Most Creative Use of Close to the Edge Award


...goes to these guys, Ultramarine, “Lights in My Brain.” I have to admit DJ Spooky's remix of this is incredible. Good example of bitonality in dance music. I always feel that's a good effect. The vocal sample is Robert Wyatt from the first Soft Machine album. It sums up a lot of what I feel about reality. But why?

Every Man and Woman is a Star. Fantastic album.

An imaginary journey into organic electronica. You could just taste the soundscapes.

Kingdom was also a favourite.

Miss them dearly.

I loved the album years ago, and still love the first Softs album. (And liked Ultramarine's first, too.) But where's Close to the Edge??
