    These guys keep blowing my mind. Somehow they just capture life in their music in a way that no other artist can do. Really disappointing they're not together anymore.

    This is one of the most satisfying bands I've ever listened to. It's so amazing and it surprises me that nothing sounds like it, 'cause their formula works. I love it.

    why did they split up?

    Amazing discography and also some of the best use of samples. Truly magical music.

    What art The Books make - truly wonderful. Make sure you listen to 'Prefuse 73 Reads The Books' if you are a fan of this group - joyously clever use of their work to make totally new compositions.

    The end of this group is the saddest thing I've ever heard [2] listening to A Dot In Time really makes me feel sad.

    none of the related artists are related in any way besides the fact that they both produce sound

    they didnt break up did they??"

    They aren't as random or "aleatoric" as many say they are. Nick Zammuto has said in interviews that the majority of their songs are meticulously planned out, not just left to chance and happen to turn out good.

    Thanks to Nicolas Jaar for introducing me to The Books. Great stuff.

    What's with all the italian samples?

  • InKursion

    @folkfag: aleatoric music seems to have worked pretty well for the rest of the 20th century avant-garde.

    oh shit tell me these guys didn't break up!

    The Way Out is awesome, why no listeners?

  • danwramrich

    I'm enjoying so far (The Lemon Of Pink) even though they sample a lot. Experimental is not everyone actually.

    Yeah I don't get the hate, these guys blew me away on first listen. Genius stuff.

    I guess they are not for everyone. Do you have to discourage everyone else from checking them out just because you don't personally like it? Here's another opinion: The Books are fucking brilliant.
