I am missing Kino so much these days  :'(  Picture was such a romantic/melodic/refreshing/unpretentious piece of music ! Sorry, I guess this is not a very useful nor interesting remark but I had to let the words flow ...

Blind Ego is cool, but I don't think it sounds like Kino that much...

New album 'Radio Voltaire' to be released on 23td March 2018. Who would expect that? Here's the link:

Oh man! That is big news!! Fantastic! I never expected that!

Although, it would probably be very difficult to surpass the debut. "Picture" is the best example of a marriage between pop and prog. Some of that magic was brought over to It Bites (on a few songs), but still, nothing touches "Picture".

If "Radio Voltaire" is half as good as "Picture", I'll be more than satisfied. I hope it doesn't sound too much like Lonely Robot, because (although very good) I didn't notice the similarities so much that everyone was talking about.


Teunis, you totally made my day!

With these musicians it can't be a bad album :). The anticipation ...  8) ;).

Well... it DOES sound like Lonely Robot...

I really hope some more Kino-sounding songs will be on the album.
I don't mean to say this is a bad song, not at all! But there's no Kino magic on this song, for me.
Oh man... I'm sounding like a bitter fan... I WILL pre-order this as soon as I get the chance!

Indeed, this one could be on the last LR album, but it's only one song. Let's wait till we hear the entire album :).

Bit more like Kino, but still Lonely Robot. ;)

On some webshops you can already listen to samples of each song.
Most of it sounds a lot like Lonely Robot, but I also heard a few bits that sounded more Kino-like.
I also think this sounds proggier than "Picture". As if they decided that Loser's Day Parade was the direction that they would like to go. But that song (although very cool!) was not really representative for the whole album. I do have a feeling that we will be missing John Beck in the writing process...
But, you know, they are just (low quality) samples, so what am I even 'complaining'? (It's not really complaining, I'm just very protective of what I hold dear, in this case the first album.)
Oh so many different feelings and thoughts about this!
I'm Still VERY excited about this. Time to pre-order.

5 out of 10... :'(

Especially this part confirms my fears:

"In the bio that came with the album, it is noted the John wanted to create a third Lonely Robot album, but Inside Out told him it was too soon for that.  So, they asked him to do a new Kino album, which obviously is something that wasn’t on his mind."

Still, it's only one review. I'll see if I can find some other reviews.

That's not 'sounding' good, but it's indeed 1 review. I want to give the album a fair chance and form my own opinion. Bring it on :).
