the only similarity btwn p-head & morcheeba is the existence of female vocals.
& personally, i quite enjoy the more morbid morcheeba at times. a
beautiful album dwelling in the dark side..

god-like? hmmm..

only releases lately that have found their way into my bin that even come
close to god-like.. hmm.. would have to be the "sons of silence" album
and that gorgeous "coco steel & lovebomb".. god-like, tho.. that's
pushing it. how does one describe music as god-like? maybe the whole
concept bugs me.
