uroborosfault Very easy listening for an experimental/avant-garde album. I recommend checking this out especially if you're a fan of artists like David Sylvian (Secrets of the Beehive). Favorite track: Smoke-Scented Mycelium.

Ambling Falchion simply gorgeous, as expected. gripped me from the start and is now one of my all-time favorite records. Favorite track: 470 Nanometers.

Drifting like a smooth walking jaguar. And the drums - I love those authentic snare & cymbals sounding as if they'd stand in your living room. Brendan Perry from Dead can Dance has got this impact fooling around with the battery pannings at his productions - Wonderful! And again, happy to listen this soon at the beach of life! Thanks Toby Driver.
