Throbbing Gristle - The Third Mind Movements (2009) [FLAC&V0]

Here's the new Throbbing Gristle if anyone missed it, was exclusively sold at live performances in US, April 2009. The first five minutes I was slightly sceptic, but I'm definitely not disappointed. This feels great after "The Endless Not", which itself wasn't bad, it just didn't feel TG, it felt Coil-ish. TTMM is more subtly powerful, eerie, creepier and probably better, slightly reminiscent of some of their early stuff. I don't think they could ever outshine their earlier years though and I don't think that's what they're trying to accomplish either.

  10. As it was 'exclusively sold at live performances in the US in April' there isn't any more money for TG to make out of it anyway. I expect they'll reissue it anyway at some point though

  13. I think it's always sad when a band comes to the point where they will never "outshine" prior works. It's like Massive Attack's Mezzanine, or The Mars Volta's De-Loused in the Comatorium, those records will never be improved.

  14. I disagree caleb. I agree those albums you mentioned are amazing, but bands can recreate a new sound and still put out strong work, or whatever they feel like. It's sad when they try to better an album and the artwork ends up as a product and copycat.
