Low are ace. I love Things We Lost in the Fire.

I have been enjoying this of late. A band that were really good but probably got undone by the timing of Britpop. See also: Longpigs, The.

I'm a little perplexed by this. Pharaoh Sanders is a giant. The LSO are, well, they're the LSO aren't they.

How did Floating Points get the profile (not to mention the budget) to record something with them? He's not that big of a deal is he? Or am I showing my ignorance?

I don't have an answer to that question.

It is in fact one of the few albums I have however bought this year.

Definitely worth a listen, even if, dare I say it, there is little of any novelty in it.

Funny, was just listening to Siamese Dream earlier.

Every bit as gorgeously good as I remembered. Mayonnaise = Masterpiece.

Tool, carrying the torch for melodic prog-metal
Can be quite hypnotic, always enjoyed their sound.

Made me listen to this oldie :smiler:

In my world that ain't really an oldie :smiler:

That's a band I've not heard of before as best I can remember.
I like it. :newthumb:

Got a lot of 'catching up' to do as permanent retirement approaches.
