Maus Space

I've continually had a liking for the mystical, but it wasn't until I matured a little iota that I discovered John Maus!

Not sure how to post an image from the booklet but the words to Believer are illuminating !

The online guesses at the lyrics seem quite different to the booklet ... would post them but can't figure out how to ... when i click "Img" it doesn't let me choose the file ...

Had a big old upset when I got my box set only to find a 2 inch long, quite heavy scratch on the front of the slipcase, right above the monitor in the photograph! Brooded on it a bit, hoping it would just go away while knowing it wasn't going to, ever, then decided to try emailing Domino - who put a replacement in the post straight away, free of charge. Nice! |:o So I now have an immaculate slipcase - phew! :dancparty:

Faves - Outer Space, Dumpster Baby, Middle Ages, Second Death, Episode. Love the machinegun drums on Mind the Droves... I see sunlight reflecting on dark tinted chrome during Privacy... I wonder if JM's used neural networks for the composition of Middle Ages - it becomes musically a bit puzzling around half way through, but apart from that, for me it just has that kind of 'feel' that a non-human hand was involved in its structuring... dunno... also not a great deal of verse-chorus-middle8-verse etc type stuff in these tracks, feels like he's pushing the envelope somewhat, which is good to hear... anyway - it's a winner! And so nice to have another LP so soon after the last one! 8D

This shit is ridiculous! Their selling these at a 4 or 5x mark up.

"Last sold: Never" And I'd like to think it'll stay that way until there's a proper reduction in the prices! But who knows...

For me, this album is miles better than Screen Memories, not to say Screen Memories isn't great.

Favourites - Running Man, I Want To Live, Outer Space, Mind The Droves, Privacy

Are the older records (Songs, Love Is Real) included in the boxset the original Upset the Rhythm releases or new pressings?

Would anyone be willing to sell either record? Never got around to buying those two and the prices are insane as of late.

Mine arrived! I was getting worried for a while but it's here and magnificent. I'm really glad he signed all the pressings and included the book of sheet music, at last I can learn to play some of his songs properly.

They are new pressings I think. I couldn't sell mine though, I just bought the one and I love it. A few people here did buy two so maybe you could get one from them? Not to throw MysteryGuest under the bus but he does have a damaged box set so you could ask him if he'd want to sell it.

Otherwise I think waiting for a while might bring the prices down. Right now people are trying to take advantage of people desperately trying to get a set but that hysteria will fade away soon and the prices will come down a bit.

Man... that’s rough.

But i did enjoy reading a lot of John’s interaction with his fans on that Reddit thing. Just confirms what a fascinating, real kinda guy he is (real? As opposed to wot?)
