  1. Please don’t kill me - I think Metamorphosis is actually one of his best albums. Amazing attention to detail, production, sound design and feel (though don’t love all the vocals.) 😶 But nothing is as wondrous as Zoolook. His new stuff (the new Equinox and Oxygene) is okay...a bit straight and EDM in places for me. I can’t help it, I want some wonky stuff to happen like the beautiful sliding notes in the second half of Chronologie 1.
  2. I like his new album it is good. But too many white notes and it is clipping. what think?
  3. In the future it will be more common for cisgender males to have babies. Maybe this could be part of Rob and Sean’s plans?

    Rob pls

    Is it time yet? There hasn’t been enough. Let’s tread carefully; Rob has his ways.
  5. Lianne

    Sean pls

    Sean is a beautiful person
  6. Forgive the stupid question... Which chat room did Sean write that in? Is there a WATMM chat room?! (I usually go on here on phone.)
  7. I think it’s my favourite along with Mekrev Bass!
  8. I agree this one is miles better than the last two - it feels so good to crank it loud as well, which didn’t feel so great to do on the previous recent works - but sometimes when in the right mood Damogen did do something for me. It has some aspects of magic on it even if listening was often a struggle. But man, just heard Ufabulum again and it’s a even worse then I remembered (because I tried to make myself like or “get it” at the time.) The opener is pretty great for a few minutes, but then that EDM thing happens. I’m sure an uplifting chordal bright synth riff could work - I’ve heard it work - but for some reason it just sounded so cheap and cheesy and weak on this album. Surrounded by weirdly still-good rhythmic programming in places. I like bright synth fantasy wizard electronic dance music in principle but my ears couldn’t hack that album. Then again, it seems super popular - the opener alone has a mass of adoring comments. So evidently it worked at bringing a lot of fans in and works for many. But the new release is so much more solid sounding with top-notch control, madness, tension and release.
  9. Well, I think this album is pretty fantastic...Mekrev Bass in particular is a monster - but all the tracks are enjoyable - even the first two (though the second track is the least captivating on the disc for me.) For whatever reason it somehow seems to sound both warmer and easier on the ears AND more manic and dense than his recent albums leading up to this one. I like the intensity and craziness of it - so many others seem to be going for a more minimal, subtle, less-is-more thing, but this is a welcome bout of info overload at times. It’s pretty inspiring to see someone of his age and place I releasing music putting out something so strong and vital. It’s definitely my favourite of his since ‘Hello Everything’ - maybe even Ultravisitor.
  10. Sounds so great - thanks for sharing! Did you wear ear plugs? Bet it was super loud at the front...
  11. I’m not sure why you didn’t get more agreement here about the mixing / mastering thing - any musician I know who listens to this kind of music has been extremely confused by Tom’s mixing and mastering from ‘Hello Everything’ onwards. And I’ve often heard ‘Go Plastic’ described as a really great sounding record and worth referencing against by the same people. It’s like they don’t know what happened to him. For what it’s worth, that’s how I’ve heard things (even though ‘Hello Everything’ was pretty great and got away with it.) The next few, especially Ufabulum and Shobaleader One, apart from the sounds themselves being pretty naff, seem to have an “overall sound” that’s just fatiguing, limp, harsh and somehow weak all at the same time when played against pretty much any other record I own, even if I don’t particularly like those records. So it’s not just the music - it seems to be the mixing and mastering. Because I know that if shobaleader one sounded really warm and heavy (like some hip hop or soul I own) I would have actually enjoyed the melodies and vocoder workouts. I don’t mind music like that sometimes and get Tom wants to have fun. Even Ufabulum, though I find some of it too EDM, could have been kind of killer in places if they overall “sound” wasn’t so fizzy and weirdly unsatisfying.
  12. I love this track. And Quaristice. Can’t believe the rubbish I wrote earlier in this thread...how embarrassing.
  13. They definitely used elastic band recordings on Cfern.
  14. Yeah, it is growing on me. 😄 Very predictably... The first half of Polymer is such a great sequence of tracks - up to an including 'Dancer's. The second half almost feels like it's pursuing a different theme altogether, more in line with The Digging Remedy. I did enjoy that album, but the first half of this feels like it's hitting on a harder synthetic zone. I wonder what it would have been like to have stayed in that place till the end?
