Thanks for a nice feedback @dollarsandcents
Sophia formed out of The God Machine. TGM were seriously heavy (with some very beautiful bits), Sophia very quiet (but also beautiful). Both produced some fantastically sad music. I still occasionally settle in with a bottle of red wine to the first two Sophia albums for those special melancholic moments. I’ve seen Sophia mentioned a couple of time and I’m guessing others will have gone with the same song as me (The River Song), but that’s actually not that typical of the first couple of albums (the sound filled out more after those). But I’d suggest starting with the those as I think they are forgotten classics (The Infinite Circle and Fixed Water), and then work forward if you like them. And if you like heavy music I can’t recommend The God Machine highly enough, particularly Scenes From the Second Storey.
