Fair enough, thanks for giving it a shot and skimming through.
Did anyone like it?  Guess not based on the lack of comments.  :rofl:

That does ring a bell. If memory serves, I do recall someone talking to him about the move.

i gave it a listen, and i thought it was nice to listen to while on-line.  (my computer "rig" actually sounds pretty decent, w/a monsoon speaker system - same midrange/tweeter ribbons as what's used in the vmps rm40's.)  and if fip france ever plays any of it, i'm ok w/that.  but i'm not sure it's something i'd be wanting to cue up on my system to sit down to hear in a listening session.

Yea Doug, it's certainly not "front row center" worthy, nor would I torture my friends with it as the main focus. But it's great as background music while performing tasks, driving, etc...

Thanks Steve!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all ya fellas!  :thumb:

So... there's "chill-out", but then there's chill-out with some serious range from "top to bottom" with regard to volume.
The "loudness wars" definitely did NOT find this band!
No lyrics. At times, it's soft and slow, and others, it's loud and pumping adrenalin.
Hope you enjoy.

Full album just released today.
Instead of "critical listening" in the audio room, I'd recommend to be performing some task, and let this be your "drive".

Again, would love to hear thoughts about this one.
I'd never seen or heard of these instruments until I ran across these guys.
Most interesting.

One of my favorite bands in this genre, Those Who Ride With Giants just release a single , "The Walk of Thunder":
https://youtu.be/kaQmn8Cnlps?t=11

Anybody else dig it?

EDIT: The music doesn't start til 0:38, and doesn't "take off" til 1:05, so don't quit on me too early.   :rofl:

Hi Bob.
Not bad ! I would not listen to it everyday,
but once in a while, I like it.
