226 boxes must take up a bit of storage space. I wonder how long until he does a deep discount or giveaway. TBH, it's be cool to have a copy, but the price is insane.

If anyone here has listened to this, which is the best side to listen to?

Read my review earlier in the thread. I believe I'm the only person who has listened to it.

Must be boring for Corgan to realize that people were more interested in his expensive signed release version than the more affordable unsigned version.
Showing that this box is more bought for collecting than for listening to...

Troo fans don't listen to it, we watch all 8 hours of it on youtube from Monte's 2003 webcam.

Exactly what I can't get over. This seems separate from the rest of SP merch as seen here so you KNOW these things are sitting somewhere in a storage unit somewhere. Previously, they probably were stacked up in the employee bathroom of Zuzu's on a wooden palate... but now? Where did those things all land?

The question that I have opined on in this thread before - how low would he have to go before I'd buy one? It would need to be crazy low. I just don't want to store the thing since it's unlistenable.

...and then you get your expensive box damaged by poor packaging.

Which happened more than once.

I wonder if Billy has given any of these as gifts at his family Christmas parties. They would make for good stocking fillers, next to a pair of novelty socks and a plastic bracelet from the local chemist.

Christmas can be a fraught time, more likely to end up embedded in someone's skull. Weighs a ton, they'd go down for sure.

At first I thought, why dont you just take a look at page 16 but I'd forgotten what a toll it took just to bother to listen to. Used a work from home day if I remember correctly. Wish I'd written the review if the first disk in the style of the rest...

#138 Signing in.

Ordered day of release. It looks fucking amazing, not £450 amazing but all the same great artwork. Could have done without the shitty stylophone. I'm enjoying the hat.

I watched about an hour of the livestream baked other than that no idea if this is going to be listenable or not.

1A*

Gristle. The vinyl looks like a slab of glass, nice crackle.
Bouncy squelch. Sounds alright, more tuneful than the Aegea recording, Selected Ambient Works II-esque.
Eastern feel creeps in. Drums shutter. Could be NIN. Stop.

1B

Picks up where it left off and gets creepier. Hops and whitstles segue into an alarm.
Dentist drill. Becoming a difficult listen, I'm concerned what the neighbors think. Too much, had to turn down.
Speeds up, better, softer. Fades down and yelps take over.
Alien soundscape, more atmosphere, swarm of bees.
Oppressive gibber.
This is going to be more difficult than I thought.

2A

More oscillation (if that's the right word)
Plinks and plonks
Here's a tip WPC: If you're going to release a reinterpretation of the book with noise and no narration, you might want to ******* the book in the package.
Fades.
Soft patter, slight echo, minimal.
Bleeps to the forefront, confused dance, mixed up thud underneath.
A machine still operating thru the night.

2B

Snaffles and spits. Downward trend.
Slowing down.
Am I the first person to listen to this? Including its author.
Meanwhile back on the spaceship.
Burning engines distorted as fuck.

3A

Crackle. Snap and pop have long since departed. Up and down steadily as an army of tiny ants plough underneath the grooves. Hark a warning sound, and then gone. Repeats. Crickets talk now below the buzzing flies. Shoo shoo the laser seems to say. Techno chops at the low end Turning Dragonesque. Pop's back, this time atop a subtle little thrill. Crackle pull a knife on pop, drags him under slowly like a Canadian octopus. Yes.

3B

Charming nonsensical notes. There is a tune here but it has been mangled into mud. Very different to before, playful like ring a ring of roses. Clumsy feedback swells divert attention screaming beams of windy sound all around. Atishoo, atishoo, we all fall down.

4A

Plinky plonk, space bound, no real purpose jus' moochin' round. Dark here now. More dentist chair antics on this Savage Planet. Won't somebody think about the Ohms! Clangers won't, too busy foraging for scrap to know what to do. Emergency emergency, just for a second and then back to the business; whatever that is. More techno! More dragon! A cheeky little surprise, held back for the reprise.

4B

Fists full of synth. Smash. Fatlip. A train, a train, a train, a train, would you, could you, step away? The guard whistles, playing his tricks, stop starting the train with the peep of his lips. Incas appear, pan-pipe bombing the creaking metal tracks and that is that. We're all ears, if ears were echoes, ringing out and squaring a circle at the break of a new day. Ambient embrace, all over the place.

5A*

Tick tock bass motors around a cuckoo clock. Swiss made so the legend says. Show your inners. Show the working. The bird chirps. Cuckoo ups the pace and the wood is replaced. Metal now and modern too. More stabs. More beeps and creeps for you. A swell of sound, grey cloud droops over the fictional mountain and away to Baden-Württemberg. In the woods the birds are silent as something lurks wandering around, batteries low, powering down.

5B

All the ghosts flail about. Looking for the nooks and searching for the cranny's. Like poached egg white. Swooshing around a pan. The electricity starts, tradition. Spectre's are hiding now the sweet sound scared 'em. The sound subsides and the lasers are back, searchlights all around a very old factory. It powers up with a din and a thud, it's purpose a bump in the night. Inside the machine springs bounce slowly but I don't know why. Like breathing but mechanical, up and down and up and down lungs fill and deflate, the spirits chatter, free now, as the sounds wind down before one last up up up and away.

Clearly this and Aegea were just the results of a rich guy buying a giant modular synth. It is really hard to recognize even post-2007 degraded BC in this stuff. It is just... amateur.

#siddarthareviewsurvivor


i can't even imagine if this album had been a success... like if the muffwiggler fanbase had appreciated it where billy'd be now. where would billy be now. Even the levels of success for the Richard Divines, Robert Richs or Alessandro Cortinis are below SP5.8's success. There's literally ZERO dollars to be made.





speaking of muff, with mike's passing... what are the plans for netphoria if pakula dies?



has anyone seen a circulating rip of this set? I'm feeling masochistic.
