I loved the last Crystal Method Album, it's so good. It's like you're running over a field of eggshells, you know -crunchy!
The last Orbital is indeed very silly, but I heard that they are a little unpleased by life atm. One of the guys wife had a miscarriage and they all are a little stressed.
But I get your point what_evil_lurks.
You are so right, I'm really a bit depressed about all the lost artists. I also miss the Propheads very much. Maybe they are just preparing a new record. And I miss the old Chems and the old Fatboy. Sigh. But we had that already.
