Maybe, but it sucks oranges. And who can resist an orange smile.

"Kris H gave me a sample that could be the source of the 'Orange!' in Aquarius. The sample is from the film "UHF", and the voice is that of Michael Richards (Cosmo Kramer from Seinfeld) playing the character Stanley Spadowski, and telling a bad joke about an orange. I've no idea whether it is the source, so I'll let readers decide for themselves."
love it !.....would go great with Little Fluffy Clouds.
What's that song that Bill plays that goes "one step closer, I am one step closer... to hea--ven.. ?" this song sort of brings it to mind for me... Ah. Supreme Beings of Leisure, "Never the Same."
this song just totally sucks

Not just boring, but for me personally, irritating. Very...
Entering my inner being of the infinite now
Ambient. Not ambient. Seditious.Comforting. Ambivalent.Direct. Confusing.Linear. RP has the right to children.
"Knowledge."
Hello, Feels pointless to me...and more than a bit annoying. 2 IMO. Neil
Different!!!

feeling a little TOO smooth, Johnny? :lol:
Never heard of them before - and that's a good thing. Not my cup o' tea, whot.
I like it. Reminds me of mellower Porcupine Tree. They use the random vocal numbers, too. Cool effect, IMO. 7

Cool... and pervy... sort of ambient
This song is creepy in a . . . dirty, white van with no windows kind of way. Ok, I cleaned out and white washed the van, now we just have to get some candy. :eh:
This is almost guaranteed to be hated here, but I like it. From this album though, I far prefer both Roy G Biv and SixtyTen.
How 'bout something from The Campfire Headphase? I think that might go over a bit better.
Experimenting by mixing random sounds to get a soothing ambient song is cool. But don't call this a final product. The counting is just annoying among other things. Revise!

too funny
Why do I have flashes of Thomas Dolby saying "Science!" here ? Eh, I could do without this. Not to bad in small doses, but no album sides for me.
Interesting. But isn't it a little early in the day to be smoking weed?
Is the guy with the citrus fixation William Shatner, or is someone taking the pith?
What the? .... Huh ..... Uhhhh ..... ummmm .... Just a thought here... What the hell is going on? What does this mean? This shite is messed up... Does Yoko Ono have anything to do with this project?
"Orange"?
Be right back , I have this sudden inexplicable craving for some juice.
YAY for Boards of Canada!

yea, did that sarah and sure enough there are two free downloads: Rapunzel and Silver Seas both are quality but in so saying taking nothing away from boards of canada who have their very own story to tell.
This song is phenomenally irritating. If you want to hear a song that integrates classroom talk from your childhood in an interesting way, google for Novak's Rapunzel. That's quality.
I rarely have anything negative to say. However... this song entirely irritated me. Granted I'm not in the best of moods, but that irked me right into a worse one. Songs like that should be soothing and pleasant, in my opinion. That wasn't. Sorry. I still love you RP... but of course! ;) RBS
As a large fan of chill and downtempo, Id have to say BoC is my *least* favorite. Their tracks are designed to be unsettling, and mildy annoying, on purpose. And it works, on me. There are far better producers of chill and downtempo to choose from. Why BoC is popular is a mystery to me. Lily
Very eclectic. Would like to hear this on headphones. Another band I would never have heard, if not for RP and Bill Goldsmith. THANK YOU, Bill!!!

Creepy. Don't think I want any porridge right now.
I feel like I'm watching Sesame Street while really......un-sober.
Yippee! Glad to hear some BoC on RP!
Yish
Like it. :)
Very good. I'm glad to hear some ambient music on RP. Thanks, Bill.
I like this. Upload some more, please PattonFever Interesting read on Wikipedia. Especially the Incredible String Band influence ! I used to have all their records too.
This is just stupid - orange or not.
:dancingbanana_2:
:cool: One of the better electronica acts around. With a more 'organic' approach to their sound. Love their stuff.
yay! my upload! i love this track, with or without a tab. :) - i'm a fan of the surreal. thanks for adding this one, bill! :cheers:

Wow, I think these guys do the music for the creepy, insane, and awesome web cartoons, "Salad Fingers." Or at least their music was used. Not this song, but something. Neat and weird at the same time. Starts out at a 5.
A weird sample from a Better Than Ezra song!
Boards of Canada! This is a truly remarkable album, very warm and organic, unlike most other electronica. Recommended listening! Apparently, Boards of Canada is two scottish brothers, sitting in an old abandoned military bunker making music. :mrgreen:
Yeahh that's right
