Somnium This is one of my most favorite albums ever, a piece of music I listen to remember that music can still be exhilarating. I literally sometimes listen to this album in my dreams. Favorite track: Amalia's Theme.

quantumj4k Nothing at all resembling traditional songs, yet it is great music that creates feeling and atmosphere. Stay away if you must have singable songs and catchy riffs. Frankly, this sounds like a soundtrack waiting for a David Lynch movie to be made to. If you like music as an experience, or as background while you work on something else, this album works great on either of those two levels.

Alexander Silcott This is my favorite album. The first time I heard it from The Flenser, I immediately fell in love and had this immense spiritual connection with the chaotic sound that soothed me deep down. Toby Driver is a musical genius and a constant inspiration. Favorite track: Magnetism.

Delphi it drew us Over the touchscreen Delphi it threw us Up like a stone In sheep's clothing Instrumental The gods that roil Inside of us As she whistles her sweet Oracles Out by the poolside Ravings of suicide As Athens is burning Plots and visions Empty amber bottle Opiate The sky is blue today Gone tomorrow Castalian Spring Watching clouds Amalia nods Shield shroud Of moonbeams sacramental Poolside cigarette smoke That gyres up like prophecies Glyph in dragging blood Amalia swayin' through the Hotel corridors Shuffling through the Thousands years Oracular and wandering
