Many of us, here in psynews, we are around our 30's more or less. Others are even closing to 40. And there hasn't been so long since we were in our first adult youth, the 20's, without too much concern about our age and the time's passing, no anxiety about it, only the blaze of life. Ok, we're still not aged at all, but now we are more aware of the time's running and that it affects us more and more, and that we're in a countdown to senescence. Thereupon, does depression come by?? Feelings? Thoughts? -> age 30 transition
Suns Of Arqa All Is Not Lost, But Where Is It? Liquid Sound Design Tracklist: 1. Mother Tongue 2. Sadrayama 3. Erasmus Dub 4. The Fool Ascends 5. Discordant Dawn 6. The Truth Lies Therein 7. Pablo's Lament Suns of Arqa (Michael Wadada) have been around for a very, very long time. Since the 1970s, in fact, and the goal of the music is a fusion between world beat, dub, electronic and just about everything in between to create sounds that are trippy, cerebral and experimental. All Is Not Lost, But Where Is It? is an album title dripping with Shpongle-isms. It makes sense because in the tradition of Suns of Arqa hundreds of guest musicians have been invited in to take part in these weird compositions over the past decades. This time around the legend Raja Ram makes many a contribution (as does The Orb and Youth). The result of the album, from old-schoolers like Wadada and Raja and The Orb, is very much an old-school chill and dub album. Old-school in flavor, definitely, but also a trip back to the beginnings of electronic psychedelic music where the definition of the sound was not clearly defined, where deeply interesting albums such as this were the norm and experimenting to see where something new like goa and psytrance were going were readily accepted. Where is goa and psytrance going? No one knows so why not fuck with it and see where it all leads, the mindset back then seemed to be. All Is Not Lost, But Where Is It? is an album lost in time, perhaps. We know now where goa and psytrance have gone, we know now what they mean and how they are defined. In part, the album does not work because in the here and now it does not go far enough to lend any additional meanings to any established definitions. That's not to say this is a bad album. It is a good one, it is sometimes wildly intriguing and I'll be the first to say that my heart is warmed every single time I hear Raja Ram's flute come through the deep and hazy dub. Sometimes these compositions work and sometimes they just do not seem to go anywhere at all, like it's just a jam session between old friends who are still in the planning stages of what these tracks will eventually sound like. If All Is Not Lost, But Where Is It? were more cerebral, it would be a better album. But this may be twenty years beyond its time. It's a pleasant album, it's an interesting album but it is not a wildly fascinating album. The best track here is "Pablo's Lament," a fine encore, where the musicianship comes together in a celebration of sound. It is also a track where the experimentation on the rest of the album does not make an appearance. Suns of Arqa
Guest posted a topic in Off Topichttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86f0LJ1nvJ8 Place here no more than 3 pictures of women that enchants you. Sensuous beauty you find irresistible. We 're not talking about names, occupations or status. Just female beauty and nothing else. Notice that the limitation of 3 pics stands only for a period of time no lesser than a month, afterwhich 3 new pics can be placed. Now someone might say, especially some lady among us, that in their private everyday life those women are simpler and lesser spectacular. Ok, so we may display facets and moments of divine feminine beauty in earthly states. So, lets see tastes...
