Haven't listened to this one in a few years but I really enjoyed the 2 weekends it took me to listen to it all. Would you like to listen to it all? I'm sure most of you already have but...

Haha. I listened to the well-tuned piano in one sitting. Twice! It's too amazing for words.

but, see, it's like an acid trip, you have to program yourself and say "i'm not doing anything for the next five hours but listen to lamonte".

I'm currently listened to the entire merzbox AGAIN. Not in one sitting and it will probably take a few weeks, but I'm listening to it all on headphones this time.. last time (a good 5 or 6 years ago), I mainly listened out of my computer speakers.

Anyway, a lot these albums are really great. I find most of the discs extremely interesting. There's some pure bullshit here or there but I'm surprised by some of the experiments on here. Bizarre detuned piano and prepared guitar stuff here or there, gongs (probably sampled), what appears to be Merzbow making food, breathing, coughing, burping, fixing a hole in his wall or whatever... also, as a bonus, a nice smooth free jazz set at some Russian festival and pure rock action. I don't think any of the discs approach Pulse Demon or Rainbow Electronics, but SONS OF SLASH NOISE METAL and the 4 SCUM (Scissors for Cutting Up Merzbow) albums on here are really awesome.

I definitely reccomend downloading this and burning it!!

That is wonderful. I was just about to point out I'd love to listen to Pulse Demon one day. Thanks for this Adam.

While you are waiting to "program," maybe you can digest this:



 


On a little more serious note, I tried downloading something from the list (to the right) of the Merzbox listing and all I get is a new screen that prompts me to, "click for download." Of course I do and the madness starts all over again......what am I doing wrong?
