Yes, I know… Another review of an old Porcupine Tree album, but I just couldn’t resist! Released back in the year 1999, the album that came out three years later after my favourite album Signify.
This is a tough album to review. Not because it’s not my taste or that it isn’t good, but this is an album that demands your full attention and needs quite a few spins. There’s a lot happening in the music, even though most of the music is mostly on the calm and serene side.
Grappling is the fourth studio album made by American band The Tea Club. I never heard their previous albums, and the album sleeve left me guessing what kind of music it might be. The artwork looks simple but is somehow an eye catcher. When you fold out the lyric sheet that’s in the album sleeve you get to see a complete artwork on the back of it. Very beautifully done!
What, another personal playlist already? Yes, another one, because there’s so much great music to share with you guys!
Yes, why not? I listen to a lot of new music, old music, weird music… Any kind of music! I discover a lot of new music thanks to the albums I get from Background Magazine/artists & bands to review, but sometimes I make time to explore both new and old music by myself. Here’s a selection of what I’m listening to recently…
Earth And All The Universes is the fourth studio album by multi-instrumentalist Marvin B. Naylor. All songs are written, played, and produced by Marvin. He plays a variety of stringed instruments, piano, Theremin and also sings on most tracks, a real multitalented guy. Some percussion and additional production is done by Gary J. Brady.
