In an act of extraordinary generosity and faith, our dear Mr. Mutant has invited me to contribute to this blog and I am deeply thrilled and honored to take part. Given that our host's musical sensibility and mine are nearly indistinguishable, the aesthetic thrust of this blog will remain almost exactly the same, the only difference being an increase in the scale of this undertaking. For those of you understandably feeling dumbstruck and overwhelmed by what has transpired up to this point, I can only offer my sympathetic apologies in advance, as the proliferation here will ultimately be ramping up to near delirious levels over time. I'd ended my Archaia review (which was reposted on this blog by Mr. Mutant) by saying that "Too much of a good thing is always a good thing". Gluttonous orgiastic excess and the inconceivability of ever coming to grips with vast quantities of information-these are the natural and inevitable upshots of deeply immersing oneself in this musical milieu, so just take a deep breath and resign yourself to the happiest informational whiteout you could even hope for. My first two album postings will follow shortly...
