (I have purchased a couple of discs from him before.)

Glad to read your review.

I don't really understand how the cancelation works. When I flip the switch, like you, my sense is that the volume increases by a notch, which seems like a "trick" for improving the signal rather than true cancelation.  Regardless, they sound good either way. So this is more of my skepticism shining through rather than a genuine complaint about the headphones.

well I wish they would lower the volume one step when you activate the ANC, when I A/B I do press both one volume step down and anc button at the same time to hear the difference. In most cases, it will sound better with ANC, but the ANC will make it more warm sounding, some music can benifit from that "saturation" so what you simply have is a choice when to use it or not even when listen in silent room.  the ANC will only work in specific scenarios it is not as good as sealed headphones, but for constant noise, it can be.

Open ANC phones is still to prefer if you care about your ears, these phones will create less sound pressure then typical sealed IEMs.
this is a good thing, it is a big strain on the ear otherwise.  The Jumpers should be a lot thicker, it would make it more comofortable to have in your ear.
The comfort is not very high, but I think maybe my ears will get less sensitive to have those jumpers pushing in the ear after some time maybe.

Steve Roach & Loren Nerell - Texture Wall

This is really unbelievable how good this is, totally takes over my mind and subconscious really really deep hypnotizing music in fact one of the deepest mind trip albums I got, the sound quality is really top notch, this is drone ambient in the highest order, I also like the whole microcomismic pressence on the album, these grasshopper sounds almost alien but still hypnotizing if you listen close to it, it could sound like an advanced modular patch too with looping,  always nice to come back to steve roach album between 1999-2007 era, they sound so good, it is truly timeless music here that never gets old, and it maintain to be the most important music on an existential level for me.

I think it's awesome. Can't wait for the album to come out.

Yes.  It's about time!  Saw them open for Ride in the early 90s.  Fantastic show.

Congratulations, Stephen!

I've been enjoying your "Music To Walk Through" album this week.  Some really great ambient textures in there.
