I'd go with A Static Place. Listened to both albums just yesterday. While A Static Place convinced me from the very beginning and has been a nice listen for the past few weeks, I still didn't make it past track 4 on Ravedeath, 1972. Rather tiring underwhelming.
I've had the same experience, I just figured my head was elsewhere at the time. Both occasions I've sat down to listen to Ravedeath, 1972, I've completely lost interest midway through.
I've liked A Static Place quite a bit, but the new Remain on Line I've liked even more.
Same here...i lost interest after track 5 but i really like to blame Ben Frost about that
Sparklehorse + Fennesz .. which i finally found the vinyl edition in a small shop in Vienna.
Oh, and someone played his promo of belong's "common era" to me. That is pretty disappointing... fucking hell. Some people will love it but to me it lacks the depth of "october language" which is one of the best records ever.
