    I like it, probably my fav LP of theirs although IMHO they have some EP's that are better.

    AIC unplugged is an all time favorite.

    My 5:
    The Beatles (BBC sessions just came out, was an Xmas present)
    Dave Brubeck quartet (Time Out, time further out)
    Tool (mostly 10,000 days)
    Sting (live CDs - live in Berlin with the symphonique is great, but also the older Bring On The Night for more jazzy jams)
    Ron Spielman Trio - pretty solid German, not well known over hear but monster guitar player and not a bad voice.
    Yeah, I love Sarah! I don't know if you've heard her new cd, but it's a bit less bluegrass, more folk-ish. But the result is a really good album.

    I'll have to check out some of the live Sting stuff. I haven't listened to any of his stuff in awhile, but I was really into his early solo career.

    I too enjoyed it, but when compared to "Geogaddi" and especially "Campfire Headphase" I think it does fall a little short. I've honestly never listened to their EP's, which is something I should probably address...

    Love the new Duncan CD, Legerdemain! His music is always so consistently good, and nobody else really sounds like him.

    Ehhh it was very white-limousine-ish to me the first listen through, so i backed off for a day or so. Some good stuff on there, but a lot of electronica and pseudo-pop. Its good when it's in the background like Photograph, and sometimes when its just a layer on top of strong vocals like Circling it is okay, but something like Birmingham just falls flat for me. Still with 18 tracks, I can at least get a decent albums worth out of it either way

    Have you listened to 'covers '80s' of his? That was another let down. Stripped down versions of some 80s tunes, some were kind of wussified.

    But then I dug the Whisper House stuff, especially Earthbound Starlight, very atmospheric and beautiful. And then he had a single, Lay Down Your Weapons, which was pretty good…not sure why that wasn't on this album.

    I've got everything he's ever done, from the Brighter/Later to the acoustic 5-song EP from france, "At The Reservoir". Definitely one of the guys I could listen to all day. Hearing him push his voice and hit some crisp high notes on Legerdemain is very welcome and makes me happy.

    At the moment: Xasthur, a one-man depressive black metal artist with a love for droning atonality.

    -The Sisters of Mercy: (Classic UK goth)
    -The Rolling Stones: (Brvtal Kvlt Pornogrind from Mumbai)
    -Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young: ( '80s Iranian Klezmer featuring several former Butthole Surfers)
    -Radiohead: (Music for milking cattle)
    -Death in June: (Literally a gay (accused) Nazi, bless his confused soul)
