Awrighty Joss! Is it out in the shops yet? I'm looking forward to being sonically pummeled? by Like Herod! :band:

It's 9.99 in One-Up. Dunno about anywhere else...

Like Herod is a complete beast on it. Helicon 2 is lovely as well... May even prefer it to Helicon 1!

Just ordered my copy on-line.... a bargain-tastic 7.75 including postage!

I love the internet & it's cheap CDs.

amazon.co.uk?

i find loads of bargains there at similar low prices that don't end in ".99"

I'm sure that it must have been intentional. They could have at least made it smell like old man ala john peel!!!!!

The album is as good as i expected, "Stop Coming to my House" and "New Paths to Helicon pt1" are the highlights

Also bought the new Tori Amos album yesterday, so away to give that a first listen. lovely

Surely most post rock is emotional? Its just that bands express their feelings in the form of noise / geetar solos / samples et al

Stuart - been buying a keyboard from a dodgy prog rock fan in a supermarket carpark?

Mogwai emotionless? you must be insane.

it's subtle music. it's not meant to slap you in the face with emotion!

Git.

The album brings a tear to my eye! It's the soundtrack for my journey to the land of nod.

It is by far and away the release of the year. And it may well remain my favourite release of the year for quite some time.

Stop Coming To My House is the most perfect composition I have ever heard.
