What are you listening to Part the Third

Recommended Posts

I’d actually recommend going backwards from Selling England by the Pound ...but yeah, if prog ain’t your thing, don’t force yourself.  They are pretty much prog incarnate during the PG years.  Many consider ...Lamb... to be the pinnacle of prog, and it’s as impenetrable as it gets.

Speaking of prog (bit metal). Enjoying the latest King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard -- Infest The Rat's Nest.

Nursery Cryme

So great, from the opening barn burner, “Musical Box” to the underrated closer, “Fountain of Salmacis”.

III – The Grassy Knoll

One of my favorite bands. This one is more relaxed-sounding than their first two albums. If you enjoyed some of Angelo Badalamenti's jazzier work in David Lynch's projects (Lost Highway, particularly), you might love The Grassy Knoll.

Released earlier this year. Jazz to have fun to and to enjoy, not more nor less.

Foxtrot, ...Lamb..., Selling England..., Trick..., Wind & Wuthering, and now ...and then there were three...—my first and still the most underrated.

I'm always delighted to see Selling England getting some love around here!

On a different note,..

My latest contribution to putting a strain on your auditory tolerance!

Nice. It brought images of train windows passing quickly in front of the watcher, traffic lights and light posts passing across the window of a moving vehicle. It's raining, raindrops distort lights, it's nightfall. From the window we see people dancing next to a wood fire. I find interesting that the thoughts and images it provokes are all from a distance.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your thoughts Antonio!

It's my hopes that listeners see and feel images and emotions that are unique to the individual. 

Yours are very cool!

Very relaxing. Last night he made me "disconnect" and today at work I put it on several occasions.

Sounds like......Tool.....a couple songs in, sounds good on 'phones......

EDIT: not QUITE as angst/angry as some other Tool albums, definitely a bit mellower.  Still pretty enjoyable

EDIT 2: several songs are Prog-long....6 of 7 songs over 10 minutes, one over 15.....

Very cool Steve - I really liked the multi multi layered themes, various overlaps and highlights. Some Tangerine Dream/Philip Glass moments. Well done.

I´m listening a song entitled "Fear Inoculum".

Very interesting. I will investigate a little more about this band. 👍

Thanks Mikey.

This one is pretty dense.

Just the piano parts were a bear to edit. I'm not sure how many "hands" it would take to play that part but thats a problem for another day.

Here's a snapshot of a few measures of the piano midi in Logic.
