Could you define the word paranoiac
Could you define it in more detail

Ugh... It is when uh,
The name is uh, paranoiac critical method
Because its one, spontaneous method of knowledge
Basic in the instantaneous association
Of delirious matter

(...)

All I want,
All I want
You're all I want
All I want

All I want
You're all I want
All I want
You're all I want

I see you, I see grace
I love you now, feel the taste
I'll be there for you
I'll be there for you.

I see you now, you can't escape
Words too slow, us too late
I'll be there for you
I'll be there for you!

All I want
You're all I want
You're all I need
Baby you're all (I need)

Don't be scared
Don't be scared
Cause it dark at night
Cause it dark at night
Don't be scared...

As in, highly explosive? The Earth burns to a crisp? 
I can't say I am a fan, but I give it points for originality. 
The guitar work is giving me a 'Mark Knopfler' vibe, but the rest is nowhere near similar to Dire Straits.
how did i only rate is a 9 with that intro

Sort of?  Sounds to my ears like Totally! Not that that's a bad thing, but it is kinda eerie.

The love child of Jean Michel Jarre and B. Bumble and the Stingers, remixed by Gershon Kingsley, with a lashing of Hot Butter...

Excellent.
Popcorn!

Oh, man. I just saw that Pieter said the same thing a year ago. Clearly, Pieter and I are hearing the same thing. Which means we're both getting old. Hang in there, Pieter. The older we get, the slower we move. And the slower we move, according to the quantum physicists, the faster time passes. So, for us, all this INSANITY going on in the world should be over pretty soon.
 
Equinox, by Jean-Michel Jarre?

You got me wondering what this "Duke of Edinburgh Award" was. Thanks for expanding my awareness, under the heading of "good things happening in the world."

Great song!

Slight correction. His name is Jean Michel Jarre. Jeanne and Michelle are feminine names in French. 
My least favourite on an otherwise excellent album.

Also hearing a lot of Future Islands in there.  Not sure which came first, but I like them both
This band is growing on me. Except for the annoying intro, which is grating on me.
Pre tty good when the y get into it
Longest worst intro. Ever.
Stranger Things

I recently chose Porcupine Tree in a comparison with Younger Brother. In no way did I intend to disparage Younger Brother. This song rivals none. 
I had to look it up. That weird spoken introduction came from an interview with Salvador Dali. I'm very not surprised.
Each time this comes up on the RP playlists it gives me pause, and I always have to check to see who it is. Ah yes; right. It was my intro to YB (thanks Bill!) and I always find myself bopping along to it with a smile, despite of (because of?) its mash up of Floyd, Hot Butter, JMJarre, and a rather heavy dose of Yello.  I grew up with all of those in my collections and I'm a big Shpongle fan and love Posford's ability to combine such diverse musical influences and instrumentations. Good fun.

All I want is Jean Michel Jarre, who did far grander techno and much earlier. 
 Yes, for sure..it is quite complex and leads one into a musical realm {#Cool}  Holoien wrote:

Hear!  Hear!   Accompanied by loud table thumping.  (Except the band does use guitars.)

THANK YOU! Soooo good...

Then I realized they're vying for position as "World's Worst Pink Floyd 'TRIBUTE' band" and understood... it's going to be all right, Jeezis sent them to remind me how great the real Floyd are.

I hear a lot of Depeche Mode influence here.

My bad - sorry. I should obey the old maxim: a closed mouth gathers no feet. And now, less comment, more listen...
I walked out on this song and came back at the end and wondered if this was the same song. Weird and titillating.

YB are a recent discovery for me too, again through RP. I hear guitars on the album e.g. 'I am a freak' and 'Ribbon on a branch'? Maybe I'm wrong. Anyway I had no problem getting their CD's through Amazon although using them may grate with some people.

 
Best to buy them from the artist directly, aka Simon Posford et al, his site is twistedmusic.com.  His prices are reasonable, ships anywhere and he makes more money to pay for the ridiculous  Shpongle stage shows he puts on. There are guitars all over that too, LOL.

Once again, a very big thanks to RP for introducing me to YB, who have been an aural breath of fresh air, and who are truly distinctive. It's a shame that it's the devil's own job finding CDs of them in shops, but perhaps that comes from their club background where everything is distributed electronically and CDs are so passe' my dear.

Reminds me of an old Top 40 tune from the 60s, called "Popcorn".

Not a coincidence, I suspect.
Me it reminds very much of Röyksopp... except for the slide guitar {#Wink}

Younger Brother of Yello.

and I mean that in a good way. 
Other commentators have already mentioned but I definitely hear a trace of Floyd hear. I'm almost sure they are sampling one of their songs or something

I didn't know that it was Dali - thanks for the info. It's a nice spooky and surreal start to the song, which is an easy 8 from the tranced-out Nottingham jury.

These guys need to get Dave Gilmour on board for some riffage. It would be epic.
Way cool ... :-)
what a cool tune this is
hmm..
Dig it - Floyd "Animals" on giddy up!
 
I hear Jean Michel Jarre in a big way, with some twangy awesome guitar as well...very cool
Very reminiscent of those three albums after Syd went mad, the years that Gilmour refers to as, " Our psychedelic noodling days." The only thing missing from this is a searing Gilmour solo at the end!

He seems also to mimic Gilmour's sound and technique of playing the Fender lap steel without any pedals. 

Love the artwork, ( Storm Thorgerson RIP,) and the direction this band is going. Wish they'd add a guitarist to the mix. 
Moby Floyd.  Nice!
First time I've heard this.   Awesome.
 
Love it. For some reason it sounds like old Yello. 
I started by giving it an 8, but bumped it to a 9 quickly. Does the genre psychedelic electronica already exists?

didn't the 80's end 30 years ago?
{#Yes} {#Music} {#Cheers}
If they weren't aware of some (superficial) similarities to Pink Floyd they wouldn't have gone with the Hipgnosis-style cover art.

That said, it's their own sound even if they use techniques from the 80s electronica/prog-rock school. I could do without the pitch corrector, though.
nice set!
1 or 2 good things in this album, but not this tune.
Well, still better than any Moby's stuff indeed.

Just when I think the groove is done, along comes Bill G and confounds me.
