    I'll give it a try, later. But it's pretty good. Psychedelic, reasonably heavy. Sometimes a bit like CSNY/Pink Floyd(?). Sometimes a bit LTEC. There's strings and female vocals on it. But I'm terrible at describing music.

    I second that, TraktorBass! Close Yr Eyes: Hmm. I think they should have hired Paul McCartney to sing on this one, that would have been just right.

    Oao, this is looking really promising! Sounds like Heavy Metal Fruit is going to be more produced and arranged than the last two albums. I'm very exited about this!

    agree, seems to be produced much better than the recent stuff. especially the vocals
    it's just one second, but did i spot some moog taurus on starhammer?

    Close Your Eyes is quite short, and produced KÃ¥re Chr Vestrheim, according to the sleeve. It's a promotional copy, no more info than that.
    No leak guys, I can't do that as you can understand.

    The actual cd sounds much better than on http://www.jpc.de by the way.

    Ok, maybe later. Gotta sleep now. But as I said: I really suck at describing music. Have a listen at that german site, even though it's 30 seconds of each song...

    Sounds great, Kenneth is the man!
    W.B.A.T. contains some excellent drumming!

    It's a good sign when I keep returning to 20 sec. soundclips. This sounds veeeeeery promising.

    Is this truly the second spring of Motorpsycho? I never thought they'd get to their '94-'98 peak again, but the last few years has seen them going back underground, in a sense, and in the process they're evolving into a new band with a new lease on life. It's almost like two parallell runs...first with Geb, now with Kenneth. The string of albums starting with BHBC now looks better and better...

    This album is really starting to grow on me. It's not an epic masterpiece like Blissard or Trust Us or AADAP, but it's very very good, yes. Hooray for that! Starhammer has a long, slowly built up impro middle part, after which they return to the main theme. Made me think of Mountain (although less heavy of course).

    Hehe i couldn't agree more! I've probably listened to them 100 times now I was quite thrilled earlier, but now i can't F****** Wait!!

    By the way; Saw the Malmö DVD again last night. And i just gotta say....with Kenneth on board (Thanks for joining man, you're the best thing that could ever happen to this band!!!!) we're now looking at the best band in the world! A few more vocal practices and we'll have the best band in the universe

    Dude, it already WAS the best band in the world. Until LLM that is...

    That snippet of WBAT sure sounds pretty Mars Volta-ish, what with Snah and Kapstad being spotted at their Oslo-gig this year and last year.

    And yeah, every single song sounds fucking promising! But it pisses me off that the release is 3 weeks away, while a bunch of people already have their copies to play to death during Xmas Yeah, it's jealousy shining through allright. Could anyone who has the album at least post who wrote what?

    But I'll wait. I am after all so privileged to be following such a great long-lasting band.

    It's gonna be the longest 3 weeks ever

    PS: i don't think the promo copy reveals anything, judging by the posts earlier..

    @ Mark: You didn't like LLM? I for one respect Geb and all the hard work/good drumming he has put into MP the years he was a member. But hey....Kenneth Kicks his ass in skill imo! No doubt! Much more energetic and experimental! I love it!

    Kenneth Kicks his ass in skill imo

    My wish for 2010: Could we slowly start to drop this? I find it kinda embarrassing. Even if Geb's work is being credited in the same second, which actually reads sometimes like a quick excuse or something.
    Now it's Kenneth, yay, great drummer, woohoo, but please...

    If I was Geb and would care to read this board, I would feel slightly pissed. And rightly so.
