Right now, I'm listening to a Magma show from 2002-05-04 in Wurzburg Germany. Magma makes some of the most spiritually uplifting music I've ever heard.

Before that, I listened to Kayo Dot's "Choirs of the Eye", which was recommended to me by pigs03 on the Zappa forum a couple of years ago. It still gets a lot of play, and it's really wonderfully powerful stuff.

About a year ago I decided to try out the Mars Volta. I found Frances the Mute in a used bin, picked it up, and was quite impressed. However, it's almost TOO frantic and busy for my tastes - as if they're trying to do everything at once and it just gets exhausting. Frances has a neat pace though (the album seems to take forever, which isn't a bad thing), with more long songs than you would think could fit on a CD. Supposedly it's a pretty experimental for them. I then got De-loused in the Comatorium, but have been unsuccessful so far in listening to that one. Just too much too soon. I'm saving it for when I'm more in the mood for that kind of stuff.

Bonny, re: Mr Bungle. I'm not crazy about California, and the first album really blew me away the first 20 times I first heard it but it sounds mostly annoying to me nowadays (all that carnival stuff kinda grates). Disco Volante, however, is by far my favorite and an avant-rock masterpiece.


TMV are BUSY, that's for sure. A good thing.

My personal opinion on Disco Volante is that it is my least favourite MB album. I like it alot, but compared to the other two, it comes third easily....

Mr Bungle's first does indeed tire me occasionally but I now only play it in a real festive mood. And it's GREAT music when you're juggling!

It seems that way, doesn't it? I'll have to remember that the next time I juggle.

Oh yeah! I also love to juggle to Jamiroquai... (well you got to have something to take your mind of the music). In Zappa's repertoire We Are Not Alone is fantastic, too.

Yeah that was a strange purchase... in general, when I'm looking for a song, I buy a sampler, but this time I bought the album. Little did I know that JK's music is sucky, although he's cute.

Did they not know that title was already taken by Eric Dolphy? Or is it a tribute to Eric Dolphy?

It is O.Y.N.J.O's reworking of said album.

Dolphy's album is one of my favourite albums ever. And, before you ask, Otomo's version isn't as good as the original.....

I like it very much. The singer's voice is not a problem for me, I ythink it fits the music perfectly. The music is quite complex but also quite accessible, wich is not such an easy thing to do. I'm gonna listen to De-loused in the comatorium, now.
