i haven’t, i must seek it out.
yeah i’d dipped into the first 2 previously but it wasn’t until Requiem came out that i got hooked on them (within seconds of the first song starting up properly i knew i was going to love it). i normally prefer short albums to long albums but i think the variety of Requiem probably makes it more engaging.
and yeah i think last.fm haemorrhaged users and contributors during that period particularly. used to be a great place for gig listings and now hardly anyone bothers to update them.
