    VA - Air

    Mostly agree with Klas. I would probably give lower scores to some tracks. The album is very uneven. First track is pretty bad, never heard a more irritating flute. Second track is fantastic and my favourite on the album. Next we go down again and so on. It's a bunch of ups and downs but none of the ups reach too far up It's hard to listen to this CD in one sitting so I normally just listen to a few select songs when I feel like a song or two. Based on this album I won't be getting the next installment.
  2. Just listened to a bit of the record on myspace, it is fantastic! It beats most 'minimal' done by psy-prog producers. Forget the genre, this is just good music.
  3. Entheogenic - Flight of the Urubus I was waiting for this album for such a long time and I bought the pre-order limited edible one as soon as it was available. I thought it was a terrible album, there was nothing in there to keep me coming back after a few listens. I should have known that all that eco/edible/blahblah nonsense in press release was indicative of music inside.

    Entheogenic - Entheogenic

    The best chill album of all times, nothing compares.
  5. I really like the parts with music/melody. Don't get the 'noise' parts at all, I probably wouldn't buy this album just judging by first 5 minutes. I'll give it another spin, so far not enough 'musicality' for me. This does have potential, I do like the dnb/goaish mix.
  6. Well so far none of the stuff mentioned here is actually ambient unless I missed Steve Roach and Brian Eno recommendations This topic seems to be more about more generic chill stuff and Pitch Black fits perfectly. It's dubby but I wouldn't really call it dub because dub beat is not overused.
  7. FINALLY! Something that didn't bore me to tears - Pitch Black - Rude Mechanicals, only listened to it once so far but I loved it, going to spin it again, this is great. Been going through all my chill albums lately and still couldn't find anything really good this year, a track here a track there but not one whole album. Nice one Pitch Black!
  8. That kind of goes against everything you said before. If you didn't care then you wouldn't care about 'sounding like someone' if you like how that someone sounds.
  9. You will pretty much never have the same exact result in the end. That would actually be an incredible feat to copy a good electronic album completely. Unlike for example rock music which you can pretty much copy 99% if you have a good ear in electronic music it's not as easy. Well then go listen to jazz, metal, polka, techno, dance, etc They are VERY different from each other and if you say you can handle it then there is a ton of different things out there. If you want psytrance then you kind of just limited yourself and want something that's not really possible. Once again, originality within a mature genre is called a new genre.
  10. You are all such fcking assholes. My style is better than your nyanyanya. Grow up. Don't like dark? Don't listen to it, don't like prog don't listen to it. Goa Gil is trying to convey something in his covers, same as Symphonix, just because you don't get it doesn't mean there is anything wrong with it. Both covers are perfect for what they are. Sadhu (naked man) = gay to you? You have issues...and not the last one of them might be latent homosexuality. High heels = gay? I don't even need to explain this one... Once again idiotic elitist tendencies strike. Everyone who is no-one needs to validate themselves by pretending that they are in some way superior to others. Get over yourself, enjoy music, learn that tastes change, today you trash dark/prog/psy/polka/whatever and tomorrow you might be the biggest fan. Learn to accept others, you don't have to like it but stop pretending that you have this exquisite taste and everyone else sucks. Life will hit you over the head pretty hard once you finally realize a few things. I've never seen goa gil play, I don't really like dark at all but even I can see that it's infinitely more psychedelic than most prog stuff that I so love. There is good music everywhere, it's sad that people can't see it because they have some hangup which has nothing to do with music itself. Give it another decade of music listening and maybe by then you will understand how absurd threads like these really are.
  11. Why? If I buy an album and I love it I don't want only one artist to be able to write that kind of music, that would actually really suck. We have genres for a reason. If I like a genre I don't want some strange experimental stuff that might not even fit within the genre of music, yes it's original but why does that matter? As long as it's not a complete ripoff of melodies and music I have no problem with people using all the same tools to create similar sound. In fact if the musician is good we can get stuff even better than original this way. It's like the first band giving you special clay and you get to shape it, your creation might be vastly different in the end but the clay is still the same. People have originality craze but you have got to understand that if all music was original your head would explode and you would have about 5 albums that you actually enjoyed. I understand that there are many people who use the same exact everything (including music, not just tools) and that gets tiring. I am not talking about them. When I first picked up a guitar I pretty much had an idea what sound I wanted and it wasn't some original sound, it was obviously the sound of the bands that I liked. That doesn't mean I am unoriginal it just means that I picked up the guitar in the first place because of those bands. Originality is not all it's cracked up to be.
  12. ^ that album is awesome! CBL - MOS 6581 from Fahrenheit 3

  14. I love Stress Assassin but don't really know anything about him. Hope he comes back with another release.
  15. It seems like I've heard it all before but I love the samples. I will probably be buying this.
