Welcome to the new BlahBlahCafe!

We have migrated to a new server. As with every migration, some things might have been lost in translation (at least, that's my experience in software development). The main problem is logging in into the boards. These could be caused by several reasons:

- Your browser cache & cookies need to be cleared because we moved to a new server. If you get the error message whilst logging: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.", you need to clear your cache & cookies. You can find a "Delete cookies" option at the bottom of this page.

- There is also a chance that your password is not correctly converted to the new system. This is a known bug with migrating the system. The only solution is to request a new password, there's a link on the form that will send an email to you to create a new password. If that fails, I can set a password for you, you can contact us at the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

You know what? Movement 6 has actually been my favorite track so far from what's been shown to us. I just can't decide whether I like it or now. My 18 year old, who really liked Opening (Coachella) didn't think it was that great either. As for the album itself, I get the feeling we're definitely go...

(...) But in all fairness, a week later I would actually give it 8/10. I've been listening to it every single day. Apart from Infinity, I like the whole thing. Then why don't you update your notation? Because I didn't write the review now. I wrote it a week ago. I don't want to pull a Rolling Stone...

Rather positive would be wore accurate.
7/10 is positive.

It was kinda funny. When I sat down with Jarre, Fiona asked me: "Did you know that the album comes with two different covers? "Yes," I replied. "Ok, because the Spanish journalist we just spoke to didn't" And I, without thinking said; "Yeah, I mentioned it in my review ...

In a few days time. It's HUGE, so I might split it into several parts.

I interviewed him for two hours in his flat in Paris last Friday, and he said he was indeed working on Electronica 3. Marcus Miller and Röyksopp are possible collaborators.

I'm personally not a fan of those 2013 RCA remasters myself. The actual sound quality is excellent, but the new stylistic changes with the reverb (and even multiple edits) were rather questionable. I do recommend the Delectus set, but just get it through iTunes for €10. It's surprisingly cheap. Or ...

Is it remastered in the usual Vangelis way? Make it sound like the original album is played inside a bathroom, then record that with an open air mike and release it and call it a remaster? I wouldn't consider that the usual way. Direct was pretty much perfect and same goes for Page of Life which we...

Why have I missed the album Voices? :o Heard it on Youtube and found the CD at the swedish Ginza for like 9 bucks! Very high DR scores on that one. Not very fond of that album. The first track is a cheap Conquest of Paradise cash-in, but then it gets better. I don't listen to it that much though. V...
