I hate that generic F242 cover :-(

Yeah, that cover makes the music look unappealing, which it's certainly not.

You know how they say it takes 20-30 years for nostalgia of certain times to bloom, so in the 80s there was a 50s boom, in the 90s it was the 60s, nowadays there's tonnes of 80s, and the 90s are starting to creep in? I've been feeling this wave entirely on my own for the last few months, constantly finding myself returning to a certain time of my life with regards to electronic music and video games. I've been listening to tonnes of FSOL, Leftfield, Underworld, that sort of thing; I've been somewhat obsessed with Rez Infinite, Tetris Effect, and the Wipeout Omega Collection, and I've been rewatching the Adam & Joe Show, Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends and seasons 1-10 of The Simpsons. It took me a while to notice what I was doing but now Fish's thread about 1996 singles just triggered it again and really confirmed it.

Current 93 - The Light is Leaving us All

First proper listen, having bought it yesterday in that London, on white vinyl.

Pretty much like you said. It might well be the best C93 album in some time, it feels like their most coherent, solid work in ages. And might just be missing an absolute killer track or two to lift it into the top echelons of their back-catalogue. I reckon I'll give it plenty time to sink in, and see how I feel about it in a couple of months. Not sure I have any idea what Tibet is singing about anymore. Wonder if he does?

Another purchase from that London. I've never even seen a copy of this before, so despite knowing it's not as good as the follow-up, Disease, it kind of had to be purchased.

I can agree with that. Maybe the absolute killer tracks will reveal themselves with repeated listenings but everything on it is pretty damn good.

Everyone always says “Rhubarb” (disc 1, track 3) is the best. I love it but I'd put “Blue Calx” (track 1, disc 2) as the finest moment from this.

This is like the Tago Mago of avant-metal. The first disc is full of noisy improvs mixed in with some heavy grooves, while the second disc goes into infernal ritualistic ambient pieces. A strange combination, but it works quite well and it's the best I've heard from PainKiller.
