    No-Man
    Love You To Bits (cd/vinyl pre-order)

    Comprising two connected five-part pieces, Love You To Bits marks the gloriously ambitious return of no-man (the duo of Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson).

    Available on CD (with card signed by artist Carl Glover), black vinyl, and as an exclusive blue vinyl edition (limited to 1000 copies with an art print signed by Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson).

    Pre-order for Quote

  3. wasn't going to order this but in the end caved for the blue version. I have all the No Man releases on vinyl and cd/dvd, often multiple copies so I guess it was a given I'd give in the end.
    Going by the clip on YT it's a different sound to the last few releases.

    Wasn’t expecting this to sound like that! No details of a hi-res or 5.1 though? I will wait to see what the digital options look like.

    Same here. It sounds nothing like the No Man I'm used to. I might have to get this.

    "Flowermouth" and "Loveblows" are so overdue for a reissue......

    Check out Loveblows & Lovecries for something not totally dissimilar.

    A SW video that features a disco ball? Is the commercial direction he took with “To The Bone” a momentary bump in the road or a general trend of the future?

    First single from the new album is out today. Just downloaded the 24bit version from Qobuz. Sounds great. The b-side is a non-LP instrumental track that is exclusive to the cassette physical release and this digital single.

    I'm not listening to any tasters Just looking forward to hearing it all in one go.
    Just noticed Amazon UK have reduced the price of both the CD and LP.

    Love You To Bits - bit 1



    This album was going to be an automatic purchase for me but after hearing this I think I'll try to hear some more tracks before deciding. Although I enjoyed LOveblows & Lovecries this sounds a bit too commercial for me.
     
  13. Loving this. At last a Prog Disco album. I always knew it was possible. A fully realised piece of music. Always interesting. Often inventive with some wild widdley bits. It rocks. It pumps. It funks. Welcome to 2019. Recognise a lot of early Porcupine Tree motifs pulling through the Moroder synths.

    Postman brought mine today and was able to listen straightaway before heading to work. My first impression is that working on all those 5.1 remixes must have really rubbed off on SW as the stereo sound-stage is enormous. It really reaches round the sides of the room. For a 'dance' album the dynamics are terrific. From a first listen it's King Crimson plays Love to Love You Baby.

    Man this album is good. Bit 4 is my favourite part but LU2Pieces is my favourite overall.
     
  19. What with this and the new prog epic by Coldplay ... the crossover has truly begun.

    That guitar solo in bit4 is insane.

    If this song is indicative, it sounds like they are returning to the sound of albums like Flowermouth.

    People sometimes forget that one of Steven's early influences was Donna Summer.
