    I've been listening to the latest LP from Canadian experimental music collective Godspeed You! Black Emperor, which was released last week, the curiously named G_d's Pee AT STATE'S END. I have this on vinyl, nicely produced sleeve, and the four tracks are over a 12" and a 10" records. It's still growing on me...

    These recordings really need several listenings to completely unfold.
    This one sounds even like Oldfield on some notes while simple structures like in "Fire at Static Valley" can suck me in completely.
    Indeed a great album.

    Iím not sure about this relatively new term - Collective. Is it different to Band in some way? It seems to be appearing in reviews everywhere.

    Guess they mean it as members often change or are part of other bands, guest musicans and alike.
    Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra and the Tra-La-La Band for example pretty much also is GY!BE plus others.

    I donít mind that definition but itís another buzz word that has crept into reviews as a synonym for band in some places as well. Iím sure the use on the original post Iím referring to is correct. Itís just something Iíve noticed recently as I now almost always read the review from MAI as Iím listening! Blame Craig.

    When I see "collective" I think of a performing group with variable members. The "collective" is the total collection, a subset of which might appear on any given recording. I've always thought of Toronto's Broken Social Scene as a collective, and Wikipedia uses both "band" and "collective" in the same sentence, but without confusion:

    "Broken Social Scene is a Canadian indie rock band, a musical collective including as few as six and as many as nineteen members, formed by Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning.[1] Most of its members play in various other groups and solo projects, mainly in the city of Toronto. These associated acts include Metric, Feist, Stars, Apostle of Hustle, Do Make Say Think, KC Accidental, Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton, Amy Millan, and Jason Collett."

    Looked at this way a musical collective can be a kind of band, but not all bands are collectives.

    I might add that anything members of this collective touch is potential musical gold.

    I note that one of the players on this promising set of music is Greg Liesz, the pedal steel player on the Charles Lloyd and the Marvels album discussed above.

    Reflection Club - Still Thick As A Brick

    This is definitely a worthy sequel for Thick As A Brick by Jethro Tull (maybe even more than Ian Anderson's TAAB2 from a few years ago).

    Reflection Club is a new project of multi-instrumentalist Lutz Meinert from Berlin, Germany. The sound is very close to Jethro Tull of that time, including the flute. And even the singer's voice matches that of Ian Anderson quite good.
    This tribute album is not a simple copy but tells a new story and even comes with a fictitious magazine.
    Here is an album teaser on YouTube.
