Being impressed by their latest release 'Binary Suns (Part 1 - Operant Condition), I was curious what their back catalogue sounds like. Well, this album is also quality as far as I'm concerned. Will play it more often! :)

np: John Watts - The Iceberg Model
Youth sentiment. I have always been a fan of Fischer-Z and John Watts solo. This is my favourite solo album, enjoy it very much! 8)

I was listening to some of the albums that I like that were released in 2020.
I just made some sort of top 5 and a "best of the rest".

1. Inner Odyssey - "The Void"
2. Anubis - "Homeless"
3. Mangala Vallis - "Voices"
4. The Oneira - "Injection"
5. Psychotic Waltz - "The God-Shaped Void"

6-13 (not really any particular order):

Moon Halo - "Chroma"
Karfagen - "Birds Of Passage"
Jonathan Hultén - "Chants From Another Place"
Different Light - "Binary Suns (Part 1 - Operant Condition)"
JPL - "Sapiens Chapitre 1/3: Exordium"
Thoughts Factory - "Elements"
Blind Ego - "Preaching To The Choir"
Marsyas - "Emergence"

Still a lot can shift at this point. Even from the bottom list to some of the top 5. Although number one is so cool, I don't think it will ever leave the top 5.

By the way, Teunis, I think it's pretty cool that you like Different Light so much! 8)

Definitely, discovery of the year so far 8). Playing it very often, just like two purchases of mine which were released this year: Pendragon - Love Over Fear and Blind Ego - Preaching To The Choir.

Today
Kingcrow - The Persistence
Blind Ego - Preaching To The Choir

jp: Pattern-Seeking Animals - Prehensile Tales (Released today, it's on Spotify. Promising at first listening, needs more rotation though :))
np: Pure Reason Revolution - Eupnea

I also listened to this today. Really nice.

np: Pure Reason Revolution - Eupnea

Haha, I'm also listening to this at the moment. I think it's pretty nice stuff. But there's no definitive click yet. I wonder if it will get in my list of 2020 at the end of the year at all. Who knows.

I was also listening to:
Superthousand - "#TRNSIT"
Half an hour of Psychedelic but catchy music. I especially like the two epics Transit (11:27) and Safe And Now (9:42).

Iggy, without artist name it's very difficult to see what album you're actually taking about.
I did some research and found out it's The Beatles.
Are they any good? Do you recommend them?


;)


NP:
I Am The Manic Whale - "Things Unseen"
What a fantastic album! Wow! Anyone know this band? The epic Celebrity is really nice.
They remind me a bit of A.C.T. It's very musical-ish.
