Biography

We, the Legendary Pink Dots feel it is our duty to inform an unwary public that the new number of the Beast is 834. In fact we, the Legendary Pink Dots were instrumental in this turn of events. Let us explain...

5.0 out of 5 stars not a disappoinment September 16, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Although this album lacks the powerful captivating essence Shadow Weaver presented, I would firmly state this album to be a one of a kind musical treasue. (what else could one expect from the dots? only greatness my friend, only greatness)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Truly Great Work January 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a well crafted album from start to stop. The Pink Dots have long been, in my estimation, at the top of the electronic musical heap, and this album clearly affirms their dominance. I would place this musical work in the same sphere as Kind of Blue (Miles Davis) and Passion (Peter Gabriel). And, yes, this would be one of those I would include on my "Desert Island" list.

one of the 1st lpd albums i was exposed to - truly delightful. the music is at once haunting & uplifting, & edward's vocals make the experience otherworldly. the lyrics (as always) are sometimes disturbing, (as on distrubance!) sometimes idealistic, but always thought provoking
its hard to pick a fave where the dots are concerned, but this one might be it! do yourself a favor & get it, you won't regret it...

5.0 out of 5 stars one of their best (and that's saying a lot) May 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Legendary Pink Dots would deserve to be in a parallel level to such good bands as Pink Floyd, The Beatles or The Velvet Underground. But since that's something that cannot be changed now, let's comment this album, which is something so so good that I usually get sad when I think that most people won't ever listen to it, missing the opportunity to know another masterpiece of modern music.
The Maria Dimension is the album immediately after the psychedelically delicious 'The Crushed Velvet Apocalypse', and it's a perfect successor. Just as an anecdote, The maria Dimension is the LPD's best-seller, which is not saying a lot, but that's it.
In this album, as in the previous one, they employ a lot of different instruments: sitars, acoustic and electric guitars, saxophones, flutes, etc etc, all mixed with such subtle electronics that when I'm listening to it I can't avoid asking why most people say electronics are always cold and devoid of emotions. The Legendary Pink Dots is not an electronic band: just because The Legendary Pink Dots is not a band that can be labelled, and less becasue of the instruments they use: they use almost all instruments imaginable.
The Maria Dimension should be a good starter to taste LPD's music. There are delicious ballads ('The Ocean cried blue murder', 'Belladonna', 'Lilith'), amazing pieces of pure psychedelia ('The grain kings', 'Cheraderama', 'Crushed velvet'), and most of the 14 songs here are very very good.
'Disturbance' is a very electronic piece, quite up-tempo and without abrupt changes, with a saxophone at the end. A good piece.
'Pennies for heaven' is simply delicious.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful October 3, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is their best album (in my humble opinion)...but, then again, this was the first album I heard by them, so I have special feeling for it, anyway.
The music of LPD soothes while the lyrics...more akin to poetry than actual lyrics..causes your brain to begin fizzeling and popping as the magic of the words and sounds are woven around you.
Get this album if you don't already have it. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pink Barett May 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
It's a unique great psychedellic band. It is like Syd Barett would sound with Pink Floyd at the end of the XX. century.
