I cannot, of course, fault Eric's and Buck's apparent decisions to "coast" with 2ÖC. I mean, it's not like they are beholden to me or anything. Why should they not run their side of things however they feel like. As Pippi Långstrump might say: "Är det inte ett fritt land?" ("Isn't it a free country?").  On the other hand, as a fan -- as a person who _likes_ to see new creations -- it's really not even a conscious choice for me what kind of approach I _prefer_ (or would prefer) ... :)

Equally, I am not sure that I very much _like_ much of the recent HW output. But I at least _like_ that some bunch of guys is trying to do _something_. That way, there's at least a chance that they _could_ produce something I would like more. :)

Al: Is Blue Coupe on Bandcamp or something? I know you're on iTunes :) but I still balk at buying less-than-CD-quality files for similar prices to CDs (as remains the case on iTunes).  CD postal deliveries are effectively impossible in Colombia, so I need to go digital ... but I want to go as snobbishly upscale digital as possible. :)    (Still, iTunes would be better than niTunes .... ;)
