“The Court”, Peter Gabriel’s second track from i/o is out. “Party Man” vibes, anyone? https://youtu.be/jKY_J3h2wJQ Feb 5, 2023 at 4:32 PM

        Oh yeah, I saw the moon and kept meaning to check and see if there was a new PG song out. :D

      Listening to the pre-remastered version of Phil Collin’s “Take me home” through a Meridian Explorer2 and PS500e. Flashbacks.

      The third Panopticom mix from Peter Gabriel is out. It’s the “In-Side” mix (Dolby Atmos). http://shorturl.at/cmvW3

        I listen to Atmos thingies very rarely, and through AirPods Max. I can’t comment intelligently. Light-Side Mix is where it’s at for me for this track.

        If it ends up doing whatever group therapy is supposed to do, then some good will come out of it. (I said, "if.")

        Oh, not all legends are bad. But this is likely going to be hall of fame, required reading, “remember the ETA thread” type of thing.

      RIP David Crosby. Listening to Déjà Vu. I hope you're getting laid wherever you are.

        It seems that, out of that bunch, at least Stills and Crosby were extremely imperfect human beings. Yet, not only is their music magnificent, but their lyrics have often resonated with me.

        I guess it isn't necessary to be a saint to write good stuff.

        The Dark Side mix is where it’s at. More Gabrielesque.

        I actually think that the full moon releases are really neat and a great way to build anticipation. The blue moon would be a fitting conclusion. And it looks like the single releases might be unique mixes, so the album mixes will still be a surprise when they arrive.

        I have to say, just like when “The Barry Williams Show” came out to promote “Up”, it took a few spins to get into the song. It’s pretty layered and moody (but in an opposite mood from “Up”).

        I really like the new song. It’s haunting and moody, but there’s a hopefulness that runs throughout. The trio of Levin, Rhodes, and Katché really propel the song forward. I get goosebumps when the band kicks in and PG sings, “And we pour the medicine down.”

      OK. Took me a while to appreciate the “Animals” 2018 Remix for what it is: a re-work of Pink Floyd’s only punk album to prog it up. Discuss.

        Hyperbolically speaking, of course ]:-)

        Apparently the band had just built up their own studio (Britannia Row) and while they had good gear, it was nowhere nearly well taken care of as EMI’s gear (Abbey Road). so that gritty, compressed-ish mix was not as intentional as one would think. I think we can easily agree the sound quality stands out compared to, say, Wish You Were Here and The Wall.

        The Master has been giving the same story since Up came out. That was a little over 20 years ago.

        Yeah but he hasn't been so vocal so frequently about an album release being so imminent.
