    Sees 'how anything earth-related is 'overrated' is beyond me [2]'... "Oh, someone must be claiming 'Earth2' or 'A bureaucratic...' are a bit much, or at least in someway superseded by more recent works..." "Bees is overrated" Alright then, most unlikely option it is.

    What does everybody think of that killer track "September (feat. Wind & Fire)?" Interesting new direction for these guys, I think.

    Torn By The Fox of the Crescent Moon is a song which I really just can't get over. Way too good.

    Listening to Earth 2: Special Low Frequency Version was a pretty interesting experience. - I have to listen to this entirely, this is the first drone doom album ever and Sunn O))) were super influenced by that stuff. I'd actually max the volume on my headphones for a better listening experience. *click* BWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) *after 73 minutes* - Wow, that was cool.
