Erm what kind (ok, its bad to group music into different types but maybe just this time...) of dance music is it? Is it even dance music? What other bands is it comparable to? I know little about Mr. Massey as Massonix so excuse my poor knowledge... :wink:

Whatever happened to surprises? :)
Having said that, it's the first Massonix album, so nobody knows...

I am looking forward to this album. Judging by the titles of the tracks and the theme of the album i wouldnt be surprised if it was some kind of ambient soundscape. The Orb springs to mind when i saw the track listings. Graham does the Orb? nice one. I like dreamy floaty synth tracks to get lost in. Hope this album is it.

Great track names, can't wait for this, Ive a feeling diamond dance might be a stand out track. Expect the unexpected.

Yah mang,

It's been too long since I've enjoyed a true 'concept' album. Very 70s approach.

The last nautical sort of concept album I enjoyed was 'Stay Down' by the Two Lone Swordsmen.

The last classic concept album I really enjoyed was Rick Wakeman's Wives of Henry the 8th.

Looking totally foward to this one.

Chaaarrrsss!!!!

Quite possibly, but Boomkat are apparently stating that it will ship tomorrow....

I shall check at their record shop on Saturday, since I'll be up there for the Massonix/LFO/Autechre gig! 8)
