None taken. Whatsoever.
I did listen to some / sampled the Andy Partridge collab. It's a little more atonal in parts than I'm used to with Budd, more experimental I guess. Usually it could be a plus, on this one maybe a bit less so. Keyboard sounds that haven't aged all that well. The pads and all.
That Partridge guy has a really crisp sound on the acoustic guitar, nice room reverb to it. Favorite track was Anima Mundi, there's a Fripp-Eno thing in there somewhere. And on some parts of the album there seems to be MIDI guitars used for winds and brass, sure that hasn't aged in the best of fashions but I'm certain at the time it was more 'ground-breaking'.
My go to stuff from Budd is probably still gonna be The Plateau of Mirrors & The Pearl. Something about the 70s sound, recorded on tape, the tones on these albums age better than most things done in 80s and 90s I find. Plus, these guys recorded something cliché before it was cliché. That's something.
