    I listened for the first time yesterday to the 76 14 and I liked it a lot. I'm going to have another listen, tonight.

    76:14 лучший альбом который мне доводилось послушать, Я до сих пор не понимаю почему он так не популярен.

    @vela there really aren't too many to choose from (at least as full albums.) I think the pentamerous is a great start. but with their multitude of aliases and side projects there's lots to dig into. the mixes I did on percussion lab will give you the full package, short of Pritch and Middelton's more recent solo outings and collabs http://www.percussionlab.com/users/hayhook

    The recent news about Curiosity landing made me realize how much 76:14 makes me think of Mars. It's like you're the first man on its surface, all alone because the rest of your crew died in a failed landing. The communication systems are busted and there's no way back home. During the course of the album, you delve into introspection and eventually come to terms with your fate.

    Почему этот "14:31" в топе? Явно не лучший трек
