I'm just being a little tonged-in-cheek. But, I remember reading a glowing review in Pitchfork and hearing about them either on NPR music or my Rhapsody recommended new releases. It just seemed there was a lot of buzz on the blogosphere when it was first released and I finally figured I should give them a listen. They're much more avant garde or experimental than I first realized. It was definitely a grower. Now I think they're really cool. Pretty out there-but totally captivating....

 

it's a long album so you got to give it some time-kind of like Swans recent double albums....several hours that beg to be listened as one experience. Problem is-in our culture I'm not sure most people are willing to listen to music in that way. Do people really have the time to sit down and listen to one extended 2-3 hour piece? Either way-the individual tracks hold up for me, also-but feel "weightier" taken as a whole musical movement.

 

Just my opinion:smile_phones:

yes, you are right about people not having time or taking time to listen properly. But, I would hope that most people on here are the kind that spend lots of time and take into consideration; the artist's intention while listening. 

 

Have you heard "silent shout" or "deep cut's" they are also very good especially "silent shout". ¬

... if you don't know it yet, check it out especially the enhancement between approx. 2:00 and 3:15... one of my favorites since my teenage years in the 1980s.

And play it loud enough to get beamed up!!!

Ayreon - Side Effects

 

I like this record, a good mix between electric and acoustic instruments, a great rock opera.

The mastering is so good compared to the other toots albums I have. They managed to clear all the dirt off the recording. :D
