Happy to have ordered a copy midday on Monday with no problem at all, so hopefully it'll turn up on Wednesday, when I shall listen in glorious Stereo 8)

Hope the Stereo Star Maps arrived as anticipated Garden :lol:
Personally ordered at 16.00 monday with no response or movement from SOS
I know the gremlins were amongst despite that still no show
On the dispatch of the cd .
Would rather get a confirm though despite the latest message of SOS sell out
Double whammy :cry:

8) Indeed it has Mr Oyster.
It popped through my letterbox yesterday and I've just finished listening for the first time on headphones. All I can say is that you're in for a real treat when your copy arrives. Many beautiful, strange and wonderful guitar sounds amid songs and instrumentals that float on clouds.

Maybe you'd better get in touch with SOS to ask for confirmation of your order, seeing as you placed it on Monday and have yet to receive an update response to your email address. Most unusual for that to happen, but maybe they can put your mind at rest by checking for you.

Good wishes and good luck,
Mr Garden :P

Ahhhhhh Bill....I do love it when you are in Interstellar Space Transmission mode. I've been listening to your new album all week as I drive to work in the dark, rain and fog and am finding it to be the perfect contemplative accouterments to my travels. About the only critique I would level is that this record should come with a warning label that listening can transport you to other realms. I've had hallucinating snowmen dancing through my head all week.

There is a nagging sense that this is a spiritual cousin to 'The Love that Whirls', even though they are obviously nothing alike. Maybe it's the intermix of lush pop tunes with all the cosmic interludes.

I want to rave about the guitar playing also, which is so tasteful and perfect. Every little solo leaves me begging for more.

I know I am pre-disposed to liking your weirder endeavors, but I really think this is right up there with your very best. Great stuff.

BTW - I know I don't get around here much anymore but I hope your ear thing is okay. Take care!

I gelled with this album immediately. It kept me company on my recent trip to Yorkshire, and I love it more with every listen :D 8)

Listening to Stereo Star Maps and Fantastic Guitars on near constant rotation at the moment, both are real growers that benefit from repeated listening.

The former reminds me at times of the lightness and spaciousness (if that's a word) of two great earlier albums, "Return to Jazz of Lights" and "Golden Melodies of Tomorrow", but with a different flavour - warmer, more guitar-based.

The latter - well I really wasn't sure at first. Not what I expected, but of course that's generally a good thing. As others have said, it really does sound like the work of one artist rather than two. And the melodies are there, slowly revealing themselves and burrowing their way into your mind. Skillful indeed!

Thanks once again Bill - keep 'em coming! (without damaging your hearing of course!)

Neill
