The Bright Side, first and foremost, thank you for listening and also for supporting the release with a download from Jan's store, IIRC.The problem I have with it is that I can't warm up to it. The same way I can't get into e.g. most Yes or Steven Wilson albums, or XTC.
Haha - thanks, TBS, for your detailed response! It really helps me understand your point of view better. Yes, I did misunderstand what you meant about SW, XTC & Yes.Quick addition: I've listened to two XTC albums for a few times each, and I don't hear any noticeable similarity between their music and Disturbing the Universe. The reason I name-dropped them is not because of any musical similarities, but because of similarities in my experience: I was spinning them repeatedly to try and get into them, but then couldn't (not enough to permanently add them to my collection).
Jon, what can be said? This surround album would not exist without QQ. PERIOD.... it's far better than many of the officially released big-label SACDs and DVD-As of the early 21st Century.
Best of luck and stay safe, Mike.Hey QQ family,
I'm not sure how often I'll be able to check in on QQ, for the next year, so I wanted to say thank you again.
Thanks to everyone who has given the album a listen.
Thanks to everyone who has voted and commented. Everyone who does has a chance to make a huge difference in the life of this album. Without label support or major marketing, your word of mouth is very important.
Those of you who were supportive or encouraging early on might find yourself on the credits and thanks page of the Blu-ray, so be sure to check that out.
Along those lines, there is bonus content on the 2.0 page, and the credits and the essay pages. I hope you find them all!
