    Oh yea Become Ocean is an experience. Reminds me of Mandala Symphony by Toshiro Mayazumi. I like BOC when they don't do their own music.

    I can't read 100 best lists but I do hope Rodan was on it. This piece was a 90s dorm room classic and always reminded me of Larks Tongue Pt II.

    i was saying Captain Beefheart's use of rhythm seems Stravinskian to me, in nature not sound, math rock is more severely linear and derives from post-rock and minimalism. Brubeck is mentioned in...
