"Concerning the spelling "errors", well, dear language teachers, my laptop/keybord does not have Icelandic characters,"

All modern operating systems have utilities such as "Character Map" that allow you to use other characters, this is how the rest of ... See full review
posted a review of Joe Ericson - Take Your Time (Special 12" Mix). over 7 years ago
The original version of this single was recorded in 1980 and released in 1981 on the album Tass under the artist name Jóhann Helgason and as a single in Sweden, that version is considered something of a new romantic/minimal wave/early synth-pop mini ... See full review
posted a review of Bruce Springsteen - The River. over 7 years ago
Seminal 1980 double album from the USA rocker, the song-writing quality is quite good although as with most double albums there are a few fillers in between, but the texts on this album are some of Mr. Springsteen's more understated. The recording ... See full review

Bull, it's been there for a year with BASIC spelling errors and misunderstandings besides a number of people had made corrections on this release before I did, do you intend to complain personally to them all? And I do not only have a copy of this albeit ... See full review

"Goth", "New Wave", erm, this is the first band that officially called themselves New Romantics, as far from Goth as you can get, as for "being a driving vehicle for their bizzare frontman" this band used to be called X-Ray Spex but auditioned for a ... See full review

Telstar has very little electronic instrumentation, Popcorn has a little more but by no means all - electronic, Dr.Who was not done by electronic means they used tape manipulation. Kraftwerk was all electronic after autobahn.

This collection of excerpts from Eddukvæði by the late Sveinbjörn Beinteinsson is probably the best introduction to Icelandic poetic chanting you can get, the sound of Sveinbjörn's chanting is much closer to the original than most of his contemporaries ... See full review

With Nelsons 1980's and 90's work you got either vocal/pop albums or experimental/ambient works with his more recent work you cannot always make such an easy distinction. This album is a case in point, it is non-vocal and at times very "ambient" but also ... See full review
posted a review of Yukihiro Takahashi - Neuromantic. over 7 years ago
Recoded in a similar timeframe as YMO's "BGM" album and shares with it a similar sound for a lack of a better word, but Yuki's solo effort is more poppy and relaxed than BGM and reminds you in part of the early New Romantic releases from bands like Japan ... See full review
posted a review of Steindór Andersen - Rímur. over 7 years ago
Rímur is a simplified form of chanted Icelandic poetry, the older form of "kvæði" uses heavily structured phonetic rules but the more accessible form of rímur was introduced in the 9th century and uses simplified metre and adds rhyme to the mix, the name ... See full review
