I definitely agree ...

Crystal Machine is cool if you're into real noodly synth stuff; almost like
Tangerine Dream meets Silver Apples.  I never heard Magick, but I wasn't
that thrilled about the show I saw on that tour.  Sounded too new-age and
not spacey enough for me.  (plus, he was being a jerk to the people who
actually went to the effort of putting on a show in San Jose of all places)
