Thanks to Array for this great recommendation. I'm especially impressed that this band is handled by one guy

Much of this album is senseless avant-garde wank, saved by scattered moments of structure.

So you are criticizing an avant-garde album for being avant-garde?

Kind of like criticizing drone for being repetitive.

As wank goes I prefer avant-garde wank to prog wank so I might allow this music access to my ears.

Not quite. I love avant-garde just as much as I love prog. This, however, lacks flow and riff structure. In other words: avant-garde for the sake of being avant-garde.

Isn't that the idea of avant-garde?

I'd prefer it to sound natural, this sounds forced.

Natural sounding avant-garde? That sounds almost like an oxymoron to me.

Nah I've seen people complaining about this band for being to much similar to Virus, hence sounding too "ordinary" or "natural" . I personally love it and think that it has great flow.

There's plenty of avant-garde music which sounds natural. By natural, I mean flow and structure. Avant-garde doesn't have to be a mess you know

If it has a natural flow and structure it probably isn't avant-garde

Conventional and natural aren't synonymous.

I never said it was. Not sure where you pulled "conventional" out of the air from.

Because conventional and avant-garde are essentially antonyms whereas natural has nothing to do with either. Here are a bunch of avant-garde bands with natural flow and structure: Omb, Dissona, Leprous, Estradasphere, Ihsahn, Back To R'lyeh, Torrential Downpour...

That's great, but I never mentioned anything about conventionality, as I said.

The only way you could assume that what I said was an oxymoron was if you assumed natural and conventional were related. I can't think of any other terms which would fit your assumption...

Maybe you should stop making assumptions then. Anyway, a debate on semantics is clearly off topic here so I'll end this debate here.
