  1. Looking to purchase this on CD after rediscovering the wonderful An Ending (Ascent) recently, but noticed that there are several versions to choose from. Anybody know if there's much to choose between the original and the various remasters? https://www.discogs.com/Brian-Eno-With-Daniel-Lanois-Roger-Eno-Apollo-Atmospheres-Soundtracks/master/6531

    Would somebody care to list a few Synthwave and Vaporwave artists so I know what’s what.

    Best New Music of 2018

    Cory Henry is somebody I need to check out ASAP. His solo on the Moog after the track breaks at 9m30s is bonkers.

    Best New Music of 2018

    First impressions on this new LP from Steven Legget are good. It's ambient electronic/modern classical. http://firecrackerrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/firec024lp-bathhouse

    The House Music Thread

    Both of those were staples of my DJ sets at the time. I’ve since discovered that Acid Tricks was heavily influenced by Jack Frost’s Clap Me.

    That's fair. But should a classic album need context or should the music itself hold up on its own merit? In that regard, I am in a similar position to that young intern that wasn't feeling Public Enemy's 'classic album' in the Guardian article that Mad Cyril posted. I'm just stirring though - there is no set definition for a classic album. Music is all a matter of opinion anyway.

    My mate lent it to me for my first listen in the last year or so (I’m 36). I wasn’t fussed on it.

    My Albums of the 21st Century

    I appreciate you doing this and look forward to further recommendations. I doubt I'll have time to post links and detailed descriptions like you have, but I can certainly list a few choice albums from each year. 2000: Air - The Virgin Suicides - mellow, moody instrumentals (mostly) Bebel Gilberto - Tanto Tempo - Brazilian easy listening Common - Like Water For Chocolate - I started with 'Be' but this quickly became my favourite Common album i-F - Mixed Up In The Hague Vol.1 - a DJ mix of the highest order, bridging the gap from 80s electro and italo-disco to their modern equivalents Jeff Mills - Metropolis - a haunting soundtrack to the old silent movie St.Germain - Tourist - jazz flavoured house and downtempo grooves

    I've been mulling over these kind of comments this week, and seeing as somebody has actually started a 'best albums of the 21st century' thread, I really wanted to ask people to try and put their finger on what exactly defines a 'classic album'. Is it just 10 great songs in a row? Is it about the musical impact it has - pushing new boundaries etc. Is it in any way related to sales or critical reception? Can an album even be considered 'classic' upon release, or does it need a few years to sink in and be fully appreciated? Also, what is pop music these days? Does the term still mean simply 'popular music'? For me, no. I consider anything with a verse/chorus structure and a melodic, reasonably un-challenging style to be pop music. I listen to plenty of music which fits that criteria. Hardly any of it is mainstream Top 40 pop.

    The electronica thread

    Recently found this 12" now available digitally. Starkid delivers 3 acid bangers and one deeper cut. Cancerdog's tracks are less frantic but just as good. https://shop.hott.mx/album/panzerkreuz-1012-untitled

    All hail the synth!

    Some nice (and some terrible) tracks on this French library music album from 1978. A couple of pieces have an almost RPG soundtrack vibe to them, before such a thing even existed!
