Re: Fractional Difference - Exploring FSOL song-by-song

It's been seven years since my Second Thought site went offline, and three since I accidentally buggered up the Wiki, and I have no place to document my thoughts on FSOL. Moreso, there isn't anywhere online that has a detailed, up-to-date discography of everything they've done. The best at the mome...

Re: FSOL on Wipeout 2048?

Pande is still about on Facebook, moved to Canada with his family a year or so back, I think he's still busy with the whole settling in thing. I still see Dell's name pop up occasionally on the visitors list. Craig is still about on social media, he recently relaunched his LooseLink project after a...

Re: RSD 2021 Releases

Aha, been waiting for the announcement. Yes, WHE is the latest in the re-recorded EPs. Don’t know about the tracklist but I’d imagine we’ll get at least one previously releases track - Exploded Funk or Abandoned Housing Blocks of Prypiat - alongside a bunch of new tracks. I’d be surprised if we did...

Re: FSOL - Music for Three Books / Music from Calendars

What's the third appearance of Propagate? Beside the Calendar and the Archives...(I miss something, but owning "just" the full-lenght album I MUST miss something)

Re: enrico berio mixes amorphous andogynous

the thing is, gaz says these messages of freedom from slavery to these imaginary technology overlords is what he’s trying to convey in his music. for me there’s a line and once an artist crosses it I cant enjoy their art without imagining the bullshit they talk. when I think of amorphous now I imme...

Re: enrico berio mixes amorphous andogynous

It's a very interesting question. In my view, we should try to separate the art from the artist, as long as the art is not influenced by the artist views we do not like. For example, I do not like a single thing that Gaz writes on Facebook, but his music is mainly instrumental, so it's not a problem...

Re: Forthcoming FSOL picture disc vinyl on Touched Revolutions

Oh, me too. Back then I got goosebumps and shivers and tears and utter joy from music all the time. These days it's a very rare occurrence. The 11 minute Part 1 version is my all-time favourite piece of music, and when that synth section with all the synth bubbles and all sorts comes in I do still ...

Re: Forthcoming FSOL picture disc vinyl on Touched Revolutions

About Ignition Of The Sun, for me is really too much. Also the three Zeebox and Hand-made Devices, but Ignition Of The Sun is like listening to torture sounds...everytime the record finishes I fear being brainwashed :D About the three videos you posted, well, Lifeforms is really different, is seems ...

Re: Forthcoming FSOL picture disc vinyl on Touched Revolutions

I don't know how much they've moved away from the standard album thing (as you called it, and it's a perfect description), because in any case each of these records (archives, enviroments), are album-length, include (almost) only new tracks, at least tracks that have not been issued on any official ...

Re: Forthcoming FSOL picture disc vinyl on Touched Revolutions

Ok Ross, so we agree on this: FSOL make some kind of separation between "official albums" and "all the rest". For example, the Artwork EP, the bonus tracks etc. then ended up onto "official" albums (Life In Moments), for example. Anyway, on discogs Papua New Guinea Translations, My Kingdom Re-imagin...

Re: Forthcoming FSOL picture disc vinyl on Touched Revolutions

Ok, and the same for the reworked singles? Because, for example, I remember some "bonus track" (from some Archives or Environments, I can't recall exactly) that ended up on something like Life In Moments...but it's ok, they were bonus tracks, so I did not include them. And, for Archived : Environmen...

Re: Forthcoming FSOL picture disc vinyl on Touched Revolutions

Ross,
you've really intrigued my. I seem to be pretty interested in 2019-2020 re-workings.
About calendar albums, those track haven't been reissued somewhere else, have they?
I think I'll buy them (the three reworkings and the calendars...maybe Translations, I don't know).

Re: Forthcoming FSOL picture disc vinyl on Touched Revolutions

I am against EPs for two reasons: first, they are too short (I tend to listen only to album-lenght records); second, some EP tracks then end up in albums, and I don't want "doubles". For longform singles, I don't like to listen to the same track over and over, albeit in different guises and remixes....

Re: enrico berio mixes amorphous andogynous

It's clear that AA is more a Gaz's creature than Brian's. Of course it's the opposite with a plethora of side projects. Maybe only FSOL is the only fully collaborative outfit.

Re: Forthcoming FSOL picture disc vinyl on Touched Revolutions

Hi, I don't know if somebody remembers me...I'm the fan who collects "full albums" only. I just wanted to ask if this year there has been some "full album" out...because there have been reworkings (in forms of long singles), then the AA mini-album (which is not complete, the complete album should co...
