HE! Extra - released by Eardose
James Miller says this is his final release as Solypsis, ever, and this time he means it (Vol. 1?). Future output will be under a different name to be determined later. (I do plan to issue further, now-"posthumous," compilations from the massive DVD-ROM Purge, and James has authorized this.)
So. It's a nice way to wrap things up, incorporating all the disparate bits of the story so far. There's the dark melodicism of, say, the Cyan Album, a dash of the uncompromising noise of The WLNT Sessions, and the masterful use of tension and release exhibited in One Week Without the Internet, all together in a coherent, mature, well-produced whole.
I can't wait to see what's next.
