Hard Normal Daddy is the best TJ album ... 🙂

If you turn it off after track 3. 😁

 

Edit: Okay, "Vic Acid" and "Rebus" are alright as well. But inbetween that ... 🤔

Papalon is the best track on the entirety of the album

The only track I like on that album is "Iambic 5 Poetry". 😕

I guess I just don't like "jazzy" SP. Which is a lot of SP.

That's from a different EP for a start... Maybe give 'My Sound' another go?

On the topic of other SP albums I gave Damogen another go. There's a couple of decent tracks on there but goddamn there's some real shockers too. Not keen on the production choices either.

Good news is that after the new one I can harvest enough tracks from the last 4 LPs to make one pretty decent comp I reckon.

Lol, sorry, that's what I meant! Yeah, "My Sound" off Music ... and "Iambic 5 Poetry" off Budakhan ... I always mix those two up, and I like them the least. From Selection 16 on, things are looking up a bit again AFAIC.

Browsing through the latter part of this thread, kinda crazy to think on just how many (arguably) good albums he's put out. Go Plastic def 10/10 for me and like Braintree said DYKS for title track alone, tho also have special love for F-train too. Lots of nostalgia for those releases. Then I start thinking about other albums and I'm like, yeah, Ultravisitor has some killer tracks (Tetra Sync is fucking amazeballs . .. when it drops out of the "live" performance into the chopped beat? jaw drop moment first time I heard it; also love the the classical guitar tracks), oh wait can't forget about Bid Loada (ffs Come on My Selectaaaaaa is on there), then HND, music is rotted, even Selection 16 . . .

Anyway, guess what I'm saying is I'm grateful at the embarassment of riches that is the []< catalogue. Even recent releases I'm mostly come around to (took me several years w/ Damogen, but re listened to it recently and started to enjoy it for just a "fun" album). This one probably the most immediate and direct connection I've felt in a decade, which is exciting. . . Glad he's still putting music out.

btw I sorta wish their were soem vocal elements in the album.... even the odd "sqquuareepppusssherr" or "facking dadddy" would be good

the sprinklings he does have in his catalog are special

The bass on Oberlove is so lush, and the track is just all around sublime and full of joy.  Probably my favorite tj track since tetra sync or other stuff around that era.

Can anyone with synth knowledge identify which aspects of the track are coming from an Oberheim?

Part of me thinks this whole album was made on computer.

Nothing wrong with making things on a computer. As long as it sounds good, that's all that matters.

this album is great. the previous 2 albums seem like a step sideways before a step forward could happen. i do hope for some unreleased tracks dump at some point though.. like maybe some kind of open the vaults compilation to add to his retirement account or something. i'd buy in. 

 

btw this doesn't sound like computer to me. sounds like the QY for sequencing.. that tracker style of shuffling around lists of numbers. undeniable there's lot's of 101 and 303 on this.. even if it's sampled into the S6000 or whatever.. all that beat gymnastics sound so tight. transients all good etc.

Hey ... wait ... Oberlove sounds a *lot* better on vinyl than it does on Spotify ... quite good, in fact ...

Weird

Good music sounds good on garbage equipment.

People used to swoon to Wagner operas played on shellac records.

I most certainly didn’t swoon to Spotify Oberlove.

Spotify Terminal Slam, on the other hand, was quite ok. :shrug:
