Steven Wilson – The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories) – Drive Home

Oh dear! How come I didn’t ever write about Steven Wilson, the album “The Raven That Refused To Sind (And Other Stories)” or one of my favourite songs, Drive Home?! Simple as that: I didn’t listen to it for a long time. I’m not quite sure if it was the first progrock-album I ever got…… Continue reading Steven Wilson – The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories) – Drive Home

Devin Townsend – Deconstruction – The Mighty Masturbator

Bust it! Deconstruct it to its source! This is the motivation of the whole album – insanity (or more precisely the depiction of the insanity happening all around). The best comment on the album I read says: “The Devin Townsend Project hits the gas pedal on Deconstruction with so much power that it accidently kicks…… Continue reading Devin Townsend – Deconstruction – The Mighty Masturbator

“Happy music – sad music”

…Or as Aristotle would say, drama vs. comedy. …Or as scientists would say, mood management. I recently noticed the topic by going through my music library.

It’s been a month since the last update, but hey here we go again. I want to write about songs that mean a lot to me or that contain something I really want to talk about, so it might occur that it takes longer till I post an update. Anyways, another song by Pink Floyd…… Continue reading Pink Floyd – Meddle – Echoes

2016 and the songs of the year

Ok, so todays date is the 30st Dec 2016 and I’m pretty sure I can sum up my music-year. Although there are often days in which I discover a band or a song I haven’t heard of before I am sure I can write “…of 2016”-posts even though there is yet another day to come.…… Continue reading 2016 and the songs of the year

The Acoustic Guitar

In the last entry I presented the genre ambient, an art concentrating on its emotional message. Today this entry is about a solo instrument that carries exactly the same message – the acoustic guitar. First of all, of course there are plenty of other instruments that can express emotions. Violins are good for tragic moments…… Continue reading The Acoustic Guitar

Ambient Music, Shoegaze and Postrock

Ok, so there are big parts of my music life to date that consist of (progressive) rock. It contains a lot of difficult patterns, discerningly lyrics… basically it’s complex stuff (at least most of the stuff I listen to). There is always some kind of equalisation, not only in things like taste but in general.…… Continue reading Ambient Music, Shoegaze and Postrock
