Great James, then I might as well put Henry Cow in there with your suggestions and make a poll Boo, you should consider making a short write-up as well!

I think we might make a general policy that we do polls on thursdays so if a suggestion comes after that, it's valid for next week's poll. Then we get thursday, friday, saturday and sunday to vote for the coming week's album.

Dun-Eros

Eros is a Zeuhl album (Zeuhl is a subgenre of Avant-prog originating from France that describes a blend of Modern Classical, Prog Rock and Jazz), but it's so much more than that. This album had a huge influence on Math-Rock and the best description i've saw of it is, "A blend between Zappa and Mahavishnu Orchestra with Mathy overtones". The Zappa influence is rather obvious, especially in the time signatures which are just crazy. After the powerful opening track the music takes a more atmospheric turn. The titletrack is a personal highlight with the slow build-up of the flute until the breathtaking climax. This album also has some outstanding Xylophone playing, which for me is a very underrated instrument.This album truly leaves me on the edge of my seat, completely and utterly thrilling. This is the best Prog album of the 80's in my mind, nothing can beat it. A lot of Zeuhl you hear(I haven't heard much though) is just boring and does exactly what it says on the tin, but this takes it to a new level. It takes Zeuhl and turns it into something outstanding. So please vote for this album, it's a masterpiece and i'd love some other opinions on it. Plus if you haven't already heard it(Although this club is usually dominated by major Progheads so you probably have) you must, leaves me in awe every time I play it.

Brilliant James Another good album I know I like but which I also would like to listen to more. I'll construct a poll later on and then hope that we get some votes from someone else than just us 3.

I just found out about that club. So I'm sure I'll be one of the participants (not much the one suggesting albums though).
But I wonder, where's Anteater in this club?

Brilliant NumberNine Anteater's just busy or something, I think. I know he's aware of the club's existance!

Alright, I've made the poll! In the future, I'll make it on thursdays every week. When I get to the office on monday, I'll put the poll in the thread graveyard and announce the result as well as create a discussion thread for Focus' Moving Waves.

I would like to participate, at least this time. All three albums in the poll have piqued my interest, especially Henry Cow's. I've heard it maybe once or twice, and always meant to get back to it. It certainly demands one's full attention. I've never even heard of Dun, but I youtubed some of the songs and it's very interesting.

And I have a question. When an album is picked, do we discuss it through formal reviews, or through a more free discussion, like a conversation, or anything goes?

Great dankrsta

Every monday, I make a discussion thread for last week's album. Whenever I make a "PFAC thread", I make an announcement post here in this thread and I also add all relevant links to the first post. If you check it out now, you'll find links to the discussion threads for the previous albums. On monday, I'll create a thread for Focus' Moving Waves and then a week later for one of the three albums we're polling over now.

^^Thanks for explaining. So we'll have a whole week between choosing an album and a discussion thread for it. Great, that's enough time for it to sink in.
