nothing
merzbox also includes a concept of impossible download

ok serious answer, if you delete your cookies/history then go back to the page and try and download again sometimes this works, if not then there's probably something wrong with the link.

It is great!! I'm really surprised by the consistent quality of Merzbow releases.

What is far more important to me is that, disc after disc, I was completely surprised by the variation in sounds and the amazing abundance of styles. I heard pieces here that I never would have thought were produced by Merzbow. And this from an artist I have followed avidly for 10 years and from whom I have heard well over a hundred albums. While I wanted to avoid bringing the breadth of this set into the discussion, it should be noted that over 50 hours of music, Masami only very infrequently lapses into repetition as he continually introduces new techniques and kinds of sound. It is a huge testament to Masami Akita's talent that he constantly refines his tactics and reinvents his sound, while maintaining an unusually high level of quality. To say he is not a one-trick pony is a drastic understatement.

so I've decided to do a marathon of strictly listening to the merzbox and nothing else until I complete it. Not fully sure why, but it's been a fun ride. Especially when listening to it at work and seeing customers pissed off. Started on Wednesday night, and am around 26:30 in to it. Could finish this off as quickly as Saturday night

so far my favourites have been solonoise, paradoxa paradoxa, mechanization takes command, dying mapa tapes 3-4, pornoise 1 and pornoise extra.

I haven't gone through the whole box yet, even though I wish I had more time to do so.

Well fuck, how did I miss this thread?

Ahem.....I am a Merzboxee, and I treasure the fucking thing! I'm constantly surprised at how good nearly all of the 50cds are. These ain't throwaways. Roger Richards at Extreme deserves a Knighthood for having the balls to do this.

I did the chronological listening initially, but now, whenever I want to delve into the box (usually weekly) I ask my wife to pick a number between 1 and 50.

The book is fucking great.

Hahaha....what is "normal"? My "career" allows me to indulge in these interests.

CD36 is my fav....a real turning point.

CD11.....hmmmmm.....an experiment I suppose, but a failed one imho. I really hate it when my wife says "11".

And, if it looks like chicken, smells like chicken, and tastes like chicken, but Chuck Norris says it's the Merzbox........

then it's the fucking Merzbox.
