yeah, like that forum is basically solely for people that actually know the band. most of the members are either former members of motw, Kayo Dot, etc.etc.

Yeah Toby told me about that in an e-mail.

Still doesn't mean that anything is discussed any better there.

its not a circle jerk of idolization, it is rather just people talking about things with Kayo Dot being an overhead.

much like this forum..

I think much like this forum as a whole but, I hold a certain amount respect for the Kayo Dot thread and certain standards on acceptable posts and not.

Whatev whatev though

Let's talk more about the album or Kayo Dot.

To think there could be anything wrong with (reasonably) intellectual discussion of the album we've all been dying to hear for months, as soon as it finally comes out, doesn't make any sense to me. Isn't it a good thing?

I don't remember any of the mp3 links, so someone else will have to post them.

I think this album is winning me over Dowsing, because the inactive parts can be a lot more captivating than the inactive parts of Dowsing. Less silence, more movement.

Not saying that the ambience is a bad thing, I love it. It's just easier to listen to more activity.

There are no inactive parts on Dowsing.

This album may not be the most accessible at first glance, but it has something that makes you want to listen to it again, similar to Tartar Lamb.

I disagree. Immortelle And Paper Caravelle and Amaranth The Peddler are mostly inactive except for their middles.

But I guess it depends on what you perceive to be inactive.

I think every bit of both of those songs is very interesting, engaging composition.

But it's not active music.
It's little spurts of sound surrounded by silence.

I'm not talking about the compositional factor. Yes, it's very good writing. I'm talking about the amount of sonic activity.

What are you listening to?
There wasn't any silence that I felt out of place. I didn't even feel that there was that much total silence at all.

All right, I guess it's wrong for me to think like this in a place full of people that listen to minimalist composers.

Just forget it.

I'm not trying to put you down, I'm just asking what you meant.
I don't think any of those pieces could be called minimalism
