Let's see then... :) 


finally got around to listening to this, a few good tracks like Eerie Nothingness and Beyond Our Dreams but overall it's not quite as good as Back To Earth imo. what'd you think of it?

It was a rather superficial listen but yes, it's not as awesome as BtE, but that's incredibly hard to top imo. However it usually takes a good few listens before I fully appreciate an ES album, sometimes many. I did enjoy it though. And Merv's music can often be appreciated more in catalysed consciousness.

 

Are you familiar with Nodes Ictus timeisart (feels weird to call you that I must say :P )? Merv hasn't always been a part of them, but when he has the results are usually stunning.

I've heard the Spacelines album but it's been a while, I recall it being very Ozrics-ish but more chill.. will have to give it a re-listen sometime.

and my name's Gordon if you must know ;)

Yeah, Gordon seems much more natural. :)

 

There are some digital-only Nodens releases, all of them live, and Merv is on some of them. You can spot them by the extra bounciness and/or madness. Some great stuff among the lot. There are also some bootlegs with more Mervness on them but less than great sound.

 

I also like the Hi-Fi Companions album he did with Steve Jolliffe, loungey but very classy.

After a few more listens it's starting to make more sense. I like all the tracks but in typical Merv fashion he doesn't walk previously trodden paths - apart from the madness factor. Overall it's less accessible than BtE, less catchy, but imo more psychedelic. I still enjoy BtE more than any other Eat Static album, so anything of that magnitude would have been a huge surprise. What I love about Merv's music is that although it's very often on the verge of total chaos, it's rarely without some sort of melody.

 

Has your view on it changed at all?

Absolutely agree with this. Only given it two listens now but it definitely grew on me more the second time around. I think before the first listen I had once again hyped myself up too much after hearing the (imo amazing) Oneiroi bonus track they released before the full album came out, which I thought was a very accessible track that made the album seem very weirdly psychedelic in comparison.

But the beauty of psychedelic music is that your perception of it can vary greatly depending on your mood and mindset that you bring into the listening session. So once I had let go of the expectations I had on the first listen it seemed to flow better the 2nd time around.

Missed this when it came out but I'm loving it now, a bit strange and quite hypnotic.

A bit marginal, as there are some rock tracks on it, but most of it is many-layers-underground downtempo from '87. Funny thing is it's not feasible to release this on CD as it's 85 minutes long - originally on tape only.

Listening to a very nice ambient EP from a Finnish chill-out act HuuHaa.

Catching up with missed releases; I'm listening to this. I'm about half way through and so far I've enjoyed every tune. Sounds like an excellent compilation.
