He is an absolute genius!!!! His work with X-Legged Sally is amazing. "The land of the giant dwarfs" is one of my favorite Belgian albums ever.

I even got some more experimental classical stuff like "De oplosbare vis" and also his soundtrack for Lubitsch's "The Oyster Princess". Out of his early days, I've got Rosas Danst Rosas on vinyl.

Can you please do something for me? Can you ask him if he still has copies of the X-Legged Sally albums? These haven't been available for years. I've tried to track them down for more than 10 years and gave up a few years ago. I only got "The land of the giant dwarfs", "Immer das Selbe Gelogen" and "Bereft of a Blissful Union". So I really like to get my hands on:
Slow-Up (1991)
Killed By Charity (1993)
Eggs and Ashes (1994)
Fired (1996)

At this moment "Eggs and Ashes" is for sale on eBay, but it costs 65 euro. :(
If I ever run into him, I'll ask :lol:

I distinctly recall listening to X-Legged Sally albums about five years ago, and now can't remember anything except cover-art and that their music was too complex for me to decipher after several listenings. Comparisons with Zappa left me quite puzzled, although reviews might have meant his more jazz fusion-y stuff which I'm not a fan of.

@joachimt, all their albums that you're looking for are on rutracker @ mp3 320kbps.

The Winery Dogs = Mike Portnoy + Billy Sheehan + Richie Kotzen

I rarely buy live-albums these days, but I made an exception for this one. The reason: as a bonus-disc you get the full debut album!! I didn't have it yet, so good deal. :)

I just love Anathema. The last few albums are pure gold. :wub:

I'm doing the opposite today. The cd-shelves are getting too full, so I just selected 23 cd's to remove from my collection. The shelves were full when we moved into this house 8 years ago. My wife is happy I have managed to clean things up now and then, so the total collection hasn't grown since.

I sure hope you aren't proud of that. Collections need to grow, not shrink! ;)

I used to think that ten years ago, but my collection kept growing very fast back then. I think it was already at 2200 cd's when my wife and I started living together. There were piles of cd's on top of the shelves because it didn't fit anymore. Then I cleaned out stuff I probably wouldn't play ever again. Since then my collection stayed between 1800 and 1900 cd's which is nice.

My movie collection on the other hand......

But I thought you said you don't like metal? :P As to Opeth, I think they've been extremely consistent, haven't heard a poor effort from them so far, but, sure, some folks will prefer one album over another, that's pretty normal :)

Heh, indeed, me no like metal, that's why I gave Heritage a spin! :P I just know people freaked out about it not being (death) metal at all - and others loved it for that same reason. I like the idea of Heritage better than the result. Maybe I'll give it another try.

I gave Heritage about 10 tries before deciding to buy it. Don't give up too soon.

Their latest album is also on my to-buy-list. I enjoyed it a lot quicker than Heritage.

I really don't have problems with bands evolving like that. I've got albums of Anathema from their earliest days till now (although I enjoy their recent work the most) and I even still like Pain of Salvation (although I enjoy their old work the most).

Yes, I'm well aware of that, but I've got into Opeth more due to my interest in prog, which also includes the heavy end, i.e. death (albeit melodic at times) metal. And Joachimt is very much correct about Opeth (and this actually applies to prog in general) - you need to listen to their albums several times before deciding you don't like them - I'm certainly always discovering new things with each listen. I'd actually recommend to check out Damnation which features their most progressive side, but earlier albums and most notably Still Life and Blackwater Park should certainly be checked out ;)

Blackwater Park was the album that my friend gave me to listen to in high school. Gave it a couple of listens, but didn't get anything out of it. Meandering ten-minute metal songs with tedious interludes and unconvincing growling aren't my thing, even if they have a good riff here and there.

Also saw them live at a music festival last summer. They were very very :sleeping:
