  2. Hi Tom,

    I was still with the previous album ... Lark Uprising. I haven't received "Watching Edvard" yet.

  4. that's right:

    'innovative' and at least 'experimental' are the most stupid killer arguments since long, long year used by lots of critics.

    and - doesn't say anything

  5. But "Lark Uprising" by Ircha is a record from 2010.

  7. I'm afraid I've so far heard from this list only # 10, but it's just as incomparably beautiful as probably any of these albums. So I'll vote for # 10, and am happy that I don't have to compare.

  9. J'aime beaucoup le Foton Quartet mais n'est-il pas sorti en 2010?

  10. Foton Quartet is indeed from 2010, but it may take some time before the album is shipped and listened to and reviewed ... so late 2010 albums should get their chance in 2011.

  11. William Parker and his Winter sun crying is the one album, among the "handfull" I heard on this list, that left me with the most profound will to meet it again.
