I have three Eivind Aarset albums but not this. So far much more mellow, it's much more ambient/ethereal than those. Should have a typo on it saying Now That's What I Call Chill Out Music.

Now that Tull have been touched by the genius of Steven Wilson I thought I’d give these another listen myself.... :D

Kath and I just started in on this. A wonderful album.



Yeah, Ive been really enjoying getting back into it, Flying Dutchman is one of their very best I do believe, Something on the Move, Dun Ringill - great stuff. There are some great live boots from the 79 tour as well.

Arena - The Visitor

A classic neo prog album with a heavier sound than one might normally associate with the genre. Lots of repeating themes that come and go, excellent guitar from John Mitchell (Kino, Frost* and others), keys from Clive Nolan (Pendragon)....

I briefly owned this. I picked it up very cheap in a sale a few years ago but didn't like it so sold it on. I may even have made a profit.

A classic collaboration between the maverick art-rocker and the left-field composer.

A fabulous 3 CD box set covering the late 60s, early 79s heavy rock scene.

Is that just Jan ‘79 or does it go as far as February? ;)

Never a big fan, they were okay which is about the best I can say about them, sorry C. Went to one of their gigs once, think I lasted at the most half an hour.
