Really!!?

Why not? From start to finish it's pretty much an unrestrained, uncontrollable rage of emotion. With nice synths, lovely guitars, and incoherent vocals.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

One of my favourite albums throughout the 80's... along with Caught In Flux. I still adore their misery. And still some of my alltime favourite tracks... No Noise from this album, Invisibility, Kodak Ghosts Run Amok, The Feelings Mutual...

Blimey, I don't think I've ever encountered a positive opinion on this site about an album I dearly love. I automatically replied in the defensive, expecting cynicism. Some of their recent stuff isn't that shabby, either. Not in the same league or style, but quite distinctive and well worth a listen.

Eyeless in Gaza are great. I'm listening to them just now - they get better with every year that passes.

I'm gonna have to revisit them this week and maybe check out some of their later stuff. I had everything pretty much up to Rust Red September which is where I left them. Sadly I gave all my vinyl away over a decade ago but I think I gave some of my EiG LPs to my son.

NP - I've had Scale Amiss stuck in my head all day too!!!

Bloody hell, they're more popular than The Beatles around here.

Yeah... too commercial.

(They never bothered the hit parade, did they? Welcome Now is pop perfection though.)

These kinds of lists are hard to make because they always change on a daily or even hourly basis but right now, at this very moment, this is what I want. Ask me tomorrow and it'll be different.

Coil - The Ape of Naples
Yellow Swans - Going Places
The KLF - Chill Out
The Future Sound of London - Dead Cities
Aphex Twin - …I Care Because You Do
Current 93 - Thunder Perfect Mind
Nico - The Marble Index
The Residents - Eskimo
Autechre - Amber
Robert Rich & B. Lustmord - Stalker

Agree! Came to the same conclusion when I started the thread...

My list is at last in part a seasonal one. I'm driving to and from work partly in daylight and (current cold snap aside) there are the first intimations of spring. If the thread had been started 2 or 3 weeks ago...

I don’t feel that. My top 20 or so albums has been the same for years. Sometimes I might pick a different record by the same band (Roxy) but a lot of it hasn’t changed since my mid 20s

Some people don't set themselves high standards, they're easily impressed.
