    That whole documentary has dated very badly. Lemon D, Adam F, J Majik...fuck off. Almost the equivalent of Britpop hubris. Horrible. Then Optical, too. Bum-fluff face harbinger of doom. Gross.

    Dillinja sequence is the only redeeming feature.
    In hindsight it's easy to spot the writings on the wall. Around late '96 they began to believe all the media-hype themselves.

    Seriously considering doing a jungle radio show.

    Over the last few months, mostly playing it very loud in the car, I've developed a soft spot for this.

    1) It's not 'Wormhole'
    2) It's not really what it thinks it is, at its best

    Loud, now, it comes across as a cheesy, massive, enjoyable, silly prog-jungle mess. In that context, it's actually lovely. And then bashed to bits by the great 'Jah - the Seventh Seal' right after.

    Not taken at face value, it's better.

    Though I think Dilinjah did the heavy lifting here?

    This is a Dillinja remix, although it's not so clear (you have to check the credits)

    i think timeless is the most overrated album.

    parallel universe is infinitely better.

    the only good jungle LP is Black Secret Technology. resident tru kvlt junglist droid will confirm this.

    having said that, Timeless >> Parallel Universe for sure.

    Timeless is an overwrought mess that epitomizes jungle's descent into respectable elevator music but at least it has some nice bits, and some of the prog jungle bits are enjoyable. Parallel Universe is full on coffee table book middlebrow.

    1. Self Evident Truth Of An Intuitive Mind
    2. Black Secret Technology
    3. Timeless

    I've not heard Parallel Universe but did mildly enjoy "Two Pages" for the first time a few years back when I was drunk and had found it in a charity shop.

    Timeless brings back a lot of happy memories for me.

    Yes, that was my (very mild) case, and not enjoyable in the way he intended I suspect.

    Black Secret Technology sounded awful on CD, though. The sound quality ruined the music.

    ya I thought of that about 5 minutes after I posted + mentally kicked myself

    it is, more than BST, edging into "drum + bass", i.e. serious mid-90s techno overtones (iirc a couple tracks don't even have any breakbeats)

    still I'd definitely count it as a good jungle LP

    there's also a few compilations - Deepest Cut Vol. 1, Just An Example, etc - that are great but not actual LPs like BST or Timeless

    that is the nature of all true prog

    surely blissblogger or somebody has done a major thinkpiece somewhere on the metaconcept of prog across genres, through the ages?

    this is making me reconsider Acen as prog ardkore

    while we're on the topic I have always loved the Christoph de Babalon LP, talking about things that are prog and not quite jungle
