Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

I got some info about the release. There was never an official release date and there was never an official press release yet, but it is still going to be released. They are waiting for the right time. The early leak made the whole thing confusing.

That's really odd considering there seemed to have been multiple dates, so where did those come from is the question. We'll see it eventually, but man, this is such a odd situation.

Listening to Nocturne once more Vangelis should recorded acoustic piano.
Plasticy sounding digital piano used on Nocturne doesn't do justice to the music.
Even a decent sampled piano Ivory, Moddart, Garritan, Vienna would been better.

Wow, Armin, nice! He's talking about the PCR test, he does happen to live in a city where there's a relatively low contamination rate (I live there too).

If there's one thing that I have learned from the handful of interviews he has partaken in in the past decade. Absolutely everyone conducting the interview is asking the absolutely worst and creatively bankrupt questions.

Listening to Vangelis last studio electronic albums in 80s :
The City, Direct, Invisible Connections, Soil Festivities

It is understandible Vangelis felt he had done all he could in electronic music
because these albums aren't doing anything different to what Vangelis done previously.

So kind of understandibly logically Vangelis turned towards what he has been doing since 90s.

Oh man, I love Direct.

Even though even in the YouTube era, the whole "Jean Michel Jarre - Metallic Rain" thing hasn't died off and thus probably never will. :P

Soil Festivities is such a wonderful piece when it's raining outside. It just enhances the mood all the more.
Invisible Connections, it's just Beaubourg 2.0. There's probably a solid idea somewhere in there, but for a casual listen? Yeah, no...
I love Direct, it's such a fascinating album that goes all over the place. It's clearly not the typical approach he had to making music, but the results are great never the less.
The City is a wonderful piece of musical landscaping, although Nerve Centre is kind of... Weird combined with the rest?

I honestly understand why he started doing completely different things after Direct (I'd say The City fits in the sound scaping of Voices, Oceanic and El Greco), but man I wish he'd return to it or release some of the unreleased stuff from this period. Its really good stuff and I really enjoy nearly every second of it. He has admitted that there are albums that he has made and was planning on releasing, but those albums just never ended up happening for one reason or another. Opening up the vaults for this would be terrific. He has shown he's not that difficult with including (rare) tracks to new releases, so a release entirely made up of unreleased stuff could be interesting if he could find the motivation to do it. Different period, but I remember reading that Earth in specific was cut way down back in the day, I would do some genuinely terrible things to hear those tracks included.



And unrelated to those albums, where the hell is Juno to Jupiter!?

that Jarre mettalic rain :clap:


Thing with Direct it's the Big V's most Tangerine Dream sounding album : compositionally, sound choices, mastering : Direct sounds as Optical Race, Lily On the Beach, Melrose.

Only Glorianna, Oracle of Apollo, Message on Direct sounds as V.
