Unfortunately, these days Mike Stock is a rightwing conspiracy nut.

Re: Musik - Cabaret and EP

You're right. I don't know the concept. I am judging the music and it sounds terrible. You are doing the equivalent of judging a comedy as a drama. It's a pointless exercise that makes you look silly. That's ridiculous. Music should be able to be judged on its own merit, especially when said music ...

Re: Today I listened to Elysium for the first time since 2012...

Sounds like you have no idea what the Edinburgh Fringe is, nor the context of the one-woman show itself. The song...

Re: Musik - Cabaret and EP

Erm... just FYI there is no such thing as 'general midi drum sounds'. General Midi only defines the name of the sound, not the actual sound itself, which could be anything. I am referring to two things: One is the rhythmic patterns, which sounds like those found on "arranger keyboards" in...

OK, I didn't even discover this until today. Shows you how much out of the loop I am. Anyway, a mini-rant coming on: The production on this is PISS-POOR. This is arguably the worst production I have heard on any "proper" release by any artist in decades. Frankly, maybe ever. And this is c...

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

Well, I think most would agree that The Forgotten Child is great, but as for the rest...not exactly classic PSB.
