Yes.....it is an interesting album. Probably a keeper but quite different to his Porcupine Tree material.

I was fortunate enough to attend PT's last performance at the Albert Hall in 2010 and I miss them now more than ever. When he released 'Transcience' a couple of years ago and referred to it as 'his more accessible music' I think it was pretty obvious that he would lighten up eventually :O)

How ironic that after nearly 30 years at it, and when asked for a single by the record company back in the 90s he presented them with 'Moonloop' (circa 40 minutes long!), it’s his poppiest project that actually gets him his first British No.1.

Beautifully produced as usual and the Out of Print Box Set has everything you could want, CD, 24/96 2-ch , 24/96 5.1-ch and an instrumental version of all tracks. The second CD is full of demo versions and songs that missed the cut (incl. 'Ask Me Nicely ' the original title track).

A keeper and definitely a grower.

P.S. Apparently SW was on the red sofa of BBC Breakfast this morning and also in The Guardian newspaper. Gonna be a lot of Prog Rockers needing counselling this weekend :O)

For jazz fans - there's a great talent coming! Andrea Motis!

A still very young Spaniard who sings excellent and plays the trumpet just as well. Their interpretations of some of the Jazz standards are really peculiar and surprising. TIDAL has some albums of her.
On YouTube under Andrea Motis there are some music films from her and her group.
The Hallelujah of her also gets under her skin. I am curious about the course of her career!

Have fun listening

David Gilmour Live in Pompeii on Bluray. Beautifully photographed, great sound quality. Some classics, some recents so a nice balanced set list. I remember as a kid, bands like Pink Floyd were blacklisted as 'dinosaurs' and it must amuse DG that, in his 70s, he can still provide a very artistic, thoughtful, expressive and occasionally explosive entertainment that is a joy to behold.

Good on him !

Highly Recommended,

~M~

David Coverdale's "Northwinds" album. I know it's old (to put it mildly) but it really is a corker. I had it donkey's years ago on vinyl then promptly forgot all about it then rediscovered it & bought the CD a year or two ago. Brilliant; some rock, some blues, some other stuff. Plus his great voice.

He's the vocalist that replaced Ian Gillan in Deep Purple, in case people don't know who he is.


Audio: MC200, G61R SL, HD621, DSP5500, 5000C, DSP3100. Subs: 2 x REL G2.
Video: JVC X70, Black Diamond Zero Edge screen 129"(2.35).
