    It's a grower. I enjoyed it the first time I listened to it, but am finding a deeper appreciation with repeated spins.

    Just got the vinyl.

    What a ravishing fucker of an album! Retro-cool hipness factor through the roof, yet untouchably great in all its blatant motive and ambition! This is one of the best things I've heard this year...

    I have found it to reveal more and more subtleties with repeated listens. Should figure in my top 5 of 2015.

    Glad I checked it out myself instead of passing it by based on the above (I've got no interest in "retroprog"). Yes, there is a "vintage" sound, but it's mostly due to the instrumentation and production, IMO, not totally the music itself. Thumbs up! Couldn't justify the price of the imported vinyl for what is a pretty short album, but the DL is working just fine for me.

    Listened to this record three times in a row last Friday, and kept hyping them to the cats in Panzerpappa whose gig I caught later that evening. While not at all the same ilk of "jazzy variations", the Pappzis are only one of several Oslo bands that would fit a double bill with Hooffoot.

    Quickly becoming my no. 1 wanted Scandinavian live act to witness around these parts.

    Same here! I went the Bandcamp download method.

    I would buy the cd. The vinyl gets fucked up every time I try and play it in the car.

    indeed... I cringed when I ordered the vinyl with the cost of shipping and the Cdn dollar, taking my finger away from the mouse a number of times before saying what the hell and ordered the Agusa at the same time to "save money".

    One of my favs for this year as well

    Both made my list this year though I'm more partial to Agusa's debut.

    Man, I hear that. I dread to think how much my next order from Synphonic will add up to in Canadian play money. C'mon Canadian dollar, get your shit together.

    The Agusa debut came out last year. Their second album was released this year.

    There is a lot of soul, time, and a shit load of money invested into this our debut album. Also this is an 100% analog production. After putting all that effort into the sound it didn´t feel right to throw it all in the MP3 grind. However, of course we want people to be able to hear this! :-)
    We have contemplated your opinions in this thread and then decided to follow your advice. Now it is available for lossless download from Bandcamp.
    Hope the price is right? (I have no idea since I never download myself)
    Enjoy!

    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    I like to throw discs around in my car too
    I burn CDs from my LPs for that purpose
